Fellow Cubase 5 Users and - Guru’s
I have a question on time stretching (TS) a noise sweep audio sample.
The noise sweep had an original tempo 128 and a bit depth of 16 bit. I imported it into my project at a tempo of 102 and converted the bit depth to 32-bit. I used the PolyComplex algorithm.
However, now the sample has a “bathroom” effect to it.
Is that phasing?
Is there a better way to keep the integrity of the original sample?
Is there a difference between using the loopbrowser and the “File/Import/Audio” option.
I’ve tried to convert the stereo file to mono, duplicate it and off-set both slightly to get the stereo effect back. It helped slightly, but with obvoius timing problems (in terms of the project). Adding a bit of distortion also assisted.
The bottom line is, I’m not really satisfied with the result.
So by the way, would Cubase 6’s “new/additional” time tretching alogarithm fare better in this instance (with noise sweeps). I’m sure it will fare better with more frequency specific, tempo based samples.
Any relevant advice would be welcome, even suggestions on quality brands of slower tempo samples with FX sweeps.
