Avid X-Form - Electronic Delivery – No Longer Available

Unparalleled time stretching and pitch shifting for Pro Tools and Avid Systems
MFR# 9910-55450-00

Product Description

Avid is now shipping X-Form, a new high-quality AudioSuite plug-in for time compression/expansion and pitch-shifting.

Avid X-Form at a Glance:

  • Two time-stretch/pitch-shift algorithms
  • Extreme stretching with amazing sound quality
  • Intuitive control

Two time-stretch/pitch-shift algorithms
To help give you the best results with a wide variety of source material, X-Form provides a choice of two time-stretching/pitch-shifting algorithms.  The Polyphonic algorithm is ideal for use on complex audio files, such as chords or an entire stereo mix.  This algorithm is truly "best in breed," and when used with the Transient Sensitivity control, it allows you to compress or stretch drum loops and other percussive material without losing crucial attack transients.  When working with solo instruments or vocals, choose the Monophonic algorithm.  Of course, experimenting with both algorithms is the key to obtaining the perfect effect.

Extreme stretching with amazing sound quality
Each of X-Form's algorithms was designed to provide exceptional results capable of preserving proper stereo imaging, attack transients, and timing accuracy-even at extreme settings.  With X-Form, you can process files within a mind-blowing range of 12.5 to 800 percent of the original length (1/8 to 8x the original duration).  The pitch shifting is equally impressive, allowing you to shift a file up or down three octaves with proper formant correction-even on polyphonic material-so the audio sounds completely natural.  How is this possible?  The secret is the X-Form plug-in's frequency domain processing, a technology proven more effective than the "frame overlap" algorithms used in most time-stretching products.

Intuitive control
Fortunately, X-Form makes using this powerful technology ultra-intuitive. Simply choose an algorithm and let X-Form do the rest. While other products require you to experiment with a myriad of confusing controls to get the desired results, X-Form delivers natural-sounding time stretching and pitch shifting via a single "Time Shift" control and the Process button. The X-Form algorithm can even be used from within the TCE Trim Tool (for Pro Tools 7.2 or higher). Whether you work in post and need to fit audio to video clips, or produce music and want to tune a performance or sync up loops, X-Form provides seamlessly integrated professional time stretching and pitch shifting within Pro Tools.

Features:

  • AudioSuite plug-in for Pro Tools|HD, LE, and M-Powered
  • Professional and flexible time stretching and formant-correct pitch shifting for monophonic and polyphonic audio material
  • Minimal controls for simplified workflow and professional results
  • Easy-to-read display fields for viewing audio region start and stop times for both processed and unprocessed files in multiple time base formats
  • Pro Tools TCE Trim Tool (for Pro Tools 7.2 or higher) support for increased time-stretching/pitch-shifting workflow efficiency
  • Multichannel and multi-input phase-coherent processing
  • Professional time compression/expansion with 12.5- to 800-percent range for processing a file from 1/8 to eight times its original duration
  • Professional pitch shifting from three octaves below to three octaves above the original pitch
  • AudioSuite file-based processing; supports Pro Tools|HD®, Pro Tools LE, Pro Tools M-Powered, and Avid DNA systems

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.

I am a new customer of yours. You guys provided me the absolute best deals in ordering all the equipment to power my brand new recording studio. Your customer service is amazing and i will always deal with you from here on out.
