- 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.
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.
