Time Shift


High-quality time stretching

Time Shift is a free AudioSuite plug-in that delivers high-quality time stretching and pitch shifting for all Pro Tools systems. Equipped with four distinct algorithms, Time Shift lets you tailor the processing to different types of source material. Choose Polyphonic to change a guitar or keyboard performance, or a full mix. Select Monophonic if you’re altering vocals or solo instruments. Pick Rhythmic to compress or stretch a loop. Or use Varispeed when you’re converting the sample rate of an audio file.

Time Shift is bundled with Pro Tools | FirstPro Tools and Pro Tools | HD.
