Dubspot instructor and Maschine specialist Matt Cellitti takes a deeper look at Native Instruments’ latest Maschine update (1.8), which adds many new functions including one in particular that users have been asking for since the beginning: audio time stretching.
Perhaps the single most requested feature from Maschine users has made its way into the recent 1.8 update: Time Stretching. An incredibly useful tool for remixing, sampling, and sound design, time stretching ultimately allows the user to work with audio samples at whatever bpm they wish, all the while retaining the sound’s inherent pitch and timbre. Slow audio down or speed it up, pitch it up or pitch it down–anything goes. In this tutorial, we will take a look at several common uses for time stretching, and consider a brief history of how sampling worked before this powerful tool existed. - Matt Cellitti
