Pitch 'n Time
Time-Stretching & Pitch-Shifting
Serato Pitch 'n Time is a high quality time-stretching and pitch-shifting AudioSuite software plug-in for the Pro Tools platform. Serato Pitch 'n Time will work with all versions of Pro Tools (4.0 and higher) including Pro Tools free on the Mac and PC.
Serato Pitch 'n Time offers time compression and expansion from a ratio of 1/8 speed through to 8 x speed independent of pitch, and pitch shifting of up to 36 semitones independent of tempo.
The time-stretching and pitch-shifting functions each have three interchangeable panels, ranging from simple fixed ratios to complex tempo and pitch alterations that vary over time. You can even warp the timing of your samples just by placing markers and moving them around.
The tempo and pitch panels can be mixed and matched to suit your application, with real time previewing.
Rane Series Graphic EQ
The Rane Series Graphic EQ is a TDM plug-in for the Avid Pro Tools HD or VENUE platforms. It combines the pristine sound quality and excellent features of Rane's top-of-the-line hardware, the DEQ 60/60L, with the ease of a functional graphical user interface.
The problem with traditional graphic equalizers is band interaction; you move one slider and all surrounding bands are affected. The Graphic EQ eliminates this problem, with Rane's Perfect Q™ technology, previously only available in their award winning hardware. The Graphic EQ forces the response curve to pass through every slider so the response follows exactly the slider positions on screen, giving you the ability to notch out a single frequency or create the exact curve you want.
The Graphic EQ features 31 bands of equalization, 3 simple overall tone controls and a low- and high-cut filter pair to help shape your sound without sacrificing a filter band. It also includes a color coded response graph to display the overall gain and phase change so you can see at a glance the overall effect your settings are having on the audio.
Rane Series Parametric EQ
The Rane Series Parametric EQ is a TDM plug-in for the Avid Pro Tools HD or VENUE platforms. It combines the pristine sound quality and excellent features of Rane's top-of-the-line hardware, the PEQ 55, with the ease of a functional graphical user interface.
The Rane Series Parametric EQ is a very comprehensive EQ. Not only does it provide an incredibly clean and natural sound even at the extremes beyond the point where most parametric EQs would start to sound grainy, but it is the most flexible parametric EQ with ten bands that can each be moved from 12.5Hz to 20kHz and are all independently switchable between high or low shelf and bell filters.
The Parametric EQ includes a color coded response graph to display the overall gain and phase change so you can see at a glance the overall effect your settings are having on the audio.
Rane Series Dynamics
Compressor & Gate
The Rane Series Dynamics consists of 2 TDM plug-ins for the Avid Pro Tools HD or VENUE platforms: the Rane Series Compressor and the Rane Series Gate. It combines the pristine sound quality and excellent features of Rane's top-of-the-line hardware, the C4 Compressor and G4 Gate, with the ease of a functional graphical user interface.
The Rane Series Compressor
The Rane Series Compressor is a fully featured compressor/limiter that gives you the ability to create a wide range of effects from the smooth and subtle to the squashed and extreme. In compressor mode you can key from a fully adjustable parametric EQ on the side chain. Alternatively you can use dynamic EQ mode for de-essing or selectively compressing any frequency relative to the rest of your mix.
The Rane Series Gate
A comprehensive Gate, Ducker and Expander, the Serato Rane Series Gate allows you to achieve impressive clarity and headroom from your mixes. Look-ahead delay and program-dependant pre-ramping provides you not only with click free gating but you'll never miss another transient.
