P Softhouse has updated CHRONOStream to version 2.0. The Windows time and pitch scaling software processes audio seven times faster, according to the company.
CHRONOStream uses the company’s PHISYX 2 (Phase Interpolated and Synchronized Expansion) engine for controlling phases in audio. Time and pitch can be changed independently, so you can speed up or slow down the audio with out any pitch change, or change the pitch without making your audio file any shorter or longer in duration.
“Its pitch shifting technology will help professional music creators to manipulate their audio resources as what they wish,” notes Hatakeyama Keiki, a chief executive officer at P Softhouse.
CHRONOStream2 has been upgraded with the following features.
- Rendering speed is now about seven times faster with lower CPU load. Users can see the results of their work almost immediately.
- In addition to the Mix and Solo processing algorithms, a new Rhythm algorithm has been added to handle percussive audio properly.
- There is also a new Formant Control for more natural sounding pitchshifted vocals, or changing formats to make a male sound more like a female.
Software list price: 16,800 Yen. Upgrade price: 8,400 Yen
