The secret is a free app for Windows & PC, Paul’s Extreme Sound Stretch.
It is designed specifically for extreme sound stretching of the audio (like 50x) and for applying special effects by “spectral smoothing” the sounds. It can transform any sound/music to a texture. The program is Open-Source and it’s released under the version 2 of the General Public License.
- It produces high quality extreme sound stretching. While most sound stretching software sounds bad when trying to stretch the sounds a lot, this one is optimized for extreme sound stretching. So, the stretch amount is unlimited.
- You can play the stretched sound in real-time (including the possibility to “freeze” the sound) or you can render the whole sound or a part of it to audio files
- It has many post-processing effects, like: filters, pitch/frequency shifters
- Support for WAV, OGG VORBIS files and MP3 files
- It is Free Software
I’ve embedded several more examples below, which feature science fiction themes with extreme audio stretching.
