How to change tuning of recording to A3 = 432Hz
« on: April 18, 2011, 06:11:25 pm »

I record and write music that has a healing vibration and am
considering releasing a version of my music tuned to A3 = 438 Hz.

I'd like to know the best way to accomplish this.

The recording is done using piano ( and string ) sample libraries,
especially Philharmonik ( Miroslav Vitous library ).

I've played with tuning A3 down 32cents however the samples
sound off.

If I was mastering to analog I'd just slow the tape down. 

What would be the way to accomplish this in the digital domain
while preserving the integrity and smoothness of the original instruments
as much as possible?

I use cubase.

thank you for considering

Paul Gasztold

PS.  If there is a better place to post this please let me know.

Blissful healing music...

You will have to auto-tune or pitch correct your samples first.  Any plug in or outboard synth/module will have this feature built in .     Synths will be fine, but all samples will have to go through a mudulation of some sort sinc ethey are live samples recorded at 440.  IMO, the loss of realness your modulating each sample will do might not be worth it, unless your heart is set on that sound.

Serato Pitch N Time is great for this.  Given as you are going from 440 to 432 it should sound pretty flawless.  Process each track individually and see where it falls.  Good luck.

title says 432.



post says  438.



2 cents is not worth it imo.

everything is fluctuating more than that always, except a digital sine wave.
