Pitch Audio Filter

The Pitch filter lets you change how high or low the sound is with respect to frequency (not loudness).

One may use this effect to disguise a voice or create a silly sounding voice. It is very useful to use in conjunction with the Speed option in Properties, which inherently changes the pitch. Thus, this filter can be used to correct the pitch. You can simply copy the speed value from Properties to the Speed Compensation parameter in the Pitch filter!

The Octave Shift parameter is a different way to represent the change in musical form. There are eight whole steps in music between each octave. Thus, each whole step corresponds to increments or decrements of 0.125.

Has this filter been renamed? Or does it need to be installed as an add-on (if so how?)
The screenshot above looks exactly what I need, but when I go to Filters > Audio on my track, there is no such filter called “Pitch” in the list, it goes from “Pan” to “Reverb”.

I know how to do this with Audacity, it’s just that it’s a bit of a pain to export, change Tempo, export, add track - for something that can apparently (and should) be a one-click operation.

Oops, I wasn’t using the latest version of the product. Just upgraded, found the Pitch filter, with a nice Pitch Compensation checkbox added next to the Speed property. Nicely done!

Is there any way to get a finer pitch control? Background: I’m editing a virtual orchestra and it would be cool to be able to correct intonation - this would require pitch control in something like cent scale (1/100th of a semitone), but the smallest adjustment possible right now seems to be one semitone.

Btw I love the software, keep up the good work!
