Digidesign ships X-Form

Digidesign is now shipping X-Form, a new high-quality AudioSuite plug-in that delivers time compression/expansion and pitch-shifting technology. X-Form adds time-stretching and formant-correct pitch shifting to Pro Tools and Avid DNA systems to produce natural-sounding results; the plugin can be used for music production, sound design, post production, or any other application that requires time-stretch and pitch-shift processing. "The secret to X-Form's natural-sounding, polyphonic, time-stretching algorithm is frequency domain processing, a technology proven more effective than the 'frame overlap' algorithms used in most time-stretching products," reveals Digidesign Senior Product Manager Bobby Lombardi. He also added that the goal is to "provide Pro Tools users with the highest quality time-stretching and pitch-shifting processing available in the market." X-Form features minimal controls to simplify the workflow: it can process audio 1/8 to eight times its original length, or shifted up or down three octaves. X-Form is available now for $600.
