We're pleased to announce the release of elastic~ today! A pitch-shifting time-stretching looping Max object built around the same algorithm used by Cubase, Ableton, and Kontakt.
elastic~ works very much like the established groove~ object found in the standard MaxMSP library but with two totally independent controls: Pitch and Speed. The algorithm used is designed specifically for 'musical' material, allowing a natural sounding pitch-shift up to an octave above and below the original pitch of your sample, whilst playing back at up to double or half speed.
If you want to see the sort of thing possible with elastic~ have a look at the video demo at www.elasticmax.co.uk/#demo
