HELLO. I HAVE BEEN A USER OF BOTH PLATINUM AND MIXED IN KEY SINCE THE BEGINNING AND LOVE THEM.
I'M CURRENTLY RECORDING MY VINYL COLLECTION ONTO THE MAC USING AIFF AND MP3 FORMATS.
I'VE NEVER USED THE PITCH CORRECTION OPTION IN THE PAST, BUT AM INTERESTED IN USING IT NOW.
I SEE NOW THERE ARE OPTIONS FOR "ADJUSTING THE TEMPO TO CORRECT THE PITCH" OR "CHANGE THE PITCH AND NOT THE TEMPO".
OBVIOUSLY MY VINYL RIPS ARE NEVER GOING TO BE PERFECT TEMPO (BPM), AND I'VE HAD TO WARP SOME OF THEM IN ABLETON TO ENABLE THEM TO BE BEATGRIDDED IN TRAKTOR AND REKORDBOX EASILY.
MY QUESTION IS, IF I USE THE "ADJUST TEMPO TO CORRECT PITCH", IS IT LIKELY TO PULL THE TEMPO OR BPM INTO A MORE PERFECT GRID? SIMILAR TO WARPING?
I WOULD LOVE IT IF THIS WAS THE CASE.
THANK YOU FOR ALL THE GREAT WORK ON THESE PROGRAMS.

Hey there,

Another great question :)

We have two options for pitch correction, which you can see in this screenshot:

Option #1: Vinyl-style. If the pitch of the song is too low, we increase the BPM to make the song more high-pitched. This is equivalent to increasing the pitch on your CDJ or turntable. This is the safest, most gentle way to correct pitch problems without affecting audio quality, but obviously it’ll change the BPM of the output file.

Option #2: Re-pitch. We fix the pitch, but keep the exact same BPM. This what you would get if you used Ableton Live’s “Complex” repitch mode. We use an algorithm called Elastique Pro from zplane.development, a well-known German company that’s at the core of many DJ products.

I want to clarify that Platinum Notes is not like Auto-Tune. It doesn’t add crazy repitch effects that sound like T-Pain or Cher. Instead, it corrects the whole track at once. So if it was 25% off key before processing, it would become 0% off-key after processing.

Let me know if it helps :)
