Hands-on with zplane reTune 1.2

With its input/output matrix representing the source and target notes of the scale, zplane reTune lets you easily change up the pitch of your audio material in real time, whether for corrective or creative uses.

The technology behind reTune comes from time and pitch experts zplane, whose algorithms power the stretching, shifting and warping functions in some of the world’s leading DAWs.

With its version 1.2 update, reTune adds microtuning and MIDI control, which can be used for surgical fine-tuning or creative production alike. In our latest hands-on video, we take you through these new features.
