No matter what style of electronic music you make, creative timestretching effects are essential. But the hassle of processing audio on your DAW’s timeline can interrupt your studio workflow – which is why Cableguys’ ingenious new effect is so damn useful!
Scoring 10/10 in Computer Music issue 251, HalfTime (PC/Mac, VST/AU) is a creative effects plugin for instant ‘slow-down’ and half-speed effects. Load up the plugin on a channel, punch the big Power button, and your signal will be pitched down to half speed, all in real time!
For more creative tweaks, three speed modes are available: 2x, 1.5x and 4x. Introduce the effect gradually by applying a Fade In or Out of up to 16 bars. Adjust Loop Length for customisable rhythms. Apply the effect to only a specific frequency range with the Band section. And generate unique blends with the dry/wet Mix control.
