Reposting my request from the 3.8 thread:
One last thing that's prevented me from switching from Winamp to XMplay fully: I'd love to be able to change the replay sample rate of an MP3. This would naturally change the pitch and also tempo.
The uses for such a function:
- to breathe new life into a track you've heard a hundred times, to which your brain has become desensitized.
- to experience the music more in-depth if you slow down a fast track a lot.
Please note that I'm not asking for time stretch (which usually produces unpleasant artifacts -- I'm talking about playing something sampled at 44100 Hz at say 42000 Hz or 45000 Hz, etc.).
I suggest granularity (units steps) 10 Hz or percentage of original rate (+/- integer percentage point) or, if you are brave, in cents (one half step of the Equal Temperament tuning system divides into 100 cents).
Hotkeys to increase, decrease and reset the deviation would be great!
PS - The feature doesn't have to be in the core XMPlay. If it's done only via the DirectSound plugin, I'd be supper happy too!
