ASAP v1.2.0 - New Release

:rocket: ASAP version 1.2.0 is available with the Stretch Life plug-in!

IRCAM has updated the ASAP plug-ins collection and introduced the new plug-in Stretch Life. The Stretch Life plugin allows you to create and move time markers in order to stretch or compress the sound in time. Thanks to an intelligent algorithm, resulting from many years of work and experimentation, the temporal transformations offer an exceptional rendering quality by preserving the pitch of the harmonic components of the sound and the random characteristics of the noisy parts.

You can discover Stretch Life and its features on this new video !

Thanks to the ergonomic interface allowing real-time visualization of the transformations on the spectrogram, the plug-in opens up new creative and original possibilities. The many marker editing operations provide fast and efficient solutions for sound engineers to synchronize tracks, resample audio files, and more.
