  • dramatic pitch swoops in perfect time with the music
  • make drums sound bigger without losing the attack
  • intelligent gating system
  • instant octave down, play bass lines on any instrument
  • none of the uneven sounds typical of pitch shifters
  • no added delay, such as is always present in pitch shifters
  • pitch can follow the volume of the input signal, for "talking drum" type effects
  • remix beats to make them your own
  • take any percussion instrument, and make it sound larger with lower pitch and longer decay
  • dramatic flanger type sounds, triggered by the beat

Remix Demo 548kB

A beat is heard, then a brief pause, then the beat is looped, and each repeat is given a different Chopitch treatment.

Bass Demo 308kB

A line played on ordinary 6 string guitar sounds exactly like an electric bass. We overdubbed a guitar line treated with the Chopitch "Hawaiian Guitar" preset.

Tabla played by Renu Hossein. The original sample, followed by 4 versions altered using Chopitch.

Drum'N'Bass 246kB

Using a sample from a magazine cover disk (Cyclick Samples-Future Music June2004). The original sample, followed by 3 groups of versions altered using Chopitch. 1. Changing pitch of first the Hi-Hat, then just the Kick Drum (first repeat is straight unprocessed) 2. Electro variations. 3.Tone generation by feedback.

Talking Drum 541kB

A small drum is heard unprocessed (it's a clay darbukka with a 5in head). Then it's heard through the "talking drum preset", and 3 variations. Next it's put through the "big drum" preset, after which we used a 2 octave drop to make it sound like a 20in drum, a downward bend to low pitch to make a kick drum, and lastly some octave down with a hint of feedback to give a sound more like a larger jembe drum.
