Been searching how to do this the easiest way but can't find anything I understand...

How can I take a sound clip and simply slow it down by 50%?

Thanks

There are two ways you can go about this:

1. Import the clip into the arrange Window, right-click on the wave form and select 'Process' from the pop-up menu. From that menu, select 'Time Stretch' and voila... a window dedicated to your purpose will appear!

2. Buy an Apple. Buy Logic Studio. You'll buy yourself some peace of mind.

:)

Hope this helps!

Apples are nice, and so is logic, if you want to drop $3,000 on a set-up. I'd love to have it, but I'm running a PC with Cubase SX-3 like you. The "Time Stretch" function will do what you're looking for. Good luck on your project.

Mac's aren't cheap, but really - are they that much more than a comparable PC-based recording rig? Let's be fair and look at two comparably specced machines available today. You'll see that it's far more cost-effective to go with a Mac running Logic Studio - plus you get a heck of a lot more, including 20% more screen real-estate!

APPLE iMAC

- 2.8GHz Intel Core 2 Extreme Processor
- 2 GB SD RAM
- 24" Monitor
- 500GB SATA Drive
- Mac OSX Leopard, loaded with Garageband 2008

PRICE : $2299 (with Logic Studio : $2798)

vs

DELL XPS ONE PC
- 2.33GHz Intel Core 2 Duo Processor
- 2 GB SD RAM
- 20" Monitor
- 500GB SATA Drive
- Windows VISTA Home Premium Edition (Whatever the heck that means in Vista babble-land)

PRICE - $2199 (with Cubase 4 : $2,998)

Cheers =)

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention - With a Mac, you also get far less BS trial software, far less crashes, far less freeze-ups, far less viruses and a whole lot more fun out of using a computer again. Something that's been long overdue now. Logic also comes with hundreds of loops, better virtual instruments, a bad-ass drum machine, mastering software, live implementation plus an easier learning curve, (if you're starting out with a DAW) - Okay... i've rambled enough!

If you're in a position where you have a choice - get a Mac.

My wife switched from PC to iMac last August, and I'm pretty sure that next year we'll get one for the studio as well. Seems like going from a Model T to a Porsche....

Bassomatic - This isn't a Mac vs PC thing really - Actually, I'm a Windows Developer by trade, so I'm not a PC hater by any means (although Vista has caused a LOT of upsets in my business). I was merely attempting to dispel the notion that a Mac-based system, running Logic Studio is somehow more expensive than a comparably equipped PC running Cubase 4. That's all... :)

Doug - Congratulations! I think you'll get a lot out of it in the studio!

Peace to Mr Gates, Mr Balmer and Mr Jobs and Goodwill to all on TGP...

You're the guy who brought up Apple in a thread seeking SX3 advice. Odd, as it runs beautifully on Macs.

I stand corrected - although forums are for the exchange of opinions. That being said, I guess I wasn't fortunate enough to partake in the morass of Mac vs PC discussions, nor was I aware of them.

Checked out your music by the way - great stuff! :)
