If you have been using MIDI for some time in Logic, you probably know you can transpose with Option Up/Down Arrows to change the pitch in semi tones or half steps, and Option Shift Up/Down arrows to change the pitch an octave at a time. But what you may not know is that this works on audio as well. However, that’s only half the story. Whenever you transpose audio, Logic turns on FlexPitch/FlexTime. So what you will want to do for best results is set the algorithm to FlexPitch, instead of one of the Flextime options. The tutorial shows you a quick way to do this so that you don’t have to keep going in and out of the inspector.
So whether you want to try a song out in a different key, or even pitch correct some vocals, you now know how you can get the best results when transposing or changing the pitch of Audio.
