Create Ambient drones with Paul Stretch
I just wanted to post this blog as I’ve discovered a fantastic new free plugin called Paul Stretch that will stretch a sound by up to 10,000 times it’s original length! No that wasn’t a typo!
This can be an amazing tool to create evolving ambient sounds and unique drones and pads. Looking to take that tiny vocal part and stretch it out? It’s a piece of cake with this tool. You’ll be amazed what you can create by just randomly throwing a little soundbyte in the program!
Now just so you are aware, this is a stand alone program and doesn’t work from within Ableton or any other DAW program. You basically import the sound, stretch it and tweak it til you are happy with it, then export your new sound. From there you can bring it into your recording program. It appears there is a MAC and a PC version. Thus far I have only tried the PC version.
Here is a little info in the program:
