Delicious Audio Software and Plug-ins
Realtime and Offline Rendering for the Best Quality.
BeatCleaver allows you to change the tempo of a song, recording, or drum beat without changing the pitch using a cutting-edge time-stretching engine. With an engine tuned for working with beats as well as music, BeatCleaver offers high quality time-stretching without sounding robotic.
Find the BPM of a song or clip in seconds.
BeatCleaver automatically determines the tempo (BPM) of any audio loaded into it with impressive accuracy, so you can dive right into adjusting the tempo of a sample.
Just pick a new tempo, preview it, and save!
To demonstrate the new time stretching capabilities of BeatCleaver, we first went to dig for samples on CCMixter, a popular Creative Commons sampling site. After discovering some funky guitar samples, we threw them into BeatCleaver to time-stretch, repitch, and chop them.
Give a quick listen to the original samples, followed by a time-stretched and repitched version of each:
Then, we dragged the chopped up samples from BeatCleaver into our favorite sampler and sequencer, and wrote a short instrumental hip hop track using the slices:
We'd like to give a special thanks to the talented artists who've generously licensed their samples under the Creative Commons BY license over on CCMixter. We'd also like to thank MPC-Samples.com for the beat!
