Re: How do you all do pitch shifting in performance?

Hi Michael,

great to read those Möbius discussions here. I have been a user very early on, but with my recent move away from looped stuff I haven't used it in quite a while...but discovered there's a lot of new releases, maybe I need to catch up.

Are you using the latest "major minor" release? I read that the pitch shifting has been improved performance-wise.

Back when I started (PentiumIV M, 2GHz), performance was very much an issue in the complex setup I did. I had settled with MadShifta (http://bram.smartelectronix.com/plugins.php?id=2, free/open source), which is rather non-hifi - you need to see if it works for you:
One example for its use (on trombone - hi Sylvain!):http://goo.gl/diXR8
There's a lot of its use on "Weird Specialist" and "MSSS" albums.

I'd love to hear how you all accomplish pitch shifting in live 
performance.  I've tried it with Mobius, but I get a lot of cutting.  
Maybe my Macbook Pro isn't fast enough? (2.4Ghz, 4MB, SDD)

At any rate, how do you all do it most easily?  Pedals?  is there a plugin 
for Mainstage that I can get to do pitch shifting?

It's great here in Santa Cruz, by the way, at the Live Looping Festival.  
If any of you are here, please introduce yourself to me.  I'm the guy with

of those are true.
