How do you gradually slow down a track?

As far as I can tell, it should work the same way as gradually changing pitch. On Adobe Audition CS6 on a Mac, gradually changing pitch is as simple as using the Time and Pitch > "Time and Stretch (process)" under the Effects menu, then switching from the iZotope plugin to the Audition plugin, and adjusting the beginning pitch and final pitch over the selected audio. Why doesn't this work with the time? I'm trying to slow down a piece of audio gradually, but it doesn't seem to work.

    You could possibly try Waves Doppler or even

    And another FX plugin that does tapestop:

    Do you just want the speed to vary or the pitch as well? Try the "Cutting Power" preset to see if that does what you expect and then adjust from there.

    There are a few ways to slow a portion of a track down.  Use Effects > Time & Pitch > Stretch and PItch (process).  If you choose the Audition algorithm, you can perform a gliding stretch which will let you stretch from 100% (normal playback) up to 800% (8x slower) over time.

     

    If you're using Audition CC, the Pitch Bender effect will allow you to keyframe the slowdown on screen so you can draw the curve and duration you want directly on the waveform.

    Also, I question whether your WAV files are actually 64-bit, but the bit rate of an audio file is not the same as the bits of a CPU or OS.  All Audition's native effects work with 192kHz audio files and on audio files of any bit rate.

    What is really needed is a way of doing this in the Multitrack view using keyframes - feature request perhaps?
