What computer operating system is your Premiere Elements 13 running? Have you updated 13 to 13.1 yet using an opened projects Help Menu/Updates? If not, please consider doing that.
Assuming Windows 7, 8, or 8.1 64 bit, you will find the Pitch Shifter
Expert workspace only
After you drag the Pitch Shifter effect into your Timeline audio clip, you edit the effect by selecting/highlighting the audio clip, going to Applied Effects Tab/Applied Effects Palette, and Pitch Shifter Panel expanded.
Editing Pitch Shifter
You may be interested in a work that I did with Pitch Shifter with an earlier version of Premiere Elements.
Please review and consider. Any questions or need clarification, please ask.
Hi A.T. Romano,
Thank you very much for your reply ! Sorry for my english , I am a french speaker and I do my best !
I am running Mac OS X 10.9.5 and I tried to update Premiere Elements 13 but it tells me that's already updated ... And I have still only 15 audio effects but not the Pitch Shifter yet.
What can I do ?
Premiere Elements Mac version does not include Pitch Shifter audio effect.
Thank you for the reply with the very important information that your Premiere Elements 13/13.1 is running on a Mac computer.
Please see Adobe document on Premiere Elements Effects Reference and the Windows Only effects.
The Audio Effects
are Windows Only Audio Effects.
The Premiere Elements Mac version typically has less content than the Premiere Elements Windows.
I am strictly an Elements Windows user. But, you could explore using Time Stretch and its Speed% to distort you audio to sound like cartoon effects.
Premiere Elements 13/13.1 also has a Time Remapping feature for applying fast and slow motion effects, but I have found that it will accept and apply its effects to video but not audio.
Dear A.T. Romano,
Thank you so much for your answer !!!
I tried Time Stretch and it is a quite good alternative
I wish you all the best !
Thank you for the follow up. Great news Great job in obtaining your cartoon audio effect.
The irony of this is that often we are bothered by distorted sound when we go to apply fast or slow motion effects to our video audio clips using Time Stretch.
Selection of the Time Stretch "Maintain Audio Pitch" has limited usefulness.
This is one instance where the sound distortion was a good side effect.
