I have lots of spoken word and interview material to scrub through while compiling an initial "select reel" for later editing.
If speech pitch would remain more normal at 2x FF, that would make it easier. The built-in CS5 "clip->speed/duration->maintain audio pitch" doesn't work that well, plus requires re-rendering.
I know there are various algorithms for this -- my iPhone does a pretty good job of maintaining speech pitch when a Podcast is played at 2x.
Is there any plug-in for CS5 that (a) Does a better job, and (b) Doesn't require re-rendering or (c) At least re-renders faster using a multi-threaded algorithm?
I'm not aware of any that do this. Interview footage is generally viewed in real time.
