Hi Ron,

I'm sorry to say I totally lack any hands-on experience with these. I 
sometimes hear of this or that software which makes use of this technology, 
I seem to remember being told about some plugin for Cubase VST something 
like 5 years ago already for instance, supposedly it did audio quantize 
automagically. Also something like a couple of years ago someone told me 
about another tool for Windows which has its own frontend. With it, you 
would use samples to actually compose melodies and the software would adjust 
notes. All things I've never tried myself. As for Linux, I'm absolutely 
clueless in all respects. However, I can well remember that, a bit to my 
embarrassment, our engineer once used a hardware version of a tuner in a 
trumpet take (that was me playing, oh well!). It was one of these module 
shaped affects that you use as send-return. The results were just amazing. I 
believe they are used all the time in studios as I've always seen them 
around since then.

>High quality audio pitch, time stretch and
quantization would all be very useful in a DAW like
Ardour. I work on enough projects that require
extensive editing or rebuilding that command line
example applications for a library would be useful.

I'm sorry I can't help but I definitely agree, the results are potentially 
so much higher if you can make good use of this sort of things.

>Alex, are you the person who announced their intention
to develop these types of libraries on the Linux
Consortium mailing list?

I wish I was! :-(
