I never had any musical formation classes whatsoever, but I believe that
using a pitch stretch technique it would give you notes 'offscale'. for
instance, you have the C major scale; if you want the 3rd of C, it would be
exactly 4 semitones above (E) but the 3rd of D it would be 3 semitones above
(F) for the 3rds to be in scale...
I know guitar pedals have somehing called 'harmonizer' where you can define
in which scale you are playing, and it gives you the 3rd, 4th, whatsoever on
Hope that helped...
