>I've had this coded up before, the problem is that if you want to "pitch shift"
each sample individually it really does become pretty heavy on the CPU. Unless
your not *dynamically* changing the value of the pitch shift, in which case it
can be rendered to a buffer & just played back.I would share the source if it was
in better condition, most of it is hacks on hacks for extra random features...
but I can zip it & ship it to somebody if they'd care to take a look. A JACK
client wrapper would need to be coded up, its only the "sampler / pitch shifter"
now. > Best free library from timestretch I know of is the RubberBand one.There
is also SoundTouch, its LGPL even more relaxed than the GPL of RubberBand. Its
what I used for the project mentioned above.Cheers, -Harry

Hydrogen 0.9.5 does all of this .. It uses the rubberband library and has a
fairly simple interface.. you don't have to use it's internal sequencer.. but
it's pretty damned good for writing loops..
