CatStretch by Max for Cats
Explore new sonic worlds.
CatStretch is a 6-voice polyphonic time-stretching sample playback instrument. It lets you 'freeze' a sonic character at a specified position and play it back chromatically with MIDI notes.
Stretch any sound to infinity.
CatStretch is specially tailored for extreme sonic manipulations in the spectral and time domain. You can adjust the position of a sample with the 'Scrub' dial. It uses a phase vocoder to achieve time stretching up to total time freeze.
Sculpt your samples in new and unheard ways.
2 assignable Matrix LFO's, 3 Envelopes, Effects and a Multimode filter. These features will help you to further shape and design exciting new soundscapes.
