Recording app w/ monitorable real-time pitch transposition

by OlyDLG / April 10, 2012 4:36 PM PDT

Hi! I'm looking for an audio recording app that will apply pitch transposition in real time, and allow one to hear the effect being applied. I have Audacity, which has pitch transposition, but effects can't be applied in real time; and I have Sony Vegas Movie Studio, which can apply effects while recording, but it doesn't appear to have pitch transposition "out of the box," and even if I were to find this as a third-party plug-in, one can't hear applied effects until playback, i.e., while recording, all one hears is the unaffected input. Anyone know of an app (PC or Mac, hell, even Linux would be workable for me) or perhaps a (set of) plug-in(s) that can do what I want? Thanks!

PS: I also have, but haven't used/checked, the version of Cubase included w/ Zoom portable digital recorders--does this have what I'm after? Thanks again!

Not possible. Why?

Because as we need to process it, even it this took a split second it would be non-realtime.

Every on the fly changer I've used has some lag. So far.

OK, a "split second" would be OK, if there is an app that'll do that (I need it for my son, who has sensory integration issues, who finds the high pitch of his new teacher's voice irritating).
