About pitch less than a half tone

Permanent link to this post Posted by PaoloS » Mon Jun 05, 2017 7:09 am

Hi folks,
I'm using Audacity 2.1.2 both on Ubuntu Linux (17.04) and Windows 10.
Often I change tune of a music downloaded to make it easy for my student (I teach blues harp in a Music school).
Recently I need to tune a song less than an half tone, because I found the original song is in the right key, but low about 10-15 Hz.
So, I found the right tune after a lot of trials: is there a fast and better method to do this?
Thanks
PaoloS

Were you using the Preview button in the change pitch effect? I generally find that a bit quicker than "apply -> undo -> apply a bit different -> undo ->..."

Yes, sure, but I'm looking for a method to precisely find the real tune... Is there a method or the only way is to proceed for trials?

There's a plug-in here that is pretty good at finding the pitch of a single note: http://wiki.audacityteam.org/wiki/Nyqui ... tch_Detect
Installation instructions are here: http://wiki.audacityteam.org/wiki/Downl ... ns#install
