I have seen this discussed before in the archives, and the consensus seemed to be that it wasn’t a big problem. I am also having this problem when trying to adjust pitches. When I adjust the pitch of a selection of one track, I can see the portion of the track after the change moving so that it becomes out of synch with the other tracks. For example, correcting one word of a vocal performance that is out of tune. I.e., raising the pitch make that little selection shorter, and that defintely IS noticible.
The only thing I have been able to do is make the selection, go to “tempo change” just to see how long the duration of the selection is, then go to “pitch change” and make my change, then come back to “tempo change” and return the selection to it’s original length. This works, to some extent, but it is a very clunky method.
There must be another way??? Everything I read says Audacity doesn’t do this, but it does.
