    Tantalizing hint

    This is from a message Dean sent to the Checkins list last week:

    ....
    Fixed pitch control to preserve pitch settings across songs and adjust during a song.
    ....

    Does "pitch" mean what I think it does? That is, is it something that can be
    adjusted somehow? If so, a plugin taking advantage of this would be a great
    help to musicians playing along with recordings that aren't in concert pitch
    (increasingly rare nowadays, but instruments on some older pop stuff were
    apparently tuned by ear).

    If that works, and if the tempo could be adjusted as well (without affecting
    pitch), then the Squeezebox would be a great learning tool, i.e. to slow down
    a song to learn a part, then increase the tempo as proficiency improves.

    Possible? -:- dbls

    if you have a squeezebox, try out your player settings and you can find out for
    yourself what pitch means

    Donald - it's not really pitch, it's overall playback speed. You can
    access it under the settings menu on the squeezebox.

    Proper adjustments for tempo/pitch are possible but would require DSP
    work on the server. This would be a great project if somebody wants to
    have a go at it, though it's not something on our roadmap here.
