BeatQuantizer is a single and multi track audio quantizing software for windows. It is designed to tighten the performance of drums and other recorded instruments with well-defined transients. State of the art time stretchers and clever XFade tools are provided to automatically mask the gaps and smooth the overlaps, caused by the quantizing process. As it’s a stand-alone program, it works with just about any DAW (Soundscape, Nuendo, SX, Sonar, PT LE, SAW, FL Studio etc). It can also do everything BeatCreator can do. Like: groovy beat mangling and time saving sample replacements. The PolyStretcher is a brand new developed time stretcher with a fantastic audio quality. It is also very fast, precise and keeps the groove perfectly. The PolyStretcher is included in BeatCreator 3 and BeatQuantizer. It will be available as an add on for other Zero-X products.
BeatQuantizer provides tools for quantizing both single and multi track recordings. Quantize settings dialog.
Before and after Quantizing you can, In “Manual Quantize” mode, manually quantize any slices simply by dragging its marker to the desired position or Ctrl+Click to snap to closest quantize position. I.e. both the slice marker and the actual slice will be moved.
If sync slices is checked, the slice and marker will be moved accordingly in all tracks. Overlap and gap are stored and supported by the Quantize Finalizer.
Quantize Finalizer (Edit Smooth)
The Quantizer moves the slices to positions defined by the click track or groove template. This (mostly) leads to bad sounding gaps and/or overlaps between the slices. The Finalizer solves this automatically!
State of the art time stretcher and powerful xfade tools make sure the gaps ared filled/masked and the overlaps smoothed perfectly.
The Master Track can be used as a pool for storing unique slice markers gathered from a selection of the tracks (kick and snare for instance).
BeatQuantizer provides tools for time streching both single and multiple tracks. For instance you can very easily time stretch all tracks/loops/samples to a common tempo.
The time stretchers in BeatQuantizer are excellent for stretching both mono (bass lines, vocals, saxophone and other single note playing instruments) and polyphonic ( music, drums and any instrument playing chords) samples/tracks.
