tcStretch is allows time stretching, pitch shifting, and blurring.

Time stretch can be up to 1 million times slower. Pitch shift is plus or minus one octave. Blurring blends nearby spectral material to make the output less static.

Playback is sensitive to transients in the source material. Playback rate and blur amount are automatically adjusted according to the transient contour of the material being stretched. Playing transients at a faster rate than non-transients tends to make the output sound less obviously stretched.

Playing transients more slowly than non-transients emphasizes the stretchiness (good when playing in reverse mode with highly transient material). Adding blur brings in some subtle (or not so subtle) randomness which helps to keep the output less static.

As with other Tone Carver plugins, the Win64 version can't be found by reaper. Win32 works. I disagree with anyone who says that it's better than Paul Stretch, it's different and more limited. I experimented a bit with it, it seems to be nice.

Really nice freebie. Love the transient feature and wander feature. Just wish you could click anywhere on the waveform window and have the position jump to there. Or even a knob or slider that lets you move the position. But the random position is a nice feature (and that it can be automated).
