    Phase problems after Processing SD2 file with TComp/EXP

    Hi!
    I was "mastering" a Horn band album a few hours ago and then I faced this problem..
    My client, the conductor, felt he conducted with a too low bpm.. yes, after almost 6 months of recording/editing/ production´s day 01....

    Ok, I could do the TC exp to every single track..OH My God...

    Examining the final SD2 44k/24 bit PT 5.1.1 TDM file (Mix system) which sounded ok before TComp/ exp... Phase was fine too.

    I processed the file with Digirack´s Tcomp/exp audiosuite plug-in and then, it started sounding quite funny in Mono.

    Phase read-out at PAZ becomes agressivelly anti-phase.
    So.. any ideas besides re-recording everything or TC/exp each individual track?

    Would you recommend me any other TC/EXP plug?
    I don´t think the junior mastering Waves are adding so much phase problems because everything sounded fine before the audiosuite processing.

    BTW.. I was increasing speed from (varies from 103 to 109) to +2.5%.
    Maybe are the random speed bumps/breaks that "damage " the phase?

    Thanks in advance
    Nice week
    :confused:

    The best time strech/compress algorithm i know of is in Timefactory from Prosoniq

    They might do the trick for you.

    There are some examples you can listen to as well.

    Yes it is an old Bony M tune :D

    In the world of timestretch/compres´i don't know any other alternatives worth mentioning.

    Timefactory is a standalone program!

    did you listen to the demos on their website?
