Kent Williams releases PaulStretch for Mac
Paul Nasca recently released version 2.0 of Paul’s Extreme Sound Stretch, an extreme time-stretching tool.
Since Paul only released binaries for Windows, Kent Williams took the source code and made a working version for Mac.
Yesterday I couldn’t spell OS X Developer and now, I are one!
With some help from my friends on the CMake mailing list I finally got a running standalone OS X application built out of the Paul Stretch source. As I wrote yesterday, it’s free, it’s easy, and it makes hours of freaky soundscapes out of any audio file.
Except for mp3 files. If you try and load an MP3 file it locks up. Oh, and it wants WAV or OGG files — as far as I know it can’t load AIF files. But it’s free, right?
