Best time stretching for full songs?

Hi all!

Back in the day i used Prosoniq Timefactory but i don't seem able to install it on my Windows 7 machine.

Can anyone tell me what is a great (even the best) program (for Windoze) for time stretching? I have Samplitude, but that time stretch doesn't seem to but up to the same standard as Prosoniq Timefactory, which is strange considering PTF is rather old software!

Many thanks! ........... IR.

I dunno about standalone programs but I am pretty impressed with Reason's time stretching...

Paulstretch, it can Justin Bieber sound like an ambient masterpiece. But I'm sure you mean smaller time stretch. Ableton Live has a pretty good time stretching algorithm. The later versions of Reason, 6-7, have great time stretch as well.

If you have Pro Tools, Rane's Pitch 'n Time Pro is IMHO miles ahead of anything else. And I mean, way ahead of anyone else.

Cons:
Expensive
Pro Tools only

Time stretching needs to be done offline for high quality - the better the algorithm, the longer it takes. Last time I downloaded Reaper it came with some extremely HQ time stretching algo's that took extremely long times to render, but the results were stunning. Most DAWs have fast and HQ pitchshifting or time stretching, but they may not be this kind of slow-but-no-compromise quality.

I'd recommend Paulstretch, it's an amazingly impressive algorithm. Yes, you can stretch things to thousands of percent as described, but it's equally effective for more practical adjustments.

Strangely i have not come across anything as good as TimeFactory. That is really old, but it still did good job. I have tried most available on Mac. Pitch'n'time LE in Logic is ok, but not great.
