Automating the Speed of a Sound Clip?

I watched a video explaining granular synthesis last night, and it struck me that it sounded extremely similar to Caustic's waveform editor. That begs the question, is there a way to modulate the speed of a sound clip in a sequence?

I've heard off and on of a Granular Synth being used/developed, but I'm out of the loop. Is there a way to accomplish this right now?

Thanks.

Load the attached caustic

Load the attached caustic file. Go to the first PCMSynth and take note of where the sample Start button is (9 buttons bottom left in the middle). Press "Play" to start the song playing. As soon as it starts, press and hold the sample Start button on the first PCMsynth which will invoke the sample editor. You can physically see the playback change direction and speed. To accomplish this the PCMsynth should be in mono mode (1 voice) and you can use "Slide" to control the speed of sample playback to some degree.

Whether mono or polyphonic, changing the note value will slow or speed up a sample. In mono mode you have much more control of the speed and the ability to allow changes to occur over a determined time frame as opposed to sudden, abrupt transitions.

Note that changing the speed of sample playback will also alter the pitch.

@SToons Music thanks for your

@SToons Music thanks for your reply; however, I meant shaping the sample independently of the pitch (however, I frequently use the functionality you're referring to). I'm trying to achieve the same effect as what I saw in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ftDLRYnRYZQ&t=123s

Not possible in Caustic.

Not possible in Caustic. Check out "Granular"by Unity or "Grainstorm" if you're looking for granular synthesis on an Android OS. You'll have to pay for them to get wav export functionality. You can then import that into Caustic
