asked Jan 16, 2016 in Studio One Feature Requests by sanchezco (410 points)

I really need this feature in S1 3, since today I have to use Bitwig or logic if I need this. Look at bitwig and make something similiar, its so easy and good for us EDM producers.

I too have wanted this for some time and thought it may have been implemented by now which makes me question if it ever will be.

I do wonder if the deal with Celemony (Melodyne) includes an 'in return for Melodyne integration and free software we will not implement audio track pitch automation' clause.

I hope not as the 2 compliment each other, because of the included Melodyne essential I purchased the Melodyne editor, would still like audio track pitch automation though.

Would love to see this realized in the form of a pitch shifting plugin (see Pro Tools' Pitch II for an example).

The main reason I'd love to see it as a plugin, rather than just another parameter for the track is that it'd open up other options too, such as putting this plugin on an FX channel for downtune/uptune fattening, without having to duplicate whole tracks.

Not just this, also REAL macro knob automations for the macro knobs and modzulators for them would be really nice!

Please please please we need pitch automation so badly guys! Something simple and easy to use like how we have volume and pan automation.

Even Ableton has this and most other daws
It's a huge downside for producing electronic music in Studio One!
Hope to see it soon!

Yes, please add this. Currently, the only workaround I have found to achieve this is by using some kind of Pitchshifter third party plugin and automating its pitch parameter. ideally this should be natively built into S1. Perhaps "Clip Pitch envelopes" like the existing "Clip Gain Envelopes"
