   support enabled).

   pitchplay  allows  playback  of audio tracks with cdda2wav with pitches
   specified in percentage with 100% being the original pitch,  50%  being
   one octave lower, 200% one octave higher.


   pitchplay 1 90  3 140  5 50
   will  play  track  1 with a pitch of 90%, track 3 with a pitch of 140%,
   and track 5 with a pitch of 50%.




   cdda2was  was  written  by  Joerg  Schilling  <js@cs.tu-berlin.de>  and

   This  manpage  describes  the  program  implementation  of pitchplay as
   shipped       by       the       cdrkit        distribution.        See
   http://alioth.debian.org/projects/debburn/ for details. It is a spinoff
   from the original program distributed by the cdrtools project. However,
   the  cdrtools  developers  are  not involved in the development of this
   spinoff and therefore shall not be made  responsible  for  any  problem
   caused  by it. Do not try to get support for this program by contacting
   the original authors.
