Audio examples

All of these examples are from Rubber Band v1.5.0 with the default parameters.

As with all software of this kind, actual results will depend heavily on the audio being processed. You can also significantly adjust the results using Rubber Band's small number of editable parameters. Try it yourself rather than trusting the examples.
