Confirm that Flex Pitch "Fine Pitch" doesn't respond to global tuning (always uses equal tempered A440?)

Sun Dec 27, 2020 8:54 pm

I have a recording where the whole band is about A436 on average (16 cents flat off of A440). So, I go into the Project Settings -> Tuning and set the tune to A436 Equal Tempered. I believe I recall from past experience that this setting affects the pitch correction plugin, as well as the tuning of software instruments.

To my surprise, in the Flex Pitch display, the "Fine Tune" Parameter doesn't seem to be affected by this setting. It says the same number of cents regardless of the project settings. Does Flex Pitch always work off of equal tempered A440? Or is there a way to get Flex Pitch to use project tuning?

Can anyone confirm my finding, and perhaps suggest a work-around?

Hmmm? Something's wrong about your math. 440 - 16 = 424

Ha ha I made the same mistake, but Hz is not the same as Cents! Corrected it just before posting.

Haha! You're right, my bad. So yes indeed Flex Pitch doesn't seem to be affected by the project's tuning settings.
