A Brief History of Pitch Effects:
Pitch shifting came into being via the simple process of slowing down or speeding up the recording mechanism. At first, it was primarily used for cartoon voices starting in the 1930’s, but eventually found its way into popular music in the 1960’s and 1970’s, most notably with bands like the Beatle’s and Led Zeppelin. In recent years, the ability to affect pitch and time changes has been greatly improved, leading to many variations in the effects processing world.
