In this article we want to describe two of the best software to change the pitch of a video karaoke song on PC Windows and Mac OS system. The software are VIDEO MIX and KANTO KARAOKE. Please read the two solutions below.
#1. Change the Key of Video Song with Video Mix
Video Mix is a small but powerful software to edit, join and cut video file. One of the best features of this software is the PITCH change. Here are the simple steps to follow to change the key of a video song and save it with the new pitch value.
Step 1. Download Video Mix on your PC Windows
Step 2. Add the video on the program
Click on “Add Video Files” button to load your video file (avi, mp4, mov, mkv, mpg).
You will see a video image preview on the left and an audio waveform on the right. Below the waveform you can find some parameters like fade-in / fade-out, crossfade, volume, tempo and KEY (pitch).
Step 3. Change the Key (pitch)
To change key/pitch (from -12 to +12 semitons) you just need to move its cursor (as you can see from the image below)
Before save the new video you can preview it clicking on the thumbnail on the left (it will open a new window for preview).
Step 4. Choose the output video
Go on the Options menu and set the output directory, the output resolution, the output format (mp4 is the default) and the framerate.
Step 5. Export the video with the new PITCH
Finally back to the main window and click on the bottom right button “Export and Save Video” to export the output video. It will take some time to create the final video with the new pitch/key value.
