- Our friends at Audiodeluxe have an exclusive deal offering 30% off reTune from zplane. Retune takes an interesting approach to tuning in that as well as being a plug-in capable of typical pitch correction and pitch quantise duties, it offers a retuning matrix, allowing pitch based experiments through mapping incoming pitches to different pitches on the output side.
