I've tried Izotope RX 8 Time & Pitch (Radius setting) which sounded terrible. I also tried a demo of Elastique Pitch V2 which also sounded terrible. When I say terrible I mean robotic and totally unusable.

I finally tried X-Form (which I never liked in the past) out of desperation and it sounded surprisingly good on both 5.1 dialog stem and music stem; monophonic and polyphonic settings respectively.

I have yet to try Pitch n Time Pro as I can't find a demo on their site...am I missing it?

Can anyone steer me in the right direction here as to the best pitch shift plugin for audio post (specifically pitch shifting 5.1 mix stems as described above).

Thanks for your help.

Time factory 2. It really is the one with the lowest artifact rate.

I just tried Elastique AAX and it sounded very good. I didn't see this product earlier and only tried Elastique Pitch V2. Thanks for the heads up! So far this is the winner of the ones I've tried.

I see a lot of good reviews for this plugin but I don't like that it's not integrated into protools as an AAX plugin. Does it really sound that much better than Elastique AAX to make it worth the hassle? I guess that's a subjective question on many levels but curious what your thoughts are before I pull the trigger ona $500 CAD plugin :)

I own all of them, Waves Soundshifter never gets mentioned, but it's still my favorite, and it integrates into ProTools' TC/E preferences just fine.

I feel that usually you get what you pay for. This plugin is only $30. How good can it be ?:) Also, I don’t see any mention of it supporting multichannel formats which is critical in an audio post environment.

Indeed, it has always won my shootouts provided I upsample to 96k.

Soundshifter does not support multichannel audio and therefore is not a contender.

I've pitch-shifted several entire recording sessions with it. Sync mode is as accurate as you would want! The others can have fewer artifacts without being as precise.

They have a demo. It would be well worth checking out.
