Default Would you trust a plug in for this?

I'm just finishing up a new song (electronica/reggae), and am getting ready to have it mixed. Problem is that it feels a bit slow. So my question is: is it possible to speed the track up by 2 -3 bpm after it's mixed?

Have any of you guys tried this? Do pro mastering guys ever get this request and what is the plug in of choice?

My 2 cents... I'd trust an analog machine for this before I'd trust a plug-in. There will probably be timing wierdness introduced somewhere over the course of the entire song with a plug. Let the mastering lab do it.

here's an idea...try the plug, if it sounds ok, go with it. I've had great success with Pitch n' Time on mixed tracks. A couple of bpm is very doable, the good thing is it doesn't hurt to try it.

It all depends if you want to maintain pitch or not.
If what you are after is straight varispeed, Serato Pitch n'time and even Wavemechanics Speed will do it without a hitch.
This will save you transfers.
Varispeed in digital is basically sample rate conversion. If done with proper algorithms it sounds ok

If you want to maintain pitch however things get more dangerous with less predictable results !

Speed it up in the mastering suite on a 1/2 inch analog machine. This is a very common procedure to tighten up a song or songs at the final stage. Consider it like adding spice to a soup.
Speeding it up digitally can "munch" the song, depending on the what the song contains sonically.
