While many popular media players allow you to speed up or slow down your favorite songs, they usually also distort the audio pitch in the process. Similarly, altering the pitch is normally only possible if also modifying the playback speed.

Pulse Master is an interesting application that enables you to control the pitch and tempo separately, and it can be useful in a number of situations. It comes with a built-in equalizer, as well as several other helpful tools.

The application supports a decent range of audio formats, including MP3, WAV, OGG, FLAC, WMA and M4A. You can load multiple files at once, but drag and drop actions are not supported.

Pulse Master comes with a standard set of playback tools, as well as an equalizer that can be hidden easily at any time. You can also create presets and then load them with a couple of mouse clicks.

The program’s most notable feature is the fact that it allows you to increase or decrease the tempo of a song without distorting it, as well as change its pitch without speeding it up or slowing it down.

These parameters can be controlled easily from the main program window, and several convenient keyboard shortcuts are available to make things even simpler.

Pulse Master enables you to record the altered tracks, as well as convert audio files to MP3. Advanced users should be pleased to learn that numerous encoding parameters can be customized.

The built-in BMP and transpose calculators can help you determine the right tempo and perform transpositions easily, while the Vocal Remover makes it possible to eliminate the singer’s voice from a certain track.

Overall, Pulse Master is a powerful software utility designed to help you modify a song’s pitch and tempo independently, as well as perform various other alterations. It offers a decent user manual, but the outdated interface rather disappointing.
