Discord4 is the latest version of our most popular and long-lived product, our Discord stereo pitch shifter.

The pitch-shifter consists of three separate algorithms: a “vintage” mode (the original Discord algorithm, modeled on the Eventide H910 and H949), a “clean” mode for more mh ` ` M 8odern shift1 r d H Q ^ xing sounds, and a “granular” mode for experimental effects.
