Cannot change pitch shift method in Vegas Pro 14.0

I am using the 64-bit version of Vegas Pro 14 Build 270, and I am doing a video project where I want to pitch shift audio clips in a way that is quicker than using the audio event effects on every individual clip. I found in some tutorials that, by setting the "time shift / pitch shift" method to classic in the audio properties, then it is possible to change the pitch of a clip in the small text box or by using the plus and minus keys. I have tried to use this feature in the properties menu and with the hotkeys, but have not been able to do so successfully because when I use the dialogue box to change the method to classic, it just reverts itself, which is evident when I go back into the properties menu. Everything else in the audio properties menu functions perfectly.

In case this is hardware specific, I am using a Nvidia GTX 1060 (6GB) GPU, and an AMD Ryzen 5 2600 CPU with Windows 10.

Are you using CTRL and SHIFT and = and -?

From the help file

Editing from the timeline

Select an event.

Use the = and - keys on your keyboard (not the numeric keypad) to adjust pitch:




Raise pitch one semitone.


Raise pitch one cent.


Raise pitch one octave.


Reset pitch.


Lower pitch one semitone.


Lower pitch one cent.


Lower pitch one octave.


Reset pitch.

Well, that was a simple solution. I was using the number pad keys. Thanks!
