speed up, slow down audio?

is there an audio equivalent of the velocity function in Vegas? i.e., can I speed up and slow down an audio track based on the shape of an envelope that I can place on the audio track? similar to the way I can with a video track? if not, what's the best solution to accomplish this? i have noticed that i imitate this sound with scrubbing functions, but i actually want to incorporate this into a project.

Right click on the audio event on the timeline.

Select Properties

The dialog box will have an Audio Event tab.

Select Method: elastique

Time Stretch / Pitch Shift parameters can be entered to suit you fancy.

Using two instances of Vegas, you can have one record and the other play and play with the audio playback speed and record it that way, but there's no envelope control in Vegas for this. :(

For minor adjustments, I would use Split and Ctrl/Drag to change an Event's speed up or down. Vegas makes this very easy.

I have three video choral tracks that were performed with a CD that was run at a slightly different speed with each track. I want to use multicamera editing combining the three tracks so I need the audio including the video matching at the same speed. The tracks each consist of separate choral songs separated by variable times of announcement, so I want to make the adjustments on each track before splitting the tracks into each song. I can do that by CTRL stretch, but when I go to multitrack I know a lot of the fx previously done on each track disappears. Is that still true for with the stretch with 12.1, and even so will I be to edit with stretches in multitrack?

Really? I've never seen this. Ctrl-stretch never interferes with any other editing i've done.

When going to multicamera fx items such as brightness, cropping, etc. on individual video tracks disappear. This is listed as a caution when setting up multicamera, and I was concerned it also included disappearing individual Ctrl-stretches too.
It would be nice if fx corrections to individual tracks or segments of tracks could be kept when doing multicamera. The Ctrl-stretch is not affected as you indicated, but my crop changes were lost.
