Please fix the "Change Clip Speed" option also changing pitch. It's not that hard. (Camtasia 9)

Mac has a way to independently change pitch AND clip-speed. This forces anything faster or slower to become a different tune. There's a thread where somebody has the same problem SIX YEARS AGO and you solve it for Mac. Why is this still a thing? I want to make the clip longer, not turn everybody into Darth Vader. If I want to make a funny reference quickly, I don't want the sped up clip to stab my viewers' ears with chipmunk noises.

I honestly do not care about the whole "well the audio quality gets worse because the machine has to "fill in the blanks" and it sounds like garbage" I KNOW HOW THAT WORKS.

Say there's a glitch in a Gaming video. It creates an absurd moment which is so out of the ordinary it incites a laugh. To highlight this, I might slow the clip down (as it may have been less than a second), and zoom in on that area. The bizarre way the audio distorts, combined with the full zoomed in view and natural humor can make a viewer laugh out loud.

While lowering the pitch can also be funny, many time it is unnecessary and is pretty much just overkill.

I'm also making a video where all the national anthems to the tune of "God bless the Queen" are overlayed on top of "Sweet Land of Liberty". I don't want it to sound like a hot mess.

I'll wait for the independent pitch changing to be ported over from Mac.

But this stupid "Changing speed changes the Pitch" has got to go.
