Pitch cue

Pitch cueing is the process a DJ does to seamlessly beat lock two different tracks. It is similar to the process of changing sample rate in the digital domain or time (rotation speed) in the analog domain.

A direct implementation of rotation speed modulation in the digital domain is possible using simple array resampling and anti-aliasing.

A different implementation may yield a more intuitive interface.
