Default Time stretching a Harp piece

Hi, I need to stretch a harp recording (stereo X/Y left and right mono tracks) to make the piece faster (it's not recorded on click and there's no definite tempo, just around 20 bpm faster than it is now)

...what algorithm would you recommend? I usually alt - drag the borders of my items to do the time stretching, is it correct?

Thanks for your help!

Yes, that's fine, just set your resample quality in the render dialogue when you render it to your final output file. Playback resampling quality and rendering resampling quality are separate settings.

Thanks Judder...could you elaborate a little on that?
I've never heard of it.

Thanks!

What I mean is that once you have finished stretching and mixing your project, then you render it to a stereo WAV or mp3 or whatever, the render dialogue that comes up will give you the option of setting the resampling quality. As time-stretching is resampling, you want to ramp this up to get the best results.
