Ed R. asked:

I have a karaoke song and want to lower the pitch. In other words change the key to a half step lower. I know I use the PITCH in audio, but how do I know what numbers are a half step lower?

In the Effects Browser, search for the Audio > Pitch effect, then add it to your clip.

In the Inspector, adjust the numerical slider. Every whole number represents 1/2 step in musical pitch.
