I would really like Android to have sped up audio playback with pitch correction. There is an open issue for this on the Android bug tracking database. If people would be so kind as to "star" the issue to bring it to Google's attention, I would greatly appreciate it. The link to the issue is here: Issue 1961 - android - MediaPlayer Adjustable SampleRate/Playback Speed support. - Project Hosting on Google Code If people would consider logging into their Google account and clicking on the star to raise this in the issue rank, I would greatly appreciate it.
