Online Radio chipmunk module

Chipmunking music is pitch shifting the music up plus slightly more rapid play It makes much music sound better chipmunking is doable with audacity thus a module to automatically chipmunk all of the stream of online radio would be nifty

You could click on different chipmunk versions

I find New music is easier to appreciate sped up n pitch shifted

Theres a paper on how uptempo music elevates peoples moods I think that might be why there is so much chipmunk music at youtube Its kind of a separate culture Chipmunk online radio would thus be nifty

       How would it sound if Alvin and the Chipmunks performed one of their "own" songs?

       The first sentence is chipmunking two or three sentences - so it seems baked...   

       Apart from literary critique, i like the idea. With normal radio it would not work without buffering, but streaming radio is coming in faster than it is replayed anyways, and podcasts would work too.   

       My mp3 player already has the ability to fast forward, although only in big steps (1.5 times normal is the slowest). I am not sure whether chipmunking involves anything more than replaying faster - this will make the frequencies higher all by itself, actually, Audacity can make music faster _without_ making it higher pitched, which is a much bigger task.

       Loonq: Chipmunking (I can't believe I've lived to see 'chipmunk' become a verb) involves more a pitch-shift than would arise purely from speeding it up. For old-fashioned tape-based purposes, the singers would sing at normal pitch but to a slower tempo, so that playing the tape at a faster speed would give an elevated pitch and a normal (or not much faster than normal) tempo.

       I figured that was how it worked.
