I mean time stretching without changing pitch and pitch shifting without changing speed.

I ask this because my friend recently purchased a turntable (Stanton ST150) and it has time stretch function.

http://www.stantondj.com/pdf/products/turn...t150_manual.pdf

The manual says

QUOTE
Note: This turntable has separate analog and digital circuits. If you are
looking for a purely analog signal, use the Phono output. For access to
the Key correction feature use the Line output or S/P DIF output.


QUOTE
Note: Key lock and Digital output
processing is only available when the LINE
output is used.


So from my common sense and English level (not my native language), the line out is in fact converted from digital. But my friend insisted on thinking that the processing is done in analog domain and said if EQ can be done in analog domain, why time stretching/ pitch shifting can't?

What is your opinion?

so, just for giggles, using Audition 1.0 's 'pitch bend>turntable slowing down' effect I was able to come up with (IMO) a quite reasonable facsimile of the original 'slowing down ending' effect of ELP's "Knife Edge", applied to Steve Wilson's new two-channel remix (which does not have the effect). Then I thought I'd try it on the multichannel remix, but immediately hit a wall, since Audition 1.0 doesn't offer that DSP in its multichannel mode. It *looks* like Audacity *may* have such an effect, but so far i can't tell for sure simply from online documentation....anyone know? Or know of a shareware/freeware editor that can do such variable pitch/time bending on multichannel (5.1) audio files?
