Is there a free Winamp plugin that can change the pitch of the music (in real time, so no Audacity or stuff like that) by a number of semitones? The ones I've found are either not free or too old.

Alternatively, what others music players support this feature natively or as a plugin?

PaceMaker can change pitch or tempo in real time. When you change the values, it takes about a second to take effect due to Winamp's internal buffer. You can decrease the buffer size (Preferences, Plug-ins, Output) to make the changes take effect faster if you want.

Thank you, this is exactly what I was looking for. – Javier May 2 '10 at 13:09

Aimp can natively change the pitch - but it's a simple slider so you cannot control it in detail.

For better control you can try Audacity
