I don't care for the pitch control.  Perhaps they could make it so that you cycle between volume, speed, tone, and pitch.  I can see where pitch control might be useful but I too prefer the tone control, especially when listening to tape conversions.

There has been some talk that Humanware might consider giving stream users the option of having this new algorithm used or the traditional tone algorithm which they've used in the past.  We shall see if this option is offered in the future with another update.

Humanware has said they have found that some people, with certain hearing issues, actually can hear the sound better with the new pitch control.  I'm not fond of it, partly because some low quality podcasts or older nls tape conversions actually sound better if you can actually increase the highs and reduce the lows, which is what happens to the traditional stream tone control.  But we shall see what happens with Humanware on this.
