    I don't understand what effect you mean. Do you have an example?

    Yeah, that is the good old "paulstretch" effect, which Timbre mentioned above.

    Audacity has this built in as an effect, but you can also get the paulstretch program on its own (it's a little outdated, but still works wonders) from here:

    Don't forget that most DAWs already have their own built in audio stretching: Ableton Live, Reaper and Reason all have their version of audio stretching and offer different algorithms.
    The algorithms sound different and are more appropriate for different types of material. But sometimes using the 'wrong' algorithm or over-stretching can (sometimes) introduce interesting glitches/artifacts.

    The in-DAW stretch does not go as far as paulstretch.
    So you may need to render the audio and them re-stretch again.

    I want to believe.
