Changing pitch

Let's assume you played an Em riff with my 6 strings guitar.
But you want to pitch it down to Bm as if I ahd a 7 strings guitar.
Every DAW/plugin I tried sounded wrong, the lower the worse, the same with raising notes.The bigger the interval, the crapper it sounds.
How you guys would do it?

Many of the pitch changing plug-ins today are made for use with a single note input, and can do a reasonable job of changing the pitch. I'm not sure if you're talking about chordings or just a single note riff, but when you start talking about extreme pitch changes I can't think of any product right now that can make it sound believable. Melodyne is probably the best product on the market IMHO. If you have not tried it maybe you should. They have a plug in that is very CPU intensive or you can use the rewire version. Good luck.

Not chords, single notes and power chords(2 notes).
Everytime I tried to pitch down a power cord, it sounded weird, like out of phase or out of tune, plus some added a weird chorus/phaser effect.

Yeah that is probably some phasing going on and the sound itself gets effected from the pitch. Have you tried Celemony Melodyne??? It can handle multiple note inputs.

I'll try it tonight, I'll be working at a studio that has it.
If it works better than all others, I'll get it.
