This manpage describes the program implementation of pitchplay as shipped by the cdrkit distribution. See http://alioth.debian.org/projects/debburn/ for details. It is a spinoff from the original program distributed by the cdrtools project. However, the cdrtools developers are not involved in the development of this spinoff and therefore shall not be made responsible for any problem caused by it. Do not try to get support for this program by contacting the original authors.
