Its getting more and more popular with 432 hz tuning, specially with meditation music. Most are in 440hz. So the question is this, is it possible to do a plugin that can automaticly "auto tune" the songs that are played?

There is a little bit more about it:

The BASS plugin MB uses has access to the same Soundtouch library that the foobar plugin uses, so it would be possible. I will add something for v3.3

Can you give a brief summary of what this does and why one would use it?

Its mostly popular by meditation music. It says it is the ultimate tuning. Some says it can heal you and others says its cause its what the universe is made by, and the rest says its b*shit. I do suffer off headace and have problems listening to music for a long time, but didn't get that at a friends place, I thought it was the speakers or something but when I asked she told me she used a 432 Hz player on her phone. I did try it and I can listen to more music without having headace. Wierd, but it worked for me.

@Steven:  is this addition still on the drawing board for 3.3x?  Just curious!

While Steven hasn't said it, I would think at this point he's only doing bug-fixes for 3.3. I know that he is working on 3.4, so if this is going to be added, it would probably be in the 3.4 series.
Download the latest MusicBee v3.3 patch from here.
Unzip into your MusicBee directory and overwrite existing files.

this is done for v3.4, with sample rate and pitch adjustments now supported

Thanks for the info Steven, this will be interesting to "play" with.  I'm always open to a testable new idea (i.e. swedishme's remarks), and then drawing my own conclusions.

For anyone's interest, that tuning pitch (432hz) is done by doing pitch adjust to -0.32 (exact -0.3176) in semitones, -31.766 in cents.  Alternately, the same effect is claimed by doing a  playback rate (NOT tempo) adjust of -1.82%  (exact is -1.818%), or .98182 X, depending on what scale is provided.  I tried the pitch method in another player but it resulted in noticeable audio "artifacts" so the testing ended, ahem, immediately;  that player however did not use the BASS libraries.
