Pitch plugin was not found - Arch Linux

Bug Description

I was able to compile the plugin but I'm unable to load it due to the following error message.
My installation of gstreamer-1.x and the bad plugins (from Arch's official repos) does not include soundtouch however version 0.10 does have this included and the plugin was unable to detect it. Since I'm on a 64-bit version of Arch, I tested the multilib versions and they have the same effect.

Since there was no log mentioned, I'm unsure of where to look for in terms of logs.

Kernel version:
Linux ArchPC 4.8.4-1-ARCH (using linux-zen)

If you're using Rhythmbox 3.x (which I assume you will be if you're using a current version of Arch), only the Gstreamer 1.x architecture will work. You cannot use plugins from Gstreamer 0.10.x in Gstreamer 1.x.

If the gst-plugins-bad-1.0 package in Arch does not include the soundtouch plugin, then you will have to first obtain libsoundtouch (either from Arch packages or compile it if it isn't in the repo), then recompile gst-plugins-bad-1.0 and make sure that it detects libsoundtouch in your pkg-config directory.

Unfortunately this is not a bug that I can fix from my end because I am not responsible for what packages Arch Linux does or does not include in their package repository.
