Ok, I know about the Tascam device that's on the market to help you learn riffs and guitar lines, and I know the Windows Media 10 trick, but is there any other computer software out there that slows down music so you can figure out licks?

there's a program called "transcribe!"

There's a trial version on the internet. And when your trial is over, all you gotta do is turn back your computer clock when you use it.

Get a Line6 GuitarPort, or TonePort. You'll love it! Razz I use one in my 'remote studio' (bedroom) with a laptop, just love the little bugger. You can slow tracks down, play along and it sounds pretty darn good with some tweaking. Oh and headphones, wives love headphones! Laughing

Transcribe! is great program, but setting back time is a hassel. I use The Amazing Slower Downer, but it only plays the first minute of a song, so I use an mp3 editor (Acoustica Mixcraft) to cut out portions of songs I'm learning. It's going to take a little extra effort any way you do it without paying.

A couple months ago I downloaded a program called Audacity. It's a free (yeah, FREE!) multitracking program that has a function where you can slow down a recording but maintain the same pitch.

I've had great success with it for that purpose, but I was disappointed in it's multitracking capabilities. But if all you want is to be able to slow stuff down it should work fine.

Hi

TRANSCRIBE is the best program out there.
For those of you who use this program, check out this link:

Admin: Link Removed (That was was not okay!)

That should solve the problem with registration

We use a product called "Slow Gold" Slow down A CD without changing Pitch. We find it usefull when changing keys for the singer. You can burn a CD with a new key change and send everyone home with the key change to practice.
