    Is anyone familar with a reasonably priced program to slow down music for training? I play a trumpet and I need something to slow down a cd or You Tube.

    Look out for dancing school supplies. They have CD players that can slow down the speed of a CD without loss of pitch.

    Thanks for the information on "The Amazing Slow Downer", I had used their program previously on a PC and also liked it but I wasn't able to find anything for a Mac. I'll try again. Appreciate the tip.

    There's a free program called "Audacity" available here that I have used a couple times in the past to slow down some songs. Works well once you get the hang of it.

    Seventh String Software - the home of Transcribe!

    I have used many programs for slowing down transcribed solos and this one is by far the best. It is pricey at about $30, but it is more than worth it and it is designed for the sole purpose of transcription. I absolutely love it.

    Thirty dollars "pricey"? LOL.

    Maybe you'd like to go back to playing an LP at half speed, down an octave and playing drop-the-needle to repeatedly find that one isolated passage you're wanting to play.
    - - (or having the pitch of the recording "in the cracks".) Aye, yai, yai!

    I've used "The Amazing Slow Downer", "Audacity", as well - depending on what your end goals are - "Band in a Box" and "Sibelius". Different costs and usages. I have used Band in a Box extensively, BTW.

    Thanks...Kenny W. Not really too pricey when compared to Song Surgeon at $75. Song Surgeon pretty much does everything you would want but they are always up grading and of course, charge for it.
