  • Looking for a software to slow down audio files, without changing the pitch...

    You guys probably get this question a lot (I dunno; the search function ain't working with my browser at the moment oke, but I'm looking for a software that can slow down/change the tempo of audio files without altering the pitch. Freebies are welcome (obviously! ), otherwise I'm on a limited budget. So shoot away your recommendations.

    Thanks (in advance)!

              Just remember that slowing things down to 1/2 speed will drop the pitch exactly one octave. I used that technique to learn Vincent Crane's run on The Crazy World of Arthur Brown's Fire. Slowed down enough, it's possible to hear a mistake. Still a great keyboard piece. (The only top 10 hit in the 60s with no guitar.)

                  Amazing Slow Downer.

                  Honesty, I hate paying for software, but it's like night and day with ASD vs all the freeware programs that do the same thing. You can take a song down to 20% of normal speed, though, that low it does start to break up a bit, but it's still far more clear than most other programs at about 50%, it's really pretty amazing, and add to the fact it's got a built in eq and vocal remover.

                  Basically you're paying for a clean sound, as any freeware program of this type has the same functions, but their sound quality drops like a rock as you lower the speed, where as ASD is just about as clean as you can get.

                    Two options for you.

                    Audio editor, you should learn the knack.

                    Special audio slow downer, it is easy but comes with a price tag.

                    You can compare the two ways, here are some information.

                      Mixcraft is really great. It really is powerful-- a feature-packed DAW application.

                      The secret of man's creative power is imagination.

                        Just a suggestion - Free software called WAVLink can slow music down without changing the pitch, and also has a bunch of other signal processing functions. Available at http://download.cnet.com or at my own website http://www.linkmode.com

                        I just finished this new version of WAVLink and released it a few days ago. I haven't compared the quality to other software, but it's the best I could do. It has helped me to learn a few songs.

                          I used to play Deep Purple LPs at 16 rpm which is close enough to half of 33 1/3 rpm to allow me to figure out what Ritchie Blackmore was doing.
