Social Distancing Pricing
To help musicians and anyone else entertain and educate themselves during this sad period, the World Wide Woodshed is making the esteemed music slowdown tool SlowGold available for whatever you feel good about paying. If you are suffering a major income loss due to COVID-19, please pay nothing.
Stay safe, sane, and as happy as you can manage.
SlowGold™ is a program for Windows PCs that allows you to radically slow down music and loop music without changing the pitch.
It makes it simple for you to slice the music up into easily-digestible pieces, so you can really hear what’s going on and play along.
A lot of times, the most amazing passages on an instrument are thrilling to listen to, but they go by so fast that you can’t really understand what is going on musically. You’d like to play the same thing, just to know you can, and then (if you’re an improviser) maybe to “generalize” the lick and adapt it to a variety of songs.
But first, you have to hear what’s being played at a speed that allows you to understand it.
Play individual phrases back at very slow speeds to hear exactly what is going on in the music, or play them at moderate speeds to practice along with the masters and really get all the details of the phrasing. It’s all in your power with SlowGold.
SlowGold lets you use every track in your digital music library as a course in how to make great music, which you take at your own speed. Amaze and amuse your friends with your interpretations of ultra-hip licks! Or just quietly improve your skills and musical understanding by learning from your favorite musicians, if that’s more your speed.
Supports .mp3, .flac, .aif, .aiff, .wav, .wave formats.
This program is amazing helpful for making elusive fast licks and bass parts easy to learn. Hats off to you World Wide Wood Shed!

This is an essential tool. I'm into Page/Zep and his TSRTS playing.. Finding tabs that nail his style are helpful, but difficult to find and often wrong. Missing a note, saying a slide instead of a bend, fret location of a run, etc. Slowing it down to catch subtleties of his playing while keeping the same pitch is the only way to get them. Struggled for over 40 years before this product.
SlowGold™ 8 Music Slowdown Program for Windows Computers
Great! Thank you. I'm using Slow Gold daily. You will, no doubt, have genuine musicians who value it as a professional tool. I'm a beginner who enjoys clarinet playing enormously but will never be any good. I didn't begin to learn until I was well into my 60s when my start point was total inability to read a note of music or play anything at all on any instrument at all and I'm now well into my 70s. Playing clarinet is a great joy and Slow Gold is really useful so that I can take things at my own pace (slow!) and also loop tricky sections to focus on them. Finding enormous pleasure in music-making is a real bonus during Covd restrictions. You will be deservedly proud of the service you provide to serious musicians; I hope you will be pleased that your service also benefits those of us at the opposite end of the musical spectrum.
