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.
Used Slow Gold for years. Version 8 is impressive.
Workflow ist faster than with DAWs. I use it a lot.
I bought SlowGold many years ago and found it a constant help for our little group, but after the group split up and many computer failures I totally lost the program. I was happy to find that SlowGold still exists and it is even better.
Slowgold works pretty good. You can't select the sections to loop using the cursor like with normal sound editors. Instead there's several steps. However, now that someone explained it to me, it's simple enough, just not intuitive.
