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.
SlowGold™ 8 Music Slowdown Program for Windows Computers
Years ago I recorded many guitar lessons on tapes. I am now looking through the digitized vesions to transcribe some of the music. The trouble with recording on a battery operated cassette recorder is that as the battery power ran down the tape slowed down making the recorded music sound faster (higher pitch). With the adjustable pitch and stretch controls I can adjust the music back to the original pitch. SlowGold is simply amazing and makes the job of transcribing a real pleasure.
Simple to use. Excellent sound quality at slow speeds, much better than Foobar and VCL.
Great product, quick and courteous technical assistance. All perfect.
I am able to slow down licks that were initially too fast to pick up but now I am able to isolate those parts and learn them really quickly.
I have already been recommending this program to several friends.
