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.
Really cool program. Simple user interface but could not work better. The pitch stay the same at any speed. The fine tuning works well. It feels like it is done by people who really care. Plus it was offer for free to support musicians during the pandémic, I gadly gave 20$ for and it is well invested.
I was never a good guitarist. I have tried my best in learning scales but i just cant absorb the knowledge of scales or anything about scales. This product has helped me in playing guitar solo without ever need to know what scales are. And because of that, eventhough i am a bad guitar player, but this software turned me into a great player in just days as long as you have the urge to find guitar solos that you want by using the software. Thank you for developing such an awesome product.
Slow Gold works perfect for practicing guitar. Slowing down and looping songs are the tools I use most.
It's a wonderful software that is painless to use. If you are concerned about the pitch that needs to be changed this does the Job. It is so easy to use that anyone can become a master recording engineer so far changing the pitch is concerned. The best part is, when my computer hard disk broke I visited their site, and they let me buy a copy for zero dollar and provided a new key for the software. These guys are angels, not business people!
