Question: Which slowdowner software do you suggest, as being the

easiest to use? I have been thinking about purchasing this but have no

experience with what is currently available. Any ideas/suggestions on

this would be appreciated. Thank you!

Hi,
I am using BestPractice: http://www.xs4all.nl/~mp2004/bp/
Main reason is that you can get it for free. I have tested some of the more expensive ones but no one did convince me for a change.
Alternatives: Amazing Slowdowner and Transcribe!

Cheers,

brotherwind

I'm using the Amaing SlowDowner, but that's because I purchased it before I found out about the free ones.

It's great, but I'm sure the free ones would do what I need it for.

I use Transcribe. I think the shareware fee is something like $15. I'm quite pleased with it.

I use Amazing Slow Downer for MP3 and WAV files. It's excellent.

For midi files, I use van Basko Karaoke Player. Also excellent.

Hope this helps.

Pacemaker Plug-in with Winamp player. Lets you also change the key so that you can play along with Dervish, Matt Molloy, or any other E-flatty using your favorite D-whistle!

Oh, and Winamp is free. Clear of nasties, too, to the best of my knowledge.

Audacity. Works for me. Free, too.

Current versions of Windows Media Player (free) allow you to slow down music by as much as 1/2.

I use the paid-for version of Amazing Slow Downer.

Great product. Simple, flexible, reliable, reasonably priced. That's all I ask for.

Sorry - couldn't resist. My slowdowner software of choice comes in various shades of brown, is usually packaged in glass and is mainly manufactured in the Scottish Highlands. (!)
