We are proud to introduce SlowGold, an innovative new CD-ROM from World Wide Woodshed that slows down music! This program features studio-quality slowdown technology to let anyone alter the playback speed of music or other audio without hearing a change in pitch, making them ideal learning tools for all musicians. The simple interface allows users to select tracks and adjust the tempo from 5% to 200% of the original speed, so that they can slow down even the fastest riffs and learn to play any recorded solo, pick out chords and other parts, and absorb the phrasing and style of their favorite artists.Once they have learned to play along at a slow pace, they can increase the tempo - by as little as 1% at a time - and practice along until they can play the music at full speed, or even faster! Regardless of the playback speed, the program delivers incredible sonic clarity and fidelity. SlowGold includes advanced features such as real-time slowdown processing, pitch control, and 100% digital signal processing. In addition to processing analog signals, CD audio and .WAV files, SlowGold now accepts the popular MP3 audio file format.SlowGold will run on a 486/66 with 12 MB of memory, but the highest-quality slowdown algorithms (there are 4 different algorithms giving you choices about the speed/quality tradeoff) will be rather slow on such a slow computer. A Pentium 166 will operate at pretty comfortable speeds, and of course faster is better. For the advanced features in version 7.x (real-time processing and pitch shifting), a minimum 300 MHz Pentium processor is required. You must also have a CD drive and a sound card. SlowGold will run on any of the Windows Operating Systems, but for WinXP, Win2K and WinNT, you may need to install ASPI drivers for Digital Recording to work. ©2002, WINDOWS CD-ROM.
