    While it is for the purpose of writing out tabs, you might get more help in the MISC forum.

    you want to go here.
    they have gear, stuff galore AND free or demo software to boot.

    i am currently using a tuner program i downloaded from there and the FREE version of ProTools.
    they are the place to go for free software.

    This is a good quality add on for winamp and other mp3 players.. You can use it for free for a 30 days period.. Chek it out.

    Do a search for SlowGold. Works great, is cheap and does the trick.
     
  7. if you have winamp you can download a jobbie for it and slows down up to 70% for free,

    There's a plugin for Winamp called Pacemaker, you can find it on the Winamp website.

    get winamp, then get pacemaker. This program keeps the song in the same key, other programs don't.

    Another vote for Transcribe! - it's one of the reasons that I'm not pushing too hard to move from Win98 to Linux at home, even though I've largely switched over at work (although not yet having found drivers for my USB ADSL modem also play a large part in that decision).

    Not only will Transcribe! slow things down very flexibly, but it also has a range of other features - adding markers to the track and being able to loop between any two points is very useful to me.

    I wish somebody made a cheap little box that did looping, pitch shifting, and constant pitch tempo shifting. I hate to pay too much for what my computer will do for free or peanuts, but at the same time - I find computers and music don't mix well - not because I'm a luddite, but because I got this big ole monitor on a corner desk and guitars and corner desks /keyboards don't mix well, and monitors and single coil pickups don't get along. Stuff like that.

    hey, i just want to say thanks. i've only been playing bass for a few months, and this is only about my third time on the web site. like many beginners all i have is tabs, but every one knows they are almost never right. i didn't know there was programs out there to slow the music down, and i still have a hard time trying to get it down myself. i downloaded pacemaker and it seems pretty cool. it seems like it's going to help quite a bit. so, thanks for the tip. i'll talk to you guys later. peace
