    Is anyone aware of any freeware programs that would allow me to take a cut from a CD and burn a pitch-corrected copy at a slower speed? I have a bunch of stuff I've been trying to learn by ear, but it's just too fast to get my arms around to start.

    The software is called slowblast. It works very well.

    WinAmp is my favorite one to use. It's free, it works very well, and it allows you to control Pitch, Tempo, and Speed. It's incredibly nice because it's on my playlist as it is, so I can play any song I want, and if I want to slow it down, I just open the plug-in.

    It's for WinAmp 2, it's called PaceMaker tempo controller (download it in effects/plugins)

    I bought SlowGold a couple of years ago. I've been very happy with it. Though it is a bit on the buggy side as far as the interface goes, it does its job very well.

    I couldn't imagine learning songs without it.

    I downloaded the trial version of "The Amazing Slow Downer." Goofy name, and I'm not sure how it compares to any other products, but it seems nice to me, and worth a look...
