A Quick Note on Why I'm Telling You About this.
I could make money promoting music “Slow Downer” programs for guitarists because they are very useful. But I’d like to think I’m a nice guy & I’d rather show you a free alternative.
In 2000’ I bought one of those programs called Slow Gold before you could get them free & it was worth every penny of the $50 at the time. Thankfully, nobody needs to spend money on them now.
How to Slow Songs Down & Where to Get The Free Software.
The program I use to slow songs down with now is a free program called Audacity. It’s also a free digital multi track recording program you can use to record your compositions with. So, it’s a great multipurpose tool.
First, go to http://www.audacity.sourceforge.net & download a version of Audacity your computer can run. There’re a few versions for Windows & Mac so make sure you read up & get one that’s alright to run on your computer.
Next, you’ll need a program to open the Audacity file because it’s a .zip file. Here’s a free program you can use to unzip the Audacity .zip file with if you don’t have WinZip. I think it’s a better program anyway http://www.7-zip.org/download.html
OK! Now, unzip the audacity file, install it & you’re good to go.
Now let’s get to it!
Once you open Audacity, click file on the top right side, from the drop-down menu, select import, find the song you want to slow down, import it & it will appear on the first track. If you click play, it'll play. Easy enough!
Next, find & click "effect" at the tip right of the toolbar and select & change tempo from the drop-down menu. When the change tempo pop-up box appears, reduce the percentage slider you'll see & click OK. You can also preview first, to see if the section is fast or slow enough for your liking, with the privier button in the pop-up box you see the percentage slider in.
Then, the entire song's wave form will shrink to almost its original size. So, just zoom in on the section of the track you slowed down, click play & presto! It plays nice and slow so you can hear the section easily to figure out.
If you want to figure out tiny sections of a song at a time, just keep zooming in & highlighting the sections you want inside the area you slowed down. You'll be able to hear just a few notes at a time, or even single notes.
Last, any section you set up to hear slow can be looped when you play it. Simply by press your shift button on your keyboard & hold you mouse on the play button. That will make digging those hard to hear notes really easy to learn because they repeat over & over. So you can practice with the "mini" section you loop until you get it.
