Slow Down Music Player
By Andy Davidson
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
A music player for musicians, singers, dancers, choreographers, and students. It lets you really hear all the nuances.
Slow Down Music Player makes it easy to learn new songs by slowing down or speeding up play back without changing the pitch! The song will sound the same as the original just faster or slower.
You can use the phrase editor to isolate the tricky parts of a song like the solo or a cool lick, and loop that section over and over again.
Use it to slow down a song to work out a tricky solo, hear the lyrics, or work on a transcription. Use it to choreograph a dance routine. Makes a great vocal trainer.
Use the speed up feature it to review lecture notes, pod casts or audio books stored in your iPod Music Library
Works with guitar, bass, trumpet, piano, voice, or any other instrument or audio file.

Great Tool !
This is a great App folks! Isolate certain sections of a song easily. For example, I isolated a section of Heart's song 'Magic Man' from 2:13-3:14 (full minute) so I could learn the lead guitar part note -for-note. I knew most of it already but one part was frustrating me. So I isolated that section and slowed it down half-speed and voila! I figured it out! But here is the great part...PLEASE UNDERSTAND THIS....this App does not cause the song to sound like it is in a different key!! It keeps the original sound and slows it down! I have played guitar seriously for 30 years and can figure out most leads quite readily, but now and then I can't quite figure it out. This tool helps me nail it down. If you desire to grow as a lead guitar player, or rhythm, and like to figure out leads from the great players we all adore, this is a great tool! Any song you have on your iPod or iPhone can be used! I am not associated with the company that makes this App, just a guitar player! Rock On my friends!! Stay thirsty!!
Change your world for the better through music!! Blessings, Phil
Practical musician's tool
Great tool to study songs. Does what you need. Accesses songs in "iPod" or that which you have in your library as well as storing songs from other sources like emailed mp3's from band mates and others- handy as it's a hassle to get these into your library. I struggle a bit with the playback control bar in that I seem to select times forward or back as a step function and not continuous, but can't tell if it's my stubby fingers on an iPhone screen or the way the app works. That said, I find the app very useful and use it all the time to analyze songs and easily highly recommend it.
Very good, with minor bugs
Great for transcribing solos. It has very good sound quality when slowed down - few artifacts until you get below -20%. The dialog for defining phrases is useful for creating loops that line up with the bar line, so you can practice with them.
Some minor bugs are annoying. When defining a phrase, changes to the phrase start and end points sometimes don't "take" - the app reverts to the previous values. Also, I've had trouble entering numerical phrase names - 2:1 2:2, for example, to replace a previous name.
While the phrase definition dialog is great for precisely defining phrases, it would be nice to be able to define a phrase on the fly with an "A" "B" loop button.
Another handy feature would be a facility for adjusting the pitch of samples by cents, for recordings that aren't at A=440 pitch. That would save having to retune my guitar. :-(
Overall, though, it's a great app - nice work!
