I am trying to play a piece of guitar lead in a song but it is too fast. Long time back when I had a cassette player, I was able to play any thing real slow by pushing the play button of the player just half way through. I don't have a cassette player anymore and this song is in mp3. There seems to be no option to play it in "slow motion" either in my cd player or in winamp/WMP. Any idea how can play it slow?

well,
I dont know about winamp(although, it must have something for play speed)...but i play music in windows media player9.0 and there is an option for play speed here in play menu ...and from your Mac thread, its obvious that you have got MS windows(at least for the time being )..
shortcuts for play speed options-->
Ctrl + Shift + G --> Fast
Ctrl + Shift + N --> Normal
Ctrl + Shift + S --> Slow

Enjoy
Ramy...

Thanks, Ramendar. I don't know how i missed that. I also found a Plugin for WinAMP that allows you to change the tempo as well as the pitch. It is really great because you don't have to retune your guitar.

There is also a cool product now out that is a CD player that you can change the speed. It is a small player and is actually built for guitar players. You can find them at Guitar Center or other music stores.

Not exactly the specific one I was talking about but here at zzounds.com they have one.

But, this one is the one I was thinking of.

Good luck and let us know how you like them. I wanted to get one myself, just don't have the spare money right now.

I guess the first one has better ratings than the second one. The first one has those effects that you can put on your sound and play along with the CD.

I guess, that will eventually be the one that I buy.

"Easy looping of song sections" That is a feature that I wish my home CD player had. Last night while practicing I had to keep getting the remote and going back a couple of seconds, try to get to the guitar after putting the remote down, and try to get at the right point, then repeat.

But the other one also can loop.


You can set seamless in-out loop points with the CD-GT1 so that it plays the same passage over and over again so you can nail phrases. Use the footswitch input to start playing the CD from any designated point or to scroll through effects.



Can't see if the many loop points feature is in the first one.

Anybody use software like Cakewalk? It will synchronize itself to sound files but don't know if it will manipulate tempo. I've only used it with MIDI.
