The Amazing Slow Downer (Transcription Software)
This software (also available as an app) is very useful for isolating pieces of music from a recording and looping and slowing them down (without altering the pitch) for transcribing and listening.
I personally use this software for transcribing, listening work and recording practice sessions.
I use it to isolate and repeat small chunks of recordings for listeing purposes.
I use it to slow music down for transcription purposes when necessary.
It’s probably overkill for what I’m using it for, but I’ve got it so I use it…
