    We are proud to introduce SlowGold and SlowBlast!, 2 innovative new CD-ROMs from World Wide Woodshed that slow down music! Both programs feature studio-quality slowdown technology to let anyone alter the playback speed of music or other audio without hearing a change in pitch, making them ideal learning tools for all musicians. The simple interface allows users to select tracks and adjust the tempo from 5% to 200% of the original speed, so that they can slow down even the fastest riffs and learn to play any recorded solo, pick out chords and other parts, and absorb the phrasing and style of their favorite artists. Once they have learned to play along at a slow pace, they can increase the tempo - by as little as 1% at a time - and practice along until they can play the music at full speed, or even faster! Regardless of the playback speed, the programs deliver incredible sonic clarity and fidelity. SlowBlast! is a simpler program offered at an incredibly affordable price. SlowGold includes advanced features such as real-time slowdown processing, pitch control, and 100% digital signal processing. In addition to processing analog signals, CD audio and .WAV files, SlowGold now accepts the popular MP3 audio file format. Both programs require Windows 95, 98, NT or 2000, a sound card or chip, 1MB of disk space for SlowBlast! and 12MB of disk space for SlowGold, and a 486/66 or faster processor. A Pentium 166Mhz or better is recommended (300Mhz or better for real-time slowdown and pitch control).

    Slow Blast is a disappointment

    By JazzPlayer

    Comments about World Wide Woodshed SlowBlast! (CD-ROM):

    I purchased this product to use to slow down music so that I could learn riffs. The program interface is poorly designed, the program frequently locks up my computer, when it does not lock up my computer, it responds very slowly, and there are errors in the program interface, for example the second counter counts over 60 seconds, and does not correctly increment the minute counter, so that the program incorrectly reports the length of recorded loops. The customer support from Worldwide Woodshed, the publishers of SlowBlast, was very poor. Save your time and purchase one of the other available programs.

    In the end, it's a really great product

    By Dedicated Hobbyist

    Comments about World Wide Woodshed SlowBlast! (CD-ROM):

    Once you get past the universal, necessary ?fixes? to get this software working, it?s a really great product. Even with a new computer and plenty of processing power, there?s a glitch in the software that requires going to the web site where they walk you through the fix. Fortunately, I was able to get this working with only minor hassles.But, once you set it up, wow. It is really amazing. You put in a CD, select a track and when you get to a passage in the track that you want to learn, you click on ?record?. When you get through that passage, you stop recording and that passage loops over and over at whatever speed you want with no change in pitch. It is really amazing. There was a great blues riff in a Johnny Winter song that has been haunting me for years which I could only get part of (very intricate and very fast). Using Slow Blast, I selected the riff, slowed it down to nearly nothing and nailed the whole passage within 15 minutes. There is no way - - absolutely no way - - I could have figured out that passage without this program. Once it was slowed down, it was pretty easy to figure out how he did it. Now that I?ve got the basic structure of it, I?m working out the finer techniques and the speed. For me, it was worth the money just to nail down that one riff. Once it?s working, this is a really great product. You?ll have to spend a little time setting this up but it is absolutely worth it.
