Transcribe Music - Slow it Down

Any of you use something to slow tuners down to transcribe?

Working on Du Monde today … don’t have my tab book yet but can’t wait so today I did a simple search to see what there is to slow things down…this cracks me up it is so easy. It’s free to use unless you want to go below 50% of the speed. Very easy to use just drop the link in and go.

I use Anytune and Transcribe. Both are great.


Also, Ben Eller uses some plugin is his DAW, can’t recall the name though. But he demonstrates in the video he did about the Tornado of souls solo

I haven’t used any of these tools, but I’ll give them a go! I usually play live or playthrough videos on Youtube half speed, so I can see the notes, picking patterns, etc. It also helps me to figure out the tuning of the song quickly.

If you need to go slower or need to muck with the audio in other ways, Audacity has been around forever and is also free.

It’s amazing the tools available these days.

I decided to buy Guitar Pro to utilize the guitar pro files that come with Open Source tab book. I found I can slow it as much as I want and I can also follow the tab more easily as it goes…and play along

Occasionally if I am struggling with hand positioning I will look at the vid and slow down to 50%.

I am working to play Du Monde and for the first section hand positioning had me thinking so the visual play through is a great help and inspiration.

I use Cronotron from the Microsoft store. PC based app that downloads youtube songs and videos to edit. You can slow it down without changing the pitch and also sync the audio and video up.
Great app!!
