Hello fellow reso players.
I have a question that maybe someone would be kind enough to answer.
I want to purchase a program that is compatible with windows.
I want a program that will let me replay any section I want, has
variable speed and able to load it with songs that I like.
Maybe Mp3's if possible.
Guitar Pro, power tab, tabledit or tef view. Maybe other programs that I haven't yet run across.
I am learning the reso and I really need to keep playing the sections that I need help with.
As usual, thank you, Bob

Amazing Slow to try and $50 to buy with free updates forever.

Another alternative is Transcribe. Like Amazing Slowdowner, free to try and $39 with lifetime updates

Why not?

I have hundreds of apps but only this company leaves a bad taste in my mouth. I tried ASD years ago but liked TRANSCRIBE! way better, I have used SWEET MIDI PLAYER for years and remember having to pay for update, serial number problems and now it is not supported for my latest mac operating system! Just a nasty company IMO.

There is free software that can do what you want. Audacity is actually sound editing software, but it can do it - You choose the song, then highlight the section you want to play, and it will play it. You can change the pitch or the speed if you want. You can save the snippet for quick access later. It does not work with MP3 - but it imports and instantly converts them to WAV files, so that is not a problem.

VLC Media player will work with video or sound files - any I've ever tried work - but you can not select just a snippet - you would have to know where on the time slider to click to find the section you want to play.

Best Practice is a free download that does what most of the others do - change pitch, change play speed, play (and repeat) snippets. About the only thing about it that bugs me is it does not have a "return" button to bring it back to the start of the track or snippet - you have to pull the slider back. A bit of a nuisance when you botch your intro point, and want to start over right away. Also, I have noticed that Best Practice does not work with MP3's made from bootleg tracks downloaded with some Youtube downloaders - they play back in some off pitch. But Best Practice works with all my official MP3's and other formats.

I'm poor, and cheap - I almost never buy software!
