    I'm looking for a program that slows down music files. I play guitar, so it helps to learn a song when you can actually play along with the actual recording. I tried putting it in GarageBand and changing the tempo, that didnt work. Any (preferably) free programs to do this?

    Duff-Man says....not free unfortunately, but a great program is Amazing Slow Downer ....it'll do the job wonderfully. I know there's another good one for this but I can't recall it at the moment.....oh yeah!

    ASD works well

    I've used ASD and it works well... just too slow on my iMac 400Mhz, it usually craps out halfway through a song. Converting the files to AIFF first helps somewhat, but its a hastle, and it uses up my precious Hard Drive space. Unfortunately I haven't heard of any other programs that can do this.

    Duff-Man says....ah...remembered the other one - TimeToy / TimeToyPro - not quite the quality of ASD but cheaper (and a really "lite" free version).....oh yeah!
