Have you ever wished you could play along with a recording that was too fast? I certainly have. It turns out that there are programs made especially for slowing down MP3 and other audio files. For example, Pitch Switch is an easy to use program that can slow down MP3s, WAV files, M4A (iTunes) and more. Pitch Switch costs only $40 and you can use it on any number of tracks. Using it is easy, you just open your audio file and drag the tempo slider to speed it up and slow it down. Pitch Switch doesn’t change the tone which is incredible! The tempo (beats per minute) is given in the lower right hand part of the program so you can adjust it to a specific speed if you need to.
Pitch Switch can do more than just slow down your songs. It can adjust the key of your songs too. You can change the pitch of any song by semitone increments using the “Pitch” slider (it’s as easy as slowing down MP3s). It’s really cool because you can change the key as the music is playing back.
Finally, I found that you can save your slowed down MP3s with Pitch Switch so you can copy them back on your MP3 player or burn them to CDs. I’ve found Pitch Switch to be extremely helpful and I strongly recommend you try it too. There is a free trial for download on their website at pitch-switch.com.
