Hello everyone. I just realized today that a product I used to use to learn bass parts off of
jazz and rock records would be extremely valuable in helping me figure out the ornamentations
in Bach's music from professional recordings.

You can record parts of music off of CDs and slow it down to whatever speed you need to
hear what is really going on. Check it out, it really works!

Regards,
Brian

You're right, Brian. I have the same kind of program (different name) on my computer and used it lot when I was having trouble with a Granados score that was littered with printing errors. The piece goes very fast and you can't really hear every single note, but with that program you can.

Hey that's a really neat idea!

But can't you do the same thing with Audacity to slow down parts? (Audacity is free)

I don't really know. I use WavePad and I know you can reverse a file, but I'm not sure about slowing it down. Didn't know you could put a CD recording into an editing program.
