I downloaded this the other day. I have not spent a great deal of time using it but it certainly looks very good. I just need to watch some tutorial videos to get the best out of it.

I would definitely download it and give it a try smile.gif

Don't you have Logic Pro X? Cause there is a feature called "Varispeed" in Logic that can do the slow down and with the built-in EQ plugin you can do the isolate stuff yourself.

No way. Really. I will check this out! I guess this brings me back to the, "how we'll do you know your gear thread" laugh.gif
I'll look at it tomorrow afternoon.

I tried this one and I have to say that I prefer much more my ears. I experimented with a song by my band and these thing used to confuse chords, and we don't use very complex stuff so I can't imagine what can happens if we play a song by Tesseract there, does it explode? tongue.gif

So my suggestion is to download a try free ear training software.

I even have some on my cellphone so check Google Play if you use Android.

I've used it and it seemed cool smile.gif I didn't use it that much though as I don't usually learn music that way. If I want to learn a song, I usually just listen to it and play along until I get it. However, it dooes have some spiff features smile.gif Worth a demo for sure!

Where the play, stop, record etc. buttons are, right click on the grey area around it. Then press 'Customize Control Bar and Display'.

Under LCD, change it to custom and click on the box next to varispeed. It'll show up as a -+ sign on the top right.
