The Amazing Slow Downer is an extremely useful piece of software, and, at $44.95, it is very reasonably priced. Not only that, you get a 30-day free trial period. ASD works like a software CD player. Just put a CD in your computer's drive and play it using ASD. We give it five stars.
ASD slows down the speed of the music - between -50% and +400% time-stretching - without changing the pitch. Wrong key? Change the pitch in semi-tones - at full or lower speed. Out of tune? Adjust the pitch in cents (100ths of a semi-tone) to suit your instrument. It does all this in real-time - just insert the CD and press the play button! It also slows down MP3, AIFF and wave files on your computer in real-time. It also let's you set up loops, so you can identify a certain passage of music and have it automatically repeat. The sound quality is excellent.
Grey finds The Amazing Slow Downer to be extremely useful for transcribing music. Slowing down themusic can be a great help,as well as isolating a challenging passage. It is also great for practicing, for playing along with recorded music at your own pace, tuned to your instrument. Tech support has been very excellent and prompt, often coming from Rolf Nilsson himself, the author of the software.

Have you had friends who lost vast amounts of data and had to start projects all over again, or has that happened to you? Are you one of those people who have the best of intentions about frequently backing up your important data, but rarely get around to doing it?
Once we heard about the fact that you can backup your data via the internet to a remote service, we were intrigued. Since we found Backjack we have been happily and effortlessly backing up our important data every day.
Backjack is very easy to use. It automates every aspect of the backup process. You can schedule when you want your backups to happen, every day, every week, while you sleep. Once you set it up you can forget about it. It works in the background, while you continue your other work.
Having data backed up to a different location than my house or office makes a lot of sense to us.
The pricing is very reasonable. It depends on how much data you back up. It's like a low cost, very smart insurance policy. Plus, I don't have to buy an expensive back-up hardware.
