Default Can anyone recommend a recorder with speed control that will help me "Cheat" on learning?

Over the past few months, I've seen and heard some awesome licks and fills on Youtube and on my iPod. My problem is that when I try to duplicate them, they're pretty fricken fast and I can't quite break down the drums to hit.

I was thinking that if I could record them, then slow them down - I could then figure out the lick.

Can anyone refer me to a "free" link to a recorder whose speed can be slowed down?
An online link would be great.

Thanks again!

Do you happen to be on a mac? Garageband can slow down the tempo of .mp3 or wav files.

For iphone there is an app called mimcopy, but I don't think its free.

No mac here. I'll keep snooping around the net. I do have MS Moviemaker...maybe that?

Thanks though!

Audio editing program, works great for many things other than just slowing tracks down.

Thanks Middle! I'll give it a try over the weekend. Nothing better than an "AHA" moment after slowing down an intense lick or roll...

I did grab VLC, and actually pretty good. Only problem is when I downloaded it, it snuck in additional programs like "Price grabber, Weather Station, Tool bar something, Search bar", and a few more. I did not see were I could uncheck the extra crap as it installed. Anyways my bad. I went into my PC and deleted the extra junk, and unfortunately the "Click" noise is now disabled when clicking on tabs in browsers. The rest of the audio works fine.

That was my fault though...

This one is cool so far. It's got the audio image on a graph and I can play and replay any section at any speed.

"AHA #1" on a song I am trying to cover..."So that's how he does that" hmmmm....

VLC works and if you really want to slow it down and want better sound quality, then the Amazing Slowdowner is the way to go.

You guys are sharp...

I'm trying this one because of clarity potential. However, it appears that I have to have a copy of an audio file to open up. I am slowing down a song off Youtube, which I don't think I can save as a file.

Can you save a Youtube video (at least the audio)? I wanted to see if I could open it with The Amazing Slowdowner. My son is off to college, he probably would know more about this than the old man!
