Default Drum Software

Hey guys, I've been playing along to tracks for years, but I wanted to know if there was a software out there that could slow tracks down and also isolate the drum parts.

my go-to lately is export from youtube with http://www.youtube-mp3.org/ to MP3 and then use Audacity (free -- http://audacity.sourceforge.net/download/) to slow down the track & transcribe the drum part. to slow down in Audacity, import the file [File | New | IMport Audio] then slow down w/ [Effect | Change Speed].

You might also try my Sample Wrench software which I recently turned into a free resource. It's a complete sound sample editor and analyzer. There are a couple different ways of slowing down the audio without changing pitch. You can find it here. The latest version is 5.7. Windows only.

The best app that I know to make loops is called Transcribe!
First it was made to help transcribe, and I've never seen anything else that makes it easier to figure out song structures.
Then to help you practice a song, you can make loops and save (and name) an unlimited number of them, and you can slow down if needed.

The Speed Up function is great: You can take a loop (or a whole song) and decide a starting speed. Then you decide the number of times it's going to be played at that speed, and then you choose the speed-up percentage.

It's available for Mac, Windows or even Linux, is pretty cheap and free to try for one month.
Also, it can handle many types of sound files as well as movies.
