I have a great track on vinyl which I love and so the oportunity arose recently to (legitimately!) download it. Much to my horror, it was all speeded up. Of course, I had been listening to it at the wrong speed all these months! (Ho Ho!)
Is there a way of slowing down this track to the equivalent of 33 1/3 speed?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Cheers!
MBF.

Get hold of a copy of Audacity:

http://audacity.sourceforge.net/

as long as there's no nasty DRM on the file you should be able to import and use the filters to slow it down.

It's not 'On' by Aphex by any chance is it? Cos I've always listened to that at 33 rpm (on plus 8) rather than 45 - it sounds so much better

Thanks for the advice!
Whats a 'DRM'?
No, its R.E.S.P.E.C.T. by Pendle Coven.
Cheers!

12 years ago I recorded a friend's copy of The Auteurs Vs U-Ziq album on tape at 45rpm.
For over a decade i loved that album, and was delighted to buy a copy on CD off ebay a few months back, in turn relieving the guilt of my act of music piracy - carried out while a poverty stricken student, i hasten to add.
It was only when i pressed 'play' i realised for 12 years i had loved the whole album at the wrong speed.
it's quite a depressing listen at 33rpm.

Toolwise you can't go wrong with:
Prosoniq's TimeFactory 2 PC
a GREAT tool for timestreching....i would think :D
cos i have only used there OLDER version TimeFactory PC hehehe

then what you wanne do is cut the track up into smaller sections...
then stretch them...takes longer...but usually MUCH, MUCH better results :D
peace & respect
