Winamp Slow Down Speed

Posted : admin On 1/2/2022

These techniques are for listening with a computer.

Enhancements, and then click Play speed settings. Move the Play Speed slider to the speed at which you want to play the file, or click the Slow, Normal, or Fast links. Note: Slow Normal and Fast are preset speeds. Normal is 1.0 (default), Slow is 0.5, and Fast is 1.4. Winamp ith Pacemaker wwill slow down tunes from a CD without all that messy Microsoft ripping. Also you can slow down or speed up video files, which is interesting to say the least.

  • Slow down audio output Winamp Development The free customizable Winamp media player that plays mp3 + other audio files, syncs your iPod, subscribes to Podcasts and more.
  • A leaked version of Winamp 5.8 recently spread over the Internet. Consequently, we have decided to make this new version available to you, revised by us. We therefore recommend that you download this version rather than any other as we guarantee it is safe for you to use.
  • Windows 7 is a much better operating system than its predecessors, but still has a tendency to slow down over time. Aside from hardware changes like more RAM, a faster drive, etc., keeping your system clean of junk helps a lot. CCleaner is an excellent tool for that, and it’s free from Piriform.com as well.

It is a commercial product ($49.95 US), the Amazing Slow Downer fromRoni Music. It's targeted to music files but it works on audio books.

I downloaded and tested it on a LibriVox file and it does work. Lotsof settings, but I just tried with the default. It doesn't change thepitch of the voice. It looks like you can even re-save the files inbatches after slowing them down. For Mac & Windows.

Slow Me Down plugin for Winamp from Roni Music (free)

I have used, and loved, their freeware Winamp plugin. Though I didn'trealise I had such an old version of Winamp on the other computer. Iused it for slowing down music, but it would work okay on voices, Ithink, since you can tweak the pitch too if need be. An excellentchoice if the listener has an old computer (mine was on Win 98.) Icouldn't save the slowed file, but it was fine for listening on thespot, and can be easily turned off to listen at normal speed withoutlosing preferred settings (though those will vary by book anyway.)

Notice that, even though the Web page for this plugin says it 'onlyworks with Winamp 2' and 'does not work with Winamp 3 or higher', Ijust tested it with Winamp 5 (the latest major version) and it doeswork.

Winamp Slow Down Speed App

One change speed (tempo) and pitch independently. Speed can beregulated from 1/4 faster to 1/2 slower.

However, there were some imperfections. Occasionally, the sound wouldbe a bit garbled -- noticeable, but not real objectionable. Also, Itried it with a !LibriVox recording by a female reader. At all slowerspeeds, her voice sounded hollow like she was talking inside a box.

If you try it out, keep in mind there's a brief delay in betweenchanging the setting for speed or pitch and the software catching upand applying the change.

Nullsoft Signal Processing Studio DSP plugin which comes with Winamp

WinAmp's built-in Nullsoft Signal Processing Studio DSP plug-in has atempo control. Go to Preferences > Plug-ins > DSP/Effect > Nullsoft Signal[...] > Enable processing, and then use the vertical slider to changethe speed. Takes a second to kick in after you make a change.

In my installation of Winamp, the Nullsoft Studio has 17 different DSP(i.e., Digital Signal Processing) functions which can be individuallyloaded. The only one I can see which lets you slow down a recordingis labeled: 'justin - simple pitch and tempo (half-2x) control'.It's a speed control, which means it changes tempo and pitch together.


VLC Media Player (free)

The free media player VLC has several types of controls for increasingor decreasing playback speed, like you can do with a DVD player. However,changing the speed of playback also changes the pitch of the voice.

Across the width of VLC's small window, there is a progress bar andslider. On either end are double triangles (arrow heads), which increaseor decrease playback in fairly big steps.

At the bottom of the window is a status bar divided into three segments.The one in the middle shows the playback speed. Right-click on thatsegment (on the displayed speed) to open a speed control slider, whichallows finer control than the double triangles.
