    Amazing Slow Downer(Roni Music)
    vs. Song Surgeon


    Amazing Slow Downer by Roni Music was one of the first software programs available to slow down music. Like most programs available, Amazing Slow Downer (ASD) can speed up or slow down the tempo without changing the pitch.

    Tempo or speed change settings range from 20% to 150 %. Pitch change settings are done in increments of a semitone and range 12 semitones or one octave in each direction. ASD also has a built in equalizer and a loop editor. A screen capture appears below.

    Amazing Slow Downer (ASD) has excellent sound quality with pitch and tempo change... that is its strong point. However, the main user interface is somewhat confusing. It has no wav form editing capabilities and no ability to insert multiple loop areas.

    The new release of Song Surgeon, Version 3.0, contains dramatic changes and improvements from earlier versions. Version 3 is available in both a Standard and a PRO model. The table toward the bottom of the page compares the differences between the Standard vs. Pro vs. Amazing Slow Downer.

    The PRO version of Song Surgeon (SS) contains some unique features not found in any similar software.

      Two Algorithms -    SS contains 2 time stretching algorithms to accomplish pitch and tempo change. This maximizes sound quality and provides distortion-free audio even at extreme changes.


      Multiple Loop Areas -    SS enables you to set an unlimited number of loop areas, not just one, which is the standard. Moreover, each loop area can have its own unique settings.


      Wav form editing -    SS has a number of useful wav form editing features. This enables users to cut and paste wav form data within an instance or between instances, thereby creating customized audio files for practice or performance.


      Sniffer Technology -    SS contains our proprietary sniffer technology which finds the links of audio and video files you play in your browser and helps you download this for use in the program.
      Export -    SS enables you to Export changes you have made to a file, thereby making them permanent. This new file can be played back in any other player such as iPods or MP3 players and the changes made in SS will reside in the new file.


    While the slow-down technology remains the most commonly used feature found in these types of programs, and musicians remain the most common users, the new version of Song Surgeon with its many new functionalities will certainly open the door to use in many other fields such as dance, exercise classes, transcription, karaoke, translation, and worship music to name a few.

    Song Surgeon provides a 4-hour fully functional working demo. Four hours may seem like a lot of time, but we caution you to close the program when not using it to preserve this time. We also suggest that you watch the training videos found on the website before using the program, as these will help you get up to speed quickly with the operations of this very useful software. You can download the DEMO version from here.
