Have you ever tried to learn how to play a song on guitar, drums, or any other instrument? You start out with some easy songs, master those, then move up. Eventually, though, you hit a wall -- a song that's so difficult to learn, it almost drives you right back to Guitar Hero!

But wait, don't closet that axe just yet! Get a little help from Guitar & Drum Trainer!

With Guitar & Drum Trainer, you'll be able to slow down music without changing the pitch! By setting the playback of the music to a pace that you can handle, you'll be mastering a whole new level of songs from day one! Pick out notes and chords that you never realized were even there when you were listening at full speed! Loop a segment of a song over and over until you can play it perfectly.

Don't let the name fool you -- Guitar & Drum Trainer works to improve your learning on ANY instrument. With the ability to learn songs of any complexity at your own pace, you may even find yourself having the time to learn how to play even more instruments!

Guitar & Drum Trainer even offers benefits for folks whose only instrument is their VOICE. Using Guitar & Drum Trainer, you can strip the vocals from music tracks to practice your singing, karaoke style. Shift the pitch of any song to bring them into your vocal range!

Michael R. I downloaded the v4 trial-version. Where can I find the described encode (=save) functionality?

If have a loop in my project, will the appropriate part be twice in the resulting mp3 as intended?

Thank you...

Ryan Smyth You need to put the LAME codec in the GDT program files directory. It's here:

You can also download it from this page on the left side:

Just unzip it into the GDT folder, which is usually something like this:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Renegade Minds\Guitar and Drum Trainer

Start GDT and load an audio file, e.g. a WAV or MP3.

Next, click File Save Slowed/Pitch Shifted Song...

In the encoder window, set the speed and pitch, and choose FLAC or MP3. Make sure to choose a new path and file name for the slowed/pitch shifted song.

Click the Encode button, and it will start encoding the new file for you.

For saving individual loops, that's coming in the next release. At the moment GDT saves only complete songs.

I hope that answers your question ok.
