App Store Description

Serious about music practice? This may be for you.

Import songs & videos from:
- Your music library
- YouTube
- Spotify
- TrueFire.

Access all of this in in one app so you can:

From 50% to 200%
New tempo & original tempo both shown

-12 to +12 semitones.
New key & original key both shown
If you're a little out of tune with the track, don't waste your time retuning your instrument, just use fine adjustment by cents (1/100ths of a tone).

TRAINER (In App Purchase required)
Take a loop through tempos and/or keys.
The key trainer's great for ensuring that you don't get stuck knowing something in just one key. Key training works with: ascending chromatic, descending chromatic, circle of fourths & random.
Next time you come back to the track, the trainer is still there - so you save precious practice time.

AUTOMATIC BEAT, KEY and TEMPO DETECTION (In App Purchase required)
Key and Tempo shown. When you change playback speed or pitch the new tempo/key are shown, so you know what you're working with!
You also get 'beat snapping' so loops can be set up quickly to start/end exactly on the beat.

SELF RECORDINGS (In App Purchase required): You know it’s important to record yourself and evaluate your playing - but it’s a hassle, so you don’t always do it. This feature makes it easier.
Record yourself. The recording is kept with the track/lesson for easy retrieval.
Of course when you playback you can slow down, zoom etc.

Pinch to zoom & scroll. Your zoom & scroll will still be there next time you play the track - so you can zoom in on a player's fingers and not waste your time doing that again next time.

STEP FRAME VIDEO (In App Purchase required)
Great for catching difficult fingerings - especially when used with video zoom.

Mark off and name parts of a track so that you can return to them quickly and loop them

ASSOCIATE FILES (In App Purchase required)
Keep jam tracks and pdf charts along with each lesson for quick access.

Set up once - Practice more - Get better quicker
Tempo Slow Down saves all your work (sections, zoom settings - both for video and charts, pitch, speed, EQ etc.). So when you come back to the lesson or song, you’re ready to go.

METRONOME (In App Purchase required)
Defaults to the tempo of the current track.
Includes a trainer mode to progressively work though tempos.

EQ (In App Purchase required)
10 band EQ to help you isolate parts.

COMMENTS (In App Purchase required)
Write your own comments against any track - great for keeping practice notes.

Grab any track from YouTube and play it back (even offline) with all the above features.

If you're a Spotify Premium subscriber, you can play Spotify tracks through Tempo Slow Down with all the above features.

TRUEFIRE INTEGRATION (In App Purchase required)
We integrate tightly with TrueFire (the world's most comprehensive library of guitar instruction) - access all your TrueFire courses in Tempo Slow Down - including videos, jam tracks, music charts and comments.
What's great is that your TrueFire library is in the same app as all the other songs that you're working on - so you can utilise the same time-saving features on both of them and not have to switch around between apps. After all - your practice time is precious!

The free version is fully functional for the first 5 tracks played - these 5 tracks remain fully functional forever.
Subsequent tracks are fully functional but only play the first minute, after which they stop. If you wish to play longer there are In-App-Purchases for audio-only (which allows you to fully play any audio-only track) and for audio and video (which allows you to fully play all tracks - audio & video).

It's Tommy Harkenrider, master swing blues guitarist and educator. Search for him online!
