slowing down recorded music

For learning music that isn't written down it's a great aid. You can decipher the ornamentation and finer points easily when it's played slowly. You can play along with a recording at a slow tempo gradually boosting the speed as you learn the tune. Windows Media Player has some capability for doing this.

Many years ago, I used to slow down recorded music by playing a 45 RPM record at 33, or a 33 at 16. The former would change the key, and the latter would drop everything an octave. This would necessitate retuning or would make everything sound very strange. A big advantage of these new programs is that all the notes stay the same -- just played slower.
