Hi,

Can anyone recommend the best app for helping me to transcribe solos (mostly trombone). I'm aware of "Amazing Slow Downer" but I see on the App Store there are lots of other options. The online reviews are a bit old so I'm not sure which of the bunch to get, or which is the best value.

Thanks in advance, Pete

Audacity is free and it has the same feature. I use it sometimes for the very reason you state.

Amazing Slow Downer and Audacity each have their advantages, and they are the only ones I have used.

The best advice I can give is to do as much as you can at the original speed.  Only slow down what you really can't hear.

Something that had true scrubbing (where you can drag the time marker and hear whatever is under the marker as you drag) would be a boon for such an endeavor.

I use Anytune for this. It's an iOS app.

Thanks for the comments. I should have clarified that it should be an iOS app. I've used Audacity for other projects and love it, but I'd like to have integration with Spotify too if possible, and some of the iOS apps have that. I'll look at Amazing Slow Downer and AnyTune (but only use them if I really need them! )
