SlowGold Noticed in Electronic Musician
The current (September, 1999) issue of Electronic Musician magazine contains a
nice review of SlowGold by Mike Lawson. Lawson sums it up by stating, "If I am
seriously attempting to learn a part, though, I would rather sit down in front of my
computer wtih SlowGold than plug my CD player into a foot pedal and try the
same thing. Having visual control over the edit poitns of the loops is a tremendous
benefit." Thanks to the nice folks at EM for recognizing us!
SlowGold author and well-known music technology columnist Warren Sirota is
interviewed in the new Italian electronic music magazine, Plug-In. Read the
English version of the interview here.
The features in this latest upgrade (free to registered owners of SlowGold) include
a built-in Digital Audio Recorder (for recording tapes and LPs to disk), easy saving of
slowed-down files, support for multiple CD-ROM drives, "fast access" to the
graphical loop view, and a host of convenience features designed to make it even easier
and faster for anyone to get on the fastest "slow" road to becoming a
better player or singer. And, of course, the dramatic new price of $49.95! more

Errata - The Windows Sound Recorder
In the previous issue of Woodsheddin', we gave instructions on how to use the Windows
Sound Recorder to record sound from cassettes or LPs. Then readers started writing in
telling us that the Windows Sound Recorder can only record about 1/2 minute of sound on
most systems! Whoops! So, to make up for this, we've included our own Recorder as part of
SlowGold.All the other sections of the
original article, about mixer settings for the recorder, still apply.
