This is soooo good. There’s a plug-in for Winamp called PaceMaker. It lets you independently control the pitch and tempo of an mp3 (and probably anything else winamp can play). I’m listening to "Born To Run" at half speed with everyone playing an octave higher. Broadcast plays at break-neck speed detuned to hell. Just Amazing. You have a whole new musical collection to amuse yourself with.
Install it, select it in Preferences -> Plug-ins -> DSP/Effects and a little window should appear. One slider controls tempo (50 to 200%), the next pitch (-1 to 1 octave shift) and the last is the more traditional speed control (50 to 200%) you might find on a turntable. This thing sounds best pushed to extremes, but it’ll cost you some CPU time and winamp may crash after awhile (trying to play a Vorbis file crashed it quick), but you can just open it back up.
2006-06-22: Updated Pacemaker link and it’s no longer nagware!
Don’t end up having to say these words. See Josh, Joe, Tanya and I rock Friday’s Cover Show (Wayward Council) as the one-and-only Henry’s Dress. I’ll be the one providing the head-bopping beats.
Wayward Council is next to Recycled Bikes near the corner of University and 8th St W. No, I don’t know what time it starts, how much it costs, any other details of importance other than I should show up sometime to play. Well, supposedly, other acts include the Jesus & Mary Chain and Operation Ivy…
Lately I’ve been listening to a lot of France Gall.
- I’m back from San Francisco!..a month ago.
- After 5 years, a new phone number to memorize: 337-6050.
I hate Bellsouth and can no longer justify giving them $40 a year to keep my number.
- I moved across town and now live with Andrew Chadwick of Boxcar Records non fame. Don’t stop by the 307 house, the fun and excitement has relocated.
- A proper French Horns site (one page for now) is finally up. The mp3’s are there.
- I’m getting bored with this theme, expect a new style soon.
