Looking for a linux run equivalent to ronimusic.com 's "Amazing Slowdowner"


I'm a musician who runs ronimusic.com 's Amazing Slowdowner to slowdown music so I can learn complicated pieces. Is there an equivalent software in the linux run collections? Key features are the ability to: shift speed at constant pitch by percent of the file's normal speed, shift pitch by cents or steps, loop,and save the result as a new file. Will be running L ubuntu. Ronimusic has only windows and mac versions.

I have used Audacity for a very lonnnnngggg time.

It has all the tools you'd need to do what you want and more. Simple graphic cut and paste however it isn't command line that I know of.

You might be able to run windows programs on a linux program called wine. However I believe you will find Audacity perfectly fine.

If you obtain quality music at high sample rates, you will find it better. Your entire system should be fast if you want to play at real time.

I generally only use Audacity when playing new songs. You should be able to do any song where you can identify the part that you want. It can be used to identify overall tones but I use other sites for that like Chordify.
I've transcribed hundreds of songs from Les Paul, Chet Atkins, Charlie Christian, to Yes, Hendrix to Willie Nelson and more.

For example. Hendrix recorded a small song that was tuned off of 440. In fact it was something even off 420 which is a common tune. You can adjust the music to match your 440 tune so you don't have to mess with changing for each days songs.

I'll give you some examples.

Keep pitch change tempo (1.5x)
Code:
mplayer file.mp3 -af scaletempo -speed 1.5
Keep tempo change pitch up or down with [ and ] keys
Code:
mplayer file.mp3 -af scaletempo=scale=1.0:speed=pitch
Sox can do that too (makes new file out.wav)
Code:
sox file.mp3 out.wav pitch 400
Change pitch, tempo, volume, equalize
Code:
sox in.wav out.wav speed .8 pitch 300 bass 5 treble 5 norm
See
man mplayer
man sox
man ffmpeg
man mpv
