We receive plenty of unsolicited congratulations on SlowGold. Here are just a few. We hope they give you an idea of why people are using
SlowGold so enthusiastically. We were almost afraid to put them up here, because some are
almost too good to be believed. But they are all from real customers.
rendered all of my other transcribing tools obsolete. Nothing even comes close for quality
and versatility. It eliminates all the guesswork and is helping my ear to reach its
fullest potential. This program is a godsend. Thanks, Woodshed!" - Steve
Gorenberg, professional transcriber
"THIS PROGRAM KICKS ASS !!! I love it. I have already
seen a difference in the way I play" - J.M.
- "SlowGold is a tool that every musician can benefit
from since it really lets you to get inside the music. I wish it had been around when I
was trying to learn how to improvise. Those Wes Montgomery solos would have been much
easier to learn." - Don
Latarski - Jazz Guitar Instructor and author of "Practical theory for
guitar", a player's guide to essential music theory in words, music, tablature and
- The introduction to Mercyful Fate's "To one far
away" had eluded me for years. I knew I was playing the chords wrong. It starts out
with an acoustic guitar that gets overshadowed by an electric guitar about five seconds
into the piece. I was able to hear that it was a real simple set of notes but I'd always
heard the low G and missed out on the E, A and B. When I played it out with
50% slowdown, I could tell exactly what they were hitting and I finally got it. - Robert
Jackson, Berkeley, CA Acoustic Guitar and Violin, "Just messin' around"
"Amazing program. I bought a digital device for about
$500 that does not even measure up to SlowGold. Thanks for the download." - Chris
- "I am a firm believer in the value of practicing
whether it be music, sports, academics, or whatever the endeavor. With only two hours of
experimenting with SlowGold I am convinced it is more revolutionary that Coda Music's
Vivace (now SmartMusic Studio). With SlowGold I am able to practice ANY recording and
learn at my pace which is often VERY SLOW and frustrating. After briefly working with your
software my progress was fast and not at all frustrating. My practice was fun again! I
plan on spending much more time with your software. Thank you for having the desire and
ability to develop such a valuable tool for musicians." - Richard Getso
"I love it. It's great. If you need a
testimonial, just call on me. Not only can I hear each note that is played (which
is often a lot less than it sounded like at full speed) but I even find I can usually tell
which strings are being played and that in turn gives excellent clues to finger
positions! Solos and even rhythm parts I've been playing (wrong) for years have
taken on a whole new life. Ah, if only I'd had this when I was a professional
My next project - breaking out vocal harmonies!
Many, many thanks for your brilliant product!" C. Lee
I'm just stopping by to let you know I've placed a link to
your site - slowgold's so good, every musician should know about it. - Francois Rousseau
- "Webmaster dude/dudette:
I bought a shiny new copy of Slow Gold II yesterday from MicroAge in Santa Ana CA.
Slow Gold II is so good it is a terrible dilemma trying to decide whether to sing its
praises, or keep it to myself to make me look like a musical genius. It is hard to
do it, but I think I will post at the guitar sites I visit letting everybody know how
great SlowGold is. I could not forgive myself for hogging such a miraculous software
for cynical personal aggrandizement.
What impresses me most is the crystal clear preservation of all of the sound: every
pick attack, grace note, finger movement, all preserved. This makes it possible to not
only get the notes right, but to more closely duplicate "style". Most of
these nuances simply can not be heard at full speed playback. If time is money, SGII
paid for itself in one afternoon.
Am I raving?!
Thanks massively for the great software." - T. Morningstar
What a great tool! I have tried other similar products and
the sound quality was pitiful. But the SlowGold is crystal clear even at the slowest
setting. I liked it so well that I purchased SlowGold. - Keven
- "While I was reading a transcription, the transcriber
told me how had had been able to hear what the bassist did. He told me the secret was this
program" - V.S.
- "If you count the time IŽve been sitting here,
youŽll understand that this program is addictive". - F.C.F.C.
- "One of my friends told me about your program because
it helped his band get their lyrics and chords down on paper so all of them could read
it." - D.K.
- "I found SlowGold on a hunt for my favorite rap and
heavy metal songs. The demo proved how wonderful this program really is. Now, we no longer
sing in jibber jabber, because we know all the words! I love it!" - A.L.
"My sister and I own hundreds of CDs and we hate it when we open up the case,
take out the booklet and don't find any words to the songs."
- "Finally, a comprehensive guitarists' and musicians'
tool that is easy to use , and very stylish and slick" - D.C., South Africa.
"I'm 19 yrs old, live in Port Elizabeth and play guitar (a really old flame top Les
Paul). So far, I've been using SlowGold to work out solos that are just too quick to hear
by ear. In particular, Marty Friedmann and Jason Becker. (Worlds hottest guitarists) and
the results are astonishing to say the least. I can now hear their use of scales and
modes, and even individual notes"
- I must say, this is going to be my most usable piece of
equipment. I'm glad I didn't buy any of the hardware out in the market. I play guitar, and
I love playing Stevie Ray's music. In the 2 hours I was on SlowGold yesterday, his most
complex solos became revealed. Thanks for the free trial - Aris Makris, Montreal, Canada
- "SlowGold is great! This is the best software I've
seen in a long time. I only wish I had it years ago when I started learning guitar (of
course, they didn't have PC's back then, but that's besides the point)." - Jim Schenk
- "I think that this is an incredible product! It's
really what I've been looking for for years." - Jonathan Hunt
- "Thanks for the great product!" - Tim Gruenhagen
- "SlowGold blew me away, the sound is crystal
clear." - Francisco C. Flores
- "SlowGold has greatly improved the efficiency of my
practice time. The countless hours that I used to spend trying to figure out *what* was
being played is now spent *learning* the music. It is also a useful adjunct
toinstructional CD's I can loop each of the examples individually (typically several
examples are lumped together on one track) and then have instant access to *each* example
which will loop endlessly (and can be slowed down too, if necessary)." - W.L.
- "I love the product and plan to buy it. What else can
I say?" - Dennis Meixsell
- "I have been playing guitar for 31 years, sure could
have used something like this in my younger years playing cover tunes and working so hard
trying to get it just right. I also work as a network engineer, so I download a lot of
evaluation software. After playing with SlowGold for about 10 minutes I knew I had to
purchase it. So I did, (and what a great price)." - Larry Burroughs
