SuperMegaUltraGroovy introduced Capo, a new Mac OS X application designed to help aspiring musicians learn to play their favorite tracks.
Capo slows down songs from iTunes without changing the pitch, letting users hear every note and chord and play along at their own pace.
Capo is designed to allow users to adjust the speed and pitch of audio, independent of one another. Pitch adjustments can be made finely, to match an instrument's tuning, or coarsely, to change the song's key. In addition, users can set markers, and create loops, to aid their learning, SMUG says. All these settings can be saved in Capo documents, so that users can later return to where they left off.
Capo can be used by dragging songs from iTunes onto its icon in the Dock, or any open Capo window. Alternatively, users can employ the standard File Open panel, which includes access to the iTunes library, and search functionality.
Pricing & Availability
A trial version of Capo is available for download from the product website at capoapp.com. The trial limits playback of each song to 5 minutes, after which the audio signal will begin to degrade.
Capo can be purchased within the application's embedded, secure store for $49. Until July 1, Capo is available for an introductory price of $39. Capo is compatible with all Macs running Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard.
