I'm pleased to announce that our new practice tool Speedshifter is now available to download from www.abrsm.org/speedshifter.
Speedshifter allows you to vary the speed of audio from CD or MP3 without altering the pitch. Simply load a track and turn the dial to slow it down or speed it up - the pitch remains the same. If you load an ABRSM minus one track Speedshifter will know the starting tempo of the track and position the dial automatically at the correct point on the tempo/BPM ring. Speedshifter will work with any CD or MP3.
Speedshifter is designed to be used whenever a student might benefit from playing along with the accompaniment at a reduced tempo.
The tool is absolutely free - we hope you enjoy it!
