===================== Play it slowly Manual ===================== About ===== 'Play it slowly' is a tool to help you when practicing or transcribing music. It allows you to play a piece of music at a different speed or pitch. Shortcuts ========= The following keyboard shortcuts exist: * Alt + P or SPACE: Play/Pause * Alt + e: Rewind * CTRL + 1-9: Rewind (x seconds) Selecting the audio output device ================================= You can select which audiodevice playitslowly uses by passing a gstreamer sink with the --sink commandline parameter. Example: playitslowly "--sink=alsasink device=plughw:GT10" or playitslowly "--sink=alsasink device=hw:1" You can also use other sinks than alsa. Generic Installation ==================== To install use you need to have the following libraries installed: * Python 2.6 (or 2.5 with simplejson installed) * PyGTK >= 2.10 * PyGST >= 0.10 * gstreamer >= 0.10 including the soundtouch/pitch element (included in gstreamer-plugins-bad) Normally these libraries are already installed on your system. To install play it slowly execute: ``python setup.py install`` as superuser (root). If you are using a gnome based system like Ubuntu you can just doubleclick ``install.sh`` and select run. Distribution Specific Installation Hints ======================================== Arch Linux ---------- (this could be obsolete by now) Arch Linux is missing the pitch element, so you'll have to compile yourself:: pacman -S soundtouch cd /tmp wget gstreamer.freedesktop.org/src/gst-plugins-bad/gst-plugins-bad-0.10.9.tar.gz tar xzf gst-plugins-bad-0.10.9.tar.gz ./configure --prefix=/usr cd ext/soundtouch make && make install Then test if it worked:: gst-inspect-0.10 soundtouch Fedora ------ Install gstreamer-plugins-bad-extras Mandriva -------- Install gstreamer0.10-soundtouch. Ubuntu ------ It should work out of the box!
