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 3.4 or newer
 * PyGI (Python GObject Introspection)
 * GTK3
 * gstreamer 1.0 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.
