Play it Slowly Manual

'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.

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.

playitslowly "--sink=alsasink device=plughw:GT10"
playitslowly "--sink=alsasink device=hw:1"

You can also use other sinks than alsa.

 * Python 3.4 or newer
