    "poor product, horrible, dangerous, and evil installer"

    March 18, 2013  |   By banjodan

    Version: BestPractice 1.03

    Pros

    free, or so they say

    Cons

    The CNET installer is absolutely HORRIBLE. It tries to install all kinds of crapware. Whoever at CNET decided to do this deserves only to work behind a circus elephant with a shovel and a bucket.
    I installed the product from a different source. The speed changer function is weird. It doesn't actually work but it does add a sort of echo effect to the songs.

    Summary

    Product isn't worth the trouble,
    CNET downloader is SCUM! Spyware for sure, settings-changer for sure, and who knows what malware, viruses, backdoors, keystroke capturers, etc. it might install? CNET was honorable for years. No longer.
    REMEMBER: CNET DOWNLOADER IS SCUM!!

    Updated on Mar 25, 2013

    It's unusable for me. When I try to slow down or speed up a song it's so distorted that I can't hear much other than distortion. There's a sort of unsynchronized multi-track effect.
    I have a pretty standard setup here. Windows 7 on a PC with an AMD Athlon dual-core processor, 5 Gbytes of RAM. Primary browser is Firefox 19.0.2 so I don't think my system is the problem.
    I'm glad the program is free. If I had paid for it I would return it for a refund.
    Try it. You might have a better experience that I did.

    "Not for speech"

    May 29, 2012  |   By aa787

    Version: BestPractice 1.03

    Pros

    Good for music files

    Cons

    Not so good for speech

    Summary

    I only tried it for speeding up podcast speech. Not really suitable for this. The voices aren't clear enough when tempo increased >150%; no batch mode; only saves .WAV files.

    "Perfect Practice Software"

    February 22, 2009  |   By cs3125

    Version: BestPractice 1.03

    Pros

    Scope and execution and price

    Cons

    Not applicable

    Summary

    Scope is just right. Open an mp3, click play, click to set the start of the passage you want to work on, click to set the end point, set a percentage slowdown, click loop, and get to work on your chops. All you need, done just right.
    After a few minutes using it I was very impressed and so grateful that somebody would put it out there for free I had to join cnet and leave my first review. Thank you for your fine work.

    "Best FREE riff learning tool"

    November 15, 2008  |   By scottmo223

    Version: BestPractice 1.03

    Pros

    Simple to use
    Excellent features
    No spam or problems
    It's FREE!!!

    Cons

    A play list might be nice, but not absolutely necessary
    Sound sometimes gets a little digital when slowing down the song a ton, but you can still hear the notes. Plus it's free so who cares

    Summary

    Very simple program, easy to run. The loop is excellent especially when your really trying to nail a certain solo in a song. It could be useful for bass and drums as well. I definitly would recommend this as opposed to spending $50 for a more flashy program. Might as well give it a try! it's free.....

    "Great, small, as advertised AND FREE"

    September 28, 2008  |   By gsokolow

    Version: BestPractice 1.03

    Pros

    It slows down CDs, and MP3s.
    It loops and creates looped files

    Cons

    I couldn't figure how to Exit since the menu structure was not starndard, but once yu have saved your files, you can just hit the "X"

    Summary

    Great free program. Seems to do as much as the $30 to $50 ones. Works as advertised

    "Useful Utility"

    July 16, 2008  |  

    Version: BestPractice 1.03

    Pros

    Has a few useful features. Great for learning riffs.

    Cons

    You need to open songs from your HDD one at a time. Needs to have a playlist feature.
