Song Surgeon
« on: August 31, 2021, 05:18:51 pm »
Has anyone tried this software? Is it worth it?

It is on sale with some other bundled stuff today.

I am probably not ready, by a long way, for it, but am curious, and if it is good, maybe someone else might be interested.

Not sure on this one...

Riffstation is what a lot of folks use. From what I can tell it does a lot of the same things as your link shows. Even better, they claim it is free. I downloaded it, giving up a bogus email address, so they could not sell me. Point is you can likely try this one for free!

We know of no other audio slowdowner software that provides these three features in one program. And of course, that’s just the beginning.

Well Riffstation does all that and has done for years, so they aint looking very far or bigging up their product. Riffstation - slow tempo, change key, use capo or choose full or power chords - has a lot going on.

Like LBro this is new to me but very much like Riffstation, which is not always accurate, especially for "busy" songs. But Transcribe hits the same issues on muddy tracks but will suggest a number of chord possibilities. Not sure how much they are asking for it and would have to investigate further. But think I'll stick with Riffstation for now.

My 2 cents

Cheers

How about Reaper? Can it do some of these things?

Reaper is a Digital Audio Workstation ie mixing/mastering studio program, as far as I know there is no functionality for tone or chord identification that I have encountered but maybe I missed something. Problem with all the progs like Riffstation they tend to identify based on standard tuning, so can only used as a guide. For example The Black Crowes played a lot in open C and you could drop something like Remedy into a program and it would not id the original chords as used on the recording but it may give you something close that is adaptable for standard tuning or at least a bit of a guide to steer you in the right direction.

So I tend to use Riffstation, Transcribe and listen to the OT but a video of the guitarist also pays dividends.

Hope that helps.

Cheers

Hmmm, I wonder if that Song Surgeon isn’t too bad a deal. Seems pretty comprehensive and independent reviews are pretty good.

I looked at the “free” riffstation offer and it looks pretty scammy. Paid is $35, so are the song surgeon additional features worth $50 more?

There are a million partial options it seems, like the spark amplifier, which does a lot, audacity, riffstation, and on and on. How does one choose? Which would be easy for beginners yet would let me grow into it?
