    I think the more interesting feature is the markers. I would like to add to my previous review that the author has been very responsive to my e-mail requests regarding additional features. My sense is that he really wants this to be a quality program and is open to ideas. At least I know there will be ongoing support for the program.

    Decent initial release but years too late to market when the mature AMAZING SLOW DOWNER just does it so much more professionally.

    Nice! Does what it says.

    SloMo playback is cool. 75% sounds very ok. 50% and 25% are a bit worse.

    iTunes playlist support would be even better.

    20 bucks is a bit pricey for my non-professional use. I would by it immediatelly if I would have to transcript interviews or song-texts for a living. Or if MU had it as a 10 buck promo ;)

    I think this has potential. Of the various iTunes alternatives out there, I like this one for several features. Primarily, it's nice to be able to set markers easily in order to repeat just snippets of a song. Also, both the pitch and tempo settings are exceptionally smooth. I would have expected some jumpiness when switching them, but no, they are flawless.

    However, given that iTunes now provides gapless play, I'm pretty spoiled. I would hope that SSAudioPlayer can incorporate this feature. I'd also like to see it have some kind of equalizer or, ideally, to allow VST plug-in effects. Again, given that I use VolumeLogic, I'm kind of spoiled.
