||This is a
popular Freeware MP3 player.
||This is another great MP3 player. You can rip all your CDs to MP3s and then put them away. MusicMatch will organise them all for you, and you can make play-lists and have a great time :-)
||This is where to go to download the Real Audio
player, which is now called RealOne. It's something you should definitely get hold of to hear all those
streaming sounds now available on the internet. Make sure you follow the links to the free version, unless you want to pay for the more sophisticated player.
||This is the
best Tab Editor I've found, and I've tried out quite a few. You can download an
evaluation version, but I found that the registered version was loads better.
It's only $55 US, and you can display and print your music in tab and in
standard notation. It will play the tab you enter as a midi file. In fact, it
does tons of stuff - nip across to the web page and take a look.
||Probably the best music notation software in the world. At £595 UK it's pretty expensive, so
I don't have a copy, but it's there on my wish list. For a professional musician, though, or an accomplished amateur, it represents great value. You can download an evaluation copy from the web site and drool...
||This is a
great programme for slowing down sound files in order to tab them out. I do
this often with CDs - it's fun, and a good way to develop a good ear. SlowGold
($49.95 US) slows down the file without changing the pitch, and the sound
quality is very good indeed. There's also SlowBlast ($19.95 US)
||This is a
digital audio software package. I started with the
evaluation version, but now I'm using the registered version with the Studio Plugin.
It's now possible to order it online. Cool Edit
2000 costs $69 US.
"grabs" digital audio from CDs, producing perfect copies in WAV or
MP3 format. It's Shareware, and great!
|Alternate Guitar Tuning Applet
||This is a
great little program for help with alternate tunings.
|Chord Diagram Maker
||Over on RMMGA
recently, someone commented that it would be very useful to have a little
program to make clear chord diagrams. So David Moss just wrote one! Thanks very
much indeed, David :-) It's available on David'd Website. (Download chords.exe,
notes.ini, ctones.ini and readme.txt, and start by reading the readme
|Paint Shop Pro
||A great graphics programme by JASC. Easy to use,
sophisticated and great value: download a trial version and try it out. Also
see Mardi Wetmore's excellent tutorials right
||Just in case there's anyone who wants it but
hasn't yet got it. Excellent programme!
||I wanted to add a site search facility here as my pages keep growing. I looked around and found this one, and I think it's a pretty cool programme :-) I did find it a little confusing initially, but after a bit of thought and playing around it now seems to work seamlessly. Check it out :-)
little FTP client.
||Just follow the links there to download a copy
of Forte's Free Agent, IMO the best Offline Newsreader around. Except for
Agent, of course...which, for a small fee, also does email.
|Time & Chaos
||This is a great shareware Personal Information
Manager (!) from iSBiSTER. I've used it for several years now, and it shows you
all the information on the one page. Inexpensive too. Highly
||This isn't shareware, so you can't download a
copy, but I've included it because it's a truly wonderful programme. Anyone
with a disk larger than 1gig should definitely check it out. Partition and
recover loads of space, reorganise your disk, play to your heart's content
||This is a great image viewer. You can download and try out
an evaluation copy.
