Hi,
For Muad'Dib you are fairly pessimistic ;) Now seriously, it is added to To-Do but no promise it will be implemented and when Importance is that Spice flows.

Any update or plan for this?

Hi,
This is not as easy as it sounds due teh DSP processing.

Anyway I have found one that works with MMW.

https://www.ronimusic.com/winamp.htm on install select main MMW folder not plugins folder. I'll see if I can make MMIP package.

To make it work in MMW do this:
1. Open Tools -> Options -> Output Plugin and Select waveOut plugin
2. Click configure and lower buffer to 200ms
3. Click on DSP plugins and enable Roni Music slow me down
4. after that all should be obvious and you can control pitch and tempo

Note: After ensuring all works I suggest MMW restart so that settings are saved.

Please let me know the results I'm curious.

I also have been trying to get this working for awhile, especially a lot of universities do lectures and people need to use VLC etc to watch them, but MM would be so much better to know where you are left off and organized etc. A simple rightlick context menu next to subs would be awesome like Thanks.

Any word on if variable playback speed (without affecting narrator voice pitch) will become a reality for MM 4.x ?? Or is it already capable? If so, how please?

Bump on this, would be very helpful for audiobooks, podcasts, and even video files.

Ok, slight correction on the Procrustes plugin - the slider doesn't exactly go away when you close the Options dialog; it hides behind the main window. I couldn't see it behind maximized MM, but when I closed and reopened MM, I noticed the slider pop up a second before the program did. So if you move the program window to the side or something, the slider is there, it's just hard to access. So anyway, the plugin still doesn't suffice for this functionality in any convenient way.

There's a plugin called Procrustes that I tried. It was recommended highly by some WinAmp users, but it's really difficult to find as it is no longer available through the WinAmp site, and the developer is nowhere to be found. Eventually I found the plugin here: http://users.hal-pc.org/~clement/Winamp ... 0Skin.html - inside a zip file linked halfway down the page under the link name, "Security template". It works, but it's a pain to use once installed. You have to go to Tools > Options... > DSP Plugins and check the Procrustes box, whereupon a slider pops up that lets you change the playback speed. But the slider goes away when you close the Options dialog, and to get it back you have to navigate back to the plugin, and then un-check and re-check the box.

The request remains: MediaMonkey needs a simple, easy-to-access command to adjust playback speed. Even just a few buttons for 1.25x, 1.5x, and 2x would be adequate for me, but of course a slider would be better.

Just want to keep this request alive. This feature is overdue in my opinion. It would be invaluable to me to catch up on podcasts when I periodically fall behind.

I'll add my vote to this request. I've tried the various plugins suggested before (including "Take It Easy"), and either they don't work at all, or the sound quality of the faster playback is so poor that it's useless. Here's my post from last summer about these plugins: http://www.mediamonkey.com/forum/viewto ... 77#p304698

To those who are using other audio programs that do allow you to increase the speed, which ones do you recommend, and how good is the adjusted audio quality?
