Has anyone had experience with the Apple I Pad, Mac Air, or the Mac Pro. What was your experience. Trying to figure out which one to buy. Bottom line: I want to be able to play cd’s at different speeds without changing the pitch

There’s a great piece of software available for FREE called “The Amazing Slowdowner” . Very simple and I use it a lot. I know it works on a PC. Not sure about Mac.

You might also consider the Roland CD-2 recorder. In addition to
handling your slow-down needs, WITHOUT a computer, it’s extremely
versatile in its prime purpose, which of course is recording. It
will also playback pitch shifts, without changing the tempo, if
that’s of any interest to you.
