    Just started using my Fostex MR-16 in my home studio. Will be doing demos for original songs, but also want to slow down tracks to figure out fast licks from recordings. No direct instructions on this function in the manual, and having trouble getting tech support from Fostex... Any ideas? Appreciate any input for a new user...

    Don't look for this function on the Fostex. Transfer the song to a PC or Mac and use almost any DAW software that will change the speed of the track without shifting the pitch.

    Boswell,

    Turns out I have Audacity already on my computer, was able to import MP3, and slow it down as I needed, all in less than five minutes. Thanks again for the advice, most helpful. Thirty years as a pro, and I still learn something new almost every day... Thanks.

    There are programs that make a better job of it than Audacity, but I'm glad you got something usable.
