The musician's favourite practice tool. It's slow-motion for audio: load a song, select loops and have Riffster play over them at any tempo to suit your style or ability. Freely adjust the pitch of songs too. Tweak recordings that don't match your instrument's tuning or simply shift keys to match your vocal range!

Read what people are saying about Riffster...

"I'm in a band and my guitarist just loves to change the keys which makes it very difficult to learn some of the songs... Riffster makes it very easy for me... The 2 features I like are the pitch change and save as MP3 with new settings... The download went smoothly... Thanks so much guys."

"Essential learning tool - exceptional versatility. A very good product."

"When variable speed & tone CD players broke the $200 mark, I was thrilled to pay $149 for the Tascam CD-GT1. Trying out the Evaluation version of Riffster, I certainly expected something less than the GT1. To my surprise, Riffster plays back audio that doesn't warble when slowed and unlike the GT1, has more features, e.g., raising the pitch while varying playback speed, better loop control..., A very impressive learning tool for less than $25. I wouldn't pay that much for the GT1 now, after using Riffster!"
