If you play guitar, you know the frustration of solos being too fast for you.
Slowhand, a digital platform built in Philly, wants to help players of all instruments improve their chops by controlling instructional videos without affecting sync or pitch.
The system lets musicians zoom in, loop certain parts and other fun tricks. This nifty-looking stomp box is an interesting addition to the platform, which lets users control the platform hands free.
The PC version took a year and a half to build, and the most recent Mac version — released last week — took approximately six months.
Amit Rao — who you might remember as the developer behind ParkSnap — and his design studio Pixie Bytes worked with Slowhand CEO Bob DeKett to get the desktop versions up and running.
“Amit’s team has done a fantastic job in helping us bring this anticipated Mac version of Slowhand to market,” said DeKett.
