I’m looking for a MP3 software player for Ubuntu, which supports pitching
songs. This means the user can change the speed of the song in a way that it
does not sound strange.
I have seen a plugin called scizzor for Amarok and XMMS. However, I’m not able
to compile it, it might be the source code is depending on too old libraries or
I also found no available plugin for BMP. On the other hand Mixxx looks nice,
but there is no package for it. I was able to compile it by myself, but
configuring Jack is a nightmare and the alsa and oss support does not seem to
So basically I just want a very simple player, it can also be shell based.

dbmix and gnusound seem to have the ability to do what you want and they
are in the repositories so an
apt-get install dbmix gnusound
should give you something to try.
wsola looks interesting:[08:52 PM][J:1][sinner@~]$ apt-cache search wsola
wsola – Allows one to speed/slow audio without altering its pitch
but I dont believe it is a player, but then again, I havent tried any of

Ok, dbmix doesn’t fulfil the requirement of being simple. But it seems to work.
The drawback that I do not need a mixer, just something for pitching. But of
course I can put of the channels on master and the other on cue. Still there
are lot of latencies with this solution.
I can’t get gnusound to work, but what I read it is more an audio editor than a player.
The same as above, it is a audio editor and not a player.
Anyway, thanks for your input, at least I now have dbmix!
