Speed up podcasts for free with foobar2000

A commenter (Freddie) was struggling with speeding up podcasts with Audacity. (See my how-to on speeding up podcasts with Audacity, version 1 and version 2.) Then, he found this article:

Time stretching [MP3s] and other audio” by Blake Tolbert

I haven’t tried foobar2000 — because I’ve only been into the Kevin and Bean’s podcast from KROQ lately — but it looks legit and much simpler.

Oh yeah, welcome the new blogger! He doesn’t have a contact page and his comment form is broken, so let’s send him some traffic so he could see a spike from my blog.🙂

  1. Thanks for the post! Good to know a few more people will know about the foobar2000 approach. I had never used it either before I gave up on Audacity.

    And thanks for finding my broken comment form (hadn’t tried that yet.🙂 ).
