The program DC ART 6 has this function built in as a pre-set. You can play a
78 at 45, and it will adjust pitch/speed exactly

I recall that the older version, Millennium, also has this built in. It may
also compensate for the EQ change, but I don't recall exactly, and I no
longer have this installed on my computer.

The price for this is now $59, a bargain.

Contact them directly to verify that this program will do what you want.

I an an amateur audio recorder and editor, using heretofore Sony's EZAudio,
to put to CD tapes made of some solo clarinet stuff I've been doing in
church.  It occurred to me that somehow, I could rescue a wonderful
recording of the contralto Marion Anderson doing Schubert's "Ave Maria".
The problem is that EZAudio cannot compensate for the fact that my
turntable, a medium price Onkyo purchased after my previous, expensive
turntable died a death of old age and hardening rubber wheels, only has 45
and 331/3 speeds, and the Anderson recording is a 78!  Argh!

So, a Googling found Millers article on using other computer softwared to do
what I wanted to do.  He talked about using CoolEdit, which now costs $170
for Adobe.  Sony makes two versions of Sound Forge, a pro model for (also)
$170 and a somewhat cutdown version (probably for rank amateurs like me) for

My question to you is:  Do you know if the cheap version of SoundForge will
let me do what I want to do, a la the description in Millers' article,
namely resampling the original WAV file at a different rate and according
adjustment of the pitch?   OR, is it only the pro version of SoundForge, or
the Adobe CoolEdit that will allow that?

I have tried to deduce the answer to my questions from Sony's and Adobe's
web pages but they are not informative enough, and nobody I know does audio
editing/re-recording.  OK, I know I can send my record to quite a number of
places, at varying price levels, and get a CD from the record, but it would
be fun to do it myself.

If you can help me, I'd be most appreciative.
