I am pleased to release StrechPlayer 0.501, a time-stretching,
pitch-shifting audio file player. It is powered by librubberband, and
also features an A/B repeat.

NEW IN THIS RELEASE
-------------------

* No longer clicks when changing speeds or pitch.
* Includes .desktop file and icon.
* .deb binary package is provided, including a
separate package with debugging symbols.

USING THE PROGRAM
-----------------

After stretchplayer is installed, there should be an [S] icon under
Multimedia or Sound. Or, you can run it from the command line like
this:

$ stretchplayer

The GUI is pretty self-explanatory, and if you hover over the controls
a tool-tip should appear. The GUI also has several keyboard
accelerators.

To play a file, click the file-open icon and select an audio file.
Stretchplayer can play anything that libsndfile supports (ogg, flac,
wav, etc.). However, it does /not/ support MP3 files at this time.

As the file plays, slide the horizontal slider left or right to change
the speed of the song. If you wish to transpose the audio, push one
of the + or - buttons.

INSTALLING THE PROGRAM
----------------------

You will need at least a 1200 MHz processor to use this program. It
also requires the following libraries:

* Qt >= 4.4 http://qt.nokia.com
* librubberband http://www.breakfastquay.com/rubberband/
* libsndfile http://www.mega-nerd.com/libsndfile/
* JACK http://jackaudio.org/
* CMake http://www.cmake.org/

If you are running Ubuntu Karmic or Ubuntu Jaunty, you can install the
.deb packages like this (from the command line):

$ sudo dpkg -i stretchplayer*_0.501_karmic_i386.deb

Anyone else will need to build from source. Please read the
INSTALL.txt file that comes with the taarball.

Peace,
Gabriel M. Beddingfield
