Hi David:

  I use Snd for transcribing difficult solos for my students. I
recommend Audacity to them (because they're all using Windows) and
they've responded very favorably to it too. The price is right, try 'em
both. :)

  Btw, I use either an SBLive or an M-Audio card with Snd, I've never
had problems with the time-stretching (which is really what you want
instead of pitch-shifting).
