GarageBand is powerful audio recording and editing software that comes as a part of Mac OS X's iLife software suite. With a few simple steps, you can slow down music in this program. It is possible to change both the tempo of a song you are creating using the software's many virtual instruments, or slow down the playback speed of a music file.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Open the GarageBand project file or MP3 you want to slow down.

  2. 2

    Select "Project" from the list of options in the blue box at the bottom of the screen.

  3. 3

    Click the number under "Tempo" and scroll to your desired tempo.

  4. 4

    Play back the song to hear the effects of a tempo change.
