Speed up music

I've been listening to a song on Windows Media player on high speed (Ctrl+Shift+G).

Is there any way to permanently 'stick' the song on high speed, so when I transfer it to my MP3 player, it'll stay that way?


Hi there,

Yes you can. Download a free program called Audacity from here.

Once installed, open the MP3 you want to change, and then Edit -> Select -> All...

Here's the fun part, now go to Effects -> Change Speed OR Change Tempo... suggest you preview both and have a play about to see which effect suits you the best.

Hope this helps,
