Software to change a song's pitch, tempo, & remove the vocals

Here's a great tool I've recently started using. I previously used audacity to make minor edits to worship songs for home practice (e.g. for key changes), but its rather troublesome to import files into the program. However, I stumbled across 'Karafun' while searching for alternative software, and its been really useful as it allows you to very quickly
  1. Change the pitch of a song: to practice in a different key.
  2. Adjust the song's tempo: helps to slow the song down to figure out fast notes.
  3. Remove vocals: to catch the instruments.
Although the software is primarily for karaoke, it works just as well for rehearsing at home. Best of all, its freeware, and the program loads quickly. Download it here.

Btw, this isn't a paid ad or anything; this site is not run for money! I recommend stuff because I sincerely think it'd help, especially if its free stuff on the web.

Also check out Amazing Slow Downer: http://www.ronimusic.com/

I've been using the Mac version for years, and works like a charm.

Kenny, are there any metronome softwares that you recommend? I know there are lots of free metronome/drum machine software in the net but none of them are really as good as the shareware programs.

Are there any softwares that have features like Desktop Metronome (tap tempo, auto, tuplet, meter, etc) but free?
