Did you know music sounds much more awesome and epic when you slow it down and elongate every instrument, note and vocal? Yeah you already do. This app turns all your music into that Justin Bieber song that was slowed down 800x (okay this app only slows down songs 2-16x). But still.

What's it do?

Ostensibly, it's a music player but the magic of Sound Epic is that it customizes your music library into this magical, hypnotic and almost natural song. Their tagline is that a 3 minute pop song is transformed into an hour long electronic symphony masterpiece. And that's exactly it, you feel enveloped by soul squeezing sounds. I just listened to the Chili Peppers slowed down by 8 times and the whole song warped me into this dream-like, euphoric state straight ouf of Gondry's brain.

Why do we like it?

I cannot stress this enough. You think you know a song, you listened to it thousands of time already but hearing it at a slowed down speed? It opens your brain up. It's like turning yourself onto drugs and getting high for the first time, the whole world is different, what used to be just normal is now awesome and what was already awesome is psychedelically tectonic plate shifting. The app is free too, so there's absolutely no excuse to not try Sound Epic. It's not for everyday use but this app is magic. You can record your own music too.

I would like to make a suggestion to Apple.

Dear Apple, I understand that every time you change the Terms & Conditions for iTunes, you have to make us go through it and accept it again.

But we all know nobody will read it. But you're making me lie when I click the button "accept", since I'll neeeeeeever read it (even though I am aware of the risks of becoming a subject in the Human CentiPad experiment).

Could you please add another button called "WHATEVER"?

So every time I see the Terms & Conditions, I can just click "whatever". It would be the same as "accept", but it would make me feel better, because "whatever" is exactly what I feel like when I see your legal stuff.

Thanks.
