variable speed settings

thanks for extending VSP to 3.0!
Now, please allow tuning the speed between 2.0x and 3.0x. Right now, we have fine tuning up to
2x, then 1 custom. Please allow multiple custom speeds, or spread the presets from 1x to instead of
1 to 2x. (or, if you must, a keyboard entry)
Thanks again for awesomeness!

variable speed playback, vsp

I find that I choose a VSP setting on a per podcast basis. It would be nice if this could be configured
per podcast. Not essential, but another step toward DC awesomeness!

Hi,
I hope this one isn't too far off as it would be great to have multiple custom speeds.
Even moving the edit custom speed settings to a more accessible location would be great as I tend to change speeds often depending on the quality of the podcast.
I should also say that I think that this is the best pod catcher I have used and the >2x playback is one of the most important features for me.
Thanks again,
John

I've got that on the todo list - http://mantis.snoggdoggler.com/view.php?id=915

I will probably end up just adding a few more choice to the custom speed.

Thanks for the feedback, glad you're liking the app.

adding support for this

I see this keeps getting pushed out. Please give us a little something if the grand plan
is too much work. Three simple possibilities:
- one more custom speed
or
- interpolate the menu speeds between the configured min and max speeds
or
- long press somewhere offers a slider or number box to change speeds.

thanks,
tom

Per Podcast

I'd like to reiterate tedaly's earlier request to be able to configure each feed with a custom speed. That would stop a lot of fiddling around while driving.

Agree, I bumped this up in the schedule.

I originally had postponed it because of some technical hurdles in the way of doing this, but they're gone now, so it shouldn't be too much trouble.

Thanks for the feedback.

Reiteration #4? :-)

Let me preface with: DoggCatcher is my absolute favorite piece of software; I use it every day for multiple hours, and I love it.

The interface is wonderful and I have almost no complaints, but I would LOVE to be able to switch between multiple speeds from 2x to 3x.

In http://www.doggcatcher.com/node/1715 someone suggested having a custom speed for each feed- That would solve the problem for me as well, but either one would be GREAT!

Thank you so much for all your hard work and for making the best app I've ever used. It has, in no uncertain terms, changed my life. I'm a more informed and aware person and my ability to listen to an hour-long news show in 20 minutes is one of the most important reasons.

Peace,
~Dan

We'll probably be adding this not too far off. We'll soon be rolling out variable speed to more devices. Once that is all done and we've worked out the kinks, we'll be ready to get variable speed better integrated into the app.

Thanks for posting.

different rewinded portion playback speed?

Love your fantastic app Eric, thanks bud. Now would it be possible to have a different rewinded portion custom speed option. I play audio at 2-3x speed but sometimes I need to replay a word or sentence but to understand it I must first change the playback speed to 1-2x, rewind then change speed to fast after the rewinded portion. What if during playback when you hit the rewind button the portion of the rewinded audio is played back at a different user-defined speed then the current speed setting? Also I read you're considering a speed adjustment slider which would also make my dreams come true. Thank you

Is there any progress on supporting multiple custom speeds?

Any progress updates on this would be great. I have been waiting years for this feature :-)
Thanks,
John

The ability to build a custom list of variable speeds is still on Eric's to do list http://mantis.doggcatcher.com/view.php?id=915
