For old subject:

Tim, have you tried to register to Track? Any problem, please tell me
privately, and we will try to solve it. Asking, because ISTR a post
about about some restrictions.

New subject:

The reason for the move:

The utility "soundstretch" is what I use to test new versions of
SoundTouch. I process a .wav file, converted from .flac just for this,
as the test for a new update in the book:

soundstretch \
  ~/sshfs/blfs/01_-_Die_Kunst_der_Fuge_BWV_1080_-_Contrapunctus_1.wav \
  /tmp/destinationfile.wav -tempo=-25.3 -pitch=3.5

and find it very useful.

During a meeting, some two years ago, I needed to watch an annoying .ppt
presentation with audio sounding like a cartoon. Soundstretch would have
saved the trouble.

Thus, I think that soundstretch is at least as useful as libSoundTouch.
