Anyone want to point me towards an application to get started?  From some initial exploration I understand this task might best be handled with phase vocoder tools.  plainpv from the PVC package, perhaps?  This doesn't have to be real-time or anything.  My intended use is transcription of jazz solos.

The CVS version of GLAME has some OK time scaling code, but you will have
to wait a while as its a bit tricky to build at the moment.

In the meantime you could use ardour, which has aceptable-but-not-
brilliant time scaling built in. Select the TimeFX icon, click on the
region of audio and drag it to the length you want.

I'l have to find a FAQ if you dont know how to record or load into ardour.
