"A Step Above Normal"

HOW TO CONVERT A YOU TUBE VIDEO TO MP3 & EMAIL TO ANOTHER PERSON

Do you need a song converted from You Tube to MP3?  Do you need to send that converted file to someone else?  We love the Media Human You Tube to MP3 Converter.  It's super simple to use! Attached you will find a detailed instruction sheet, with screenshots. 

You will be able to download these MP3's onto your devices and even change keys through our recommended key changer app, Anytune. (Apple Store).  We are currently researching key changer apps that work with Android devices. Check back soon! 

RECOMMENDED KEY & TEMPO CHANGER APP FOR IPHONE/IPAD WITH INSTRUCTIONS

Do you need to change a key or tempo to your instrumental/karaoke song, then I recommend the Anytune App from the Apple Store.  This works with iphone and ipad devices, not computers.  Read the detailed directions, screenshots included.  I even provide directions to send your modified song in mp4 format to PCG, another person or a recording studio.  Attached is the PDF document. 

We are currently researching Android for their best key changer apps.  Check back soon for more details.
