I still have no opinion about the question of how Parkening recorded.

The ad cited clearly says (upper right hand corner): "...At half speed
listen to the tune slowly and exactly one octave lower so you can pick out
those fast licks." I see nothing in the ad to suggest that the machine can
slow the tempo without lowering the pitch. (And the toll free number has
only a recorded message!)
