Hm. I also thought about that. Maybe I should just stick with this.

[BTW: Is mpm the unit abbreviation used in english? What does it stand for?]

It definitely is. I use it all the time. Dance practising was the main
reason for me to buy the archos, because we practise in many different
rooms and I always wanted to have all my dance music (and that of my
dance club :-) with me.

The pitch function works equally well as the pitch function of our CD
players. You can adjust the speed from 50% to 200% (of course much more
than you will ever need). Just keep "on" pressed and adjust the speed
with "up" and "down". I am using Rockbox 1.4. Of course the frequency of
the music changes as you change the speed, but this is not different to
our CD players.
