I am begging you guys, please let us have the old keyboard layout back. Or at least an option to have it. I had mastered a workflow to quickly make charts on the fly. The most frustrating part is having to hit two buttons to get the "repeat last measure" symbol. Still rating high because I love the app. But please guys, why fix what wasn't broken
I wrote to the support team more than a week ago and still no response from them. Apparently support services are an issue here. You would think by sending an email they would get back to you after 7 days. For now I’ll give 3 stars until the matter is resolved.
You can’t even reset your password. It sends you a link to reset your password that requires your password. Bizarre. No wonder I stopped using it a while back. I thought they might have made it easier to use. Nope….can’t even get started.
Literally a must have for any jazz musician and even pop musicians. Everyone at my university uses it.
iRealpro I love it. From beginner to a pro in a week.The online forums and the YouTube videos really help. I’ll be making a video 2023 as a teaching resource. The programs and the styles work great to get a understanding of how progressions fit with tempo in a particular style. Placement of notes usage of Hutton helps to control the flow and the notation used. Being able to transfer this to a midi capable program is also amazing. Using this as a tool for musical growth the functional piano/guitar/uke setting make it possible to see chords and how to play them as well as see the mode associated with the chord chosen. From the choices out there this is The Best tool For any musician that writes and practices daily. Let’s all look forward to updates, new styles of songs, and possible new music to be written by you! Wish there was a referral system for users to suggest… Wish the program was updated with more styles at relatively i expense costs for packages Wish the program allow user collaboration Wish the ideas that are awesome in the forum actually happen (like adding outro buttons/ highlight beat count inside repeat measure…. By far best program out there!!
A great tool for learning changes.!
One of the greatest “tools” for gigging and getting vocals and tunes lined up for gigs and performances… great practice tool too … just super just wish I could find a copy for my old iPad replacement… someone stole my old iPad and when I bought a refurbished older one APPLE wouldn’t let me get a copy for it so I’m using my iPhone… but they should make older versions of the apps available 😳
The app is fine but may bug out on you. Often it insists that I have the bars arranged incorrectly even when I have them in the proper format, which is irritating when I’m trying to get a certain harmonic rhythm. Aside from this the language the app uses for displaying chords is not very user friendly. I try to understand what info they provide but I’m still yet to understand how I would go about getting certain voicings like augmented 6th and chords without the 5th. But the app is good for getting rough ideas, practicing, and familiarizing yourself with different and common styles of music.
Every time I open the app it immediately closes back out
An amazing tool to even help beginners. I hope to fully realize it’s capabilities someday
