I’ve spent countless hours joyfully singing with this app. I’ve also been able to set keys that fit my voice like a glove. This used to be a very awkward process with a pianist, because finding the perfect key can be very time consuming. Well, it is for me. I can also email a set list and charts for upcoming gigs. This makes life so much easier. It is truly a bargain. I’ve saved hundred of dollars in rehearsal time because of this app. I recommend it to all my singer friends. Thank you!
They just throw you in there, without knowing anything. I don’t know how to do anything, and right now it looks like all it is for is jazz improvising which was not what I was looking for. Would not recommend
I have been using this app for years now and I do love it. I think there’s room for a few vital adjustments tho... one in particular that I would really like to see fixed. When a song is transposed and I want to edit chord changes, as soon as it goes into edit mode, it shows the chords in the original key the song was inputted, rather than the key I’m currently working with. This can be very frustrating in the moment for trying to make quick adjustments as I have to constantly transpose in my head to make edits. It would be nice if the edit mode always stayed in whatever key the current setting is.
Advertises you can imports songs and playlists but doesn’t tell but only from the inside forums which you also have to buy. It’s a joke! Don’t waste your money. Buyer remorse and wasted a bunch of my time I could have been practicing
I can’t give it a zero. Totally useless!
This great app. Will be over the top forever with one More BIG FEATURE; Pitch control This will enable the user to tune the app song to a piano Or guitar Can it be done? Rex Great thanks
Whether you’re a serious amateur musician, semi-pro, or seasoned pro, this is a must-have app for practicing and gigging. And if you’re a jazz musician, get this NOW! The only thing missing will be the heads, but you can download all the changes from the Real Book and practice to your heart’s content. Build set lists and take it to gigs, so long as you know the heads.
Pretty useless for rock music. Store won’t refund money so I am out 12 bucks for something I won’t use.
I thought I’d be able to plug in my guitar using iRig and play along. You have to use GarageBand to do that, and then you can’t see the chord charts. Useless for me.
Absolutely love this app! I can download thousands of scores, edit it, create it, change the key and the tempo,... It’s the aid to learning songs!
