Just love the old standards and there are 1350 of them with other jazz tunes. Great to improvise along with chord progressions and bass.
Great automatic backing track software similar to Band In A Box without the three hundred dollar price tag. Great features allow control of most musical variables: key, tempo, and backup band instruments. Good sound for practicing along with, possibly good enough for demo’s or live karaoke performance. Wonderful software that has been around a decade or so, with plenty of time to work out any glitches a long time ago. The program provides animated chord charts that follow the beat, but does not provide a melody line in musical notation. I have found sheet music elsewhere online, and the keys usually match the original keys in the written out songs. A perfect practice accompanist for solo instruments. The huge library of tunes online that anyone can download into the software is amazing. The most useful musical app of all time.
Love the App. My husband and a bunch of other “seniors” formed a oldies rock and roll band. My husband downloaded the his app and used their music plus added some of his old.. they updated it he app and his old, senior, iPad could not use the updated version. He only had a week to go before their first big paying job!! I contacted IReel Pro and within hours Warren contacted us and told my husband how to log back on with the new version. Everything worked and he was able to play his gig with his music. Thank you Warren!!!
I used this app to practicing for solos and learning improv. If you have the money this is the app to get. Amazing for practicing. A defiantly a 5 star app. Jazz is the best!!!
This tool is a great way to practice, and play the tune in any key. (As a keyboardist, I turn down the keyboard part and practce along from my fake book charts.) I don’t find the editing interface super intuitive, but there is online documentation and their support responds quickly to questions. The jazz list of tunes is pretty comprehensive. I wish there were more vetted rock tunes. (People post their own titles in the forums, but it is “caveat emptor”: some people who post don’t seem to know you can specify a minor key, or have screwy chords. Most recent versions let you preview before you download a song, but older version that runs on older iOS does not. (And that is the helpful tidbit I got from their support staff.) Overall, well worth the investment.
Unwavering product support. Five stars for the customer support team. A lot of work has gone into making this the pinnacle of what is available at this time. It’s an excellent investment. I have it for both android and Apple products. It’s that good. I’m a bona fide user. I also bought it to put on my wife’s devices.
The app does what i need it to do and the after purchase support is great.
This is an incredible app. I use it ~3 times a week plus during jam sessions. It is easy to use, and easy to edit charts. One of the big benefits is that it works with split screen so I can play tunes on other apps and use the iReal Pro charts at the same time. The developer is very helpful too and I appreciate all the assistance provided.
As stated in the title, the optional chord charts display as either a left-handed guitarist or just plain backwards. Would be a great feature to have access to if it were displaying properly.(or at least giving the consumer an option to change it) Thank you! I’ll buy the blues package if the developers fix this problem.
Very attentive help, even on a holiday! Very impressed! Love this app! Gig w it regularly.
