Phenomenal App!

I have waiting my entire life for an app like this. I am 66 years old. I have played the piano/keyboards since I was 4 years old. I have learned more from this app about how music is structured in a very short time compared to how long I have played. I recently retired and I'm having the time of my life playing along with music I love. This app is wonderfully accurate in transcribing any piece of music into its underlying chord structure. It doesn't matter how complex the music or underlying chords. This app came along at the perfect time to bring my playing to the next level. I love this app! I would highly recommend it to any musician who can play by ear and knows most chords. Even if you don't know all the complex chords that can be played, you will quickly pick up how to play these chords with this app. Don't walk - run to the App Store and download this app. It is worth every penny.

DeplorableHAHAHA ,


Nothing short of Phenomenal!!!! Helps me catalog all my original songs I have written & recorded because I can’t remember them. Also when I perform live I can just put my earphone in and play along so I can remember my songs and not get embarrassed when I can’t remember them.😃
They’ve added lyric recognition awesome and also backing instruments awesome but it is having some started jumping around the screen with the backing tracks then froze and shut down when recognizing my lyrics…yeah my lyrics are that a great..LOL.

Sill a great app just have to work out the kinks. No other company that I know of has this kind of app. Not any manufacturer of recording equipment or software that I know of been begging companies for the for years. This app is a songwriter’s dream come true.

Great core functionality, weak workflow

The basic chord recognition aspect of this is astonishingly good. It doesn’t always nail the exact guitar chord shape, but that would be a lot to ask. But otherwise the quality is pretty amazing.

The downside is the input and output workflow. Loading media can be a tedious process of working down through directories or playlists, starting from the very top of the hierarchy every time. If I want to look at a bunch of related files, I wish it would open up at the last place I looked rather than having to start over. But that’s a small thing; not many people have the same use case as me. What I really wish, though, was that I could have a plain text output format, perhaps chord names separated by tabs instead of HTML, which I have extract the chord data from by hand.

All that said, this is a pretty great piece of software and I recommend it highly for most people.
