WHAT IS "VOCALIZE IT"?
It's an app created with "lo studio del canto di Simone Moscato" to help who wants to exercise their voice without the need to have or know how to play an instrument.
WHO NEEDS IT?
A so dynamic and easy to use tool is designed for both singing students and teachers, who can set up the exercises for their students to study at home; but also for those who, amateurs and professionals, need to warm up the voice before a performance or study in any place and at any time, thanks to the possibilities offered by a versatile device such as your smartphone.
HOW IT WORKS?
Its simple and intuitive interface lets you create vocal sequences from scratch or modify the standard ones provided.
"Vocalize it!" is powered by an intuitive visual editor to help you inserting notes and rests, and an handy preview to listen to your composition at any time.
The exercises thus created (or modified) may be further customized by setting the initial tone, speed, and configuring the buttons to raise or lower the pitch of the sequence during execution.
DO I NEED TO HAVE KNOWLEDGE OF A MUSICAL INSTRUMENT TO USE IT?
Absolutely not, the application acts as a tool to help you improve singing skills, even if you only have a good ear but little technical knowledge of musical instruments.
CAN I WRITE DOWN COMMENTS OR IDEAS?
Each sequence can have annotations, teaching notes or whatever else is deemed necessary in order to optimize the study. You can also assign them a name for easier identification and set your preferred sequences as "favorite", to make them appear highlighted in the main list.
Happy singing everyone!
We solved a nasty bug about ascending/descending repetitions, introduced with iOS 11 (thanks Robert).

Just stumbled on this. There are quite a few of these out there out but nothing that fit my needs exactly. This is simple, but perfect. Customizable scales, playlist option, etc. The only other add I’d make is the option to have the metronome clink along with the exercise. Nice work.
The only improvement I’d like to see is to have it keep playing after the phone screen locks like other music apps. As it is now, I have to stop, unlock the phone, then the scales resume.
Developer Response ,
Hi AutomaticEight, thanks for the very nice review.
I like the metronome idea, I'm planning to add a switch, somewhere in the interface, to enable or disable it during the playback.
About the background music when the phone is locked, it's a problem: the app wasn't build with this in mind and adapting it to support this feature is showing great issues with memory usage and stability. I'm adding it to to-do list, and I'll do my best to implement it, but I (still) can't promise anything, for now.
This app is absolutely fantastic!
I have been studying voice for a while now, picking up exercises from various books by vocal coaches such as Seth Riggs, Gary Catona, & Jaime Vendera, and it’s really nice to be able to program those specific exercises into an app like this.
Any chance we could see the following in a future update?
- since the app can’t run with the screen off, is there a way to prevent it from going black?
- make the repeat function for the whole exercise, not just one note
- decrease the time between exercise intervals
All in all, thank you for making an excellent app for us that vocalize on a regular basis.
Keep it up!
FANTASTIC! Great improvement!!!
Great warm-up app!!! Now the best one I have!!!
I have lots of warm-up apps, but after the recent update, this one is by far the best.
I can customize or create any warmup, and set a playlist to auto play.
So o can literally take any idea of a warmup from another app and customize it here. Slow it down, speed it up, change the range. So great! Thanks for listening to your customers!!!
I'm very impressed!!
After my review, the development team contacted me and asked about specifics. They have implemented all the features that I had said I would have wanted to make this app amazing!
Old review before they fixed all this stuff:
While this seems like a great app for customizing and creating vocal warm ups, there seems to be no way to automate the scale to play more than once.
There's no play button to play playlists.
I can't do a vocal warmup when I'm driving if I have to press two buttons between each 5 second scale. Am I missing something?
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
