Learn your favorite songs without tabs or sheet music.
Whether you play for the world or yourself, all musicians need a good ear for harmony, melody, and rhythm. Using the songs in your music collection, Capo guesses the beats, chords, and key of songs to help you break them down to their individual parts. Capo’s unique technology helps you to learn your favorites quickly as you improve your ear along the way.
Capo is simple and yet so, so good, even the professionals use it:
“Capo is AMAZING!!! Very clutch. Especially when parts are kinda tough in the mix that I can’t make out easily. With other apps you lose quality, this still sounds correct.”
- Omar Edwards: Keyboardist/Music Director for Jay-Z, Rihanna, Kanye West, Eminem, and more
“When I sat down and started using Capo for the first time, I was amazed at how big a punch this little app packs! It's intuitive, convenient, and high-quality.”
- Rebecca Lovell: Lead Vocals, Electric Guitar, Acoustic Guitar, Mandolin, Piano for Larkin Poe

*** HEAR THE SONG ***
Slow everything down, scrub to hear specific notes, and easily create regions that loop as you learn to play the tricky parts. Use Capo’s tools to isolate specific instruments and even vocals to learn any part of a song. With a couple simple switches, you can focus on the piano or eliminate everything to practice the guitar solo.
*** BREAK IT DOWN ***
Capo automatically guesses the beats, chords, and key of songs to get you started. Change, add, or remove the detected chords easily with a few taps as you identify alternate chords and voicings.
*** PAUSE THE SESSION ***
Capo saves each song as a project, including the loop regions you set, chord changes, and even the playback position. Learn songs at your own pace and revisit them on any device thanks to iCloud sync for your projects.

Ratings and Reviews
Great update. Forget my last comment if ever you read it, I just hadn’t expored all the new features. Thx
P.S. My computer is set in french language and the word « Key » in your app is translated to « touche » which means like « computer key », not the actual key of a song. The right word would be « clé ».
This is a TRIAL app - 60 second demo only
If you really find the app useful, be ready to pay $40/year. I bought Capo 2 eight years ago for $56 and I still use it. It's a shame that's now the annual fee (for Canadians). I'll stick with Capo 2.
Developer Response ,
The trial mode is limited to 60 seconds of noise-free playback for each project that you create, but that timer is reset each time a project is opened. You can evaluate Capo for as long as you like in this mode, and you are also free to explore its chord detection and editing features with no limitations at all.
Let me begin by saying that I really wanted like this application. I’ve been playing guitar for many years now and this type of program really piqued my interest but, I feel it didn’t live up to the hype or the price. Often times with moderately difficult songs it would either miss several chord changes, get the chords completely wrong or list the chords in the wrong locations in the song (roughly 2 bars later than the actual chord). Even with songs that only had a vocal and a guitar these issues were clear to see and, unfortunately, it wasn’t simply marking, for example, C# where it should have been C#m; it was more along the lines of marking a C# where it should have been an Em7.
I can’t give this application the rating I really wanted it to earn but I will be keeping my eye on it in hopes of future improvements!
