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

(

Slow down playback, 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 and make transcription easier.

Capo automatically detects chords, beats, and the 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. Use Capo's structure song view to edit Capo's beat grid for songs with changing, or uncommon time signatures.

With an active subscription, Capo saves the loop regions you set, chord changes, and even the playback position into Projects. Learn songs at your own pace and revisit them on all your devices using iCloud.

Capo: Ein unverzichtbares Tool für Musiker

Ich nutze Capo schon seit einigen Jahren und es ist mir eine unverzichtbare Hilfe beim üben von Musik geworden. Drei Funktionen schötze ich besonders;

1. Ich kann die Wiedergabe-Geschwindigkeit von Musik an meine Lernfortschritte anpassen und die Tonhöhe bleibt erhalten.
2. Ich kann die Tonhöhe an meine Stimmlage anpassen und mitsingen, ohne dass die Geschwindigkeit sich verändert.
3. Ich kann Musikstücke in einzelne Bestandteile zerlegen und gezielt üben und dabei nur bestimmte Bereiche wiederholen.

Sehr gut um Lieder zu analysieren und zu üben

Ich nutze Capo um bestimmte Riffs eines Liedes oder ganze Lieder zu lernen und zu üben. Ich kann einen Riff markieren und wiederholen lassen. Schnelle Riffs höre und übe ich mit Capo erst langsam, ohne Tonhöhenänderung. Außerdem erkennt Capo die Geschwindigkeit und Tonart des Liedes und die Akkorde.

Außerdem haben Sie einen ausgezeichneten Support der schnell antwortet! Thanks Shelley ;)


Developer Response ,

Thank you for taking the time to write this review! :)

Lohnt sich in jedem Fall!

Um es vorweg zu sagen, die Akkorderkennung ist tatsächlich eine Königsdisziplin und Capo kann keine Wunder vollbringen.

Aaaaber: Wer kleine Abschnitte heraushören möchte, bestimmte Rhythmen üben muss und dabei sinnvollerweise das Tempo verringert (Üben _immer_ langsam!), der ist mit Capo sehr gut bedient! Die Takte erkennt Capo sehr gut, so dass sich im Handumdrehen Loops aus bestimmten Bereichen erstellen, das geht tatsächlich sekundenschnell. Die Transposition nutze ich nicht, sie funktioniert aber sehr gut.

Wenn ich noch etwas verbessern könnte, dann folgende Punkte:
- Das Tempo variabler verändern (oder geht das auch jetzt schon? Habe es nirgendwo entdeckt...was nichts heißen soll...)
- Ein Lautstärkeregler wäre super. Über externe Soundkarten kann man ansonsten immer wieder den Lautstärkeschock erleiden.

Ansonsten: Klare Empfehlung!
