What a great app!!!

This app was such a find for me. I now use it every day during my practice. It allows me to hear a new song before I set our to learn it. It also allows me to make edits to songs if I need to. I can create new songs using the handy editor.

The author of this app is a pleasure to communicate with and is very responsive in answering any questions.

This app is a must have for those learning to play the bagpipes.

Initial Impressions

You should……no, NEED to be proud of yourself! Been longing for this app to be on the Mac desktop. So far it is everything I hoped for. Have not tried to import other bww formatted songs yet. I can’t thank you enough for doing this. Comes at a very good time in my learning. You deserve much success with this.
