Ratings and Reviews
Useful. Not perfect, but improving.
The developer keeps improving this app, and I have found it quite useful. If you’re an aspiring musician, it’s worth the very reasonable price for the parts that work well. It cannot always deliver on getting chords right, particularly on more complex songs (although I have not tested this on the most recent version yet). The best thing about Capo is the ability to slow down the tempo while keeping it in the same key, or pitching the song up or down while keeping the same tempo. You can also mute out certain ranges of sound so that you can play along without doubling the part. It does these things very well.

Thank you so much for this insightful review of Capo. You're right — Capo doesn't always get the chords correct. Obviously, our goal is to get as many chords correct as possible. But for the ones it doesn’t, we have made it simple for users to correct the missed detections. All the changes you make to a song’s chords are stored in the Project as you go, so your modifications will remain intact the next time you return to work on a song. We have a blog post written by the developer of the app that talks about Capo's chord intelligence in greater detail if you're interested. You can find it here — http://bit.ly/2eBIpzp —
WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN ALL MY LIFE?!?!?!?
I’m a retired music educator that now spends his idle time transcribing music. I have struggled to isolate instruments, especially the bass parts. My system would always just produce distortion. Well, then I found a recommendation on Facebook’s NO TREBLE page from a fellow Mac user who swore by CAPO. How could I refuse THAT recommendation?? So I tried it and O.M.G. - I was amazed - BLOWN THE HELL AWAY when I could isolate “so cleanly” the bass line!!!! I don’t honestly know if I’ll ever step outside my house again!!! I’m having a blast “cleaning up” what I previously THOUGHT were spot-on transcriptions. <smh> I cannot believe what I missed and what CAPO has helped me discover.
I’ll be honest, I didn’t buy it for pitch or tempo changes or chord markings or any of the other “marketed” components. I just wanted ISOLATION and, by God, I got it.
I am also happy I not only have it on my iMac (my primary instrument for transcribing), but on my iOS devices. I found that flipping between CAPO and my music processing software was sometimes cumbersome. So having it on my device I can accomplish things a tad faster and with more accuracy listening through my earbuds. (FWIW)
If you are reading this far - stop and go buy the darn product!! It’s freakin’ awesome.

Wow...what a glowing review. We love your enthusiasm! Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience with Capo 3 and Capo touch with our potential customers. Much appreciated.
FINALLY! A MUSIC APP THAT TRULY EXCEEDS EXPECTATIONS!
WHATEVER YOUR UNSKILLED LEVEL MIGHT BE, this version of Capo is a critical tool for the serious or aspiring-to-be-serious musician. I find learning songs, particularly flourishes, solo riffs, and intros, is much faster due to the tablature capabilities. Find the region you want to master, listen for your problem tone/note, click on it and the note displays as a Tab below. Combined with so many extra features, this is an App free of the hype and hidden "buy the advanced version" nonsense. Customer service is excellent -- I emailed their support for clarification of keystrokes (turns out it was operator error--duh). They answered very quickly and provided relevant info and links for even more resources. Wow.
