Phenomenal App!

I have waiting my entire life for an app like this. I am 66 years old. I have played the piano/keyboards since I was 4 years old. I have learned more from this app about how music is structured in a very short time compared to how long I have played. I recently retired and I'm having the time of my life playing along with music I love. This app is wonderfully accurate in transcribing any piece of music into its underlying chord structure. It doesn't matter how complex the music or underlying chords. This app came along at the perfect time to bring my playing to the next level. I love this app! I would highly recommend it to any musician who can play by ear and knows most chords. Even if you don't know all the complex chords that can be played, you will quickly pick up how to play these chords with this app. Don't walk - run to the App Store and download this app. It is worth every penny.

Inconsistent beat markers in 3/4 time

Songs often switch between 1 beat per box to 2 beats per box and back again. As near as I can tell, this happens mainly with blues shuffles and/or 3/4 time. Examples: Everyone Loves an Outlaw’s I Saw Red and Rihanna’s Love on the Brain constantly switch between 3 beats over 3 boxes and 6 beats over 3 boxes. —— Keith Urban’s Blue Aint Your Color starts out as 6 beats over 3 boxes, switches to 3 beats over 3 boxes on line 3, then back to 6 beats per 3 boxes on line 5. —- Chris Stapelton’s Tennessee Whiskey and Ally Venable’s Broken and Blue consistently show 3 beats per 3 boxes until near the end. In Broken and Blue, a few of the last measures show 9 beats over 3 boxes. —- Please come home for Christmas by the Eagles switches up beat boxes and pacing a lot. And Darling Lorraine by The Knockouts seems way off. —- The inconsistent display switching back and forth within a single song, sometimes just for a single measure, is very distracting.
———————- Another bug: sometimes the little wiper that slides across the beats disappears for one or more measures. Personally, I prefer the view without the wiper and would like an option to permanently turn it off. But either way, coming and going during a song is distracting.

Developer Response ,

Hello. Thank you very much for the detailed feedback. The beat tracking algorithm can have some trouble on the 3/4 or 6/8 songs indeed. But we will keep updating our models continuously along with the following updates. Yes, we can consider removing the yellow cursor if you think it's useless and distracting.

Best music app I’ve ever purchased for my iPad

As an amateur who loves to play music, I have gotten fairly good at figuring out melodies, but chords have been very difficult for me to figure out. This is the app that I’ve always been waiting for! It’s amazingly accurate and I really love that it gives you chords for different instruments (keyboard, guitar, bass, etc.).

The other major feature that I absolutely love and use is the un-mix feature that breaks up a song into stems, so you can remove vocals, or remove the music and just hear vocals, etc. Absolutely amazing.

Also, I want to thank the developers for offering a lifetime license. I HATE subscription models and am always willing to pay a fair price up-front that doesn’t require a subscription, and I believe this app is definitely fairly priced.

Lastly, some input about the lyrics feature. Unfortunately, this one is very hit and miss (mostly miss). I wish there was a way to edit the lyrics so that I can have the correct lyrics in the PDF file. Correct lyrics are so easy to find on the internet nowadays, and I would just prefer to be able to enter them manually.

Can’t wait to see what else is in store for this app!
