Ratings and Reviews
My Favorite Music App!
UPDATE: Still my favorite music practice app, but now even better!!! I just discovered it has a "Space Invaders" shooter game that yses intonation as the controller to shoot notes!! Makes sight reading practice so much fun! And playing notes in tune outside of a melodic context is sharpening my ears. This app is so wonderful. I use it several times a day.
I use this app every day while I practice violin. I love it! I love the scales practice, I love the metronome, and I love getting a visual history of my intonation.
Every day I record my sections of my pieces as I practice them. Music Wrench records the audio and records a color coded visual display that tells me how in tune or out of tune each note is.
I actually turn my back to my iPad while I play with Music Wrench running. Then I stop and self evaluate. I think about which notes were flat, which were sharp. and which were in tune. After I self evaluate, I turn around and look at Music Wrench to see how accurate I was. Then I listen to the recording and watch the color coded display as I listen. This has helped my intonation so much! I never practice without it!
Great for vibrato too
This is a surprisingly useful app. Professional musician and teacher.
In the practice mode you can look at width of vibrato and constancy, (yes, keeping 3 down while vibrating 4 visibly helps!) you can see accidental squeaks from bow or bow/finger timing, I suspect there are many more uses than checking intonation.
I wish it worked for the viola C string -it currently does not. It would be nice to have at least the single-line intonation feedback available for those 7 too-low notes.
This has become a go-to app for me since it gives continuous intonation feedback in the context of scales, tonality exercises, and even some musical pieces. Given it meets my needs so well and I use it every practice session it deserves 5 stars, but I sure wish it were possible to upload musicXML. Given the limited repertoire, it seems like a demo until you really start to use it. The UI is a bit odd, but you get used to it and it works.
