Transcribe+ harnesses the power of a tempo slowdown and pitch-shifting technology, along with AI-driven vocal, drum, bass, and instrumental isolation. This fusion creates an unparalleled learning experience for those learning music by ear. Transcribe+ is a beautifully designed, intuitive app that allows you to focus on specific parts of the music you're studying.

Adjust speed and pitch effortlessly with simple swipe gestures. Tap the waveform to pause the track, then drag to listen at your chosen pace, even one note at a time! Mark song structures or add personal notes using customizable flags on the waveform. Practice specific sections repeatedly by defining looped areas.

Key Features:

Speed adjustable from 0.25x to 2x without affecting pitch.
Easy pitch modification by ±12 semitones.
Fine-tune pitch adjustment slider with 0.01 semitone increments.
Interactive waveform interface for real-time scrubbing and listening note by note.
Consolidate and practice loops in a single location with Loop View.
Smart Loops can automatically increase speed or shift pitch with each loop.
Load videos for enhanced visual understanding.
Intuitive EQ toolbar for refined frequency adjustment and additional isolation possibilities.
Mark and annotate waveforms for efficient review.
BPM is automatically detected on most tracks.
AI Vocal Removal & Stems Separation:

Remove or isolate vocals, bass, drums, or instrumentals on ANY track (without DRM). Use this feature to focus on the instruments you're interested in, or create a play-along track. Export any combinations of stems and remix them as you like!

Loop View with “Smart Loops”:

View all your loops in the loop view. Simply tap the loop icon to start or stop a loop. You can set parameters for a metronome count-in before each loop or auto-increase speed or shift pitch with each repetition.

EQ ToolBar, Channel Mixer, and Fine Tuning Slider:

Further isolate or enhance the part you're listening to with the EQ toolbar or the Stereo Channel mixer. You can also finely adjust the overall pitch of the track in increments of 1 cent.

Apple Music Support:

Transcribe+ integrates with Apple Music, letting you adjust the tempo and add flags and loops to any song in your Apple Music library. Please note, due to DRM music streaming limitations, some features are unavailable on Apple Music tracks.

iCloud Sync:

All of your flags, loops, and settings for each track you load are automatically saved to iCloud. These settings also sync automatically across all your devices.

Additional Features:

● Split tracks into 2 or 4 stems (vocals, bass, drums, instrumentals).
● Easily export loops or entire tracks.
● Split-screen multitasking for efficient iPad use.
● 11 attractive themes with elegant icons.
● Keyboard shortcuts compatible with foot pedals for easier control during practice.

Amazing teaching tool

THANK YOU. I’m working with a youth theater group for an upcoming musical, and this app has made it SO much easier to teach vocals. The speed and pitch controls are great, of course; but the quality of the vocal isolation, while not 100% perfect (nothing is), is easily the best I’ve seen in an iOS app. I’m able to toggle between just instruments, just voices, and both *while the song is playing,* which is incredibly helpful for the kids to hear exactly what they should be singing/listening for. As other competent reviewers have mentioned, some kind of in-app file management system, like folders or playlists, would be the icing on the cake. It’s crashed on me a couple of times when downloading songs, but moving the tracks out of the cloud and onto my iPad solved that. I’d also like to see a little deeper zoom in, more accuracy in moving markers (it jumps a little every time you release), and the ability to turn off/on the waveform “record spin” sound when you scrub. But those are minor nice-to-haves in an app that is incredibly useful as it stands. Bravo. If you’re too cheap to pay $15 to support this kind of advanced audio trickery, I don’t know what to say.

So far so good but...

I have been using this app on my iPhone to isolate the rhythm, drums and or bass guitar so that I can see where sheet music and tabs are off by a note or two which is great. If you are looking to use this on your iPhone or iPad it is a fantastic app and boggles my mind as to how the program was designed to operate on a phone. I would recommend for those purposes.

But I thought for certain I had downloaded the same app on my windows 10 pc? Is that even possible? or has some other company used the same name in the Microsoft store and now I'm stuck with that other app?

I would just like to know if this program which works for what I need on my iOS iPhone, is available on a windows OS because it is a lot easier on the eyes and ears to be able to do the same on a much more powerful machine with bigger screen and a superior sound system. If not, are you considering development for the windows OS? And if yes to either would I need to purchase twice? Thanks in advance for reading my jumbled review/ inquiry and I look forward to hearing from you.

Great tool!

I love this app. Saves me from having to fire up the desktop and DAW to pick out melodies and instrumental pieces from songs I want to learn. So much easier to use. The pitch and speed change controls are superb. A couple of suggestions, though. Could you make it so that the looper function can be set shorter than the current shortest time. I think it can be closed in to about 2 or 3 secs. It’d be great if the start and end points could be brought together as close as possible. Like in milliseconds. I often try to pull notes out of recordings one by one. I close in on a single note and let it loop, then find it on my guitar or tuner. And if you had a built in tuner in the app in addition, that’d be even better. Then you could loop a note and see on the tuner what the note is.
