Ratings and Reviews
Worked after some trial and error. Disregard previous bad review I wrote
Unusable with Apple Music songs
A useful tool for people who need to transcribe or learn music. The loop function is great, and combined with the tempo variation makes picking out parts from a recording much easier.
Unfortunately, the product won't work with material that has any DRM at all, including music from the Apple Music service. These subscription services are great for musicians, who can have access to a very large library of material. What you can't do with that music, even if you have downloaded it to your device, is use it with this app. It won't even load. This puts me in the position of either "stealing" the music by removing DRM or paying per song to have DRM free material.
I understand that Apple doesn't give the necessary access to their music, for a wide variety of reasons, but that doesn't change the fact that I spent money on an app that is useless to me, and the product description didn't really do anything to inform me of the limitation. Not gonna break the bank, but certainly an avoidable purchase had the dev been more upfront. Or even mildly sympathetic.
Also, I had trouble figuring out how to get to the tempo adjustment controls intuitively. You swipe the album art, and it is noted in the help doc under the General heading at the top, but a simple arrow at the side would have made this easier.
Good but could be much better
Very good app to adjust the audio speed and pitch... simple to use.
But you need to adjust the speed whenever track changes (it resets the speed with each track) and there is no lock screen controls... I hope developer will fix these two issues in next update… otherwise this is perfect app. Thanks
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
