This update contains fixes for some minor issues
I’ve spent countless hours joyfully singing with this app. I’ve also been able to set keys that fit my voice like a glove. This used to be a very awkward process with a pianist, because finding the perfect key can be very time consuming. Well, it is for me. I can also email a set list and charts for upcoming gigs. This makes life so much easier. It is truly a bargain. I’ve saved hundred of dollars in rehearsal time because of this app. I recommend it to all my singer friends. Thank you!
They just throw you in there, without knowing anything. I don’t know how to do anything, and right now it looks like all it is for is jazz improvising which was not what I was looking for. Would not recommend
I have been using this app for years now and I do love it. I think there’s room for a few vital adjustments tho... one in particular that I would really like to see fixed. When a song is transposed and I want to edit chord changes, as soon as it goes into edit mode, it shows the chords in the original key the song was inputted, rather than the key I’m currently working with. This can be very frustrating in the moment for trying to make quick adjustments as I have to constantly transpose in my head to make edits. It would be nice if the edit mode always stayed in whatever key the current setting is.
Advertises you can imports songs and playlists but doesn’t tell but only from the inside forums which you also have to buy. It’s a joke! Don’t waste your money. Buyer remorse and wasted a bunch of my time I could have been practicing
I can’t give it a zero. Totally useless!
This great app. Will be over the top forever with one More BIG FEATURE; Pitch control This will enable the user to tune the app song to a piano Or guitar Can it be done? Rex Great thanks
Whether you’re a serious amateur musician, semi-pro, or seasoned pro, this is a must-have app for practicing and gigging. And if you’re a jazz musician, get this NOW! The only thing missing will be the heads, but you can download all the changes from the Real Book and practice to your heart’s content. Build set lists and take it to gigs, so long as you know the heads.
Pretty useless for rock music. Store won’t refund money so I am out 12 bucks for something I won’t use.
I thought I’d be able to plug in my guitar using iRig and play along. You have to use GarageBand to do that, and then you can’t see the chord charts. Useless for me.
Absolutely love this app! I can download thousands of scores, edit it, create it, change the key and the tempo,... It’s the aid to learning songs!
A few backing tracks is all you get for $5
As I said, brilliant!
I use iRealPro on practically a daily basis. Mostly, it’s for daily practice, but also for being able to look up songs I’m interested in learning, or practicing my analysis skills. Whilst this will never replace playing with a live band, iRealPro is the next best thing. I’ve seen iRealPro grow and improve over the last few years, particularly in the styles and backing track generation. The developers are responsive to beta feedback and user suggestions. Things I’m hoping to see in future versions are more controls over dynamics, and adding text notes to tunes. But these are really additions to an already very strong app.
Man this thing is brilliant, great for learning progressions, practicing improv. I haven't even scratched the surface i.e. Arranging, Transposition it's all in here though..
iReal Pro is one of its kind, the program works so smoothly and the updates it has received over the last few months have shown their ability to listen to the consumer and streamline an already incredible application. A necessity for any serious musician.
As a professional musician, this is the most helpful and handy App to use whether I’m teaching or doing a gig... thank you!
Haven’t had this app for long but already am enjoying how very useful it is. For practice or learning new tunes it is a real help. Many many well known and some not so well known songs are available from the lists and a blog of helpful users contribute frequently. If you don’t find the one you’re looking for you can send out a request and another user may have what you need. Editing is pretty easy. It didn’t take me long to get my own tunes in and get practicing. Well done to the designers.
This app is honestly the only thing that got me through the HSC, it's soft and tender hands comforted me when I couldn't play my Music piece the day it was due.
About time! about time a Great App like this one is available.
Fantastic app for musicians. I just keep finding new features and this app is certainly the standard accessory for open Mics where I live.l
Wow, what an app! Easy to use, excellent for practice and live performance. Just connect it via Bluetooth and done.
I use this app on my iPad and on my phone. I love it. I can’t remember what life was like without it.
This is a great app for jazz musicians. Wish I had this back in music school.
for any student of Jazz (or professional), this app puts the whole world in the palm of your hand. Five stars!
I am a professional pianist and use to carry all my fake books to a gig. Now all I use is this app. All I need to do is remember the melody. Most of the time I have singer so it’s not a problem. One time some people from Brazil came in. They requested songs I never heard of. I asked them, “if I play the chords, can you sing the melody?” They said yes, so I showed them the Brazilian songs that I had downloaded. They sang, loved it and gave me $100 tip. I have many similar stories. There are so many books that users have uploaded. Most of them are checked by the developer. They are very good at “talking with you and helping or suggesting tips. Every professional musician that I know has this app. What’s even better is that I have separate Play Lists for each singer. Even if they all sing the same song, the play list has it in their key with their arrangement.
I still love the app for practice and for organizing my own lists. But ever since the latest iOS update, the option to share a list in the iReal format doesn’t work. That was one of my favorite / most useful things about the app, so I hope it gets updated!
Helpful app but I purchased this on my iPhone which transferred to my iPad. Unfortunately, my MacBook and iMac won’t recognize my purchase and keeps prompting me to pay $19.99! If I had of known, I would’ve purchased on my computers as I use those more for practice.
I wish that you can go from Latin to swing and have it keep going and not just switch in between once
Frankly, this is an essential item for any jazz musician. An incredible work, play, practice tool that continues to get better each update. It’s amazing. Buy it.
Thoughtfully designed into every musician’s companion by caring and smart people
