This is a great app with many songs and chord charts.However there are so many songs missing! I don’t expect them to have every song in the world lol.I real if you are reading this pleas pleas pleas pleas put these 2 songs in you’re app. In graze, and highline, by Jim rotondi
Well I suppose the bread and butter of this app would be chord input . after inputting 50+ bars I found it difficult to navigate to the end of the page .. the cursor(next button) gets locked at the end of the page/line and does not move forward !
I was turned on to this App by a music professor at a state university and I was blown away with all the features it offers for musicians to hone their craft, at their own pace and time. I was also recently impressed by their awesome level of prompt support. This App is a gem at your fingertips!
IReal Pro is probably the iPhone/iPad app I use more than any other. As a music practice tool, it’s just fantastic. Creating playlists, setting different tempos, changing key signatures — all very easily done. I’m a saxophone player, and I practice every day, often switching horns in the middle of practice. So transposing for different instruments (e.g. Bb to Eb) is pretty important; this app makes it easy. I’ve been a Band in a Box user for many years, but iReal Pro is a much easier product to use.
Where is the main track where is the melody????
I am so frustrated with this app I want to smash my iPhone. Worst app ever.
I wanted to download specific jazz standards to play and sing for a gig and be able to transpose them easily... this app is confusing and not user friendly, for $13 I’m very disappointed with the format. Could someone direct me to a more stream lined Real Book only app??
This is my 2nd review. Prior to this, I rated iRealpro 5 stars; now I like to change that rating to 5.5 to 6 stars. I love all that is possible with iReal. However, when an issue came up I submitted the problem in the evening thinking the response would get to me within a day or two. Instead, when morning arrived upon waking up, there it was; the answer to my question. Many thanks to the iReal crew.
The charts are often incorrect and usually only one version is available. It’s better than nothing but it used to be better!
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
An amazing practise and teaching tool. If only the charts I made on my laptop could sync to my phone and iPad so I am never without a chart. Seems like an easy thing to implement, pls add
If you are a musician at any level, this is the app for you! Imagine being able to practice any of hundreds and hundreds of INCLUDED songs at any tempo and in any key. Any number of choruses. Ability to select the rhythmic style. Ability to select the instrumentation of the rhythm section. Ability to dial rhythm instruments up or down - or out. You can even enter your own song chord changes. It’s not just a practice tool. You can hook your phone up to an amp and perform in public with this app. Make playlists. This is one of THE most well designed, well maintained and useful apps anywhere.
A marvelous app for jazz practice, and the customer support is outstanding! There’s a lady in app support named Niki who is especially helpful and knowledgeable. Highly recommended!
I love this app. However, it would be perfect if we could have chords played on the "and" especially on the 6/8 and 12/8 time signatures. My rating is actually 4.5 but you can't rate on the "and" either. 😎
Awesome practice tool.
I’ve been using this app for years, and it’s been great, but there are 3 things this is missing. 1.) Sharing charts via text. 2.) Writing In off beat hits. 3.) MINOR 13 CHORDS.
You need to improve the sounds.... When I hear your system... just maschine.... Your sound is not instrumental sound... Fix that all please.... And you need more mixing tracks... There is a lack of mixing instrument.... We need more complicated music,,,,!,, We do not need many styles.. it is enough now!,!! Do not make more styles... just improve sound quality!!! And bountiful sound we want!,!!!!!
iRealPro is the constant in my practice-I’ve found nothing more complete and fulfilling than this app in my Jazz practice. When it’s not possible to play with others, iReal is there to keep me on track. Thanks, Erik
Any musician who wants to learn theory or just play and have fun this is the app for you. I love it and it’s helped me become a much better player. Devs: Please keep up the good work!!
I’m 4 years into committed practice of jazz bass guitar, and I truly don’t see how I could pursue this path without my iReal Pro. My daily practice routines ~ scale and arp cycles to chord sequences to songs ~ are fully dependent on practice tracks. The app has so many settings, I can’t really see what couldn’t be practiced with it. Ok there’s probably a way for an adult non-genius with a good teacher and method to learn to play without iRealPro, but I can’t think what it is.
