Some pros and some cons
I am a pianist who plays duets and chamber music. I recently downloaded the Schubert Fantasy for 4 hands. The sound quality is pretty bad and sounds like it was recorded digitally by a computer in a very lively room. There is no expression in the playing so I am using it strictly to get the rhythm right and fitting it in with the other part. I’m using a bluetooth headphones to help improve the sound but it’s still not very good. There are a few errors in how the score is played but, for the most part it is accurate.
This app is useful for me to hear how the two piano parts fit together, especially since there are polyrhythms in each part and between the two parts. I feel I have a tutor sitting next to me which is useful since I get together with my duet partner only a couple times a month.
Improvements could be made in the offerings. The Schubert Fantasy is the only advanced 4 hand piece offered. It would be helpful if you could fast forward through the score rather than scrolling through lots of pages. The slowest tempo on the metronome is 50. Would be helpful if it went lower.
Best teaching tool ever!!
After eight years of lessons and really trying to play the piano I had pretty much given up. I wasn’t practicing more than a half hour, two or three times a week and just wasn’t enjoying it anymore. Was all set to sell the ol' piano when I chanced upon Tomplay, a couple weeks ago. Wow! Being able to play using the app's orchestral accompaniment feature makes a huge difference. You really feel like you are playing music when you use that feature. And, as for a teaching tool it can’t be beat. I love being able to #1 slow the tempo, #2 use the looping feature to play 1, 2, 3 or more measures over and over again until I get that part of the piece down pat, #3 appreciate the suggested fingering on each piece, #4 the ability to make my own notations and highlights on the music, and then print it off. And the huge music library is very impressive. Thanks to the Tomplay app I’ve gone from practicing sessions of a half hour a couple of times a week to do literally hours a day.
Great learning tool.
Nicely designed app and very effective tool for music practice. My main interest is classical piano and the major composers are well represented. Most scores have two different audio tracks of real (not midi) instruments to choose from. I like that you can choose between fully annotated score with fingerings and score with no annotation. One thing I wish for is a wider range of tempo adjustment. The app only allows you to slow down to 75% of the original tempo, and some of the tempos are quite brisk. I understand that slowing the tempo too much compromises the quality of the audio playback, but when I am practicing that is not as important to me as being able to play cleanly and keep good rhythm. Also I must amend my earlier review in which I complained that I was not able to restore my previous purchases and was getting no response from the developer. I'm not sure of the cause of the communication failure but they have reached out to me and the problem is resolved. Thank you Tomplay!
