Learn your favorite songs without tabs or sheet music.

Whether you play for the world or yourself, all musicians need a good ear for harmony, melody, and rhythm. Using the songs in your music collection, Capo guesses the beats, chords, and key of songs to help you break them down to their individual parts. Capo’s unique technology helps you to learn your favorites quickly as you improve your ear along the way.

Capo is simple and yet so, so good, even the professionals use it:

“Capo is AMAZING!!! Very clutch. Especially when parts are kinda tough in the mix that I can’t make out easily. With other apps you lose quality, this still sounds correct.”
- Omar Edwards: Keyboardist/Music Director for Jay-Z, Rihanna, Kanye West, Eminem, and more

“When I sat down and started using Capo for the first time, I was amazed at how big a punch this little app packs! It's intuitive, convenient, and high-quality.”
- Rebecca Lovell: Lead Vocals, Electric Guitar, Acoustic Guitar, Mandolin, Piano for Larkin Poe

(

Slow everything down, scrub to hear specific notes, and easily create regions that loop as you learn to play the tricky parts. Use Capo’s tools to isolate specific instruments and even vocals to learn any part of a song. With a couple simple switches, you can focus on the piano or eliminate everything to practice the guitar solo.

Capo automatically guesses the beats, chords, and key of songs to get you started. Change, add, or remove the detected chords easily with a few taps as you identify alternate chords and voicings.

Capo saves each song as a project, including the loop regions you set, chord changes, and even the playback position. Learn songs at your own pace and revisit them on any device thanks to iCloud sync for your projects.

What’s New

Version 2.9

- Markers! We finally brought this popular feature over from Capo on macOS over to Capo touch. You’ll find a new entry in your Control Strip to access these controls.
- The all-new Capo Platinum subscription lets you activate the fully-featured Capo 3 for macOS in addition to unlocking all the Pro features in Capo touch.


- The main Waveform area of the display is now powered by the same engine on macOS and iOS versions of Capo. It scrolls more smoothly, looks better, and was built to support exciting new features.
- You can now tap on regions to de-select them, which is helpful when a looping region extends past both edges of the screen.
- The Metronome settings now allow you to enable the click without requiring count-in to be enabled.
- We switched from an included help file to using online documentation, which is easier for us to keep up-to-date, and easier for you to read. Win-win!
- The icon in the PLAYBACK control strip now reflects whether count-in is active, or just the metronome.
- We improved the appearance of the search bar that is displayed when editing chords on iOS 11 and later.


- The waveform display should no longer flicker at the edges as you scroll through the song.
- Various issues related to “stretched” numbers in the timeline have all been resolved.
- When creating a New Project, you are now asked to select between browsing your Music library or choosing an audio file to import. This eliminates an issue where the Import Audio tab would display two tab bars on iPhone X devices, or—on devices with a home button—get stuck on the Recents tab.
- When adding a new chord to the song, Capo now correctly plays its audible feedback in all cases.
- The saved zoom level now restores when loading a saved project.
- The Play button should be a bit easier to tap thanks to its larger hit target.
- We resolved an issue that prevented the “Capo Needs Your Help” alert from taking you to the iTunes Store or the Music app while importing music from your library.
- When renaming a region, the interface is no longer inset on iPhone X devices.
- Corrected the margins of the Trial Mode display on iOS 10.
- The current chord display now correctly saves and restores in the project, and matches whatever was saved on the Mac.
- Capo no longer crashes when a chord is dragged during playback.
- When editing chords, certain partial search strings no longer return empty results.

No idea what I paid for now that they’ve updated it. I’ve restored purchases and I get no notifications that I have a lifetime when I paid for it. Ridiculous subscriptions fees not worth it look elsewhere.

Developer Response ,

Just so you are aware, you have lifetime access to Capo's feature set exactly as you paid for it, *plus* future updates and enhancements to those features. There is no requirement for any of our existing customers to subscribe.

We apologize that we have not made this as clear as it should be in the app, and hope to rectify this in an update in the near future. For now, visit and read our Transition post and hopefully it helps.

Now, if for some reason Capo prompts you for a subscription and blocks you on the use of any of its features—which it should never do in your case—please contact us at so we can investigate.

Again, it is not our intention to force our previously paid customers to subscribe, and we plan to correct this lack of information in an update very soon. Sorry again for the confusion.

If you purchased Capo touch before we moved over to a subscription, you can just tap on 'Restore Purchases' and it should unlock. If this doesn't work for you, please email us at for assistance. Thank you!

awesome audio technology

I’m a composer and love to ad lib compositions, knowing someday day i will have to slog thru the process of listening to chord progressions, analyzing, and writing them down. ugh! that 90% of Creativity can be a bit of a deterrent. This app is awesome at picking out subtle jazz chords. and, if its wrong, the corrections are ez. I believe it lacks a Lead Sheet option. If so, that would be great in future versions. Seems strange, all this advanced technology, and you still have to manually list the chords. Otherwise, the app has a lot options for adjustments to bars, speeds, keys, chord names, etc. that make composition and play along a piece of cake.

Thanks so much for this review of Capo. Glad to hear you're finding it so useful. We do hope to have a lead sheet option in the future.
