"Play it with iPod – Learn it with iLift"

iLift:PLAY Audio Transcriber helps you transcribe and learn to play music from recordings.

It can control the Music / iPod app (including streaming Apple Music songs), loop sections of a song, display a waveform, rewind or fast forward like a tape player, repeat songs, navigate playlists, and show metadata.

You can use it without reading complicated instructions, managing files, or understanding English; you can even operate it without looking at the screen (!).

Use your ears to learn jazz solos, fiddle tunes, math rock, indigenous music, classical pieces, Lady Gaga, ... Whatever grooves you, this app will help you develop your listening ability.

* * * TWO FLAVOURS * * *

iLift Audio Transcriber comes in two flavours - iLift:REMIX and iLift:PLAY. Both of them have similar features and share the same look and feel.

Use iLift:REMIX to change the speed, key, or tuning of the song; it has high quality sound adjustments.

Use iLift:PLAY when you want to work with playlists or streaming Apple Music songs. It’s like a remote control for the Music / iPod app, so you can start playing there and finish here!

Both will come in handy.

* * * QUOTES * * *

"Use it daily. Favorite music app.”

"allows me to spend the least amount of time touching my iPad and the most time actually picking up notes and wrtiting them down on my sheet. I'm already transcribing my third song and it's really quite fun"

"Very easy to use. I play bass and just learned a song with this app. I was able to do everything with one hand and keep the other on my instrument."

"Beautiful and very comfortable interface. The app is very simple and allows you to do with eye gestures what other applications are making it more complicated."

"Simply the best and easiest app I have ever used!! Super easy to figure out and I use it all the time. A must have for musicians!!!"

"If you're a musician who uses an iPhone or iPad to learn songs, then you will love this app. If you hate music players with cluttered up, busy screens and tiny little control buttons, you will love this app."

"This app has certainly increased my musical potential."

"It's very easy to use and a wonderful tool for language learners."

"It's manna!”

"It's obvious this app was designed by a musician who needed a better music player for learning and practicing songs."

Love it

At first I found this app a little confusing but the more I used it the more I realized how well designed it was.

The best thing about it is its well-designed A-B repeat feature. As a classical singer, I use it to repeatedly play small segments within a larger piece, and particularly small segments that are of greater than average difficulty. This helps me master them very quickly. You could not ask for a better tool for that. It is also very easy to change the A and B points as you go.

It basically lets you select any of the songs already found in your device's music application, and then lets you modify their playback in accordance with your needs.

While my primary need is an easy to use A-B repeat feature, it also allows you to speed up or slow down playback without changing the pitch. (I understand that a different version of this app also allows you to change the key in which a song plays back.)

The only negatives are: (1) the lack of a good set of instructions built into the app, (2) if using it on an iPad, it only displays in landscape mode and (3) I would love it if the repeat feature would continue to work when you are in a different app reading the lyrics you are trying to memorize. These are not major drawbacks though. As to the lack of a good set of instructions, you can quickly learn what you need by trial and error.

This has quickly become an indispensable app for me.

Works perfectly

Works perfectly on my iPhone 6s on iOS 9.2.1. I tried all the features and there have been no crashes are glitches so far. This is the app I've been looking for to be able to learn music. I love hitting the rewind button and having to go back a few seconds. It's also easy to set a locate point hitting the different rewind button that goes back to that locate point. It's a very intuitive app. Extremely easy for me to figure out. Thank you for creating this app!


I bought this app so that I could play drum loops at Various tempos and practice with them. The app is very glitchy. It does not loop smoothly. I wish I could get my two dollars back.
