Toujours Nul

Toujours pas de bémol !!!!



J'en avais rêvé, ils l'ont fait :
1) EDITION bon clavier+les notes TB organisées en palette pour écrire une partition en écoutant la musique
2) FORMAT possibilité de sortir la partition en MIDI, MUSICXML (achat 3€ pour ce complément)
3) PARTAGE appli acheté sur IPAD est gratuite sur IPHONE et le partage se fait par ICLOUDDRIVE
4) je ne sais pas si on peut importer des partitions MIDI ou autres

Au final, une excellente appli pas chère
