Magic Stave listens to you singing or playing an acoustic musical instrument and displays the sound as notes on a music stave and shows the note positions on a piano, guitar, violin, flute or chromatic harmonica.
If you have a MIDI keyboard you can connect this to Magic Stave and it will display MIDI notes played directly. You can connect any MIDI instrument through a suitable interface and cable OR wirelessly using Bluetooth (on IOS 8 or later on a compatible device).
Magic Stave records MIDI tracks either from the microphone or directly from a connected MIDI keyboard.
When recording from the microphone only single notes can be detected (not chords). When recording from a MIDI keyboard full polyphonic performance data is recorded.
Once you have recorded a MIDI track you can either play the track via the built-in MIDI player OR play the MIDI data (send it) to any set of connected MIDI devices (sound modules, GarageBand on Mac etc.) you choose.
Share your MIDI files via Airdrop, DROPBOX, MMS or email. Whenever inspiration comes to you, you can sing/play your ideas as MIDI and share.
Automatically detects the key signature you're singing/playing.
Use the large Cent Meter to improve the accuracy of your singing as you can see exactly how sharp or flat you are.

Ratings and Reviews
Such a useful app
I love this app; it does the exact thing I wanted an app to do ie listen to my voice or instrument and display it on the stave. It does so much clever stuff over and above this basic function as well! I took it with me when I went to test out a concertina from ebay and it was great for checking that all buttons were in tune. I play violin to it to check my intonation. Also helps if I get a tune in my head and can't remember what it is.
Really appreciate the addition of the violin fingerboard display, but for me I would like the fingerboard to show either fret lines or finger numbers or both as otherwise from a small display it isn't obvious exactly which fingering is being shown. Maybe as an option?
Thanks for a great app.
A reliable pitches & time signature reference companion!
This app has become an essential tool for my vocal practice sessions. I often use this when transposing a song's key signaturw to quickly see if the highest & lowest note are within the safe zone of my vocal range. The key signature auto detection function has been useful in many occations too!
Great as a teaching aid for learning musical notation, practicing singing to help you keep in key and you can even use it as a tuner for your guitar. It's got lots of flexible settings and is very easy to use. It also shows what an amazing piece of kit the iPhone is - even if you don't use it for its intended purpose, it'll impress any friends with an interest in music.
