Fantastic tool for singers of all styles and skill levels.
I downloaded this on an impulse, not gonna lie. I had purchased other vocal warmup apps in the past, and was largely disappointed by the lack of real content and anything helpful in the way of actual tools for building the voice. The price on this one was a little bit of a shocker, but after reading through the details, I was willing to give it a shot. Plus the name sounds fun. But wow, once I opened it up and started viewing the video tutorials, I was glad I did. Now that I've been through the tutorials, I've made a custom playlist that I can sing along with while I drive to rehearsal.
I've been trying to focus on and improve my chest voice, as I've been given mostly the contralto parts of my a cappella group's repertoire. I sang along with the chest voice exercises in my car on the way to rehearsal one night, and I could not believe my own voice. Maybe my car has good acoustics, but it also carried over into my rehearsal. I have also worked on the head voice and head belt warmups, and they are also fantastic and creative. I've had some problems with singing loud enough, and I can already tell that these "lessons" are helping a lot. I already feel much more connected and in control of the power of my voice.
My only technical beef with the app is that the music does not stop upon removing the headphone jack, even if the phone itself is muted with the switch. I play it through the tape deck in my car, and as soon as I remove the plug, I have to make sure to also go back into the app and stop the warmup. Also, while I really appreciate that I can leave the app to look at/do something else and the warmup will keep playing, it does not move on to the next track in your warmup list unless you are actually in the app.
Amazing app for ANY vocalist!
I'm an hip-hop MC/singer with a day job where I am speaking non-stop. My singing is influenced by gospel and rock so a lot of belting, growls, etc. Eventually because of my job and asthma I started to lose some of ability to belt i my high range. I watched the vids and built my warmup. Today was my first day going through my full warmup and singing. After ONE warmup my belting range was improved. ONE day. This is the best vocal warmup app you are going to buy. And I bought some of the others - which despite how much cheaper they were ended up being a waste of money. THANK YOU FOR THIS APP!
I wasn't sure what to expect with this app, but I am very happy with my purchase. I took voice lessons for many years, and this app taught me some new tips & exercises as well as reinforced what I already knew.
