• Use Capo’s “mastering-quality time stretching engine” to speed-up or slow-down songs without affecting pitch or song quality.
• Transpose songs and see the chords adjust automatically.
• Utilize Capo’s effects to better hear parts of the song you’re trying to learn (mono, graphic equalizer, vocal reduction)

• Set regions for looping using Capo's built-in beat detection engine.
• Use Capo’s speed adjustment abilities when looping to help you practice a particular part of a song repeatedly until you can play it perfectly.
• Add a metronome to keep you in time during practice, or to count you in before your loops.

• Capo’s “Chord Intelligence" engine will automatically detect the chords in your song – giving you a head start.
• Easily edit, add or correct any chord detection results that come up short.
• Utilize Capo’s Spectrogram to add notes generating tablature of solos or other detailed parts of the song.
• Easily change the notation from guitar to bass, mandolin, ukulele or 5-string bass chords and/or modify the tuning.
• Add a ‘virtual capo’ at any fret.
• Lefties...we got you covered. Easily flip the display of the chord boxes for easier reading.

• Export pitch- and speed-corrected audio for use outside Capo, as well as its chord and note entries for use in scoring or other MIDI-compatible applications.

• Save your pitch and speed settings, as well as your region, chord, and note entries, in self-contained Projects so the next time you want to practice you can pick up where you left off learning.
• Share your Projects using email, AirDrop, Messages, or simply by copying a file to another Mac to collaborate with students or other band members.

WHat the heck!@!

I had Capo 2 which was great - imagine my surprise to find that I get to buy Capo 3 for another $30 now that it no longer works with the lastest Mac OS. So I shell out the money only to find that 3 is not as good as 2. I can’t even find the markers to segment a section that I want to loop, slow down and learn. That’s all Capo is supposed to be for and that feature is gone. What the heck!!!! Do not buy this ntil they get their act together. Now - I get to shell out yet another $30 for Anytune. I only bought Capo because I had been happy with Capo2. Just amazing how easy it is to get ripped off here at the App store.

good functionality poor quality

it crashes a lot !!
