Have you ever dreamed of a tool that automatically detected the chords in your music, allowed you to isolate a guitar part so you can hear it more clearly, removed the vocals so you could sing along, or just slowed your favorite tracks down so that you can hear notes more clearly and play along at your own pace? Capo does all of this, and much more!

Kenny Wright, the bassist for John Legend, Pharrell, Wiz Khalifa, J. Cole and many more says:

“Capo’s a lifesaver, it truly is! I always carry my iPad, and now I can use Capo there and on my computer. I love the initial auto chord detection and the ‘Add Chord’ button to catch every detail of the performance. It takes all the guessing out of learning transition notes, intros, outros, etc. I check everything in Capo!”

It’s true! Capo automatically detects and displays the chords, key and tempo of the songs you load from your music collection. Capo's Chord Intelligence engine makes quick work of transcribing the chords in a song, and if it gets some chords wrong, Capo's easy-to-use editing tools make it quick to fix issues.

When loaded, each song displays a spectrogram that lets you to look deep inside your music to not only see what is being played, but how. This display helps you identify bends, vibrato, slides and other nuances of the performance so you can learn to play exactly what you are hearing. You can also click on the notes you see with your mouse, and Capo will generate tablature for you. No need for a notepad, and you can even work without your instrument nearby.

Capo's sophisticated time stretching engine allows you to slow down your music without changing its pitch or allows you to transpose your music and adjust its pitch without affecting the playback speed. These features are invaluable for practicing solos at a comfortable pace or learning a song in a different key.

[NEW] In the latest release, Capo now includes isolation controls, powered by SuperMegaUltraGroovy's all-new audio isolation engine called Neptune. With just a few adjustments, vocals or instruments can be heard in isolation or muted in your music.

It should come as no surprise—practice makes perfect. So we’ve loaded Capo with features that help you practice effectively. Capo’s built-in beat detection engine can detect the beats and bars of your music, helping you quickly set regions for looping and practice. Here you can mark the parts of your music that require extra practice, or adjust the speed of different sections while looping to practice over and over again until you have it just right. You can also add a metronome to keep you in time during practice, or to count you in before your loops.

This is just some of what Capo can do for you. To experience for yourself how Capo gives you practicing "super powers", download a FREE trial of Capo today at and test out the songs you want to learn TODAY!

Customer Reviews

Crash. Crash. Crash.

Great tool for learning since you will be re-re-re-doing your work over and over and over again to overcome the constant crashing.

Seriously, if locking up is going to be a flagpole feature, maybe the dev could at least add automatic timed backups? Or allow us to use a cloud system more reliable than iCloud Drive.
