I’m Sold - Works Great w/ Logic Pro X

This has become a very valuable songwriting tool for me. Sharing charts with the members of my band is a lot more seamless, and we can all practice our parts by ourselves before rehearsal. Best of all, the MIDI files it generates when using the “Share” tool drop right into Logic Pro X, and it automatically assigns the correct instruments to each track, so if you really need more than GM instruments, and want to humanize the accompaniment, and record your noodling, this is a fantastic companion for that. Seriously, this is one of the most useful apps that has come out for performing and gigging musicians in a long time.

*Update* I also checked to see if it works in Garageband - IT DOES! You have to drag and drop the midi file into the main window.

The #1 music education program…!

An amazing teaching tool…I think the best on any iOS or Mac platform hands down…. excellent practice for musicians, of all levels…work on standard, progressions I VI II V altered chords and use auto transpose for working in all keys …. see scale suggestions for chords…. select a difficult seciton or bridge and loop it... with consistent practice it gets better real fast…the results speak for themselves…the brest investment I ever made bought it for Mac and iOS!!!!!! Thank You Massimo and iReal Pro!!!!!!!!!

A Great Tool!

I love this app. It’s to practice with the programmed songs and styles to have an accompaniment any time you want to practice. I also use it to memorize my band’s songs. I put in the chords and all and I can work on our tunes any time. It’s quick and easy to program. I also recommend the optional upgrades.
