Music App With Best Value

iReal Pro is one of the best valued music apps available from the App Store. It is essentially “Band In A Box” for less than 15% its cost. I’m using it as an analysis tool by improvising different mode scales over various jazz chords and determining which particular mode fits best with the chord progression being played in the iReal Pro App.

It’s also works well for improving or learning new rhythm styles, progression recognition, and for those of us that don’t have the ability to here a composition in our heads, it gives you that ability by allowing you to program different music theory concepts into the app and then listen to how they interact during playback.

There is also a forum provided that has several thousand songs available, in different genres for free download. I was also surprised when I needed support, because usually for me, getting competent or sometimes any support is a rare occurrence, so when the support department quickly replied to my issue, found the problem and then quickly fixed it, I must say that I was pretty impressed.

Superb tech support

After not being able to get a simple function to work, I emailed iRealPro support. I got quick response, and was not scolded for being stupid, which I was. This app is incredibly useful for teaching, learning and rehearsal. Wish I would have gotten it sooner.
