It's a great app and when it's right it's fantastic but very often it will have just blatantly the wrong notes in the song. You can hear the correct notes played by the recording but the sheet music just has it wrong. I'd say I noticed this once or twice is every song regardless of difficulty level. I love the format and the choices and I use it almost exclusively however I wish they would fix this problem. And the blue line is not in time with the recording making it basically useless.....
Fabulous app! Favorite feature is the eliminated page turn. Perfect that it gives those of us who read ahead the timing we need!
Please please please add the features of us somehow being able to add our own sheet music and maybe a suggestion box of music we would love to have that's not there yet. For example, the sheet music for RENT would be great!
Amazing quality and sound. New update is fantastic in that you can now shut off lead vocals, making it a perfect Karaoke experience along with the ability to be "in the band" as the keyboardist.
