Spending too much time just learning to sing on key? Now you can develop this most basic singing skill all by yourself using Singer's Mate.
Singer's Mate is a pitch training tool that provides visual feedback of your performance by detecting and displaying the pitch you are singing. The pitch is superimposed over the notes of your practice material as they are animated across the screen.
Singer's Mate comes installed with several popular pieces from the public domain so that you can immediately start practicing. However, Singer's Mate is a tool for mastering your music, which means that you will have to import your scores for practice. Singer's Mate makes this easy by supporting the MusicXML format, the fastest growing format for exchange of digital scores and provides several convenient methods for acquiring and importing new musicXML files.
Even after you acquire new material, it may not be in the proper vocal range. In such case, transposition has always been a chore, but not with Singer's Mate. All you have to do is open the built-in Transposition Tool, sing a few notes while selecting a range and your music will be automatically transposed.
Your practice tempo is also chosen by an interactive tool and stored in Singer's Mate's database, along with the transposition value. These values will be automatically reinstated each time the same song is opened for practice.
Be aware that there are several limits on the MusicXML files that Singer's Mate can play. By design, Singer's Mate only provides accompaniment in the form of the melody line. That is, it will not handle chords. However, this is not much of a restriction as the great majority of lead sheets used to practice singing only contain the melody line. Also, the MusicXML file must have a DOCTYPE of score-partwise. Again, this is not much of a restriction. Score-partwise is the usual doctype a lead sheet would have.
Besides voice students, Singer's Mate is also a great aid for the voice teacher. Teachers can use any of a growing number of score editors that support MusicXML to prepare lessons and exercises for their students.

You must wear a headset connected to your iOS device in order to use Singers Mate.

Fixed various bugs, especially those preventing parameter selection under Settings.
Ratings and Reviews
Exactly what I needed.
This program is exactly what I needed. I write a lot of songs and also play a lot of covers. I write the melody in the free app muse score then upload it into singers mate. It helps me find the best key to play it in and also focus on any trouble notes to hone in a good pitch. It has help me solidify my knowledge of my vocal range. I highly recommend.
Works perfectly! I love this thing.
I have been looking for something like this and I am very happy to have found it. It is very simple to use and does what the description says, perfectly. I can definitely see that this will help me improve my singing.
Good concept but I want to insert my own material... Not be limited to what the developer thinks I should learn. Needs a ton more options to be worth 2.99. It DOES read notes accurately.
