Ratings and Reviews
Really simple and easy to use. Used it for 10 shows. Works great.
Fantastic rehearsal app and music theater resource
I've used The MT Pit app more times than I can count. I've used it as an actor, director and producer. As an actor it's been invaluable to me when learning the music for a show and preparing for rehearsals. I love that I can play it in my car or my stereo at home. The new Bluetooth feature is a great bonus. As a director and producer I love that we have this resource for our production team as well as for our actors and musicians. It's been a lifesaver in rehearsals so we don't have to rely on an accompanist, which saves money, but allows our actors to rehearse with the equivalent of the performance tracks. It also ensures my actors have a sure way to rehearse on their own. The app is really easy to use and the sound quality is fantastic. The quality of the tracks themselves are top notch and as good as it gets. The MT Pit uses some of very best musicians to record live orchestral show tracks which, sets them apart from most track rental companies whom rely heavily on midi based tracks. The MT Pit tracks are remarkably better than any competitor source out there. I use this app on every show I work on. Love it.
Needs some work
I got this app to run the music for our Community Theater production of Hello Dolly.
This is a nice app and simple to use, but there are two major issues that make it less than optimal.
1. Once I downloaded the tracks, I was unable to delete any. A few of the numbers are available in several keys, and once we decided which key was best for the actors, I tried to delete the ones we aren't using, but they keep coming back. Now I have to keep skipping the tracks we don't use and it causes unacceptable delays.
2. There is a 3 or 4 second delay between tracks, sometimes you have to segue from one song right to the next, and there. Is an awkward delay.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
