    Works great.

  • Great tool, but one issue...

    By xkinigitx
    I think this app is extremely helpful, but I do wish there was a way to start in various places within the tune. I'd also like to be able to loop specific parts of the tune in order to help students practice. I'm a jazz teacher, so these features are a must in lessons. This would make it more like Smart Music, which is a GREAT practice tool.
  • Great app for jazz and any musician

    This app is sort of a scaled down, community driven Band in a Box. I own BIAB but in order to use it to practice I have to be at my computer, patch cables and so forth. This is much quicker and the quality is surprisingly good. Not as good as BB with a killer GM synt, but actually better that BB with the default one. And yes, it can transpose the songs. Bonus: it shows you the piano chords. No more counting notes for me (I am a guitarist)
  • Love it! And tech support is outstanding!

    By M M Levin
    I play bass, tenor sax and guitar and have been using this app for about 4 years. It has almost always exceeded my expectations and my band mates feel the same! Recently I ran into a transposition problem on one of the exercises that I probably caused by editing it before I mastered the editing function. Tech support worked with me to try to fix it, without success. So they simply sent me a fresh, untinkered version of the exercise which works perfectly! I highly recommend this app!!!
  • Fantastic

    By Bulldozer jr.
    I love the Real Book and all of the songs in it. Now I can easily play along with a band to the songs I like. If I can't find a song I like then I can just create it myself. My guitar teacher actually recommended this app to me and it was money well spent. I highly recommend this app!!!!
  • Serious app for all players!!

    By Kungfu Pub Rep
    I love this app! I'd give it 10 stars if I could. Good instrumentation, easy editing and song creation, some killer real book collections you can get off of the forum. A must have practice tool for jazz and blues players. Update... After using it for several more months now, I love this app even more. Very easy to program in the arrangements of the songs we play with decent accompaniment, a very serious tool for such a great price. Buy it for sure!!
  • Great app

    By GentlemanBe
    This app has helped me go from a "struggling" bass player to a "getting it together" bass player. Highly recommend this app to any musician.
  • Great for practicing

    By KrisMuse
    I use this all the time to practice jazz standards that my music teacher suggests to study and he's impressed with it too. It would be nice if they allowed you to type lyrics along with the chords, for performers that sing while playing, e.g., guitar or bass. It's still a great tool for my practicing.
  • Love it!
