It’s not a back up band to use in your home studio recordings. It is for you to practice your soloing on your instruments or see and hear chord theory for accompanying a lead. It’s an excellent app. It’s not for great sounding virtual instruments. The instruments sound good enough, but this is about you practicing and learning music, not for the quality of the instruments themselves. Awesome and limitless as far as potential for learning & studying music is concerned!

I waited to review this app to see how I’d like it and it’s functions. As a beginning musician trying to learn guitar in later life and never having learned any music/instruments you I’m not sure you will find a better tool. Takes a little time to learn how to use the app effectively, but I have found the app to be extremely flexible and helpful. Completely worth the money.

This app is a nice idea, however the execution is very confusing. It is very difficult to organize the songs that you want to keep and the songs that you want to practice. Also, as usual, it is difficult to understand instructions that are written in pigeon English.

Solid Playback, compositional accompaniment and practice tool with multiple applications. But doesn’t come with any music but there’s a great form or you could download the court changes to thousands of popular tunes and experiment by changing the styles. It’s like band in a box, and someways more versatile, but with less tweak ability in regards to the accompaniment. If you want to gig and you don’t know key changes, this is the app to have. I’ve seen so many professionals with them. You can also export midi, and whatever style you want. It’s help me to compose new songs. The interface is a little tricky, but there’s plenty of tutorials and helpful for him literature, as well as templates and options. This is probably the most comprehensive tool of its kind, and although there’s no real audio, if you’re not happy with the sounds of styles, export the midi, or if you like what you hear you can export the audio. For example, I found a tune template with some key changes I liked. Tweaked and changed some of the form and chords with ones I was hearing. Changed up the style. Wrote the developers and ask them if they could add an option to record. Not only did they respond, they did. Unbelievable. That was five years ago. There are still regular updates... it and it is absolutely a go to app that is One killer practicing, especiallyif you are a student of jazz, Bluegrass, blues, this will help you gain levels. I even use it on gigs if someone has a song request that is too obscure to find a backing track. It’s all about just getting from Milyer with the controls. Being tasteful and thinking creatively. It also is a plus, having the technology on hand to stream Bluetooth audio.

I’m a jazz snob. This app is perfect for me since I am learning jazz piano. It is also very good for composing and even recording a tune with other instruments, PROVIDED, one uses the midi out file transfer. The internal sounds are okay for learning but not good enough to record with. That’s okay because with a midi file player and multi layered sample based apps one can can obtain a very decent recording. I encourage the developer to consider further enhancements such as more comping styles, chord inversions, additional drum fills and practice tunes " in the style of (artist)". BTW, I have all the Session Band Jazz apps and this app has them beat. Great job!

Love this app! My ONLY suggestion for improvement would be to make it so that the note velocity in the chordal instrument have a little more of a humanistic quality. Maybe make each note velocity, or even whole chord velocities, be a little varied. Everything hammers at the same volume now, which is pretty mechanical sounding. Don't know how you'd achieve that. But if you did, I could gig with this!

I love this app. It makes short work of the grind musicians have had to bear for so long.

This app essential to my work as a musician. I do not upgrade the app because I lose all my playlists when I upgrade the app. The companies fix for this “is download your Play lists and re-enter them into the app after you’ve done the upgrade. This should be fixed. If you do not do it correctly you have to rebuild all your playlists. If you are somewhat technically challenged as I am it’s gonna be a problem.
