Midi Guitar 2

MIDI Guitar is the world’s first app to transcribe guitar playing into MIDI in real-time, with latency and accuracy comparable to expensive and inconvenient hardware MIDI guitar solutions. Play any synth or virtual instrument with your trusted old guitar, or record tablature by playing it.

MIDI guitar is 8 years under development and based upon new advances in polyphonic pitch detection and prediction technology. It can accurately recognize guitar playing and articulation with very low latency and without spurious hits. The technology has been tested by thousands of beta testers.

What’s New in Version 2.1.3
MIDI Guitar 2 is finally here on iOS!
Everything is improved. Tracking in particular.
ATTENTION! old customers: Don’t upgrade yet if you have old iDevices (iPad2/3 or iPhone4)
ATTENTION! old customers: Please “Restore” your old purchase in the built-in shop.

Midi Guitar 2

MIDI Guitar uses Virtual MIDI to contorl other iOS synth apps or Garageband. It can also use WIFI-MIDI to communicate with Mac or PC digital audio workstations in a frictionless setup. Cable based MIDI to control hardware synths or connect to DAWs with lowest possible latency.

In order to use MIDI Guitar you need a iPhone 5, iPad 4, iPod 6 or later. You also need a guitar interface for best results. We recommend a digital interface (using the lightning connector) over analog (via headphone jack), preferably with input gain control. Using an acoustic guitar with the built in microphone works for some purposes but is not optimal.

The free version will interrupt now and then, asking you to buy an in-app purchase. There are two in-app purchases. The first one gives you the full guitar rig and unlocks everything in the app EXCEPT the possibility to play external synths. For that you need the second in-app purchase, in addition.

Live Guitar For iPad

Live Guitar is designed to support playing complex chords, arpeggios, and finger-style guitar lines on your iOS device. Because the iPhone and iPad are not shaped like the neck of a guitar, the app provides an innovative way of selecting chords, while also leaving enough room to play individual strings accurately and expressively.

What’s New in Version 1.3
Introducing Audiobus support, improved support for virtual and core MIDI, and the import/export of chord progressions through Twitter.

Chords are organized in sets, which you can customize and change on a song-by-song basis. A single touch on the fretboard selects the first chord of a set; two touches selects the second, and so on. It’s possible to move quickly and accurately between sixteen different chords without needing to look at the screen; the chords available are taken directly from tablature that can be imported to the app. When playing guitar, switching between chords smoothly is critical; the app has been designed so that you can play music, not just notes.

Single string notes and strums can be played with touches or swipes; the organic sonic texture that comes from varying note intensity is obtained by adjusting where on a string you touch. The interface orientation on the iPhone gives more space between the strings, allowing you to play individual strings more accurately.

Live Guitar supports Chordpro formatted transcriptions; transcriptions to thousands of songs, with both the lyrics and chords, are available on the internet. Chordpro formatted transcriptions can be imported through the internal web browser, or with iTunes file sharing. Chord progressions can be imported from Twitter. You can also edit and create transcriptions in the app, and share transcriptions and chords easily.

MIDI connects your playing to laptop or desktop recording tools like GarageBand, Logic, Reaper, or ProTools. CoreMIDI, Virtual MIDI, and DSMIDI are all supported; you can choose the interface that gives you the best performance on your system. Live Guitar can send MIDI to the GarageBand app, as well as most other synthesizer apps. At present, SampleTank is not compatible.

For those learning to play, Live Guitar gives a gentle introduction to the fretboard and forming chords, and makes playing a song easy. Pros will appreciate the support for tablature and MIDI connectivity. For everyone, the app is a way to get a little “guitar playing fix” when the real thing isn’t available.

There are a number of guitar apps available. What makes Live Guitar different is the integration of song lyrics and chords, and the novel way in which chords are selected. It’s not just a portable guitar, it’s a portable guitar with access to tens of thousands of song transcriptions.

The app should work on all iPhones, iPads, and the iPod Touch, but is best suited for the iPhone 3Gs and newer, the 4th generation iPod Touch, and any iPad. Audiobus works best on newer iPads and iPhones.

Live Guitar is available for $3.99

Guitar Teaching App For iPad

Strumify is the music teaching app that listens to you play a real instrument. Featuring a powerful real-time listening engine, easy-to-read graphics, and multi-touch interface – Strumify makes practicing and learning to play fun.

Strumify has built-in support for Guitar, Ukulele, Baritone Ukulele and Mandolin. It works with both acoustic and electric instruments. (Electric instruments require the use of an instrument adapter.)

Strumify will help you become a better musician because it emulates many of things a real teacher does:
– Adapts to your speed and abilities
– Shows you clearly what to do
– Plays it for you so you can hear how it sounds
– Listens as you play,
– Gives you feedback on what you’re doing well and how you can improve

The built-in Progression Maker lets you dial in thousands of combinations of chord progressions and strumming patterns.* Find a sound you like and play along to get in the groove. Strumify will show you the chord diagrams and strumming direction.

Add songs and exercises via in-app purchase, or import your own songs in PowerTab and chopro formats.*

Use the simple yet powerful Song and Progression Editor to quickly edit and save your own songs. Customize progressions and strumming patterns. Share the songs and exercises you create with others via e-mail – great for music teachers, classes and bands!*

(*Note: song import, song/progression editor and full-access to progression maker require In-App Purchase to unlock.)

Strumify will let you slow down the music to match your ability. Or, learn new songs and tricky parts by stepping through them one beat at a time. When you reach the end of a song, Strumify generates a report card showing you your rhythm and pitch accuracy overall, by chord, and even by chord transition.

Other key features:
– Built-in tuner
– Support for multi-track songs and many instrument sounds
– Piano tracks show you which keys to play
– Drum tracks highlight which drums to play on a drum kit view
– Multi-track volume controls.
– Alternate scrolling tablature view
– Built-in help videos.

Works on iPhone4, iPhone4S, iPad, and iPad2 or greater. Also works on iPhone3GS, but very fast complicated music may cause some hiccups.

Strumify is available for free
