IReal Pro Positive Reviews
The versatility of iReal ProThere’s no question that there are similar products on the market but the versatility of iReal Pro allows the practitioner of music or the producer the ability to not only create but continue to grow as a technician. I personally have found the app useful in production not being a keyboardist by training. Additionally, it is a great and useful tool to practice new material or theory by soloing over changes or melody as well as having a set list available to distribute to musicians in a band. and of all of the things listed what has not been mentioned is having this in your back pocket when impromptu performing when you don’t know a song you have a roadmap at your fingertips which is incredibly useful and I’ve used dozens of times whether it’s on a professional gig or just sitting in when I did not know the tune. The only drawback to this wonderful app is that it only allows rhythms on the one on the downbeat and nothing on the upbeat. There would be so much more possibility if you could have portal rhythmic phrasing on eighth notes or 16th notes instead of just on quarter notes. This is something that I as well as others perhaps have suggested however for whatever reason it is still not available. Other than that one area it’s an amazing product for the price and I find it highly useful..Version: 2021.2
One of the greatest practice coachesI have been using this app for several years now. It’s useful for my drum practice, bass practice, vocal practice, songwriting. How one chooses to use this as a practice tool: the sky’s the limit! The online community is amazing. I can have friends come over and I mute their particular instrument along with mine.I am learning bass as my second instrument and this program is invaluable. I can slow down anything to a manageable Tempo so I can explore the chords deeper.
I can pick up even esoteric jazz and pop songs with the incredible online community. I do not need to be connected to the Internet to play downloadable songs with this software. I use it to also practice vocal exercises. It also exports charts to PDF which is fantastic if I want to play or share a chart with the actual song audio.
One of the best purchases I’ve ever made from my iPhone and iPad. They say Time magazine voted this One of the 50 best inventions of 2010. I say it’s still one of the 50 best inventions for musicians and it’s 2018. Thank you developers!.Version: 8.3.2
IReal Pro is totally awesomeAs a rhythm section player and music teacher, I can say without hesitation that iReal Pro has improved my playing and flexibility. The ability to have the changes to any tune, in any key, instantly, eliminated the need to carry around multiple real books to play casual gigs. The ability to have a play along track for any chart is a game changer in that it allows better practice and to allows one to fuse theory with improvisation. The search function allows access to most common tunes even brand new ones (not always totally correct, but almost always better than nothing). If all else fails, iReal allows us to easily and intuitively make our own charts and share any chart or playlist right there on the gig (as long as there a cell signal) or via email or text beforehand. All this for half the price of a single real book. Best music tool ever..Version: 2020.12
Indespendible !!!!!Man, I’ve never been particularly adept at the tech side of music although we all strive to improve. I admit it, as a composer/player I tend to be impatient! This app serves the purpose of the composer SO WELL. Have a melody and chord changes in my head! Bap! I lay it down, play with grooves, tempos, new harms. and bring the composition to fruition in know time flat! As a pianist, I merely deck the onboard cat and have the most AMAZING tool to craft a composition! Also, by running it around through all keys, newer added ideas seam to materialize! And although I know my theory, writing a lead sheet would deflate my immediate artistic enthusiasm! Hats Off to iRealPro! It’s a tool for the intermediate to the most advanced jazz musician. And what a practice aid! I insist any students I may take get it immediately!! It’s as valuable as the Real Book was in Boston almost 60 years ago, only 10 times more useful!!! Joe Delaney.Version: 2020.7.1
Practice Makes ProgressGreat automatic backing track software similar to Band In A Box without the three hundred dollar price tag. Great features allow control of most musical variables: key, tempo, and backup band instruments. Good sound for practicing along with, possibly good enough for demo’s or live karaoke performance. Wonderful software that has been around a decade or so, with plenty of time to work out any glitches a long time ago.
The program provides animated chord charts that follow the beat, but does not provide a melody line in musical notation. I have found sheet music elsewhere online, and the keys usually match the original keys in the written out songs. A perfect practice accompanist for solo instruments. The huge library of tunes online that anyone can download into the software is amazing. The most useful musical app of all time..Version: 10.1
Incredible App, Some downfallsThis app is incredible. Not only am I able to find most songs from the real book and quickly dose load them, if the charts are wrong I can edit the chords or timing or repeats, key or tempo as needed. Not only that, when i couldn't find a song on the forums, I could create the chart as I needed it for any song. Only downfall is that I paid for the app on my mac too, and I can't seem to login on the iphone to transfer my songs to my laptop. Incredible and needed for any jazz musician or genre beyond. In a band you can practice or share these charts so everyone knows how their solo will sound over the music. Great app. When I found I could create charts I was in disbelief. Comping style sounds great between bossa and up tempo or any other style.Version: 2019.7
Great practice tool, good support.This tool is a great way to practice, and play the tune in any key. (As a keyboardist, I turn down the keyboard part and practce along from my fake book charts.) I don’t find the editing interface super intuitive, but there is online documentation and their support responds quickly to questions. The jazz list of tunes is pretty comprehensive. I wish there were more vetted rock tunes. (People post their own titles in the forums, but it is “caveat emptor”: some people who post don’t seem to know you can specify a minor key, or have screwy chords. Most recent versions let you preview before you download a song, but older version that runs on older iOS does not. (And that is the helpful tidbit I got from their support staff.) Overall, well worth the investment..Version: 10.0.1
One Of The Best Apps I OwnThis is, hands down, one of the best apps that I own. I have been playing guitar on and off for years, having much difficulty with swallowing. This app is very easy to use and has a ton of bells and whistle‘s. You can easily create a song and then easily transpose it or change the tempo with a couple of simple tabs. It allows me to practice my guitar ring in multiple keys with ease. There are a ton of different styles as well as time signatures that really add to the functionality of this app. Additionally, it seamlessly syncs with my iPhone and my iPad, so I can create a song on one device and it will easily just be there on my other device when I open it up. Fantastic job. Keep up the great work!.Version: 2019.7
Guitar practice is so easy with this app!This app has definitely helped me become a better jazz improviser. Most of the jazz songs are already available through the app and inputting a song is incredibly easy. I have a backup band that can play a song in any key, in a variety of styles. And beginners can access chords to learn the songs. I recently had a question about the app and I received a friendly answer within minutes through email support. I like not having to pay a monthly fee, but I have gladly paid for the extra styles just to support it. This is the one app I use daily. I highly recommend it..Version: 2020.12
Great as is. Encourage further development.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!.Version: 8.3.2
PLEASE ADD THIS TO THE APPI love this app and have been using it for years and it’s only gotten better and better. Best money I’ve ever spent. The only thing I have wanted for a long time but have yet to see is a loop feature. I’ve always wanted to loop certain sections of a tune to practice specific changes and I’ve had to go and record myself somewhere that I can loop it. It’s just a bit of a hassle and I’d love to be able to loop however many specific bars to practice hard spots with ease. Again, I love the app and everything you all have done with it over the years so please continue doing what you’re doing and thank you so much!.Version: 2021.1
Ten Star App!I've been using iReal Pro since the beginning... and it keeps getting better and better! Besides being a great practice aid for my trumpet, it has helped me understand song form, and how to write it. Then it helped me learn the bass guitar, and now I'm able to teach basic guitar and piano to young students. In a pinch, it is a great backup band for live performance!
I recommend this app, by name, to every musician I encounter, and am proud to give it the highest rating available! My only complaint is that I can't rate it higher, so that people can see what an exceptional app it is..Version: 8.0.1
Great, but...I have been using this app for years now and I do love it. I think there’s room for a few vital adjustments tho... one in particular that I would really like to see fixed. When a song is transposed and I want to edit chord changes, as soon as it goes into edit mode, it shows the chords in the original key the song was inputted, rather than the key I’m currently working with. This can be very frustrating in the moment for trying to make quick adjustments as I have to constantly transpose in my head to make edits. It would be nice if the edit mode always stayed in whatever key the current setting is..Version: 10.0.1
Fantastic for Jazz bad for PopThis app is incredible. I play Jazz so this is perfect for having chord charts, making practice exercises, and a whole lot more! I feel like the add on for pop and blues is pointless though, other then having a chord chart all the tunes need a melody to even sound close to the original music. I feel like working with an actual metronome would be more useful to a beginner player. An aspiring Jazz player NEEDS this app but two chord chores and weekend players might want to look elsewhere on ultimate guitar tabs or something..Version: 8.0.4
My most used app!This app does just about everything for me. It's a great practice tool, with ever more styles to play against. And I also use it as my gig book. Just bought the new Blues style pack and ran into problems installing. The support was amazingly fast and diligent. In the process I learned the program has features like looping and start from any measure. Also copy and paste. If they ever develop a way to incorporate melody?....in the meantime I will still use this app more than any other of the myriad of music apps I have..Version: 8.0.1
A great app with one flaw.This is an essential app for students and professional musicians. And not only allows you to play nearly any tune in different styles and tempos and keys, but it is also handy for writing simple chord charts. The one real problem it’s with the chart writing function.
It is not possible in this program to indicate anticipated chords, which is essential in notating popular music. If this function were improved I would give the app five stars. Another welcome improvement would be the addition of more “styles”, for which many users would gladly pay extra..Version: 2021.7.1
Indispensible tool for the guitarists woodshedThis app is now an integral part of my woodshed workflow. If you are learning jazz or perfecting it, iReal can amplify the value of your practice time.
A pro harmonica soloist recommended this app to me as a way to coordinate learning jazz standards (so we could jam, etc). I can set tempo, key, make chord substitutions, great, all the stuff in the marketing lit. Everything works as claimed.
iReal abstracts a basic rhythm section, giving me simple tap control over things which would take (potentially loads) more time to explain to musicians. I can try out ranges of possibilities, phrasings and moods at whim.
There's an active community of iRealers who continue to provide new songs and new interpretations of old ones. Thousands of songs are available. When Steely Dan's Becker passed, I was able to sound out the grief, starting with a handful of taps to download and play (along with) Deacon Blues..Version: 8.0.2
Newest updateLove the App. My husband and a bunch of other “seniors” formed a oldies rock and roll band. My husband downloaded the his app and used their music plus added some of his old..
they updated it he app and his old, senior, iPad could not use the updated version. He only had a week to go before their first big paying job!! I contacted IReel Pro and within hours Warren contacted us and told my husband how to log back on with the new version. Everything worked and he was able to play his gig with his music.
Thank you Warren!!!.Version: 10.1
Awesome on so many levelsI’ve been using this for many years through many upgraded versions. I just keeps getting better! Especially when I cannot jam with my fellow jazz musicians, this app keeps me practicing and improvising so I can feel comfortable when our jazz jam gets together. I play tenor sax as my main instrument, but also play guitar and piano. I absolutely love the chord scale diagrams! And the various styles, plus the full control of the beat speed. I highly recommend this full featured app!.Version: 2020.9
Thank you developer, your response made me change my 3 to a 5 star.I downloaded this app, because of the 100’s of reviews, I am a guitarist looking for an app that would back my tracks when doing solo work. Also wanted to use the app as a muse and as a way to WRITE original music. It didn’t do what I wanted, but that wasn’t the developers fault.
I want to thank the dev for replying to my review. They explained what the app could do, and the things that I could do to use the app with the functionality!.Version: 2019.7
I love it!! What a bargain!I’ve spent countless hours joyfully singing with this app. I’ve also been able to set keys that fit my voice like a glove. This used to be a very awkward process with a pianist, because finding the perfect key can be very time consuming. Well, it is for me. I can also email a set list and charts for upcoming gigs. This makes life so much easier. It is truly a bargain. I’ve saved hundred of dollars in rehearsal time because of this app. I recommend it to all my singer friends. Thank you!.Version: 10.0.1
Great app especially for transposersIReal Pro is probably the iPhone/iPad app I use more than any other. As a music practice tool, it’s just fantastic. Creating playlists, setting different tempos, changing key signatures — all very easily done. I’m a saxophone player, and I practice every day, often switching horns in the middle of practice. So transposing for different instruments (e.g. Bb to Eb) is pretty important; this app makes it easy. I’ve been a Band in a Box user for many years, but iReal Pro is a much easier product to use..Version: 8.3.2
Convenient and well designedThis product had a bit of a double digit cost to start but with it costing much less than a single music lesson with most music instructors.
The benefits it can give over the long term, the cost wasn’t anything compared to the convenience and benefits provided. For any music student that wants to learn pieces easier, I recommend this highly. Learn the changes across many songs, learn even further more songs more quickly..Version: 2021.2
Awesome appBought this app after seeing a few tutorials about using it to export midi data over to iOS Garageband. I tried it and it worked perfectly, allowing me to bring a song over to GB and change out instruments, change keys and tempo to fit my needs. I’ve only started exploring this app but from my initial experiment, I can see this as a SUPERB Garageband companion and to help me improve my lead guitar skills by practicing over song arrangements. Amazing app right here!.Version: 2020.12
Simply amazing!I rarely write reviews, but this app has been such an amazing tool for me as I learn jazz guitar, I can’t even imagine practicing without it! From playing along with jazz standards to just solo practice in ii-V-I lines, to the fact that you can change the tempos, keys, rhythm, all on your phone without having to plug any thing anywhere, makes this app one of the best I’ve found for anyone interested in learning to play music. I think the author deserves an away for this!.Version: 10.0.1
Can’t practice without iRealProI’m 4 years into committed practice of jazz bass guitar, and I truly don’t see how I could pursue this path without my iReal Pro. My daily practice routines ~ scale and arp cycles to chord sequences to songs ~ are fully dependent on practice tracks. The app has so many settings, I can’t really see what couldn’t be practiced with it.
Ok there’s probably a way for an adult non-genius with a good teacher and method to learn to play without iRealPro, but I can’t think what it is..Version: 8.0.4
Just one thing to say...I love this app and use it all the time for both playing along with music or writing music. My only problem is that this app doesn't have the ability to change the style mid-song. Therefore, songs like A Night in Tunisia, in which the groove changes from Latin to Swing and back, is left Latin throughout. Once that minor issue is fixed, this app will be perfect!.Version: 8.0.1
Great app.It has been invaluable for my practice. Nothing negative to say; I’ll come back and give it 5 stars when they add the ability to transpose songs to every key, including enharmonic keys. As of right now, I have to edit tracks manually if I want to be able to practice them in both sharp and flat keys. If I want to play songs written in Ab in a sharp key, such as C#, I have to rewrite any chords that have flats and make them sharps—and I have to do it for every sharp key.
Honestly though, it’s an awesome app..Version: 2021.1
My favorite practice toolI have been playing music all my life and iReal is my favorite practice tool! In the past, I used it on gigs to accompany a singer when we didn’t have a chart. I really appreciated the ability to change to any key. Nowadays, I use it as a practice tool, and it’s fantastic! It’s very comparable to Band-in-a-Box but much cheaper— and easier to use on a phone. Now, you just need to add some more musical styles..Version: 2021.1
The BEST app for a singer and piano player!I was turned onto this app back in 2012. I was just learning how to hone in my jazz playing skills and began singing with a group. This app has taught me so much not only about music theory, but how to improvise and improve my own singing skills. This app is on every single one of my computer devices and I absolutely love it! I couldn’t have gotten as far as I did without it. 👏🏼 BRAVO BRAVO iReal Pro! 👏🏼.Version: 2020.9
Great App. Upgrade tech needs a fix.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..Version: 8.2.4
Awesome ToolInvaluable learning aid! I thought this was great from the beginning. Now? It just keeps getting better and better. The developers are really committed to making this the beat thing to happen since sliced bread. So worth the small price put out. With a forum that offers up chord changes to each song you are looking for, a real community effort, accessible..Version: 2020.9
The ultimate backing track creator and moreWhat an amazing app!
I can easily write (or use prewritten) chord progressions to create backing tracks that sound great and are excellent to jam with. Changing styles, tempos, and key signature is also extremely easy.
The only thing missing from this app is an, “infinite repeat” function so I can jam for hours in end without pressing start when the repeats eventually come to an end. Right now repeats are limited to 30 times..Version: 8.3.0
Waited to ReviewI 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..Version: 8.3.2
IReal reviewA professional musician friend thought iReal Is so valuable that he bought it for me. I can learn any genre! It is everything I need to practice tunes as well as send them to my band mates in a pdf format. I love that I can create my own charts, get charts others have made, change the key, write in text and practice tunes with a metronome and more. AND it is very affordable for anyone at any level..Version: 2021.4.1
Please help!I wanted to use this app for my iphone, but I accidently bought it on my Ipad, since every app I buy on either devices it allows me to open them on both devices since I’m using the same account, is there anyway I can change the app from the Ipad to the Iphone? It really doesn’t work for me on the Ipad. Sorry for bad english..Version: 8.0.4
Great app; active communityThis has made my practicing so much more enjoyable that I actually miss it if my day is too busy. Plus there are so many charts available in the forum, that I've only had to make ones for pretty obscure tunes.
I only wish there was more flexibility in charting. As it is, you either have normal size type or squishy. Having even two levels of condensed type would get it another star..Version: 8.3.2
To IRealPro: I love youThis has become an instrumental tool to use both in the practice room and on gigs. Practicing over solo changes helped me master songs like Giant Steps and Donna Lee and has changed the way I play my horn. On gigs, it’s perfect to check the chord changes and your song set list that way you’re never off from
The rhythm section in a solo. Absolutely brilliant!.Version: 10.0.1
Get This App!!Whether you’re a serious amateur musician, semi-pro, or seasoned pro, this is a must-have app for practicing and gigging.
And if you’re a jazz musician, get this NOW! The only thing missing will be the heads, but you can download all the changes from the Real Book and practice to your heart’s content. Build set lists and take it to gigs, so long as you know the heads..Version: 10.0.0
Ireal Pro - If you don’t have it, you NEED it.If you are a musician at any level, this is the app for you! Imagine being able to practice any of hundreds and hundreds of INCLUDED songs at any tempo and in any key. Any number of choruses. Ability to select the rhythmic style. Ability to select the instrumentation of the rhythm section. Ability to dial rhythm instruments up or down - or out.
You can even enter your own song chord changes.
It’s not just a practice tool. You can hook your phone up to an amp and perform in public with this app. Make playlists.
This is one of THE most well designed, well maintained and useful apps anywhere..Version: 8.2
Great App! A little mechanical sounding...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!.Version: 8.3.1
I Real ProWhat a great program. I am a journey jazz musician. Work and life jammed me up for the past year. Back in the shed and using the program again and man has it improved. Not only do I get the changes every time they change I get a list of note changes. That is so sweet! Thanks for taking care of the little guy..Version: 8.3.0
Simple, valuable, accurate!As a performing solo/duo jazz guitarist, finding an app that's simple and predictable enough to provide backing drums that sound authentic, appealing, and correlate directly with the lead sheet, offer transpositions, stylistic variety... well that's a very tall order, but you've achieved it. Someone has listened and worked closely with real gigging musicians, thank you!.Version: 8.0.1
Can’t Imagine Being Without It!Started trumpet 7 years ago as a senior, couldn’t read a note! This App made all the difference for practice and gigs! Why play an instrument if you are not surrounded by the song’s arrangement and other instruments?! IRealPro is terrific.
And, their contact desk is amazing for your questions! Speedy reply and coherent responses.
Get it!.Version: 2020.3
Best app of its kindPro musician, music director and producer here. There's is nothing even close to this app. On gigs or for practicing playing over changes, it is untouchable. Plus, the amount of material available on the forums in every genre is always growing. One is the few apps that is worth every penny you'll pay, and more..Version: 2020.1
Essential Tool For JazzIReal Pro is an essential tool for every jazz musician, from beginners to seasoned professionals! It offers musicians an opportunity to develop soloing chops, melodies, comping and supportive lines. The incredible flexibility offered by iReal Pro makes it an excellent platform to use both in the practice room and on stage. I use iReal Pro in my daily practice routine..Version: 2021.8
Simply THE Best Teaching Tool Ever!Of all the fifty plus years I have been teaching music, iRealPro is the best teaching tool I have ever had available. It makes examples so easy to demonstrate in so many musical circumstances.
My students are being taught to be musicians not pickers and posers. IRealPro is an integral part of that process. With my online students it is a snap to send charts and the accompaniment tracks for them to practice with.
My one wish would be that there could be a conversion tool included to turn the WAV files into MP3 files for a more standardized format for emailing.
IRealPro is simply the best!! THANK YOU!!!

Bluegrass Banjo BackupI love iReal Pro and use it almost daily for bluegrass band backup during banjo practice. The bluegrass instruments for backup are very musical and it’s easy to set up the chord sheets for the tunes I practice. The tutorials are excellent. I find the app now indispensable and superior to other backup track apps I have tried..Version: 2021.2
IRealPro ReviewI use this app all the time, as a guide when I’m in a jam session and to practice. I love being able tho build flexibility by playing a song in every key, practicing both solo parts and rhythm.
I also create charts with particular arrangements so that band members or someone sitting in with the band can practice to the same chart, tempo and rhythm.
I have also used an IReal Pro chart as a backing track in a live performance if I am singing and playing flute.
I did find it difficult initially to learn how to set up a chart or add pieces to an existing chart, but once I learned that, it’s fairly easy..Version: 2021.1
Easy to use and customizableLiking the app so far.
Can you add the ability to cast through Google or Apple TV cast? It would be awesome to use home speakers and screens..Version: 8.3.2

Please enable ability to scrub along the backing tracksI have to start from the top of the chart every time I want to work on something that was just played. Please enable the ability to start the track from anywhere in song. I will definitely give five stars if this is improved..Version: 2020.7.1
Great appThis is a great app and has great flexibility, well worth the $20.Version: 2020.7.1
Phenomenal appThe timbres, chord changes, and styles are remarkably good on this app. You can also export your chart to Cubasis as well in order to use the iRealPro tracks as the foundation for more elaborate arrangements, including adding real-time instrumental and vocal parts through a mic. Outstanding support, too. Well done in every way!.Version: 2019.7
Amazing AppGreat to practice with..a rhythm section rather than a metronome and they never drag. Easy to find chord charts for free or make your own. Good chord changes..Version: 10.0.1
Great appI just wish I didn’t have to buy it twice for the Mac Version... why is Mac Version more expensive for same functionality?.Version: 2019.7
A little lackingI really want to like this app. For the most part it is good, but I find the lack of versatility in the styles disappointing. They’re like poorly done, cookie cutter arrangements. This is the reason why I end up just not using this app. It feels incomplete. I’d like to be able to mix and match style components..Version: 10.0.1
Very Useful App, Great Support TooThis is a terrific app for practising with a backup. I also met a guy who uses it with his I-pad for performance. There are lots of options for transposition, chord display, back-up styles, etc. The support is excellent. I contacted them with a problem and was amazed at how quickly I received a response. The advice was simple to understand and very thorough, so I was able to fix it right away. I definitely recommend this app!.Version: 8.3.2
Surprisingly useful!Simple. Well designed, can be used as a replacement for a fakebook, plus lots of flexibility for practicing with tempos and keys. Sounds and performances are a touch stiff, but given what it does for what it costs...wow.
When I was first learning to play 30 years ago, this would have been nothing short of a miracle.
All it needs is an option to add melodies.
(Edit) No worries. I do understand the copyright issue. I was more thinking of some kind of record / text feature that would allow users to add melodies and lyrics. I also realize that would be a significant restructuring of the application..Version: 8.3.0
Five StarsIt was wonderful and worked flawlessly three years ago, and it keeps getting better!.Version: 8.3.0
Must-Have App For All MusiciansThis is a must-have app for every practicing musician out there!.Version: 8.2.2
I REAL BookThis app is nothing short of amazing!!! I had it on my Ipod for a while and I was using it to lookup changes - then the other day I noticed the musical note at the bottom of the page and touched it and was TOTALLY BLOWN AWAY - the screen came up and I touched play -It was playing the changes with piano,drums and bass- WOWOW !!! I recommend this app 150% - a great one to help you learn new tunes with out getting the whole group together. You can customize the tunes or put in one of your own !! This is a really powerful package -- BUY IT NOW - before anyone decides to raise the price!! There are two JAZZ style packages for the player, I bought both and I am VERY IMPRESSED !!! SOO Much POWER IN a smaller package!!!
THIS has become the app I use the most --.Version: 3.0.4
A great tool!This is one of the greatest apps out there! Great functionality, an awesome practice tool, user driven....good sound quality! I've incorporated it solidly into my practice regime and have found it delightful to use and very flexible for reading, soloing, and working on rhythm. I highly recommend this app.......primarily for its jazz content and applicability..Version: 5.0.2
Killer app for jazz studentsThe addition of the play-along rhythm section and the latin styles make this a MUST HAVE app for jazz musicians, especially students who are learning to improvise. Compared to buying Band-In-A-Box, this is absolutely dirt-cheap and in many ways more useable. I love it!.Version: 3.0.4
Best $7.99 you'll ever spendThis app was already amazing before and now with 3.0 it has made it into a really fun practicing tool for learning songs. The sounds are actually pretty decent, as good as the last version of Band in a Box I owned (few years back mind you). Inspiring!.Version: 0
Why no melodies?Because THE REAL Real Book, sold by Hal Leonard, contains copywritten material. Most of the material is held under publishing, with only a few very that have fallen into the public domain due to their age. So, it's not an issue with this developer :).Version: 0

An amazing tool!This is a fantastic app. I use it for myself as a practice aid but I also use it as a teaching tool in my high school jazz band classes. The export as audio tool is especially useful to get quality rhythm section recordings into students' hands quickly and easily. The cost is worth every penny but a little too pricey to demand all of my students to purchase. I also really appreciate how adaptable iReal Pro is when editing charts. It's intuitive and easy to learn. This is in my top 5 must-have apps list!.Version: 7.0.1

Unbelievably easy, and an Awesome Deal !!!This app is very versatile in letting you choose the song key, tempo, backing tracks, and editing structure. Where else can you find editing features such as tempo changes in odd signatures, chord alterations to anything imaginable, four separate tracks for accompaniment (with timber variations for each track) and a clear as crystal sound environments with each output channel. This app allows you to save to different formats in audio (.wav, .mp3, .acc, etc.) and also allows you to get great hard copy downloads, and printing types such as .pdf and .doc, straight to your printer. This app is definitely worth the price. I wish I had heard of this sooner.
