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
Performance tracks too!I’ve used this app since the early versions and it always surprises me. First off it let’s me create simple, readable chord charts and share them effortlessly. The backing instruments give you flexibility to easily practice and rehearse. While most of my use of this app is as a practice or teaching tool - I also use it to create basic backing tracks for live performance. I play lap steel - so all I really need is a bass line, and a simple rhythm instrument to back me up as I play the melodies. Once I get a chart working live - if I want better quality for a show etc. I’ll do a more pro track in my DAW with real instruments. But for many songs, doing simple gigs - this app works fine. The endings are not great, and the bass lines get a bit boring - but overall it works ok. If you construct a good chart with proper repeats, and pick a good style for the song etc. - the tracks work really well. I like the Rhodes piano, vibes and bass along with the Jazz styles. Love being able to export .pdf to share charts with the band..Version: 2021.12
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
Don’t like the “stereo piano” in this edition.Please bring back the piano that you had before this update. The new “stereo piano” sounds distant and not as good. I will re-rate this if you can give us the option to use either piano at the least. I also note that some of the chords or inversions don’t sound quite right sometimes. Perhaps this can be looked into as well? Otherwise, I really enjoy the program.
Thank you for the response. Primarily, I’m not really happy with the “embellishment” feature. It seems to over embellish the jazz chords every single time the chord is played, if it was more randomized and had slightly better voice leading I think it would be a nice addition. Perhaps you could make it a sliding scale instead of “on” or “off”. Maybe it’s asking too much. The program is excellent regardless. I will re-rate to a 5 as I think it’s a valuable program for practicing songs. Thanks for listening..Version: 2021.12
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
Made me moneyI am a professional pianist and use to carry all my fake books to a gig. Now all I use is this app. All I need to do is remember the melody. Most of the time I have singer so it’s not a problem. One time some people from Brazil came in. They requested songs I never heard of. I asked them, “if I play the chords, can you sing the melody?” They said yes, so I showed them the Brazilian songs that I had downloaded. They sang, loved it and gave me $100 tip. I have many similar stories. There are so many books that users have uploaded. Most of them are checked by the developer. They are very good at “talking with you and helping or suggesting tips. Every professional musician that I know has this app. What’s even better is that I have separate Play Lists for each singer. Even if they all sing the same song, the play list has it in their key with their arrangement..Version: 8.2.1
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
A perfect appI’ve used this app forever. Like most of my adult life, 10+years. I used to play upright bass professionally. This app has got me through hundreds of pick up gigs- you know the type jazz musicians. All you hear is “Hey come play”, and when you show up to the gig they just start calling tunes from 100 years ago like you should have it in your blood. This app let me keep up and sound great with that kind of gig. A quick download and you have changes to a ton of standards at your disposal. Only way this could be better is if it had the melody loaded in.
For practice it’s great. The rhythm section can be pretty stale but for working your way through changes at various speeds, 😘👌🏼(chefs kiss). You can alter changes easily. And mixing out instruments is cool, I can practice walking lines.
I use it even when writing songs. It’s pretty easy to make a lead sheet off these, including exporting to pdfs in case you need to pass to a friend. It’s great to have a band at your disposal to hear your parts too. There are some good grooves as well.
Honestly the best money I’ve spent on an app as a jazz musician, maybe on any music tech stuff. Thanks guys for all the help over the years!.Version: 2023.2
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 AppIt is a great app for sure, practice tool. I suggest to allow to write some rhythm notation very necessary for intros, for example: sometimes you have to play songs you have never played right on the spot, the rhythmic notation will do the miracle. My last suggestion all my students practice with this software but there is room to improve, we need that ireal be compatible with realbooks, again; "a song request we haven't heard", we need to playthe melody. Guys due respect, this is the 21th century and probably the last one. We need you to search for better software sound and more possibilities for the working musicians. THANK YOU SO MUCH. I believe you have released a great practice tool, and the best part there is lots of room for improvement…
Sincerely RBarak..Version: 2021.12
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
IReal Pro, a real winner!I’ve been using iReal Pro for a couple of years now on my solo piano jazz gigs. Solo gigging can be a bit boring and tedious at times, especially when the music your playing is requested to be purely background music at corporate/special events.
IReal Pro has given me a bit of spice to my music for the average listener, in addition to working with a metronome type tool, which is always good way to improve your time.
I love the ease of downloading tunes and / or creating new tune arrangements with this app!
The ease of changing the key is convenient on the fly when needed.
Setting up play lists for special events is super handy in addition to having quick access to a singer’s song list that may have “out of the ordinary” keys.
There are many great reasons to use iReal Pro, but one great plus is the quick response to customer support (in real time) to questions one may have when using this great app.
Thank you, iReal Pro!.Version: 2023.2
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
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
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
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
Pretty goodThe app is fine but may bug out on you. Often it insists that I have the bars arranged incorrectly even when I have them in the proper format, which is irritating when I’m trying to get a certain harmonic rhythm. Aside from this the language the app uses for displaying chords is not very user friendly. I try to understand what info they provide but I’m still yet to understand how I would go about getting certain voicings like augmented 6th and chords without the 5th. But the app is good for getting rough ideas, practicing, and familiarizing yourself with different and common styles of music..Version: 2023.6
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
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
6 out of 5 StarsHave to admit I’ve had the app for a few years, just diving into it but it is terrific. I’ve played in various groups over the years but starting a jazz team with a singer and me on piano.
Nice to have a variety of back up musicians for live shows. It is indeed terrific for practice and learning new charts but the back up music sounds great through a sound system.
Great performance and great value..Version: 2022.2
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
More than you areThis is my 2nd review. Prior to this, I rated
iRealpro 5 stars; now I like to change that rating to 5.5 to 6 stars. I love all that is possible with iReal. However, when an issue came up I submitted the problem in the evening thinking the response would get to me within a day or two. Instead, when morning arrived upon waking up, there it was; the answer to my question. Many thanks to the iReal crew..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
IReal ProOne of the greatest “tools” for gigging and getting vocals and tunes lined up for gigs and performances… great practice tool too … just super just wish I could find a copy for my old iPad replacement… someone stole my old iPad and when I bought a refurbished older one APPLE wouldn’t let me get a copy for it so I’m using my iPhone… but they should make older versions of the apps available 😳.Version: 2023.6
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
Excellent appThe Realbook cost about $45 when I first bought it in 1980. The IReal is very inexpensive for what it gives you. The developers covered all the items to make it versatile and user friendly. Forums and customer support are top notch. Don’t think about buying it- buy it. I’d pay $100 for this app if it cost that much..Version: 2021.12
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
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
Why not make it the best?I love this app. It can use a few more features to put it as a very versatile tool. Tempo change on selected measures, style changes on selected measures, complete stop(no overtone) would make this the most used in practice session and gig. Why not add these simple functions. If anything the latest version has a more confusing interface..Version: 2022.2
No 12/8 blues?5 stars for entire app however I purchased the blues set and liked what was there except…the slow blues had the lamest non slow blues bass lines. Seriously? Get someone who knows about the blues to program. If it was an off the shelf product I would want a refund. Hopefully they fix this. 0 stars.Version: 2023.2
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
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
IReal Pro reviewThis is one of the best music apps out there. I use it as a gigging pro for practice and performance! No more carrying around those bulky fake books to gig..Version: 8.2.1
CoolPerfect to frick around !!.Version: 2023.6
Add An Open Swing Feel OptionOpen 1/8 playback is cool, you should add an open swing one..Version: 2023.6
The best app for instrumentalists and vocalistsProbably the most expensive but most worthwhile app I’ve ever downloaded. It’s. must have for gigging musicians, esp for jazz..Version: 2022.9
IReal observationsIt will be super sick when iReal includes melodies.
Starting a chart from scratch also is a bit cumbersome.
Also, once you’ve transposed a tune, and then you want to edit it, it will revert to the key it was in before, so that too is a bit cumbersome.
Otherwise, thumbs up..Version: 2023.2
Salsa Styles do not show upAfter buying the Addon Salsa, the style do not show up in the Styles menu… why?.Version: 2023.2
Un incontournable !IReal Pro est vraiment un incontournable pour pratiquer, notamment tous les standards de jazz qui s’y importent facilement grâce aux Forums iReal Pro. On peut aisément modifier les accords ou créer nos propres « charts », qu’on peut ensuite imprimer ou partager. Le support technique est excellent et l’application évolue constamment, grâce aux suggestions des utilisateurs.
Honnêtement, si iReal Pro n’existait pas, il faudrait l’inventer !.Version: 2022.7
Backing Tracks QuestionReceived excellent service from the help centre who answered my question in less than 2 hours fully and accurately
I would be lost without this amazing tool.Version: 2022.2
Can’t Do Without ItPerfect tool for practicing, making simple charts and having fun! Worth every penny and more!.Version: 2021.12
I love this app but…Can you add a feature that when there is an error with open ended repeats or bar lines, that is becomes highlighted to make it easier to fix the problem? Sometimes, it’s not visually clear what the problem is and it’s something that frustrates me..Version: 2022.2
Great appGreat app, chordal comping is accurate, could be more experimental, generative sequencing, etc, great app.Version: 2021.4
Fine app but...Don't get too reliant on this tool, your (a) band won't play/sound the same. iReal may cause a false sense of confidence.Version: 8.3.0
My improv skills are improving!This app has been an absolute godsend for practicing jazz improv for my university audition that I have coming up. My one suggestion would be to add a note-taking feature so that I can write ideas down..Version: 2021.4
BravoUn outil formidable pour mes pratiques musicales..Version: 2021.1
A must for all musicians!IRealPro without a doubt is best app for any musician. I would be lost without it. It has all the tools you need to play like a pro. All the pros use it as well..Version: 2020.7.1
Great !Easy to use. My portable band that I use daily..Version: 2020.7.1
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
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
Learn fastThis app trains your mind and your ear..Version: 7.0.1
Excellent chart/practice systemSupport very good. Learning to edit charts now..Version: 7.0.1
AwesomeGreat for jamming along to, especially with transpose and tempo change. Love it.Version: 7.0.1
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
Amazing AppDoes everything you'd want it to do. Legendary for learning comping/melody/improvisation for any tune. Pop, blues, reggae all included too if you look hard enough. Sweet that you can hear you own sing with a who band..Version: 7.0.1
One of the best apps everThis a great app. I practice with it. I use it to make chord charts of my original songs. It use it to write those songs. Support is there if you need it, although I've only ever had to use it once. This is a great app..Version: 7.0.1
A must...Absolutely worth the price of admission! I use it on my iPad so I can practice anywhere. Very impressed with this app mainly because it's so totally versatile and practicle..Version: 7.0.1
