Description

Appcompanist gives classical and musical theater singers and voice teachers full control over the world’s best accompaniment recordings, including tempo, key, melody, fermata and more. Appcompanist puts a level of control in your hand never before possible with recorded accompaniments. Transpose to any key; set any tempo; blend a melody guide track in and out in various octaves as piece plays; create additional rubato, fermatas of any length, ritardandos and accelerandos, all using simple on-screen motions that can be done with one hand while teaching or singing, and all without affecting musical quality. Top-level collaborative pianists from around the world are recording note perfect, singer-sensitive accompaniments for every aria, art song, and musical theater piece in the vocal repertoire for use in Appcompanist. Thousands of titles are already available and hundreds are added every month. Features: Transpose instantly up or down 11 half-steps from the originally recorded key. Turn a melody guide track on or off any time during play, adjust the level of melody you hear against the full accompaniment, and choose to hear melody in one of three octaves. Hold and sustain the accompaniment, then bring it back in with perfect accuracy for musical pauses, cadenzas, recitatives, or other times in which a fermata is indicated. Check next melody pitch when stopped and start in perfect sync with the accompaniment every time. Adjust tempo during play to suit any interpretation or set a new tempo with the tempo slider. Filter and sort the library by genre, composer, language, voice type, greater work, title, and more to find the perfect piece. Create and edit playlists and share songs and playlists with other users. All recordings are played and quality-controlled by the some of the world’s top collaborative pianists and coaches.

    I have been having so much fun singing with Appcompanist, it has helped renewed my joy in singing and my willingness to practice. Knowing that I have all the accompaniment for my songs PLUS melody track if needed, is awesome. Being able to change keys and tempo INSTANTLY is so cool and helpful. I am still learning how to use the fermata button, but I think it is so great that the feature is there. The catalogue of songs is extensive (opera art song, musicals, etc) and I emailed the developers to get some spirituals added particularly those by Moses Hogan. They were super responsive and helpful and they said they would prioritize adding those songs. The app sits on my iPhone, but once I connect my phone to an external speaker, it sounds like I have a pianist right in the room! I have been practicing with the app and I plan to perform with it this Sunday (10/29). I have been looking for something like this for a long time. Check it out, it rocks! Woo hoo!!

    I’m a private voice teacher, and although I took piano lessons many years ago, my chops aren’t what they should be. This app has been a game changer! The pianists are terrific, and I love having the ability to transpose songs. Also, the melody only feature will save me time! Love this app and am excited for more songs!
