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.

  • Excellent way to learn and practice new music

    I bought this app at the recommendation of my voice teacher. This is a wonderful way to learn new music - and with accompaniment. I love the ability to change key - an excellent way to determine the best key for my voice. They are VERY accommodating. I requested they add 9 songs by Charles Ives that were not yet available. They replied that they would fulfill my request as soon as possible. Two weeks later all 9 were had been added!!
  • Game Changer!

    My piano skills aren’t fabulous to begin with and now I’m dealing with arthritis that’s making playing more than vocalise painful. The ability to isolate or layer the melody on the accompaniment, to change keys or tempo has just been great! Plus the support team is responsive; they’re always adding new material! For less than half the cost of one lesson per month, get it!
  • Fantastic!

    I recently began a recurring gig with a chamber choir, with some solo work, and I perform in a lot of musical theater. This app is going to change my life for the better when it comes to rehearsal. It has wonderful, seamless functionality. It will not replace the accompanist for performances, but auditions and rehearsal just got a lot easier!
  • Worth the cost

    If you are a private voice teacher who isn’t fully competent on piano this app is amazing! You can alter keys, tempo and even octaves of the accompaniment. Owners are very responsive to repertoire requests and overall it was money well spent!!
  • Amazing!

    I have to say that for ANY vocalist, this app is a MUST HAVE! If any songs or arias are missing, I’ve emailed and the songs were added! Money well spent! Thank you!
  • Wow!

    Admittedly I was on the fence due to the app not containing a good portion of recital rep that I needed. After an email exchange with the developers, I’m glad I decided to give it a chance. This app is fantastic and works as advertised, and is a perfect rehearsal tool for those of us that are keyboard challenged. In addition, I requested a number of songs be added a few weeks ago. I received notification from the app that new songs were added, and it was half of the songs I listed. Immediately after, I get an email from the developers telling me that they were added and that the rest of my requests would be taken care of within the week. AMAZING customer service, and worth every penny.

    Finally an app that you can use to easily transpose.
  • Needs more arias for Dramatic voices.

    Hey! Firstly before critiquing? Freaking amazing app!!! One slight suggestion however... I’ve noticed that the types of arias offered are very eclectic. While I appreciate this very much, I feel like there should be more availability of arias for those with larger voices; specifically Verdi baritone. There are a wonderful handful of arias, but perhaps adding them to the database would be happening soon? I really think this app, when fully matured with all of the standard repertoire will be even more groundbreaking than it already is! Bravo!
  • Convenient and Wonderful

    Can’t say enough about this app! I have a concert coming up and have had to learn some music quickly and don’t have a lot of time/money for a lot of coachings and rehearsals with a pianist. This has been a really easy tool that has helped me to not only learn a new piece at my pace, but to fully prepare myself for when I finally work on it with a coach or in rehearsal. Not only does this app help me save time and money, but it helps me learn the music accurately and effectively.
  • So excited about this!

    This app has been working flawlessly for me. Have been exploring it all week. The pianists have done a first rate job with the very extensive repertoire. What an incredibly easy way to learn new songs. Like having a live-in accompanist. Thrilled that they are adding new pieces daily. A subscription to this service is well worth the price. Hooked up to my bluetooth speakers it sounds incredible.
