Rene Ritchie's Pick of the week on MacBreak Weekly 411 is Capo touch by SuperMegaUltraGroovy, Inc. This is the iOS version of the award-winning Mac app, Capo. This app helps you learn to play any song in your iTunes library quickly. It automatically detects chords from any recorded audio file and shows you how to play them. It can even display a myriad of chord shapes in various tunings.
There's a lot of clever intelligence used by Capo to make it easier to learn songs. It employs a high quality time stretching engine to slow down music without affecting its pitch. It lets you change the key of your songs with a pitch slider, and it updates the chords to reflect the key change instantly. You can also modify panning, adjust a 10-band graphic equalizer, and apply vocal reduction to help isolate the parts of the song you want to learn.
Capo changes the way you learn how to play music by ear. It's been praised by world-class professional musicians, and you can read the testimonials at capoapp.com/testimonials. Capo touch is currently $4.99, which is 50% off for its special limited time launch sale. It's a universal app for both iPhone and iPad.
