WATERLOO, Ontario - SuperMegaUltraGroovy has updated Capo to include full support for iPad as well as improved graphics for current generation iPhone and iPod touch. Now available now in the iTunes App Store, Capo 1.1 allows musicians to choose music from their iTunes library and learn how to play it by ear.
â€œSince itâ€™s release on the iOS platform, musicians can use Capo behind the drum kit, to the piano, into the practice room, and to rehearsal,â€? says Chris Liscio, the companyâ€™s founder. â€œWith support for the iPad, musicians can learn music on various sized devices to fit their needs â€“ the desktop version in the studio, at home, or in the dorm room, and the mobile version for use on the iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad.â€?
Capo 1.1 allows musicians to slow the music down
to a tempo thatâ€™s comfortable for them to play, change the pitch to match their tuning or range, insert markers, and set loops, helping to quickly learn specific passages or riffs. Capo can load songs directly from the iTunes library or from the currently playing track in the iPod application. The iPadâ€™s larger screen makes it easy for two musicians to use the app at one, great for bands as well as teachers and students.
Funk, Jazz, and R&B bass player extraordinaire Rodney â€œSkeetâ€? Curtis, currently on tour with Maceo Parker said, "With this great app I was finally able to go back and learn some of my old solos,â€? said â€œWell worth the price if you serious about digging into that solo or riff that you've always wanted to take a crack at."
Capo 1.1 is a universal app, so customers who have bought version 1.0 will get iPad functionality for free. New customers will enjoy iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad functionality by purchasing the single app.
Capo 1.1 is available now on the iTunes App Store for $19.99. Visit http://capoapp.com for more information.
