Apple Design Award Winner

“I have been wishing for this software for years. It’s incredibly useful, whether I’m charting my own songs for the players who join me, or discovering exactly what is being played on a recording I love. So happy that the future has arrived!”
—Kristian Bush of Sugarland, Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist

Capo 3 is a revolutionary tool that helps you learn the music in your iTunes library. By slowing your music, automatically detecting chords and quickly generating guitar tablature using the detailed spectrogram, Capo 3’s award-winning capabilities let you learn to play your songs faster than ever.

Capo will change the way you learn to play music. The audio-to-note approach will soon seem so natural to you that you will no longer regard your favorite bands’ music as inaccessible to play yourself. You can learn to play any music you have as a recorded audio file, whether an mp3, m4a, wav, or aiff file. This is the future of learning to play music. It’s no wonder Capo won a prestigious Apple Design Award.

With Capo you can learn songs in an intuitive and flexible way. The automatic chord detection appears quickly when you load a song from iTunes, and then updates instantly as you change the key, place a capo on your instrument, or switch tunings.

But there’s more to what musicians can now see in the music they’re learning! Capo makes it easy to learn the details of a music performance using the visual representation of frequencies in an audio file called a “Spectrogram.” Swipe across notes as you listen to the recording to instantly generate guitar tablature. No more searching online for tabs for your favorite new song – or classic song!

And the spectrogram is not only for quick transcriptions. See every nuance in the performance—the note bends, slurs, and vibrato—to visually reinforce what you are hearing.

World-class musicians are praising Capo’s flexibility, speed, and reliability for learning and experimenting with music. Whether used as a problem solver in their day-to-day work of learning music for a gig or just to grow as a musician, Capo is inspiring some of today’s top musicians in the industry.

“Capo is a remarkable app. I have been teaching guitar for many years and I often spend too much of the lesson time transcribing songs from MP3s my students bring to the lesson that they want to learn. Capo is an amazing tool as it will generate chord progressions from mp3 files quickly so I can spend the lesson time on chord voicing, solo's and nuance—a huge advantage for the students and for me. I can't wait for my students to start bringing Capo files to the lessons so we can spend all of our time creating—not copying.”
—Mark Altecruse, Guitar teacher and member of Hex Orchestra

"I've used Capo for the last three major world tours during rehearsal to reference parts and program sounds for players that would be played live. I was always in it! It's just so quick and fast to slow the song down and change the key. The band members that I've turned on to Capo loved it! If they weren't working on show music, they were using it grab licks off records of their heroes."
—Joe Wolfe, tour tech/audio programmer for Madonna, Alicia Keys, Earth Wind & Fire, The Eagles, Whitney Houston and more
