Capo touch helps you learn to play the songs in your music collection by ear. By slowing down songs without changing their pitch, detecting chords automatically, and with its many other sophisticated features, Capo touch has you learning to play more songs in less time.

Here are just a few of the (many!) features that get our users excited:

• GET THE CHORDS: Capo analyzes the songs you load by "listening" to them, and then displays all the chords alongside the song during playback. In addition to naming the chords, Capo can show diagrams for guitar, ukulele, banjo, mandolin and bass. When Capo misses a chord or gets it wrong, you can correct the detected chords easily and Capo saves your changes along with the song. You can specify alternate chord voicings, and you can even choose to display left-handed chord diagrams. Rock on, southpaws!

• CHANGE THE SPEED: Capo can slow down (and speed up) your favorite music without changing its pitch, so you can practice with the recording at a comfortable pace. Its high-quality time stretching engine ensures that your music sounds great at any speed.

• ...OR STOP TIME COMPLETELY: If you lay a finger down on the waveform during playback, Capo touch puts you in direct control of the timeline while the sound keeps on playing. This helps you hear quickly-played notes clearly, and gives you a chance to listen carefully to how the notes in a phrase connect to one another.

• CHANGE THE KEY: Quickly transpose your music to a different key so you can play or sing along with it comfortably. The chords and chord diagrams update immediately to reflect the new key as you drag the pitch slider.

• MUTE / SOLO INSTRUMENTS & VOCALS: With Capo's cutting-edge isolation effect, focus on the parts of a song you are trying to learn by simply adjusting a few sliders. Solo the sound of a single instrument/vocal to hear it more clearly, or mute it to create a custom backing track.

• SAVE CHANGES: Capo saves all your work (edited chords, regions, playback speed, etc.) automatically as you’re learning. When you return to the song again, you’re ready to pick up where you left off. Projects are compatible with Capo 3 for macOS (sold separately), and can be synced via iCloud.

• ACCESS *ALL* YOUR MUSIC: Rather than hiding or displaying errors for the songs you discovered on Apple Music, Capo touch helps you quickly buy them on iTunes so you can start your learning immediately. And for those tracks you already own that are stuck in the cloud, Capo can take you directly to the Music app to download them quickly.

The free trial download has the following limitations:

• Only 60 seconds of audio playback is allowed per session, but you will have full access to slowing, audio transposition, our isolation engine, and chords during the evaluation time

Capo touch Pro ($9.99 yearly):

An active subscription is required for full access to the features in Capo touch. This includes:

• Removing the 60-second audio playback limit per song
• Full access to the automatically-detected chords
• Editing and transposing chords for guitar, bass, ukulele, mandolin, and banjo

In addition, you will also gain access to any new subscriber-only features as they are added to Capo touch in the future. And we've got a lot of those planned, and in active development!

What's New

We spent a lot of time reworking the music processing pipeline that powers Capo’s chord, beat, and key detection. This work should improve the overall accuracy of Capo’s results, and it paves the way for some features that we plan to add in the coming months.

To help celebrate these improvements, we’ve expanded the trial to allow access to the chord detection results and increased the playback timer to 60 seconds!

Note: If you’re running an older device, you may notice that it now takes longer to process songs when they are first imported—Capo’s doing a *lot* more detailed analysis than before, so this is to be expected. We hope to improve this in future updates, so stay tuned!


• When operating in trial mode, Capo now indicates the remaining playback time and provides a brief explanation of the trial limitations

Bug Fixes:

• The “Capo Needs Your Help” window no longer gets stuck after trying to download songs from the cloud
• When browsing through your music collection, the search bar should no longer get lost after navigating into one of the Albums, Artists, or Playlist search results
• We’ve restored the ability to rename regions—sorry about that!
• On iPad devices with keyboards, the play/pause and region shortcut keys have been fixed
• With songs that have too-long titles, the back button should no longer be obscured
• Audio controls on the lock screen should be working correctly once again
• Tapping outside the Control Strip's quick selection menu will now dismiss it
• When switching outside of Capo to another app, and then back, the chord sounds are no longer muted
• After loading a project that had muted chords set in the Mixer, new projects will no longer have muted chords
