Sheet music

An iOS device can help you locate, store, and organize thousands of pages of sheet music, display them on a music stand, and turn pages for you so you don’t have to take your hands off your instrument. Music Binder ($1.99) is a simple song-sheet organizer mat supports PDF files, automatically indexes your song tides, and matches song tide and author names to corresponding audio files in your iTunes library.

Scorecerer for die iPad (Deskew Technologies, $19.99) lets you import and organize scans in a variety of formats (JPG, PDF, TIFF, etc.), then straighten the graphic, remove the border, and annotate and highlight passages. Page turns are fast and can be done manually by touching die screen or via MIDI over Bluetooth. You can even rearrange pages and program page repeats.

Guitarists who need pro-level flexibility in playback and display capabilities of MusicXML-format files should check out SeeScore (dolphin-com.co.uk, $16.99).

The app lets you add lyrics, import and export common file types, and it supports MIDI and file sharing.

Education apps for the guitar are plentiful. Young beginners will enjoy Wildchords (ovelin.com, $9.99) for iPad, an interactive game for learning how to play guitar. It covers tuning, chords, and songs, which you’ll use to hypnotize and capture animals in order to move up to the next level. Additional scenes are available for purchase.

Fret Surfer Guitar Trainer (Jason Neufeld, free) provides games that help you learn the notes on each fret and string in user-selected tunings (standard, DADGAD, open G, etc.). Southpaws will appreciate the app’s left-handed mode.

Displaying tablature, chord charts, and an interactive fingerboard, LickByNeck (lickbyneck.com, free) is a series of virtual instructional songbooks mat covers a wide variety of styles, including Fingerstyle, Ted Greene Guitar, Asian Solo Guitar, World Solo Guitar, and others. You get a limited number of downloadable songs per day, but the interface lets you adjust the tempo or step through each measure to examine specific fingering. A higher-level app for learning and woodshedding is Songsterr Guitar Tabs (songster.com, $19.99), which has its own site of quality – controlled guitar tabs. The app includes a chromatic tuner, selectable count-in options, loop points, and half speed playback.

Recording apps

Whether you use an external mie or audio interface, you’ll want an app that makes it easy to record high-quality audio files. Let’s start with Audiofile Engineering’s FiRe 2 Field Recorder (audiofile-engineering.com, $5.99), an easy-to-use, 16-bit, 48 kHz stereo recorder with a waveform display and overdub capabilities. Its pro-level editor includes markers and regions, Bezier fades, normalization, and DC offset removal. Notably, the app can add high-quality input processing, licensed from iZotope, and it shares files via iTunes and Dropbox.

Tascam PCM Recorder (free) is simpler to use, capture stereo WAV files, and accepts input from the built-in mie or a device input plugged in to the connector dock. Features include input metering, a limiter, a low cut filter, EQ, and SoundCloud integration. For multitrack recording, Tascam has re-created its cassette multi-tracker for the iPad with Portastudio ($2.99). Like the original, each track offers basic high and low EQ controls and panning, which you use when mixing down to a stereo file.

Sonoma Wire Works FouiTrack ($4.99) is a feature rich four-track recorder that lets you bounce tracks to get higher track counts. The app creates CDquality files and includes a metronome, effects (including TaylorEQ, which is optimized for Taylor guitars that include the company’s Expression System electronics), file import, and Wi-Fi synchronization with your computer DAW. If you have an iPad and want an eight-track recorder with similar features you should check out Sonoma’s outstanding StudioTrack ($9.99) app.

If you want a pro-level DAW for your iDevice, you have two choices. Harmonicdog’s MultiTrack DAW ($9.99) records up to eight tracks at a time (on the iPad; two tracks on the iPhone) with file resolutions up to 24-bit/96 kHz. The app is expandable to 24 tracks and it imports a variety of file types, offers dynamics and time-based effects, provides multiple undo/redo levels, and supports, iTunes file sharing, Wi-Fi, and SoundCloud. Best of all, MultiTrack DAW works with a wide variety of USB interfaces.

WaveMachine Auria (auriaapp.com; $49.99) for the iPad does just about everything a computer-based DAW can do. It offers an astounding 48 channels of playback and can record 24 tracks simultaneously when you use a USB interface and the Apple Camera Connection Kit. It supports files up to 24-bit, 96 kHz and runs VST effects (some of which are In-App Purchases). Multi-track recording on the iPad doesn’t get any better than this!
