Inaccurate chord progressions

Too many non musicians creating inaccurate songs.
Awesome app. Add more rhythm styles!!

iRealPro is a MUST!
by VeryUnsatisfied1282132 on 2020/11/12 17:47
This app is an ESSENTIAL to ANY jazz musician (or any musician for that matter). This app works FLAWLESSLY and provides me with all the tools I need to grow as a musician. The only complaint I have is that I wish the interface looked more aesthetically modern, however the functionality of the app makes up for this! 1000/10 would recommend!
IN-APP PURCHASES ARE BROKEN 11-11-2020
by hotelsinger on 2020/11/11 21:16
I bought the Blues style. Successful In-App purchase. I have the latest app update. Nothing I try pulled up those riffs. I have spent an hour, trying everything I could think of, but they won’t appear. What gives??? I saw that people were having this problem back in 2015! This still hasn’t been fixed?? Help me with this and I’ll give 5 stars.
Where is duolingo for this, lol
by atx920 on 2020/10/31 18:44
I do not understand why everybody raves about this. I have no idea how to decipher these gobbledygook charts. No lyrics no nothing. Just a bunch of slashes and triangles and stuff. Get guitar tapp, it at least has the lyrics and where the changes are. This is terrible. I guess they just assume you magically already know "chart-ese"
iReal Pro
by Billebud on 2020/10/30 06:05
Love this app so far, great practice tool, and I think there is much that I haven’t discovered. My only reservation thus far is that you can’t back up a few seconds to play a part over. I know the songs usually repeat, but having that feature would be a great plus.
Excellent !
by jaymanjammin on 2020/10/22 15:14
This has consistently been one of my best apps in my phone for a few years now. As a practicing tool, this app puts purpose into my practice and it’s fun! I love the options from creating to the forums, the styles and the EQ. This is a musicians app. Thank you developers!
Well supported
by moleskine timepage on 2020/10/10 17:59
An incredible app that has aged very well. Love that the developer has continued to support and modernize this app. Great work!

Simply THE Best Teaching Tool Ever!
by PCotn on 2020/10/03 11:24
Of all the fifty plus years I have been teaching music, iRealPro is the best teaching tool I have ever had available. It makes examples so easy to demonstrate in so many musical circumstances. My students are being taught to be musicians not pickers and posers. IRealPro is an integral part of that process. With my online students it is a snap to send charts and the accompaniment tracks for them to practice with. My one wish would be that there could be a conversion tool included to turn the WAV files into MP3 files for a more standardized format for emailing. IRealPro is simply the best!! THANK YOU!!! Dr. Pat Corn Sevierville, TN
Great app, great support
by Panama Piano Man on 2020/09/25 16:40
The app is sensational, and the support is beyond sensational. They are prompt to reply AND they offer real solutions. Highly recommended.
Excellent app
by Dean N on 2020/09/09 21:39
For the money, an excellent way to practice with an instant backing track. If you play different instruments, it can quickly transpose for you. Also very useful to transpose keys on the fly to accommodate singers. One suggestion: Please allow the app to open to a favorite playlist
The best App for musicians
by Botronics on 2020/08/22 15:38
Highly recommended for working musicians, students or teachers. I have been using this App for almost four yeas now, the best choice that I ever made....200% like ++++++
Great app!
by Si Perkoff on 2020/08/08 01:57
I’ve had and sporadically used this app for years. I have only come to LOVE it during this Covid-19 shut-down. I use the app a lot to have fun playing with bass & drums (I’m a Jazz pianist). It is an amazingly musical tool. Big praise for the originator and the programmers and the Support Staff. MANY THANKS! Si
Indespendible !!!!!
by Joey Delaney on 2020/07/22 12:18
Man, I’ve never been particularly adept at the tech side of music although we all strive to improve. I admit it, as a composer/player I tend to be impatient! This app serves the purpose of the composer SO WELL. Have a melody and chord changes in my head! Bap! I lay it down, play with grooves, tempos, new harms. and bring the composition to fruition in know time flat! As a pianist, I merely deck the onboard cat and have the most AMAZING tool to craft a composition! Also, by running it around through all keys, newer added ideas seam to materialize! And although I know my theory, writing a lead sheet would deflate my immediate artistic enthusiasm! Hats Off to iRealPro! It’s a tool for the intermediate to the most advanced jazz musician. And what a practice aid! I insist any students I may take get it immediately!! It’s as valuable as the Real Book was in Boston almost 60 years ago, only 10 times more useful!!! Joe Delaney
Piano and Drums Sounds
by Logobar on 2020/07/10 22:02
I love the app but the only piano sound I like and use is the Rhodes 2, also the drums sound quality is beneath the app. Any room for improvement?
son montunos
by 041577pazpazponROBERT on 2020/07/08 21:32
I am a Latin musician, the son montunos rhythms in the ireal pro app, previously the percussion is better, and with this new update they are sounding like the 80's casio keyboar. return the rhythms back please
Outstanding, reponsive support
by nitnorf on 2020/06/22 07:36
Pleased with quick and thorough response to my inquiries. A very useful app for musicians and songwriters,
Great app!!
by Greg at the piano on 2020/06/11 22:31
I’m an advanced beginner. IRealPro has dramatically accelerated my progress. I use it every practice session. Easy to use, easy to modify for my needs. I highly recommend it.
IRealPro
by Alice-O on 2020/06/11 11:49
I have recently learned about iRealPro and I am totally thrilled with it. It has an amazing range of music. It’s flexible and user friendly. It’s definitely helped me with my practicing and playing. And the tech support is also great. I highly recommend it.
Nothing. Better. Period.
by Trgareau on 2020/05/29 12:48
This app is so useful for any musician. It’s like having a group of friends ready to jam whenever you are. It’s education. It’s inspirational. It’s everything you need, and more! I use it every day :)
Great for practice or performance!
by dmfelice on 2020/05/27 23:40
Our band been using this app for several years, both for practice and for performance. Combined with online services like Chordify, it allows you to create a track to play along with for virtually any song that you can find online or that you have in your own music library.Plus, download playlists from the forum and you could immediately have your own song library. Highly recommended!

When playing in Bb I have to transpose 1tone.If it,s in G I have to play in A.How do I fix this?
Not There
by Robinrdcs on 2020/05/12 12:53
I have never spent this much on any app. I want worship songs, modern and old, and they are NOT there. I have looked for 5 songs, to play along with on my alto sax, and NONE are there. It is very hard to get around and not easy to use when you do. I am very disappointed considering it came recommend from a good source.
Exceptional tool
by FlugelBob on 2020/05/08 22:58
I have spent endless hours playing these tunes and it doesn’t ever get old. Change the tempo, change keys or you can record your performances to listen to and critique. Just great!!!
Can’t Imagine Being Without It!
by Power of habit on 2020/05/07 19:56
Started trumpet 7 years ago as a senior, couldn’t read a note! This App made all the difference for practice and gigs! Why play an instrument if you are not surrounded by the song’s arrangement and other instruments?! IRealPro is terrific. And, their contact desk is amazing for your questions! Speedy reply and coherent responses. Get it!
Powerful "teacher" and "companion" -- and tool
by Pasgran2 on 2020/04/28 03:45
This is vital for any musician -- endless features intuitively put together and elegant in its simplicity and utility.
iReal Pro is essential
by Jeff, SUVJ on 2020/04/27 20:22
As a college jazz/contemporary voice teach, this app has become my #1 support tool. We’re using the record/share option for our final jury submissions during this crazy time of physical distancing. The BEST, most utilized app on my iPad and iPhone.
Beware...
by Don Humungo on 2020/04/25 02:38
This app is not only expensive offering what similar apps offer BUT they also to squeeze more money out of you wherever possible. Bought this app with the intention of being able to use it on my Mac as well as my phone. If you buy it on ios it will only work there, if you buy on mac it will only work there. You will have to spend another $20 to get it on that other devise. The fact that this app is this much at its base and you cant use it on other devices is a big disappointment not to mention greedy. Furthermore, the layout of the app is confusing and designed poorly. You will waste lots of time navigating in and out of the Byzantine corridors of this app to find what you really want actually costs another 5 bucks...
Best app of its kind
by Steve-O-2-0 on 2020/04/23 17:00
Pro musician, music director and producer here. There's is nothing even close to this app. On gigs or for practicing playing over changes, it is untouchable. Plus, the amount of material available on the forums in every genre is always growing. One is the few apps that is worth every penny you'll pay, and more.
Don’t waste your money
by Coqui de Puerto Rico on 2020/04/21 02:26
In addition to your purchase... everything have an extra cost!!! Not a good tool don’t waste your money!

iReal Pro
by Sealawyer67 on 2020/03/23 13:44
I have been a non-professional guitarist for many many years. As the years progressed, I became less and less interested in playing at home unaccompanied. Guys like Tommy Emmanuel and Frank Vignola sound great as soloists, but not me. Several years ago a sax player friend - also non-professional - raved about iReal Pro. Using it, he was back to playing , learning and having an enjoyable time. I down loaded it and after a short learning period to get familiar with its workings and setup, the same thing happened to me. All of the “Great American Song Book” charts - my key interest - are there and easily downloaded, plus others genres. But what I most appreciated was learning how to create my own custom charts. The staff is extremely supportive and there are also instructional videos on YouTube. One of the things that amazed me was seeing so many professionals using it. I am in a business that requires me to attend formal dinners at hotels in NYC that have dance bands. I would always make a point to engage some in conversation. Most of the guys had the app on their smart phones. I can’t say enough about this product.
One Of The Best Apps I Own
by Jolly Roger 1 on 2020/03/15 06:07
This is, hands down, one of the best apps that I own. I have been playing guitar on and off for years, having much difficulty with swallowing. This app is very easy to use and has a ton of bells and whistle‘s. You can easily create a song and then easily transpose it or change the tempo with a couple of simple tabs. It allows me to practice my guitar ring in multiple keys with ease. There are a ton of different styles as well as time signatures that really add to the functionality of this app. Additionally, it seamlessly syncs with my iPhone and my iPad, so I can create a song on one device and it will easily just be there on my other device when I open it up. Fantastic job. Keep up the great work!
Exceeded my expectations!
by MoeMusic on 2020/03/12 23:32
I usually don’t write reviews but this app has improved my playing for sure! Highly recommend! 🔥🔥🔥
Thank you developer, your response made me change my 3 to a 5 star.
by Thirdnail on 2020/03/09 03:16
I downloaded this app, because of the 100’s of reviews, I am a guitarist looking for an app that would back my tracks when doing solo work. Also wanted to use the app as a muse and as a way to WRITE original music. It didn’t do what I wanted, but that wasn’t the developers fault. I want to thank the dev for replying to my review. They explained what the app could do, and the things that I could do to use the app with the functionality!
Great practicing app!
by Avazel on 2020/03/03 15:15
I recommend this app to my piano students because it helps them to play in time much better or at the very least realize how far off there own timing/rhythm is off with out ME being the one to tell them! Love the app!
No melody
by cvcbcvcbc on 2020/01/30 00:57
I love it! To bad it doesn't include the melody. Hopefully it will be added with a simple update sometime soon. 🙏🏾
Customer Service Tops
by Love blooms on 2020/01/25 01:05
Great customer service, timely and effective. Thank you for quick turnaround. This is a true asset to have for the working musician!
not able to load iReal Pro attachment by pressing & holding
by BigbirdMando on 2019/12/16 03:54
After the quick response from iReal Pro support, my initial review issue below is not an issue. I just had ro learn to scroll lright to see the option to share incoming iReal Pro attachment files to to iReal Pro app on my device, and it tells you where to find the attachment within the app. So I upgraded this rating to 5 stars, and couldn’t be happier with it! Thanks iReal Pro! Bob MY FORMER REVIEW FOLLOWS: I really like the app, and purchased it for both Android and iOS, but in iOS it is not letting me bring the iReal Pro email attachment into to iReal Pro on my iPad by pressing and holding on the attachment as the directions call for. The above is the only function that I’ve found is NOT working at this point, but I’d really like to get it working. Bob
Incredible App, Some downfalls
by jbmernick on 2019/12/11 13:31
This app is incredible. Not only am I able to find most songs from the real book and quickly dose load them, if the charts are wrong I can edit the chords or timing or repeats, key or tempo as needed. Not only that, when i couldn't find a song on the forums, I could create the chart as I needed it for any song. Only downfall is that I paid for the app on my mac too, and I can't seem to login on the iphone to transfer my songs to my laptop. Incredible and needed for any jazz musician or genre beyond. In a band you can practice or share these charts so everyone knows how their solo will sound over the music. Great app. When I found I could create charts I was in disbelief. Comping style sounds great between bossa and up tempo or any other style

Won’t let you download on different device once purchased
by elquesomenor on 2019/11/27 00:40
I love this app and use it all the time. But I am very frustrated with the fact that I cannot download the app on my computer when I purchased it on my phone. I looked on the developer website and they said I cannot transfer license between iOS App Store and Mac App Store. There must be a way around this.
Great Practice Tool
by howieguitar on 2019/11/24 03:23
I’ve been using iReal Pro for a few years and find it very useful in working out melodies, finding my stride and generally hashing out my chops. I highly recommend it. Tons of tunes as well! Howie
Great PRACTICE tool...
by DsrtTrkr on 2019/11/13 17:15
Reading posts on website of users wanting better sound quality with adjustable parameters. Better sound quality would be a great perk, but I like the basic simplicity of the app, it helps me focus on my core purpose, practice and study of my instrument. Keeps my mind from wandering off on technical issues. If people are looking for accompaniment for live settings or rehearsal look at other software ...or better yet find some humans to play with!!! Love this app.
Total junk
by ...::mybffs4evr::... on 2019/11/02 13:45
I give this five stars so maybe some poor schmuk will read it before blowing a bunch of money. I don't review often, but I must say this is the most poorly designed and useless app I have ever purchased. Simply changing a chord in one of the practice songs requires a programming degree from MIT. Making a mistake in the editor means deleting the entire song and starting over and still not being able to change an A chord to an E chord. MAKE IT SIMPLE STUPID should be the rule for the programmers of this piece of junk. If you want something to accompany you with YOUR chords, forget this app. Developers...,how about letting someone simply click on the f-ing chord AND CHANGE IT, what a concept. DON’T WASTE A PENNY IN THIS USELESS APPLICATION!!!!!!!!
Outstanding
by Emefbee on 2019/10/27 05:11
I have been using this app for about 2 years, and it is truly outstanding. I use it with a split screen with the music playing in the other half of the screen. The support is also superb.
A must have for the student or enthusiast
by Space____echo on 2019/10/08 16:00
I learned about this app through word of mouth while studying at university and let’s just say it rocketed me into a new practice routine and improved my playing dramatically.
Just ok
by 3CxrhERZ on 2019/09/13 12:05
Not great value for the $. Features are decent but UI is awful and sounds are robotic.
Very good app!

An Outstanding Tool
by RickProfundo on 2019/09/02 04:00
This app works so well and sounds so good that my duo (guitar & keys) has been using its drums and bass as part of the band in live performances. iReal Pro shines as a practice tool and the support is excellent. I highly recommend this app!
Awesome app
by awesomelicks on 2019/09/01 22:23
I’m a relatively new user. I have been using it to practice vocals with pre-loaded tunes (there are thousands of them) and to play along with my guitar and Uke. I’ve recently begun learning to enter my lead sheets and have found it to be quite intuitive and ireal pro assistance is excellent.
Five stars
by Purple Grotto on 2019/08/30 12:16
Fantastically useful. Once you get it, it’s indispensable.
Purchased but can’t use on computer??
by 66445313425 on 2019/07/26 17:09
This is BS seriously… I spent the money and like most apps wanted to use it on my phone iPad and MacBook, it’s going to cost me an additional $20 to put it on my MacBook because they say the platforms aren’t compatible??. Seriously?? And support is slow and difficult…
Perfect For Writing Chord Charts and Playing Along!
by Piladeal on 2019/07/19 20:33
I wanted to create an app like this years ago, I’m glad someone finally did!! It’s really thorough and pretty user friendly!! It’s very similar to band in a box if you’re familiar with that. Well worth the money!! Thanks!!!
Great for practicing improvisation.
by kiplovesjazz on 2019/07/18 23:35
Just love the old standards and there are 1350 of them with other jazz tunes. Great to improvise along with chord progressions and bass.
Practice Makes Progress
by Drew Engman on 2019/07/15 16:02
Great automatic backing track software similar to Band In A Box without the three hundred dollar price tag. Great features allow control of most musical variables: key, tempo, and backup band instruments. Good sound for practicing along with, possibly good enough for demo’s or live karaoke performance. Wonderful software that has been around a decade or so, with plenty of time to work out any glitches a long time ago. The program provides animated chord charts that follow the beat, but does not provide a melody line in musical notation. I have found sheet music elsewhere online, and the keys usually match the original keys in the written out songs. A perfect practice accompanist for solo instruments. The huge library of tunes online that anyone can download into the software is amazing. The most useful musical app of all time.
Newest update
by Camps with cat on 2019/07/09 22:24
Love the App. My husband and a bunch of other “seniors” formed a oldies rock and roll band. My husband downloaded the his app and used their music plus added some of his old.. they updated it he app and his old, senior, iPad could not use the updated version. He only had a week to go before their first big paying job!! I contacted IReel Pro and within hours Warren contacted us and told my husband how to log back on with the new version. Everything worked and he was able to play his gig with his music. Thank you Warren!!!

by Darth_Jazzy on 2019/06/15 21:19
I used this app to practicing for solos and learning improv. If you have the money this is the app to get. Amazing for practicing. A defiantly a 5 star app. Jazz is the best!!!
Great practice tool, good support.
by KBarM on 2019/06/15 16:54
This tool is a great way to practice, and play the tune in any key. (As a keyboardist, I turn down the keyboard part and practce along from my fake book charts.) I don’t find the editing interface super intuitive, but there is online documentation and their support responds quickly to questions. The jazz list of tunes is pretty comprehensive. I wish there were more vetted rock tunes. (People post their own titles in the forums, but it is “caveat emptor”: some people who post don’t seem to know you can specify a minor key, or have screwy chords. Most recent versions let you preview before you download a song, but older version that runs on older iOS does not. (And that is the helpful tidbit I got from their support staff.) Overall, well worth the investment.
Excellent app
by TSaxRex on 2019/06/14 16:48
Unwavering product support. Five stars for the customer support team. A lot of work has gone into making this the pinnacle of what is available at this time. It’s an excellent investment. I have it for both android and Apple products. It’s that good. I’m a bona fide user. I also bought it to put on my wife’s devices.
Works for me....
by Phonak1 on 2019/06/09 23:00
The app does what i need it to do and the after purchase support is great.
Great help!
by Msusano on 2019/05/28 20:31
Very attentive help, even on a holiday! Very impressed! Love this app! Gig w it regularly.
Simply amazing!
by Mashoul80 on 2019/05/28 04:06
I rarely write reviews, but this app has been such an amazing tool for me as I learn jazz guitar, I can’t even imagine practicing without it! From playing along with jazz standards to just solo practice in ii-V-I lines, to the fact that you can change the tempos, keys, rhythm, all on your phone without having to plug any thing anywhere, makes this app one of the best I’ve found for anyone interested in learning to play music. I think the author deserves an away for this!
To IRealPro: I love you
by Jazztromba on 2019/05/14 01:45
This has become an instrumental tool to use both in the practice room and on gigs. Practicing over solo changes helped me master songs like Giant Steps and Donna Lee and has changed the way I play my horn. On gigs, it’s perfect to check the chord changes and your song set list that way you’re never off from The rhythm section in a solo. Absolutely brilliant!
I love it!! What a bargain!
by anais32 on 2019/05/13 17:41
I’ve spent countless hours joyfully singing with this app. I’ve also been able to set keys that fit my voice like a glove. This used to be a very awkward process with a pianist, because finding the perfect key can be very time consuming. Well, it is for me. I can also email a set list and charts for upcoming gigs. This makes life so much easier. It is truly a bargain. I’ve saved hundred of dollars in rehearsal time because of this app. I recommend it to all my singer friends. Thank you!
I have no idea how to use his
by Good app but.... 486924 on 2019/05/06 01:12
They just throw you in there, without knowing anything. I don’t know how to do anything, and right now it looks like all it is for is jazz improvising which was not what I was looking for. Would not recommend
Great, but...
by Match o Matt on 2019/05/01 04:49
I have been using this app for years now and I do love it. I think there’s room for a few vital adjustments tho... one in particular that I would really like to see fixed. When a song is transposed and I want to edit chord changes, as soon as it goes into edit mode, it shows the chords in the original key the song was inputted, rather than the key I’m currently working with. This can be very frustrating in the moment for trying to make quick adjustments as I have to constantly transpose in my head to make edits. It would be nice if the edit mode always stayed in whatever key the current setting is.
Scam
by Boogie Bri on 2019/04/19 04:10
Advertises you can imports songs and playlists but doesn’t tell but only from the inside forums which you also have to buy. It’s a joke! Don’t waste your money. Buyer remorse and wasted a bunch of my time I could have been practicing

Whether you’re a serious amateur musician, semi-pro, or seasoned pro, this is a must-have app for practicing and gigging. And if you’re a jazz musician, get this NOW! The only thing missing will be the heads, but you can download all the changes from the Real Book and practice to your heart’s content. Build set lists and take it to gigs, so long as you know the heads.
Not what I expected.

Pretty useless for rock music. Store won’t refund money so I am out 12 bucks for something I won’t use.
Can’t plug and play
by Don38472829 on 2019/03/01 02:17
I thought I’d be able to plug in my guitar using iRig and play along. You have to use GarageBand to do that, and then you can’t see the chord charts. Useless for me.
What a find!
by vdocutter on 2019/02/25 20:22
Absolutely love this app! I can download thousands of scores, edit it, create it, change the key and the tempo,... It’s the aid to learning songs!
Great app; active community
by Grika on 2019/02/20 22:45
This has made my practicing so much more enjoyable that I actually miss it if my day is too busy. Plus there are so many charts available in the forum, that I've only had to make ones for pretty obscure tunes. I only wish there was more flexibility in charting. As it is, you either have normal size type or squishy. Having even two levels of condensed type would get it another star.
Amazing tool
by bookscdsdvdsandcoolstuff on 2019/02/12 05:31
Simply THE must have practice tool for the iPhone. In the forums you can download thousands of tunes, and practice with crowd sourced (and therefore relatively reliable) chord changes. Absolutely essential.
The best app ever
by Aqualadius on 2019/02/10 19:30
This app is easy, the customer support is amazing, and the forums are the best! I loved this app from the start, but now that I know Jimmy Bruno was this app I’m a fan for life!
No
by pianouta on 2019/01/21 18:26
I edited the song but it doesn’t reflect my edits when I tap “done” it. I saved them so when I edit they show my edit but they don’t play my edit. This app is confusing.
App is very good
by Joe the bruh on 2019/01/21 01:57
Definitely for professional musicians. Extremely well made aop
It’s great
by marshmellow jr on 2019/01/18 23:09
This is a great app with many songs and chord charts.However there are so many songs missing! I don’t expect them to have every song in the world lol.I real if you are reading this pleas pleas pleas pleas put these 2 songs in you’re app. In graze, and highline, by Jim rotondi
Chord Input on IPhone is bugged
by Clive Luis on 2019/01/14 09:05
Well I suppose the bread and butter of this app would be chord input . after inputting 50+ bars I found it difficult to navigate to the end of the page .. the cursor(next button) gets locked at the end of the page/line and does not move forward !
Terrific Tool

Great app especially for transposers
by Ann O'Reksha on 2019/01/08 15:52
IReal Pro is probably the iPhone/iPad app I use more than any other. As a music practice tool, it’s just fantastic. Creating playlists, setting different tempos, changing key signatures — all very easily done. I’m a saxophone player, and I practice every day, often switching horns in the middle of practice. So transposing for different instruments (e.g. Bb to Eb) is pretty important; this app makes it easy. I’ve been a Band in a Box user for many years, but iReal Pro is a much easier product to use.
Where is the main track where is the melody????

by lhnekdi on 2018/12/21 18:18
I wanted to download specific jazz standards to play and sing for a gig and be able to transpose them easily... this app is confusing and not user friendly, for $13 I’m very disappointed with the format. Could someone direct me to a more stream lined Real Book only app??
More than you are
by Joe Ptfsplk on 2018/12/11 19:09
This is my 2nd review. Prior to this, I rated iRealpro 5 stars; now I like to change that rating to 5.5 to 6 stars. I love all that is possible with iReal. However, when an issue came up I submitted the problem in the evening thinking the response would get to me within a day or two. Instead, when morning arrived upon waking up, there it was; the answer to my question. Many thanks to the iReal crew.
Lack of charts
by Leo gotti on 2018/12/05 16:52
The charts are often incorrect and usually only one version is available. It’s better than nothing but it used to be better!
Hard to navigate.

One of the greatest practice coaches
by Alfred North Whitehead on 2018/10/30 17:15
I have been using this app for several years now. It’s useful for my drum practice, bass practice, vocal practice, songwriting. How one chooses to use this as a practice tool: the sky’s the limit! The online community is amazing. I can have friends come over and I mute their particular instrument along with mine.I am learning bass as my second instrument and this program is invaluable. I can slow down anything to a manageable Tempo so I can explore the chords deeper. I can pick up even esoteric jazz and pop songs with the incredible online community. I do not need to be connected to the Internet to play downloadable songs with this software. I use it to also practice vocal exercises. It also exports charts to PDF which is fantastic if I want to play or share a chart with the actual song audio. One of the best purchases I’ve ever made from my iPhone and iPad. They say Time magazine voted this One of the 50 best inventions of 2010. I say it’s still one of the 50 best inventions for musicians and it’s 2018. Thank you developers!
Must own app for all jazzers
by Djamboy on 2018/10/25 17:13
This app is a no brainer, must own app for all jazzers. Indispensable for learning new tunes, and, if craftily used, can pop up in some gigging situations (shhh).
Need to pay another $20 to get the Mac version
by Onr_ce on 2018/10/24 02:07
I already own the the app for my iPhone but it is not easy to practice while making sure that your screen doesn’t turn off. I decided to install it to my Mac Pro but apparently you need to pay additional $20 for the same stuff.

Indespendible !!!!!
by Joey Delaney on 2020/07/22 12:18
Man, I’ve never been particularly adept at the tech side of music although we all strive to improve. I admit it, as a composer/player I tend to be impatient! This app serves the purpose of the composer SO WELL. Have a melody and chord changes in my head! Bap! I lay it down, play with grooves, tempos, new harms. and bring the composition to fruition in know time flat! As a pianist, I merely deck the onboard cat and have the most AMAZING tool to craft a composition! Also, by running it around through all keys, newer added ideas seam to materialize! And although I know my theory, writing a lead sheet would deflate my immediate artistic enthusiasm! Hats Off to iRealPro! It’s a tool for the intermediate to the most advanced jazz musician. And what a practice aid! I insist any students I may take get it immediately!! It’s as valuable as the Real Book was in Boston almost 60 years ago, only 10 times more useful!!! Joe Delaney
Incredible App, Some downfalls
by jbmernick on 2019/12/11 13:31
This app is incredible. Not only am I able to find most songs from the real book and quickly dose load them, if the charts are wrong I can edit the chords or timing or repeats, key or tempo as needed. Not only that, when i couldn't find a song on the forums, I could create the chart as I needed it for any song. Only downfall is that I paid for the app on my mac too, and I can't seem to login on the iphone to transfer my songs to my laptop. Incredible and needed for any jazz musician or genre beyond. In a band you can practice or share these charts so everyone knows how their solo will sound over the music. Great app. When I found I could create charts I was in disbelief. Comping style sounds great between bossa and up tempo or any other style
Great practice tool, good support.
by KBarM on 2019/06/15 16:54
This tool is a great way to practice, and play the tune in any key. (As a keyboardist, I turn down the keyboard part and practce along from my fake book charts.) I don’t find the editing interface super intuitive, but there is online documentation and their support responds quickly to questions. The jazz list of tunes is pretty comprehensive. I wish there were more vetted rock tunes. (People post their own titles in the forums, but it is “caveat emptor”: some people who post don’t seem to know you can specify a minor key, or have screwy chords. Most recent versions let you preview before you download a song, but older version that runs on older iOS does not. (And that is the helpful tidbit I got from their support staff.) Overall, well worth the investment.
One Of The Best Apps I Own
by Jolly Roger 1 on 2020/03/15 06:07
This is, hands down, one of the best apps that I own. I have been playing guitar on and off for years, having much difficulty with swallowing. This app is very easy to use and has a ton of bells and whistle‘s. You can easily create a song and then easily transpose it or change the tempo with a couple of simple tabs. It allows me to practice my guitar ring in multiple keys with ease. There are a ton of different styles as well as time signatures that really add to the functionality of this app. Additionally, it seamlessly syncs with my iPhone and my iPad, so I can create a song on one device and it will easily just be there on my other device when I open it up. Fantastic job. Keep up the great work!
Practice Makes Progress
by Drew Engman on 2019/07/15 16:02
Great automatic backing track software similar to Band In A Box without the three hundred dollar price tag. Great features allow control of most musical variables: key, tempo, and backup band instruments. Good sound for practicing along with, possibly good enough for demo’s or live karaoke performance. Wonderful software that has been around a decade or so, with plenty of time to work out any glitches a long time ago. The program provides animated chord charts that follow the beat, but does not provide a melody line in musical notation. I have found sheet music elsewhere online, and the keys usually match the original keys in the written out songs. A perfect practice accompanist for solo instruments. The huge library of tunes online that anyone can download into the software is amazing. The most useful musical app of all time.
Great as is. Encourage further development.
by BDC1989 on 2018/08/16 20:44
I’m a jazz snob. This app is perfect for me since I am learning jazz piano. It is also very good for composing and even recording a tune with other instruments, PROVIDED, one uses the midi out file transfer. The internal sounds are okay for learning but not good enough to record with. That’s okay because with a midi file player and multi layered sample based apps one can can obtain a very decent recording. I encourage the developer to consider further enhancements such as more comping styles, chord inversions, additional drum fills and practice tunes " in the style of (artist)". BTW, I have all the Session Band Jazz apps and this app has them beat. Great job!
Ten Star App!
by Trumpet music on 2017/08/27 17:47
I've been using iReal Pro since the beginning... and it keeps getting better and better! Besides being a great practice aid for my trumpet, it has helped me understand song form, and how to write it. Then it helped me learn the bass guitar, and now I'm able to teach basic guitar and piano to young students. In a pinch, it is a great backup band for live performance! I recommend this app, by name, to every musician I encounter, and am proud to give it the highest rating available! My only complaint is that I can't rate it higher, so that people can see what an exceptional app it is.
Great, but...
by Match o Matt on 2019/05/01 04:49
I have been using this app for years now and I do love it. I think there’s room for a few vital adjustments tho... one in particular that I would really like to see fixed. When a song is transposed and I want to edit chord changes, as soon as it goes into edit mode, it shows the chords in the original key the song was inputted, rather than the key I’m currently working with. This can be very frustrating in the moment for trying to make quick adjustments as I have to constantly transpose in my head to make edits. It would be nice if the edit mode always stayed in whatever key the current setting is.
Fantastic for Jazz bad for Pop
by Esa95 on 2017/12/04 23:59
This app is incredible. I play Jazz so this is perfect for having chord charts, making practice exercises, and a whole lot more! I feel like the add on for pop and blues is pointless though, other then having a chord chart all the tunes need a melody to even sound close to the original music. I feel like working with an actual metronome would be more useful to a beginner player. An aspiring Jazz player NEEDS this app but two chord chores and weekend players might want to look elsewhere on ultimate guitar tabs or something.
My most used app!
by Jkosch on 2017/08/27 20:11
This app does just about everything for me. It's a great practice tool, with ever more styles to play against. And I also use it as my gig book. Just bought the new Blues style pack and ran into problems installing. The support was amazingly fast and diligent. In the process I learned the program has features like looping and start from any measure. Also copy and paste. If they ever develop a way to incorporate melody?....in the meantime I will still use this app more than any other of the myriad of music apps I have.
Indispensible tool for the guitarists woodshed
by wireAndWood on 2017/09/19 23:40
This app is now an integral part of my woodshed workflow. If you are learning jazz or perfecting it, iReal can amplify the value of your practice time. A pro harmonica soloist recommended this app to me as a way to coordinate learning jazz standards (so we could jam, etc). I can set tempo, key, make chord substitutions, great, all the stuff in the marketing lit. Everything works as claimed. iReal abstracts a basic rhythm section, giving me simple tap control over things which would take (potentially loads) more time to explain to musicians. I can try out ranges of possibilities, phrasings and moods at whim. There's an active community of iRealers who continue to provide new songs and new interpretations of old ones. Thousands of songs are available. When Steely Dan's Becker passed, I was able to sound out the grief, starting with a handful of taps to download and play (along with) Deacon Blues.
Beware...
by Don Humungo on 2020/04/25 02:38
This app is not only expensive offering what similar apps offer BUT they also to squeeze more money out of you wherever possible. Bought this app with the intention of being able to use it on my Mac as well as my phone. If you buy it on ios it will only work there, if you buy on mac it will only work there. You will have to spend another $20 to get it on that other devise. The fact that this app is this much at its base and you cant use it on other devices is a big disappointment not to mention greedy. Furthermore, the layout of the app is confusing and designed poorly. You will waste lots of time navigating in and out of the Byzantine corridors of this app to find what you really want actually costs another 5 bucks...
Newest update
by Camps with cat on 2019/07/09 22:24
Love the App. My husband and a bunch of other “seniors” formed a oldies rock and roll band. My husband downloaded the his app and used their music plus added some of his old.. they updated it he app and his old, senior, iPad could not use the updated version. He only had a week to go before their first big paying job!! I contacted IReel Pro and within hours Warren contacted us and told my husband how to log back on with the new version. Everything worked and he was able to play his gig with his music. Thank you Warren!!!
Thank you developer, your response made me change my 3 to a 5 star.
by Thirdnail on 2020/03/09 03:16
I downloaded this app, because of the 100’s of reviews, I am a guitarist looking for an app that would back my tracks when doing solo work. Also wanted to use the app as a muse and as a way to WRITE original music. It didn’t do what I wanted, but that wasn’t the developers fault. I want to thank the dev for replying to my review. They explained what the app could do, and the things that I could do to use the app with the functionality!
I love it!! What a bargain!
by anais32 on 2019/05/13 17:41
I’ve spent countless hours joyfully singing with this app. I’ve also been able to set keys that fit my voice like a glove. This used to be a very awkward process with a pianist, because finding the perfect key can be very time consuming. Well, it is for me. I can also email a set list and charts for upcoming gigs. This makes life so much easier. It is truly a bargain. I’ve saved hundred of dollars in rehearsal time because of this app. I recommend it to all my singer friends. Thank you!

by DsrtTrkr on 2019/11/13 17:15
Reading posts on website of users wanting better sound quality with adjustable parameters. Better sound quality would be a great perk, but I like the basic simplicity of the app, it helps me focus on my core purpose, practice and study of my instrument. Keeps my mind from wandering off on technical issues. If people are looking for accompaniment for live settings or rehearsal look at other software ...or better yet find some humans to play with!!! Love this app.
Simply amazing!
by Mashoul80 on 2019/05/28 04:06
I rarely write reviews, but this app has been such an amazing tool for me as I learn jazz guitar, I can’t even imagine practicing without it! From playing along with jazz standards to just solo practice in ii-V-I lines, to the fact that you can change the tempos, keys, rhythm, all on your phone without having to plug any thing anywhere, makes this app one of the best I’ve found for anyone interested in learning to play music. I think the author deserves an away for this!
Can’t practice without iRealPro
by mkwplays on 2017/12/14 11:32
I’m 4 years into committed practice of jazz bass guitar, and I truly don’t see how I could pursue this path without my iReal Pro. My daily practice routines ~ scale and arp cycles to chord sequences to songs ~ are fully dependent on practice tracks. The app has so many settings, I can’t really see what couldn’t be practiced with it. Ok there’s probably a way for an adult non-genius with a good teacher and method to learn to play without iRealPro, but I can’t think what it is.
Just one thing to say...
by Yohann Sebby on 2017/09/04 23:56
I love this app and use it all the time for both playing along with music or writing music. My only problem is that this app doesn't have the ability to change the style mid-song. Therefore, songs like A Night in Tunisia, in which the groove changes from Latin to Swing and back, is left Latin throughout. Once that minor issue is fixed, this app will be perfect!

Waited to Review
by tryingfred on 2018/09/29 20:12
I waited to review this app to see how I’d like it and it’s functions. As a beginning musician trying to learn guitar in later life and never having learned any music/instruments you I’m not sure you will find a better tool. Takes a little time to learn how to use the app effectively, but I have found the app to be extremely flexible and helpful. Completely worth the money.
Great App. Upgrade tech needs a fix.
by Sark Mastre on 2018/07/03 15:15
This app essential to my work as a musician. I do not upgrade the app because I lose all my playlists when I upgrade the app. The companies fix for this “is download your Play lists and re-enter them into the app after you’ve done the upgrade. This should be fixed. If you do not do it correctly you have to rebuild all your playlists. If you are somewhat technically challenged as I am it’s gonna be a problem.
The ultimate backing track creator and more
by Kelvin Gee on 2018/07/22 05:18
What an amazing app! I can easily write (or use prewritten) chord progressions to create backing tracks that sound great and are excellent to jam with. Changing styles, tempos, and key signature is also extremely easy. The only thing missing from this app is an, “infinite repeat” function so I can jam for hours in end without pressing start when the repeats eventually come to an end. Right now repeats are limited to 30 times.
Please help!
by xtorux7 on 2017/12/01 20:48
I wanted to use this app for my iphone, but I accidently bought it on my Ipad, since every app I buy on either devices it allows me to open them on both devices since I’m using the same account, is there anyway I can change the app from the Ipad to the Iphone? It really doesn’t work for me on the Ipad. Sorry for bad english.

To IRealPro: I love you
by Jazztromba on 2019/05/14 01:45
This has become an instrumental tool to use both in the practice room and on gigs. Practicing over solo changes helped me master songs like Giant Steps and Donna Lee and has changed the way I play my horn. On gigs, it’s perfect to check the chord changes and your song set list that way you’re never off from The rhythm section in a solo. Absolutely brilliant!
Get This App!!
by sonicdeviant on 2019/03/15 00:30
Whether you’re a serious amateur musician, semi-pro, or seasoned pro, this is a must-have app for practicing and gigging. And if you’re a jazz musician, get this NOW! The only thing missing will be the heads, but you can download all the changes from the Real Book and practice to your heart’s content. Build set lists and take it to gigs, so long as you know the heads.
Ireal Pro - If you don’t have it, you NEED it.
by SteveSchein on 2018/02/10 17:58
If you are a musician at any level, this is the app for you! Imagine being able to practice any of hundreds and hundreds of INCLUDED songs at any tempo and in any key. Any number of choruses. Ability to select the rhythmic style. Ability to select the instrumentation of the rhythm section. Ability to dial rhythm instruments up or down - or out. You can even enter your own song chord changes. It’s not just a practice tool. You can hook your phone up to an amp and perform in public with this app. Make playlists. This is one of THE most well designed, well maintained and useful apps anywhere.
Great App! A little mechanical sounding...
by smartypans on 2018/08/12 00:55
Love this app! My ONLY suggestion for improvement would be to make it so that the note velocity in the chordal instrument have a little more of a humanistic quality. Maybe make each note velocity, or even whole chord velocities, be a little varied. Everything hammers at the same volume now, which is pretty mechanical sounding. Don't know how you'd achieve that. But if you did, I could gig with this!
I Real Pro
by bjtwist on 2018/07/18 16:54
What a great program. I am a journey jazz musician. Work and life jammed me up for the past year. Back in the shed and using the program again and man has it improved. Not only do I get the changes every time they change I get a list of note changes. That is so sweet! Thanks for taking care of the little guy.
Simple, valuable, accurate!
by chillbone1111 on 2017/08/31 13:52
As a performing solo/duo jazz guitarist, finding an app that's simple and predictable enough to provide backing drums that sound authentic, appealing, and correlate directly with the lead sheet, offer transpositions, stylistic variety... well that's a very tall order, but you've achieved it. Someone has listened and worked closely with real gigging musicians, thank you!
Can’t Imagine Being Without It!
by Power of habit on 2020/05/07 19:56
Started trumpet 7 years ago as a senior, couldn’t read a note! This App made all the difference for practice and gigs! Why play an instrument if you are not surrounded by the song’s arrangement and other instruments?! IRealPro is terrific. And, their contact desk is amazing for your questions! Speedy reply and coherent responses. Get it!
Best app of its kind
by Steve-O-2-0 on 2020/04/23 17:00
Pro musician, music director and producer here. There's is nothing even close to this app. On gigs or for practicing playing over changes, it is untouchable. Plus, the amount of material available on the forums in every genre is always growing. One is the few apps that is worth every penny you'll pay, and more.
Simply THE Best Teaching Tool Ever!
by PCotn on 2020/10/03 11:24
Of all the fifty plus years I have been teaching music, iRealPro is the best teaching tool I have ever had available. It makes examples so easy to demonstrate in so many musical circumstances. My students are being taught to be musicians not pickers and posers. IRealPro is an integral part of that process. With my online students it is a snap to send charts and the accompaniment tracks for them to practice with. My one wish would be that there could be a conversion tool included to turn the WAV files into MP3 files for a more standardized format for emailing. IRealPro is simply the best!! THANK YOU!!! Dr. Pat Corn Sevierville, TN
Excellent app
by Dean N on 2020/09/09 21:39
For the money, an excellent way to practice with an instant backing track. If you play different instruments, it can quickly transpose for you. Also very useful to transpose keys on the fly to accommodate singers. One suggestion: Please allow the app to open to a favorite playlist
Terrific Tool
by Lilolgirl on 2019/01/10 18:07

Blues styles
by motpom on 2017/08/29 19:24
Can not say enough about this app. The new styles help to improve my timing on a lot of the songs that seemed a little lost in the given styles. Coming back to them after learning in blues styles works great for me. Tech. Response is "A plus". Thank-you!
Great practicing app!

I recommend this app to my piano students because it helps them to play in time much better or at the very least realize how far off there own timing/rhythm is off with out ME being the one to tell them! Love the app!
Awesome!
by JC MACBOOK PRO 1 on 2018/10/06 11:25
In my opinion this is the greatest teaching tool I have ever come across for working on tunes and improvisation. To have the parameters to change so many elements is hugely helpful to my students and I also use it to work tunes in 12 keys as part of my practice routine. A definite must have. 👍🏼
Excellent !
by jaymanjammin on 2020/10/22 15:14
This has consistently been one of my best apps in my phone for a few years now. As a practicing tool, this app puts purpose into my practice and it’s fun! I love the options from creating to the forums, the styles and the EQ. This is a musicians app. Thank you developers!

Love this app so far, great practice tool, and I think there is much that I haven’t discovered. My only reservation thus far is that you can’t back up a few seconds to play a part over. I know the songs usually repeat, but having that feature would be a great plus.

by awesomelicks on 2019/09/01 22:23
I’m a relatively new user. I have been using it to practice vocals with pre-loaded tunes (there are thousands of them) and to play along with my guitar and Uke. I’ve recently begun learning to enter my lead sheets and have found it to be quite intuitive and ireal pro assistance is excellent.
Perfect For Writing Chord Charts and Playing Along!
by Piladeal on 2019/07/19 20:33
I wanted to create an app like this years ago, I’m glad someone finally did!! It’s really thorough and pretty user friendly!! It’s very similar to band in a box if you’re familiar with that. Well worth the money!! Thanks!!!
Problem sharing playlists since the latest iPhone update
by 310818213562 on 2018/04/12 15:29
I still love the app for practice and for organizing my own lists. But ever since the latest iOS update, the option to share a list in the iReal format doesn’t work. That was one of my favorite / most useful things about the app, so I hope it gets updated!
Simply the best.
by Cellar-user on 2017/10/02 20:15
Massimo and his team have created an app that every single jazz student or working professional needs to have. I use it in my teaching and I've used it on the gig. It's ease-of-use has translated into it becoming an absolute utility. Bravo! Worth every penny x10.
IRealPro
by Alice-O on 2020/06/11 11:49
I have recently learned about iRealPro and I am totally thrilled with it. It has an amazing range of music. It’s flexible and user friendly. It’s definitely helped me with my practicing and playing. And the tech support is also great. I highly recommend it.

iRealPro is a MUST!
by VeryUnsatisfied1282132 on 2020/11/12 17:47
This app is an ESSENTIAL to ANY jazz musician (or any musician for that matter). This app works FLAWLESSLY and provides me with all the tools I need to grow as a musician. The only complaint I have is that I wish the interface looked more aesthetically modern, however the functionality of the app makes up for this! 1000/10 would recommend!
IN-APP PURCHASES ARE BROKEN 11-11-2020
by hotelsinger on 2020/11/11 21:16
I bought the Blues style. Successful In-App purchase. I have the latest app update. Nothing I try pulled up those riffs. I have spent an hour, trying everything I could think of, but they won’t appear. What gives??? I saw that people were having this problem back in 2015! This still hasn’t been fixed?? Help me with this and I’ll give 5 stars.
Where is duolingo for this, lol
by atx920 on 2020/10/31 18:44
I do not understand why everybody raves about this. I have no idea how to decipher these gobbledygook charts. No lyrics no nothing. Just a bunch of slashes and triangles and stuff. Get guitar tapp, it at least has the lyrics and where the changes are. This is terrible. I guess they just assume you magically already know "chart-ese"

Simply THE Best Teaching Tool Ever!
by PCotn on 2020/10/03 11:24
Of all the fifty plus years I have been teaching music, iRealPro is the best teaching tool I have ever had available. It makes examples so easy to demonstrate in so many musical circumstances. My students are being taught to be musicians not pickers and posers. IRealPro is an integral part of that process. With my online students it is a snap to send charts and the accompaniment tracks for them to practice with. My one wish would be that there could be a conversion tool included to turn the WAV files into MP3 files for a more standardized format for emailing. IRealPro is simply the best!! THANK YOU!!! Dr. Pat Corn Sevierville, TN
Great app, great support
by Panama Piano Man on 2020/09/25 16:40
The app is sensational, and the support is beyond sensational. They are prompt to reply AND they offer real solutions. Highly recommended.
Excellent app
by Dean N on 2020/09/09 21:39
For the money, an excellent way to practice with an instant backing track. If you play different instruments, it can quickly transpose for you. Also very useful to transpose keys on the fly to accommodate singers. One suggestion: Please allow the app to open to a favorite playlist
The best App for musicians

Great app!

I’ve had and sporadically used this app for years. I have only come to LOVE it during this Covid-19 shut-down. I use the app a lot to have fun playing with bass & drums (I’m a Jazz pianist). It is an amazingly musical tool. Big praise for the originator and the programmers and the Support Staff. MANY THANKS! Si
Indespendible !!!!!
by Joey Delaney on 2020/07/22 12:18
Man, I’ve never been particularly adept at the tech side of music although we all strive to improve. I admit it, as a composer/player I tend to be impatient! This app serves the purpose of the composer SO WELL. Have a melody and chord changes in my head! Bap! I lay it down, play with grooves, tempos, new harms. and bring the composition to fruition in know time flat! As a pianist, I merely deck the onboard cat and have the most AMAZING tool to craft a composition! Also, by running it around through all keys, newer added ideas seam to materialize! And although I know my theory, writing a lead sheet would deflate my immediate artistic enthusiasm! Hats Off to iRealPro! It’s a tool for the intermediate to the most advanced jazz musician. And what a practice aid! I insist any students I may take get it immediately!! It’s as valuable as the Real Book was in Boston almost 60 years ago, only 10 times more useful!!! Joe Delaney
Piano and Drums Sounds
by Logobar on 2020/07/10 22:02
I love the app but the only piano sound I like and use is the Rhodes 2, also the drums sound quality is beneath the app. Any room for improvement?
son montunos
by 041577pazpazponROBERT on 2020/07/08 21:32
I am a Latin musician, the son montunos rhythms in the ireal pro app, previously the percussion is better, and with this new update they are sounding like the 80's casio keyboar. return the rhythms back please

Great for practice or performance!
by dmfelice on 2020/05/27 23:40
Our band been using this app for several years, both for practice and for performance. Combined with online services like Chordify, it allows you to create a track to play along with for virtually any song that you can find online or that you have in your own music library.Plus, download playlists from the forum and you could immediately have your own song library. Highly recommended!

Not There
by Robinrdcs on 2020/05/12 12:53
I have never spent this much on any app. I want worship songs, modern and old, and they are NOT there. I have looked for 5 songs, to play along with on my alto sax, and NONE are there. It is very hard to get around and not easy to use when you do. I am very disappointed considering it came recommend from a good source.
Exceptional tool
by FlugelBob on 2020/05/08 22:58
I have spent endless hours playing these tunes and it doesn’t ever get old. Change the tempo, change keys or you can record your performances to listen to and critique. Just great!!!
Can’t Imagine Being Without It!
by Power of habit on 2020/05/07 19:56
Started trumpet 7 years ago as a senior, couldn’t read a note! This App made all the difference for practice and gigs! Why play an instrument if you are not surrounded by the song’s arrangement and other instruments?! IRealPro is terrific. And, their contact desk is amazing for your questions! Speedy reply and coherent responses. Get it!
Powerful "teacher" and "companion" -- and tool

iReal Pro is essential
by Jeff, SUVJ on 2020/04/27 20:22
As a college jazz/contemporary voice teach, this app has become my #1 support tool. We’re using the record/share option for our final jury submissions during this crazy time of physical distancing. The BEST, most utilized app on my iPad and iPhone.
Beware...
by Don Humungo on 2020/04/25 02:38
This app is not only expensive offering what similar apps offer BUT they also to squeeze more money out of you wherever possible. Bought this app with the intention of being able to use it on my Mac as well as my phone. If you buy it on ios it will only work there, if you buy on mac it will only work there. You will have to spend another $20 to get it on that other devise. The fact that this app is this much at its base and you cant use it on other devices is a big disappointment not to mention greedy. Furthermore, the layout of the app is confusing and designed poorly. You will waste lots of time navigating in and out of the Byzantine corridors of this app to find what you really want actually costs another 5 bucks...
Best app of its kind
by Steve-O-2-0 on 2020/04/23 17:00
Pro musician, music director and producer here. There's is nothing even close to this app. On gigs or for practicing playing over changes, it is untouchable. Plus, the amount of material available on the forums in every genre is always growing. One is the few apps that is worth every penny you'll pay, and more.
Don’t waste your money
by Coqui de Puerto Rico on 2020/04/21 02:26
In addition to your purchase... everything have an extra cost!!! Not a good tool don’t waste your money!

iReal Pro
by Sealawyer67 on 2020/03/23 13:44
I have been a non-professional guitarist for many many years. As the years progressed, I became less and less interested in playing at home unaccompanied. Guys like Tommy Emmanuel and Frank Vignola sound great as soloists, but not me. Several years ago a sax player friend - also non-professional - raved about iReal Pro. Using it, he was back to playing , learning and having an enjoyable time. I down loaded it and after a short learning period to get familiar with its workings and setup, the same thing happened to me. All of the “Great American Song Book” charts - my key interest - are there and easily downloaded, plus others genres. But what I most appreciated was learning how to create my own custom charts. The staff is extremely supportive and there are also instructional videos on YouTube. One of the things that amazed me was seeing so many professionals using it. I am in a business that requires me to attend formal dinners at hotels in NYC that have dance bands. I would always make a point to engage some in conversation. Most of the guys had the app on their smart phones. I can’t say enough about this product.
One Of The Best Apps I Own
by Jolly Roger 1 on 2020/03/15 06:07
This is, hands down, one of the best apps that I own. I have been playing guitar on and off for years, having much difficulty with swallowing. This app is very easy to use and has a ton of bells and whistle‘s. You can easily create a song and then easily transpose it or change the tempo with a couple of simple tabs. It allows me to practice my guitar ring in multiple keys with ease. There are a ton of different styles as well as time signatures that really add to the functionality of this app. Additionally, it seamlessly syncs with my iPhone and my iPad, so I can create a song on one device and it will easily just be there on my other device when I open it up. Fantastic job. Keep up the great work!
Exceeded my expectations!
by MoeMusic on 2020/03/12 23:32
I usually don’t write reviews but this app has improved my playing for sure! Highly recommend! 🔥🔥🔥
Thank you developer, your response made me change my 3 to a 5 star.
by Thirdnail on 2020/03/09 03:16
I downloaded this app, because of the 100’s of reviews, I am a guitarist looking for an app that would back my tracks when doing solo work. Also wanted to use the app as a muse and as a way to WRITE original music. It didn’t do what I wanted, but that wasn’t the developers fault. I want to thank the dev for replying to my review. They explained what the app could do, and the things that I could do to use the app with the functionality!
Great practicing app!

not able to load iReal Pro attachment by pressing & holding
by BigbirdMando on 2019/12/16 03:54
After the quick response from iReal Pro support, my initial review issue below is not an issue. I just had ro learn to scroll lright to see the option to share incoming iReal Pro attachment files to to iReal Pro app on my device, and it tells you where to find the attachment within the app. So I upgraded this rating to 5 stars, and couldn’t be happier with it! Thanks iReal Pro! Bob MY FORMER REVIEW FOLLOWS: I really like the app, and purchased it for both Android and iOS, but in iOS it is not letting me bring the iReal Pro email attachment into to iReal Pro on my iPad by pressing and holding on the attachment as the directions call for. The above is the only function that I’ve found is NOT working at this point, but I’d really like to get it working. Bob
Incredible App, Some downfalls
by jbmernick on 2019/12/11 13:31
This app is incredible. Not only am I able to find most songs from the real book and quickly dose load them, if the charts are wrong I can edit the chords or timing or repeats, key or tempo as needed. Not only that, when i couldn't find a song on the forums, I could create the chart as I needed it for any song. Only downfall is that I paid for the app on my mac too, and I can't seem to login on the iphone to transfer my songs to my laptop. Incredible and needed for any jazz musician or genre beyond. In a band you can practice or share these charts so everyone knows how their solo will sound over the music. Great app. When I found I could create charts I was in disbelief. Comping style sounds great between bossa and up tempo or any other style

Won’t let you download on different device once purchased
by elquesomenor on 2019/11/27 00:40
I love this app and use it all the time. But I am very frustrated with the fact that I cannot download the app on my computer when I purchased it on my phone. I looked on the developer website and they said I cannot transfer license between iOS App Store and Mac App Store. There must be a way around this.
Great Practice Tool
by howieguitar on 2019/11/24 03:23
I’ve been using iReal Pro for a few years and find it very useful in working out melodies, finding my stride and generally hashing out my chops. I highly recommend it. Tons of tunes as well! Howie
Great PRACTICE tool...
by DsrtTrkr on 2019/11/13 17:15
Reading posts on website of users wanting better sound quality with adjustable parameters. Better sound quality would be a great perk, but I like the basic simplicity of the app, it helps me focus on my core purpose, practice and study of my instrument. Keeps my mind from wandering off on technical issues. If people are looking for accompaniment for live settings or rehearsal look at other software ...or better yet find some humans to play with!!! Love this app.
Total junk
by ...::mybffs4evr::... on 2019/11/02 13:45
I give this five stars so maybe some poor schmuk will read it before blowing a bunch of money. I don't review often, but I must say this is the most poorly designed and useless app I have ever purchased. Simply changing a chord in one of the practice songs requires a programming degree from MIT. Making a mistake in the editor means deleting the entire song and starting over and still not being able to change an A chord to an E chord. MAKE IT SIMPLE STUPID should be the rule for the programmers of this piece of junk. If you want something to accompany you with YOUR chords, forget this app. Developers...,how about letting someone simply click on the f-ing chord AND CHANGE IT, what a concept. DON’T WASTE A PENNY IN THIS USELESS APPLICATION!!!!!!!!
Outstanding
by Emefbee on 2019/10/27 05:11
I have been using this app for about 2 years, and it is truly outstanding. I use it with a split screen with the music playing in the other half of the screen. The support is also superb.
A must have for the student or enthusiast
by Space____echo on 2019/10/08 16:00
I learned about this app through word of mouth while studying at university and let’s just say it rocketed me into a new practice routine and improved my playing dramatically.
Just ok
by 3CxrhERZ on 2019/09/13 12:05
Not great value for the $. Features are decent but UI is awful and sounds are robotic.

An Outstanding Tool
by RickProfundo on 2019/09/02 04:00
This app works so well and sounds so good that my duo (guitar & keys) has been using its drums and bass as part of the band in live performances. iReal Pro shines as a practice tool and the support is excellent. I highly recommend this app!
Awesome app
by awesomelicks on 2019/09/01 22:23
I’m a relatively new user. I have been using it to practice vocals with pre-loaded tunes (there are thousands of them) and to play along with my guitar and Uke. I’ve recently begun learning to enter my lead sheets and have found it to be quite intuitive and ireal pro assistance is excellent.

by Purple Grotto on 2019/08/30 12:16
Fantastically useful. Once you get it, it’s indispensable.
Purchased but can’t use on computer??
by 66445313425 on 2019/07/26 17:09
This is BS seriously… I spent the money and like most apps wanted to use it on my phone iPad and MacBook, it’s going to cost me an additional $20 to put it on my MacBook because they say the platforms aren’t compatible??. Seriously?? And support is slow and difficult…
Perfect For Writing Chord Charts and Playing Along!
by Piladeal on 2019/07/19 20:33
I wanted to create an app like this years ago, I’m glad someone finally did!! It’s really thorough and pretty user friendly!! It’s very similar to band in a box if you’re familiar with that. Well worth the money!! Thanks!!!
Great for practicing improvisation.
by kiplovesjazz on 2019/07/18 23:35
Just love the old standards and there are 1350 of them with other jazz tunes. Great to improvise along with chord progressions and bass.
Practice Makes Progress
by Drew Engman on 2019/07/15 16:02
Great automatic backing track software similar to Band In A Box without the three hundred dollar price tag. Great features allow control of most musical variables: key, tempo, and backup band instruments. Good sound for practicing along with, possibly good enough for demo’s or live karaoke performance. Wonderful software that has been around a decade or so, with plenty of time to work out any glitches a long time ago. The program provides animated chord charts that follow the beat, but does not provide a melody line in musical notation. I have found sheet music elsewhere online, and the keys usually match the original keys in the written out songs. A perfect practice accompanist for solo instruments. The huge library of tunes online that anyone can download into the software is amazing. The most useful musical app of all time.
Newest update
by Camps with cat on 2019/07/09 22:24
Love the App. My husband and a bunch of other “seniors” formed a oldies rock and roll band. My husband downloaded the his app and used their music plus added some of his old.. they updated it he app and his old, senior, iPad could not use the updated version. He only had a week to go before their first big paying job!! I contacted IReel Pro and within hours Warren contacted us and told my husband how to log back on with the new version. Everything worked and he was able to play his gig with his music. Thank you Warren!!!

by Darth_Jazzy on 2019/06/15 21:19
I used this app to practicing for solos and learning improv. If you have the money this is the app to get. Amazing for practicing. A defiantly a 5 star app. Jazz is the best!!!
Great practice tool, good support.
by KBarM on 2019/06/15 16:54
This tool is a great way to practice, and play the tune in any key. (As a keyboardist, I turn down the keyboard part and practce along from my fake book charts.) I don’t find the editing interface super intuitive, but there is online documentation and their support responds quickly to questions. The jazz list of tunes is pretty comprehensive. I wish there were more vetted rock tunes. (People post their own titles in the forums, but it is “caveat emptor”: some people who post don’t seem to know you can specify a minor key, or have screwy chords. Most recent versions let you preview before you download a song, but older version that runs on older iOS does not. (And that is the helpful tidbit I got from their support staff.) Overall, well worth the investment.
Excellent app
by TSaxRex on 2019/06/14 16:48
Unwavering product support. Five stars for the customer support team. A lot of work has gone into making this the pinnacle of what is available at this time. It’s an excellent investment. I have it for both android and Apple products. It’s that good. I’m a bona fide user. I also bought it to put on my wife’s devices.
Works for me....
by Phonak1 on 2019/06/09 23:00
The app does what i need it to do and the after purchase support is great.
Great help!
by Msusano on 2019/05/28 20:31
Very attentive help, even on a holiday! Very impressed! Love this app! Gig w it regularly.
Simply amazing!
by Mashoul80 on 2019/05/28 04:06
I rarely write reviews, but this app has been such an amazing tool for me as I learn jazz guitar, I can’t even imagine practicing without it! From playing along with jazz standards to just solo practice in ii-V-I lines, to the fact that you can change the tempos, keys, rhythm, all on your phone without having to plug any thing anywhere, makes this app one of the best I’ve found for anyone interested in learning to play music. I think the author deserves an away for this!
To IRealPro: I love you
by Jazztromba on 2019/05/14 01:45
This has become an instrumental tool to use both in the practice room and on gigs. Practicing over solo changes helped me master songs like Giant Steps and Donna Lee and has changed the way I play my horn. On gigs, it’s perfect to check the chord changes and your song set list that way you’re never off from The rhythm section in a solo. Absolutely brilliant!
I love it!! What a bargain!
by anais32 on 2019/05/13 17:41
I’ve spent countless hours joyfully singing with this app. I’ve also been able to set keys that fit my voice like a glove. This used to be a very awkward process with a pianist, because finding the perfect key can be very time consuming. Well, it is for me. I can also email a set list and charts for upcoming gigs. This makes life so much easier. It is truly a bargain. I’ve saved hundred of dollars in rehearsal time because of this app. I recommend it to all my singer friends. Thank you!
I have no idea how to use his
by Good app but.... 486924 on 2019/05/06 01:12
They just throw you in there, without knowing anything. I don’t know how to do anything, and right now it looks like all it is for is jazz improvising which was not what I was looking for. Would not recommend
Great, but...
by Match o Matt on 2019/05/01 04:49
I have been using this app for years now and I do love it. I think there’s room for a few vital adjustments tho... one in particular that I would really like to see fixed. When a song is transposed and I want to edit chord changes, as soon as it goes into edit mode, it shows the chords in the original key the song was inputted, rather than the key I’m currently working with. This can be very frustrating in the moment for trying to make quick adjustments as I have to constantly transpose in my head to make edits. It would be nice if the edit mode always stayed in whatever key the current setting is.
Scam
by Boogie Bri on 2019/04/19 04:10
Advertises you can imports songs and playlists but doesn’t tell but only from the inside forums which you also have to buy. It’s a joke! Don’t waste your money. Buyer remorse and wasted a bunch of my time I could have been practicing
Reason for one star

This great app. Will be over the top forever with one More BIG FEATURE; Pitch control This will enable the user to tune the app song to a piano Or guitar Can it be done? Rex Great thanks
Get This App!!
by sonicdeviant on 2019/03/15 00:30
Whether you’re a serious amateur musician, semi-pro, or seasoned pro, this is a must-have app for practicing and gigging. And if you’re a jazz musician, get this NOW! The only thing missing will be the heads, but you can download all the changes from the Real Book and practice to your heart’s content. Build set lists and take it to gigs, so long as you know the heads.
Not what I expected.
by big gorrilla face on 2019/03/05 01:10
Pretty useless for rock music. Store won’t refund money so I am out 12 bucks for something I won’t use.
Can’t plug and play
by Don38472829 on 2019/03/01 02:17
I thought I’d be able to plug in my guitar using iRig and play along. You have to use GarageBand to do that, and then you can’t see the chord charts. Useless for me.
What a find!
by vdocutter on 2019/02/25 20:22
Absolutely love this app! I can download thousands of scores, edit it, create it, change the key and the tempo,... It’s the aid to learning songs!
Great app; active community
by Grika on 2019/02/20 22:45
This has made my practicing so much more enjoyable that I actually miss it if my day is too busy. Plus there are so many charts available in the forum, that I've only had to make ones for pretty obscure tunes. I only wish there was more flexibility in charting. As it is, you either have normal size type or squishy. Having even two levels of condensed type would get it another star.
Amazing tool
by bookscdsdvdsandcoolstuff on 2019/02/12 05:31
Simply THE must have practice tool for the iPhone. In the forums you can download thousands of tunes, and practice with crowd sourced (and therefore relatively reliable) chord changes. Absolutely essential.
The best app ever
by Aqualadius on 2019/02/10 19:30
This app is easy, the customer support is amazing, and the forums are the best! I loved this app from the start, but now that I know Jimmy Bruno was this app I’m a fan for life!
No
by pianouta on 2019/01/21 18:26
I edited the song but it doesn’t reflect my edits when I tap “done” it. I saved them so when I edit they show my edit but they don’t play my edit. This app is confusing.
App is very good

Definitely for professional musicians. Extremely well made aop
It’s great
by marshmellow jr on 2019/01/18 23:09
This is a great app with many songs and chord charts.However there are so many songs missing! I don’t expect them to have every song in the world lol.I real if you are reading this pleas pleas pleas pleas put these 2 songs in you’re app. In graze, and highline, by Jim rotondi
Chord Input on IPhone is bugged
by Clive Luis on 2019/01/14 09:05
Well I suppose the bread and butter of this app would be chord input . after inputting 50+ bars I found it difficult to navigate to the end of the page .. the cursor(next button) gets locked at the end of the page/line and does not move forward !
Terrific Tool
by Lilolgirl on 2019/01/10 18:07
I was turned on to this App by a music professor at a state university and I was blown away with all the features it offers for musicians to hone their craft, at their own pace and time. I was also recently impressed by their awesome level of prompt support. This App is a gem at your fingertips!
Great app especially for transposers
by Ann O'Reksha on 2019/01/08 15:52
IReal Pro is probably the iPhone/iPad app I use more than any other. As a music practice tool, it’s just fantastic. Creating playlists, setting different tempos, changing key signatures — all very easily done. I’m a saxophone player, and I practice every day, often switching horns in the middle of practice. So transposing for different instruments (e.g. Bb to Eb) is pretty important; this app makes it easy. I’ve been a Band in a Box user for many years, but iReal Pro is a much easier product to use.

I wanted to download specific jazz standards to play and sing for a gig and be able to transpose them easily... this app is confusing and not user friendly, for $13 I’m very disappointed with the format. Could someone direct me to a more stream lined Real Book only app??
More than you are
by Joe Ptfsplk on 2018/12/11 19:09
This is my 2nd review. Prior to this, I rated iRealpro 5 stars; now I like to change that rating to 5.5 to 6 stars. I love all that is possible with iReal. However, when an issue came up I submitted the problem in the evening thinking the response would get to me within a day or two. Instead, when morning arrived upon waking up, there it was; the answer to my question. Many thanks to the iReal crew.
Lack of charts
by Leo gotti on 2018/12/05 16:52
The charts are often incorrect and usually only one version is available. It’s better than nothing but it used to be better!

One of the greatest practice coaches
by Alfred North Whitehead on 2018/10/30 17:15
I have been using this app for several years now. It’s useful for my drum practice, bass practice, vocal practice, songwriting. How one chooses to use this as a practice tool: the sky’s the limit! The online community is amazing. I can have friends come over and I mute their particular instrument along with mine.I am learning bass as my second instrument and this program is invaluable. I can slow down anything to a manageable Tempo so I can explore the chords deeper. I can pick up even esoteric jazz and pop songs with the incredible online community. I do not need to be connected to the Internet to play downloadable songs with this software. I use it to also practice vocal exercises. It also exports charts to PDF which is fantastic if I want to play or share a chart with the actual song audio. One of the best purchases I’ve ever made from my iPhone and iPad. They say Time magazine voted this One of the 50 best inventions of 2010. I say it’s still one of the 50 best inventions for musicians and it’s 2018. Thank you developers!
Must own app for all jazzers
by Djamboy on 2018/10/25 17:13
This app is a no brainer, must own app for all jazzers. Indispensable for learning new tunes, and, if craftily used, can pop up in some gigging situations (shhh).
Need to pay another $20 to get the Mac version
by Onr_ce on 2018/10/24 02:07
I already own the the app for my iPhone but it is not easy to practice while making sure that your screen doesn’t turn off. I decided to install it to my Mac Pro but apparently you need to pay additional $20 for the same stuff.

Indespendible !!!!!
by Joey Delaney on 2020/07/22 12:18
Man, I’ve never been particularly adept at the tech side of music although we all strive to improve. I admit it, as a composer/player I tend to be impatient! This app serves the purpose of the composer SO WELL. Have a melody and chord changes in my head! Bap! I lay it down, play with grooves, tempos, new harms. and bring the composition to fruition in know time flat! As a pianist, I merely deck the onboard cat and have the most AMAZING tool to craft a composition! Also, by running it around through all keys, newer added ideas seam to materialize! And although I know my theory, writing a lead sheet would deflate my immediate artistic enthusiasm! Hats Off to iRealPro! It’s a tool for the intermediate to the most advanced jazz musician. And what a practice aid! I insist any students I may take get it immediately!! It’s as valuable as the Real Book was in Boston almost 60 years ago, only 10 times more useful!!! Joe Delaney
Incredible App, Some downfalls
by jbmernick on 2019/12/11 13:31
This app is incredible. Not only am I able to find most songs from the real book and quickly dose load them, if the charts are wrong I can edit the chords or timing or repeats, key or tempo as needed. Not only that, when i couldn't find a song on the forums, I could create the chart as I needed it for any song. Only downfall is that I paid for the app on my mac too, and I can't seem to login on the iphone to transfer my songs to my laptop. Incredible and needed for any jazz musician or genre beyond. In a band you can practice or share these charts so everyone knows how their solo will sound over the music. Great app. When I found I could create charts I was in disbelief. Comping style sounds great between bossa and up tempo or any other style
Great practice tool, good support.
by KBarM on 2019/06/15 16:54
This tool is a great way to practice, and play the tune in any key. (As a keyboardist, I turn down the keyboard part and practce along from my fake book charts.) I don’t find the editing interface super intuitive, but there is online documentation and their support responds quickly to questions. The jazz list of tunes is pretty comprehensive. I wish there were more vetted rock tunes. (People post their own titles in the forums, but it is “caveat emptor”: some people who post don’t seem to know you can specify a minor key, or have screwy chords. Most recent versions let you preview before you download a song, but older version that runs on older iOS does not. (And that is the helpful tidbit I got from their support staff.) Overall, well worth the investment.
One Of The Best Apps I Own
by Jolly Roger 1 on 2020/03/15 06:07
This is, hands down, one of the best apps that I own. I have been playing guitar on and off for years, having much difficulty with swallowing. This app is very easy to use and has a ton of bells and whistle‘s. You can easily create a song and then easily transpose it or change the tempo with a couple of simple tabs. It allows me to practice my guitar ring in multiple keys with ease. There are a ton of different styles as well as time signatures that really add to the functionality of this app. Additionally, it seamlessly syncs with my iPhone and my iPad, so I can create a song on one device and it will easily just be there on my other device when I open it up. Fantastic job. Keep up the great work!
Practice Makes Progress
by Drew Engman on 2019/07/15 16:02
Great automatic backing track software similar to Band In A Box without the three hundred dollar price tag. Great features allow control of most musical variables: key, tempo, and backup band instruments. Good sound for practicing along with, possibly good enough for demo’s or live karaoke performance. Wonderful software that has been around a decade or so, with plenty of time to work out any glitches a long time ago. The program provides animated chord charts that follow the beat, but does not provide a melody line in musical notation. I have found sheet music elsewhere online, and the keys usually match the original keys in the written out songs. A perfect practice accompanist for solo instruments. The huge library of tunes online that anyone can download into the software is amazing. The most useful musical app of all time.
Great as is. Encourage further development.
by BDC1989 on 2018/08/16 20:44
I’m a jazz snob. This app is perfect for me since I am learning jazz piano. It is also very good for composing and even recording a tune with other instruments, PROVIDED, one uses the midi out file transfer. The internal sounds are okay for learning but not good enough to record with. That’s okay because with a midi file player and multi layered sample based apps one can can obtain a very decent recording. I encourage the developer to consider further enhancements such as more comping styles, chord inversions, additional drum fills and practice tunes " in the style of (artist)". BTW, I have all the Session Band Jazz apps and this app has them beat. Great job!
Ten Star App!
by Trumpet music on 2017/08/27 17:47
I've been using iReal Pro since the beginning... and it keeps getting better and better! Besides being a great practice aid for my trumpet, it has helped me understand song form, and how to write it. Then it helped me learn the bass guitar, and now I'm able to teach basic guitar and piano to young students. In a pinch, it is a great backup band for live performance! I recommend this app, by name, to every musician I encounter, and am proud to give it the highest rating available! My only complaint is that I can't rate it higher, so that people can see what an exceptional app it is.
Great, but...
by Match o Matt on 2019/05/01 04:49

Fantastic for Jazz bad for Pop
by Esa95 on 2017/12/04 23:59
This app is incredible. I play Jazz so this is perfect for having chord charts, making practice exercises, and a whole lot more! I feel like the add on for pop and blues is pointless though, other then having a chord chart all the tunes need a melody to even sound close to the original music. I feel like working with an actual metronome would be more useful to a beginner player. An aspiring Jazz player NEEDS this app but two chord chores and weekend players might want to look elsewhere on ultimate guitar tabs or something.
My most used app!
by Jkosch on 2017/08/27 20:11
This app does just about everything for me. It's a great practice tool, with ever more styles to play against. And I also use it as my gig book. Just bought the new Blues style pack and ran into problems installing. The support was amazingly fast and diligent. In the process I learned the program has features like looping and start from any measure. Also copy and paste. If they ever develop a way to incorporate melody?....in the meantime I will still use this app more than any other of the myriad of music apps I have.
Indispensible tool for the guitarists woodshed
by wireAndWood on 2017/09/19 23:40
This app is now an integral part of my woodshed workflow. If you are learning jazz or perfecting it, iReal can amplify the value of your practice time. A pro harmonica soloist recommended this app to me as a way to coordinate learning jazz standards (so we could jam, etc). I can set tempo, key, make chord substitutions, great, all the stuff in the marketing lit. Everything works as claimed. iReal abstracts a basic rhythm section, giving me simple tap control over things which would take (potentially loads) more time to explain to musicians. I can try out ranges of possibilities, phrasings and moods at whim. There's an active community of iRealers who continue to provide new songs and new interpretations of old ones. Thousands of songs are available. When Steely Dan's Becker passed, I was able to sound out the grief, starting with a handful of taps to download and play (along with) Deacon Blues.
Beware...
by Don Humungo on 2020/04/25 02:38
This app is not only expensive offering what similar apps offer BUT they also to squeeze more money out of you wherever possible. Bought this app with the intention of being able to use it on my Mac as well as my phone. If you buy it on ios it will only work there, if you buy on mac it will only work there. You will have to spend another $20 to get it on that other devise. The fact that this app is this much at its base and you cant use it on other devices is a big disappointment not to mention greedy. Furthermore, the layout of the app is confusing and designed poorly. You will waste lots of time navigating in and out of the Byzantine corridors of this app to find what you really want actually costs another 5 bucks...
Newest update
by Camps with cat on 2019/07/09 22:24
Love the App. My husband and a bunch of other “seniors” formed a oldies rock and roll band. My husband downloaded the his app and used their music plus added some of his old.. they updated it he app and his old, senior, iPad could not use the updated version. He only had a week to go before their first big paying job!! I contacted IReel Pro and within hours Warren contacted us and told my husband how to log back on with the new version. Everything worked and he was able to play his gig with his music. Thank you Warren!!!
Thank you developer, your response made me change my 3 to a 5 star.
by Thirdnail on 2020/03/09 03:16
I downloaded this app, because of the 100’s of reviews, I am a guitarist looking for an app that would back my tracks when doing solo work. Also wanted to use the app as a muse and as a way to WRITE original music. It didn’t do what I wanted, but that wasn’t the developers fault. I want to thank the dev for replying to my review. They explained what the app could do, and the things that I could do to use the app with the functionality!
I love it!! What a bargain!
by anais32 on 2019/05/13 17:41
I’ve spent countless hours joyfully singing with this app. I’ve also been able to set keys that fit my voice like a glove.

by DsrtTrkr on 2019/11/13 17:15
Reading posts on website of users wanting better sound quality with adjustable parameters. Better sound quality would be a great perk, but I like the basic simplicity of the app, it helps me focus on my core purpose, practice and study of my instrument. Keeps my mind from wandering off on technical issues. If people are looking for accompaniment for live settings or rehearsal look at other software ...or better yet find some humans to play with!!! Love this app.

Can’t practice without iRealPro
by mkwplays on 2017/12/14 11:32
I’m 4 years into committed practice of jazz bass guitar, and I truly don’t see how I could pursue this path without my iReal Pro. My daily practice routines ~ scale and arp cycles to chord sequences to songs ~ are fully dependent on practice tracks. The app has so many settings, I can’t really see what couldn’t be practiced with it. Ok there’s probably a way for an adult non-genius with a good teacher and method to learn to play without iRealPro, but I can’t think what it is.
Just one thing to say...
by Yohann Sebby on 2017/09/04 23:56
I love this app and use it all the time for both playing along with music or writing music. My only problem is that this app doesn't have the ability to change the style mid-song. Therefore, songs like A Night in Tunisia, in which the groove changes from Latin to Swing and back, is left Latin throughout. Once that minor issue is fixed, this app will be perfect!

Waited to Review
by tryingfred on 2018/09/29 20:12
I waited to review this app to see how I’d like it and it’s functions. As a beginning musician trying to learn guitar in later life and never having learned any music/instruments you I’m not sure you will find a better tool. Takes a little time to learn how to use the app effectively, but I have found the app to be extremely flexible and helpful. Completely worth the money.
Great App. Upgrade tech needs a fix.
by Sark Mastre on 2018/07/03 15:15
This app essential to my work as a musician. I do not upgrade the app because I lose all my playlists when I upgrade the app. The companies fix for this “is download your Play lists and re-enter them into the app after you’ve done the upgrade. This should be fixed. If you do not do it correctly you have to rebuild all your playlists. If you are somewhat technically challenged as I am it’s gonna be a problem.
The ultimate backing track creator and more
by Kelvin Gee on 2018/07/22 05:18
What an amazing app! I can easily write (or use prewritten) chord progressions to create backing tracks that sound great and are excellent to jam with. Changing styles, tempos, and key signature is also extremely easy. The only thing missing from this app is an, “infinite repeat” function so I can jam for hours in end without pressing start when the repeats eventually come to an end. Right now repeats are limited to 30 times.
Please help!
by xtorux7 on 2017/12/01 20:48
I wanted to use this app for my iphone, but I accidently bought it on my Ipad, since every app I buy on either devices it allows me to open them on both devices since I’m using the same account, is there anyway I can change the app from the Ipad to the Iphone? It really doesn’t work for me on the Ipad. Sorry for bad english.

This has become an instrumental tool to use both in the practice room and on gigs. Practicing over solo changes helped me master songs like Giant Steps and Donna Lee and has changed the way I play my horn. On gigs, it’s perfect to check the chord changes and your song set list that way you’re never off from The rhythm section in a solo. Absolutely brilliant!
Get This App!!

Build set lists and take it to gigs, so long as you know the heads.
Ireal Pro - If you don’t have it, you NEED it.
by SteveSchein on 2018/02/10 17:58
If you are a musician at any level, this is the app for you! Imagine being able to practice any of hundreds and hundreds of INCLUDED songs at any tempo and in any key. Any number of choruses. Ability to select the rhythmic style. Ability to select the instrumentation of the rhythm section. Ability to dial rhythm instruments up or down - or out. You can even enter your own song chord changes. It’s not just a practice tool. You can hook your phone up to an amp and perform in public with this app. Make playlists. This is one of THE most well designed, well maintained and useful apps anywhere.
Great App! A little mechanical sounding...
by smartypans on 2018/08/12 00:55
Love this app! My ONLY suggestion for improvement would be to make it so that the note velocity in the chordal instrument have a little more of a humanistic quality. Maybe make each note velocity, or even whole chord velocities, be a little varied. Everything hammers at the same volume now, which is pretty mechanical sounding. Don't know how you'd achieve that. But if you did, I could gig with this!
I Real Pro

What a great program. I am a journey jazz musician. Work and life jammed me up for the past year. Back in the shed and using the program again and man has it improved. Not only do I get the changes every time they change I get a list of note changes. That is so sweet! Thanks for taking care of the little guy.
Simple, valuable, accurate!

As a performing solo/duo jazz guitarist, finding an app that's simple and predictable enough to provide backing drums that sound authentic, appealing, and correlate directly with the lead sheet, offer transpositions, stylistic variety... well that's a very tall order, but you've achieved it. Someone has listened and worked closely with real gigging musicians, thank you!
Can’t Imagine Being Without It!

Started trumpet 7 years ago as a senior, couldn’t read a note! This App made all the difference for practice and gigs! Why play an instrument if you are not surrounded by the song’s arrangement and other instruments?! IRealPro is terrific. And, their contact desk is amazing for your questions! Speedy reply and coherent responses. Get it!
Best app of its kind
by Steve-O-2-0 on 2020/04/23 17:00
Pro musician, music director and producer here. There's is nothing even close to this app. On gigs or for practicing playing over changes, it is untouchable. Plus, the amount of material available on the forums in every genre is always growing. One is the few apps that is worth every penny you'll pay, and more.
Simply THE Best Teaching Tool Ever!
by PCotn on 2020/10/03 11:24
Of all the fifty plus years I have been teaching music, iRealPro is the best teaching tool I have ever had available. It makes examples so easy to demonstrate in so many musical circumstances. My students are being taught to be musicians not pickers and posers. IRealPro is an integral part of that process. With my online students it is a snap to send charts and the accompaniment tracks for them to practice with. My one wish would be that there could be a conversion tool included to turn the WAV files into MP3 files for a more standardized format for emailing. IRealPro is simply the best!! THANK YOU!!!

Excellent app
by Dean N on 2020/09/09 21:39
For the money, an excellent way to practice with an instant backing track. If you play different instruments, it can quickly transpose for you. Also very useful to transpose keys on the fly to accommodate singers. One suggestion: Please allow the app to open to a favorite playlist
Terrific Tool
by Lilolgirl on 2019/01/10 18:07
I was turned on to this App by a music professor at a state university and I was blown away with all the features it offers for musicians to hone their craft, at their own pace and time. I was also recently impressed by their awesome level of prompt support. This App is a gem at your fingertips!
Blues styles
by motpom on 2017/08/29 19:24
Can not say enough about this app. The new styles help to improve my timing on a lot of the songs that seemed a little lost in the given styles. Coming back to them after learning in blues styles works great for me. Tech. Response is "A plus". Thank-you!
Great practicing app!
by Avazel on 2020/03/03 15:15
I recommend this app to my piano students because it helps them to play in time much better or at the very least realize how far off there own timing/rhythm is off with out ME being the one to tell them! Love the app!
Awesome!
by JC MACBOOK PRO 1 on 2018/10/06 11:25
In my opinion this is the greatest teaching tool I have ever come across for working on tunes and improvisation. To have the parameters to change so many elements is hugely helpful to my students and I also use it to work tunes in 12 keys as part of my practice routine. A definite must have. 👍🏼
Excellent !
by jaymanjammin on 2020/10/22 15:14
This has consistently been one of my best apps in my phone for a few years now. As a practicing tool, this app puts purpose into my practice and it’s fun! I love the options from creating to the forums, the styles and the EQ. This is a musicians app. Thank you developers!
iReal Pro
by Billebud on 2020/10/30 06:05
Love this app so far, great practice tool, and I think there is much that I haven’t discovered. My only reservation thus far is that you can’t back up a few seconds to play a part over. I know the songs usually repeat, but having that feature would be a great plus.
Outstanding
by Emefbee on 2019/10/27 05:11
I have been using this app for about 2 years, and it is truly outstanding. I use it with a split screen with the music playing in the other half of the screen. The support is also superb.
Awesome app
by awesomelicks on 2019/09/01 22:23
I’m a relatively new user. I have been using it to practice vocals with pre-loaded tunes (there are thousands of them) and to play along with my guitar and Uke. I’ve recently begun learning to enter my lead sheets and have found it to be quite intuitive and ireal pro assistance is excellent.
Perfect For Writing Chord Charts and Playing Along!
by Piladeal on 2019/07/19 20:33
I wanted to create an app like this years ago, I’m glad someone finally did!! It’s really thorough and pretty user friendly!! It’s very similar to band in a box if you’re familiar with that. Well worth the money!! Thanks!!!
Problem sharing playlists since the latest iPhone update
by 310818213562 on 2018/04/12 15:29
I still love the app for practice and for organizing my own lists. But ever since the latest iOS update, the option to share a list in the iReal format doesn’t work. That was one of my favorite / most useful things about the app, so I hope it gets updated!
Simply the best.
by Cellar-user on 2017/10/02 20:15
Massimo and his team have created an app that every single jazz student or working professional needs to have. I use it in my teaching and I've used it on the gig. It's ease-of-use has translated into it becoming an absolute utility. Bravo! Worth every penny x10.
IRealPro
by Alice-O on 2020/06/11 11:49
I have recently learned about iRealPro and I am totally thrilled with it. It has an amazing range of music. It’s flexible and user friendly. It’s definitely helped me with my practicing and playing. And the tech support is also great. I highly recommend it.
