Slow down and learn to play your favorite songs.

What is Capo for Mac

Capo lets you slow down your favorite songs so you can hear the notes and learn how they are played. With Capo, you can quickly tab out your songs atop a highly-detailed OpenCL-powered spectrogram display.

Features:
  • Detect, and enter chords
  • Pitch adjustment
  • Mark song sections
  • Loop at slower speeds
  • Export Capo-adjusted music
  • Basic effects available

Note: While the software is classified as free, it offers in-App Purchases.

The free trial allows 60 seconds of playback per session before noise is inserted into the song, plus access to all features, including the chords, slowing, our isolation engine, and more.

For $39.99 per year, Capo Pro grants access to:

  • Unlimited play time
  • Auto-detected chords for entire songs
  • All current features
  • All upcoming Pro features in development

I am tired of applications saying they are free when they are not. You need to make an In-App-Purchase. Please Macupdate, stop this and start specifying which applications are really free, which ones have an In-App-Purchase and which ones are a subscription (and the renewal period).

I'm still using Transcribe! instead of Capo, mainly because I'm used to it, but any time I'm trying Capo I discover something new and I'm more and more impressed! Today I've discovered the "isolation" part on the right pane: it allows you to isolate an instrument to focus on it and it's really amazing. I've been working on Ray Charles' What'd I Say where the instruments are panned quite heavily, so you can nearly get only the piano and cancel the drums! It surely will give the best results with old recordings from the sixties with a lot of separation. In modern pop recordings where a lot of things are mixed dead center, it's harder but you can have good results using this feature to make a karaoké file instead, etc. The only thing that I prefer in Transcribe! is that you can click anywhere in the waveform to place the cursor: in Capo, you have to click on the ruler instead. Also, you can create regions (which is an interesting feature), but the cursor won't move automatically to the start of the region you've just created, which would be an interesting option.

I'm not sure this app is very effective. Have downloaded and tried it for several times. The idea of slowing down the song is good but in practice it become boring process. Much simpler and quicker way is to see the song notes in the Internet. Just my opinion.

I'm curious if any of you Capo Users might have some Information for me. I'm looking for a Client/App to Write (basically) Lead Sheets. I'd love to be able to Type-in Lyrics and be able to post Chord Symbols above the Lyrics... and a Lead/Melody Line like in a Fake Book. Any ideas?

I'm pretty impressed by the features! The tempo detector seems to work ok, the chords detector is not perfect but I like the ability to enter midi notes based on the spectrogram and then export a midi file! The slowed down sound is quite perfect, idem for the detuned sound. Only problem for me: I tune my guitars one tone lower, so the displayed chords don't match. It would be nice to add some pref for guitarists using a different tuning, I'm sure I'm not the only one (what about Hendrix? ;-) ). Also, if you want to totally hide chords or tabs, or expand the sound wave display, you can't.

I've been using Capo since mid 2012 and would like to compliment the developers on a job well done. Capo is an amazing program and the SuperMegaUltraGroovy support team has been responsive and helpful. Updates are published quickly and the few issues I've encountered have all been solved. If you're looking for a tool that will automagically transcribe your favourite tunes flawlessly you may have to wait (and probably pay a lot more than $30). But if you're looking for a learning tool that will help you to decrypt guitar leads, chord progressions, melodies, etc. Capo is certainly worth a look.

This is great program ( albeit somewhat pricy for my pocket book )that automatically detects chords (tablature form for string instruments ) in the song when you load it. That helps me learn to play the song even though I do not play guitar. Slowing down and changing pitch is helpful in hearing the effects at different speeds and pitch before deciding how to score the music.
