Thank you RJV Media for an absolutely excellent learning tool for all of us musicians who need a tool that's not too complicated, but has just enough features to be of great help in learning new music.
I've tried these kinds of applications before, and they were always overly difficult to use in that they had just way too many features that I would never use - and they didn't sound all that good. iRehearse is perfect for how I want to learn new music in that I can tune an imported song's key to the key I want to play it on my guitar - meaning it's very easy to tune a guitar down to where it's comfortable for my voice, and I can then tune the selected song down to that.
It's great to be able to see the song as a waveform for keeping tabs on where you are in the song, in addition to being able to see where you have set up the in and out points for the looping function.
Transport functions are quite clear, especially being able to jump right to the loop you've set up. Perhaps the scroll back button function would be more useful as a 'start at the beginning of the song' function (which is now done by clicking at the beginning of the waveform).
The loop function is extremely helpful in accurately focusing in on a section of the song with loops being easily set, edited, or deleted. I would make the 'jump to loop' button and the 'repeat it over and over' button as one button so one click gets you to your loop and begins looping it for you - but this is wonderfully functional the way it is.
What works most flawlessly are the Tempo and Pitch controls that feature helpful numeric settings which are kept with the songs that have been imported.
The most basic output controls (bass, treble, and balance along with the master level) are fine for the purpose of this application - and the 'LED' VU meter is a nice touch. Perhaps having the choice to hide the output section would be as useful as being able to hide the playlist section.
All in all, this is a great learning tool at an incredibly great price!
FIVE STARS ACROSS THE BOARD!!!
