App Makes Transcribing Easier

Transcribe+ App ScreenIf you’re in the market for an app to help you transcribe the songs you want to learn, Transcribe+ aims to help.

The app, designed for iPhone and iPad, allows you to import a song from your music library, change the speed and key, create loops, see the music’s waveform and even take notes.

A version of the app, with limitations, is available for free. However, a $4.99 in-app purchase unlocks all of the Transcribe+ features.

Transcribe+ is available through iTunes.

Looks cool, but I can’t express how tired I get of things only being made for Apple devices! There are so many good tablets & phones out there that are Android-based! I know it’s easier for developers – only one hardware config to have to deal with if you’re an Apple-only app, but it’s annoying to those of us who don’t have/don’t want in iPad or iPhone.

    I have 2 apps on the side of my head for transcribing :-) no android or apple needed.

    Couldn’t agree more. I would buy it if it was on Android.

    At the recent NAMM show I spoke to the head engineer at Petersen (famous for their incredible tuners) who explained to me how the audio architecture in Android devices is poorly suited for music apps (like their tuners) with significant latency problems at a structural level. I don’t understand the details, but that’s how he described their reason for delay in creating Android apps. He said they simply could not be comparable in function. This might have something to do with other companies being slow to roll out Android apps, or failing to do so all together. To paraphrase him, Its incredibly disappointing that Google has neglected audio in this way.

This looks pretty nice! It seems to function better than Riff Station and it is a heck of a lot cheaper as well.. Hopefully it will come out for Android soon..
