Apps for musicians
I'm an actively gigging bass player, and I've been looking around for various programs to help me get better at my craft. Anything from recording to metronomes (I'm using gTuner, which is awesome, so no need for tuner apps), but I'm also specifically looking for programs to help me with my sight reading.
Also, any sheet music/chart program suggestions would be welcome.
I'm not sure about helping with sight reading, but for a metronome, I use Mobile Metronome.
As a music teacher, I use:
Haven't seen any sheet music apps.
I'm using mobile metronome, and I noticed it drops time if you have the accent on after so many beats. I turned off the accent and it seems to be working fine.
There was a great app for my ipod touch that had all the fingerings for the common band instruments. Anything similar you've found on Android. Makes teaching those damn flute fingerings easier ;)
Musician here as well, some of the apps that I have found to be useful:
- gStrings (tuner)
- JamBox (chord dictionary)
- FourTracks (four track recorder, pretty cool for quickly recording ideas)
- Tabs (by ultimateguitar.com, absolutely incredible guitar tab app, worth the $)

Hey guys - I know this is an old thread, but I just released [Only registered and activated users can see links.

A seasoned musician should be able to figure out most pop songs, but it's helpful for beginners, the lazy folks, DJs, and anyone analyzing more complex stuff or just looking for a starting point when charting a song.
