An easy-to-use tool to help musicians of all levels master their art

It simulates a real-sounding band that can accompany you as you practice. The app also lets you create and collect chord charts of your favorite songs for reference.

    New user, with little experience, but so far it looks like it might be very useful for making custom backup tracks for live performance
