Hi, this is Gary with MacMost.com. On today's episode let's take a look at the new app, Music Memos.
So you can get Music Memos from the App Store. It's free. It's from Apple. I assume it works only on the latest hardware so you're going to have a fairly recent iPhone or iPad. I'm using last year's iPhone 6+ and it works fine. However it is kind of buggy. On my iPad Air 2 it didn't really work because the record volume was always way too low. So hopefully there will be some fixes soon and it will work for more people.
When you go into it it is a fairly simple interface. Big button in the middle of the screen that allows you to start recording. There's an Auto button at the upper left hand corner that supposedly will start recording when you start playing or singing but it doesn't quite work. It was always a fraction of a second too late for me so it cut off the beginning. Then a File cabinet for you to review the stuff that you've made. Also a Tuner at the upper right.
So if you go into the Tuner it basically just listens and tries to figure out what note you are trying to play on an instrument and shows you how close you are.
