"Free Apps" - Steinberg Smart Click for starters.


Recommended Posts

For a long time, just because I downloaded it once and it worked, I've been using the Steinway branded metronome on my phone.




I saw yesterday that Steinberg is looking for a little iOS screen real estate with a free metronome app called Smart Click. It's the result of a trainee program they are working on, http://www.steinberg.net/en/community/stories/2016/young_pioneers.html


Key features of of Smart Click

Accurate metronome engine

Easy-to-use interface

Visual assistant

Various metronome modes

Multiple ways to enter your tempo




Can anyone else share a free, nominally priced, or just excellent music app they've found to be constantly useful?

IK Multimedia's iGrand Piano Free. It comes in handy when I'm at gigs and I'm not at my rig (like in the green room). It's useful for trying things out or to hash out parts and changes with band mates. There's a fuller featured paid version, but the free does all I need.
Live rig: Roland FA-08, Yamaha MOTIF ES 6, laptop for supplemental sounds.

Roland Air Recorder - record and/or playback. Transpose and change tempo of songs in your library. Free for iOS


Amazing Slow Downer does the same but with higher sound quality. It is not free. iOS and Android.


Animoog is well worth the price as an incredible synthesizer. iOS


Unrealbook is a great live performing charts display program. Not free but so excellent. iOS


Korg apps are great, but best ones not free. iOS


I use Steinway Metronome on iOS

But my favorite for live use is 7Metronome by Sándor Török for Android. My whole band loves it.


I'm a hack guitar player. There are many chord helpers and tuners.

There's the free Boss Tuner for iOS and Android

Here's a few more I found...


Guitar Tuna - free (i think with IAP), visual guitar tuning complete with a little ding



I have been using Zoom recorders for a long time and stumbled on this app, which is actually intended for use with their iOS microphones. But it also works with the phones internal mic (in mono of course). It's quite good, and free.
