What doesn’t kill you – makes you stronger
being able to transcribe, teach, and also learn myself! Often I’m required to play more
complex sections of music or transpose to different keys and Anytune has been a really
handy app to enable me to get results faster!
I play in a UK based melodic metal band called Metaprism and I’ve used the app to help with songwriting and riffs (using different keys, tempos etc.). We recently played at Bloodstock Open Air Festival and I actually used the app when practicing to SPEED UP the songs for the set. The old adrenaline kicks in on stage and we tend to play the set a little faster, so again, Anytune really helped me prepare for this and other performances!
I actively encourage all my students to download it and use it
