Apple Music Memos is like voice memos, but MUCH more magical. There’s a singular button at the center of the screen that you tap when you’re ready to record (and even then, there’s an “auto” mode that will detect when music is being played and start recording immediately). Play with either piano or guitar (you can use other instruments, but those two are the best for this application). When you’re done, the app will analyze what you played, automatically generate a lead sheet with the chords you played and AUTOMATICALLY add drums and bass! Check out this demo:
On the occasion that the app gets it wrong, you can go in and manually edit some of it’s interpretations as well. This new app from Apple is another reason there’s no excuse for musicians to not be making music. The Apple Music Memos app will almost undoubtedly become an invaluable tool to songwriters far and wide!
