Video: Tutorial

Guide Track is the primary go-to tool when you want to quickly create a precise guide track for recording when you know the song structure and the style.

Simply set the time signature, which chords for how many beats and the beat style—Guide Track does the rest for you!

Use inter-app audio or AudioBus or save your track to file and you are ready to start recording for real with a perfect smart click track and guide chords and bass.

Save hours of messing around and get to what matters—your creativity. Once done you can mute the guide track to reveal your perfectly structured recording. It's like a sculptor using a mold when casting, except instead of bronze, you end up with perfectly structured music.

You can also use Guide Track to print out chord sheets for your band or to capture late night (or early morning) song ideas or for a recording aid. You can also record the parts separately for more editing possibilities, even using Guide Track parts in your final mix if desired.

The Home Screen is where all files are managed, emailed and exported to other desktop and iOS apps.

Projects, Recordings and MIDI files you create will get you to your real goal faster—to record a great track!

The Composer includes convenient controls for entering in chord progressions, previewing them and recording.

Add, insert and replace chords, beats, sections and rests to your heart's desire.

Print or email useful chord sheets with lyrics at any time.

The slide-out side panel is where you select drum patterns and sounds you want to use as well as adjust play style and swing.

Send Guide Track music to external synthesizers via MIDI out.
