Favorite sounds can be saved in one of 48 user-programmable presets, organized as 8 color-coded banks for easy organization. A chromatic tuner allows quick and accurate tuning; the adjustable metronome includes tap tempo and selectable accent sounds. The app also features a looping audio player, giving users the ability to play along with any song in their device's music library.
