iRehearse Plus - The Ultimate Musicians' Phrase Trainer and Rehearsal Aid for Mac

Ever wish you could you could slow down music to hear a complex passage more clearly?  Ever wish that slowing down a song didn't change its pitch so you could still play along?  Ever wish you could loop over a small section of a track and practice it again and again until you get it just right?

iRehearse Plus allows you to do all of this... and more...

iRehearse Plus detailed view

iRehearse Plus is the extended version of our popular software phrase trainer, iRehearse. It has all of the core features that makes iRehearse great for practicing musicians, but we've added a mass of new features for the more demanding user.

Export M4A Audio:

New for version 1.2 is M4A audio export. This is perhaps the biggest feature request we receive and now it's here! Now you can export the pitch and tempo adjusted track as an M4A for playback on your iPhone or iPod. Take your adjusted audio with you!

Full EQ and Stop Band Filter

Also new in 1.2 is a full 10 band graphic equaliser, including presets, allowing you to really pick out a particular instrument. If the EQ doesn't give you enough control, we've also included a stop band filter. This gives you the ability to cut a specific frequency range within the track.

Detailed View:

Zoom in on waveforms and really get to grips with that tricky section. Drop markers, make quick loop selections and toggle the loop countdown.

Video Demo:

NOTE: Video uses version 1.1, although the principles are the same for 1.2 and above.

Change the Pitch of a Song:

Pitch shift a song without changing the tempo. Ideal if you need to tune a track to your instrument, or prevent the need to re-tune between tracks when rehearsing.

Change the Speed of a Song:

Adjust the tempo of a song without changing the pitch. This allow you to practice that complex solo or riff at a slower speed without re-tuning your instrument. If you really want a challenge, you can even speed up the audio and play at twice the speed!

Loop a Section of a Song:

Mark up to five sections of the track to loop. Practice that tricky section again and again until it's perfect. Of course all pitch and tempo adjustments work on loops too.

Multiple Playlists:

Create as many playlists as you need and quickly switch between them using the Playlist Library.

Varied File Formats:

iRehearse Plus will play all standard audio formats like MP3 or M4A, however it can also load other formats. iRehearse Plus utilises Apple Core Audio and as a result can play almost every format that Core Audio can. Note however that it cannot playback DRM protected tracks. This includes those from an Apple Music subscription. Unfortunately this is a restriction put in place by Apple and is beyond our control.

Other Features:

  • Drag and Drop from iTunes.
  • Apple Remote support. Use your remote to control iRehearse Plus.
  • Audio meta-data. See the track name, artist and album in the playlist.

NOTE: iRehearse Plus is unable to play tracks that are protected using DRM (digital rights management).  DRM is specifically designed to prevent access to the raw audio sample data within the track (to prevent copying of the audio).  iRehearse Plus requires access to this raw audio data in order to shift the pitch and tempo.  Note that this includes Apple Music files that are streamed or downloaded using an Apple Music subscription.
