Anyone used this?
http://irealpro.com/

Maybe it's handy to use with jazz & blues pieces. it seems very fun to play along with some tunes, altough not so usefull for classical pieces.

I use it all the time for:
1. Practice. I have an amp set up by my piano so when I learn a new tune, I can provide a bass and drums to play along with.
2. Gigs. Rather than use bulky Real Books, all you need are chords if there is a horn player who'll play the head. It also helps with singers because you can transpose if they don't bring appropriate charts.

One of the cheapest and best tools out there for jazz.

I also use it all the time. For practicing chords inversions/voicings and progressions. And also to learn Latin songs for my weekend gig. You're right that it's not generally applicable to classical pieces, but I've found that the skills do transfer over and enhance my classical studies.

In addition I bought a bluetooth speaker to put on my piano (smartphone sound isn't that good), and it's a nice add on to practicing.

Hi J,

Yeah I use the I real pro APP everyday on my phone.The play along tracks are great to jam with.

Handy sometimes at gigs too when someone calls a standard I may have forgotten smile

Ireal Pro just launched a bundle of Blues comp Rhythms/Styles. A 1 time buy (4$?). Great stuff to practice with Tim Richards Improvise Blues Piano, or some 12 bar blues improvisations. After 2 years of using it, it is still such a great app!

Based on a suggestion in another thread on this site, I got a little mixer so now I can feed both my keyboard and IRealPro into my headphones, and balance the sound of the two inputs to my satisfaction. This has become my favorite was to shed tunes for a gig.
