app review: Singscope


What it Does

Singscope is a free, simple app that shows your pitch as you sing.

The Bottom Line

Singscope is a nicely designed app that does what it aims to do and won't cost you a penny.

When you first install the app it pops up basic instructions with an overlay to point to what each of the buttons do. It is extremely easy to use, however in the unlikely event that you require further help, there are instructions on the manufacturer's website.



The pitch detection algorithm seems accurate and throughout testing did not show up and irregularities. The ability to pitch-zoom in and out of the graph in real time is a useful feature, especially if you are using the app on a smaller screen.



You can also save the recording of performances if you wish to within the apps library so you can go back to them at a later time.



At the time of writing this there were not enough reviews to gauge an overall opinion from people who have used the app.

Musician's Note

Singscope is a nicely designed app that works surprisingly well considering it is free. The real-time analysis is useful to see if you are hitting the right pitch or not as well as observing your vibrato technique. One thing that would have been possibly useful would be a numerical value by each note that displayed how close to pitch you are and also the ability to play a reference tone for your start note would help.
