Guide Track for iPad arrives

Guide Track arrives from the developer behind Different Drummer. Here’s the app’s description:

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 enter in 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.

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 song ideas or for recording aid.
