New in Capo 4.0

Whats new header

Capo now ships with our latest, most advanced chord detection technology, and includes brand-new tools for structuring and visualizing your songs.

New Features

Chord intelligence mkiv icon

Chord Intelligence mkIV

Our fourth major version of Capo's chord detection engine is now far more accurate, and identifies a wider range of chords—even inversions!

We worked on this technology for over two years, using Apple's latest machine learning APIs to build our own custom training and evaluation environment that will help us ensure that Capo remains on the cutting-edge for years to come.

NOTE: Requires macOS 10.14 Mojave or later

Structure song view icon

Structure Song View

You can now see and mark up your songs at a high level—bar by bar—to define the sections of the song. Mark the Verse, Chorus, A Section, B Section, or use whatever names you choose! You can also apply colors to the sections to help you identify similar ones.

In addition, you can use the Structure song view's tools to edit Capo's beat grid. With these new tools, Capo can better support songs that have mixed time signatures, and recordings that cause havoc with Capo's beat detector.

NOTE: Requires macOS 11 Big Sur

Chord song view icon

Chords Song View

An all-new, vertically-scrolling look at the chords in your song displays more chords on screen at the same time. It also uses the sections you define in the Structure song view to group the chords according to the section they belong in.

NOTE: Requires macOS 11 Big Sur
