4th Generation Chord Detection (macOS 10.14+ Only)
Capo's newest chord detection engine is faster, more accurate, and identifies a wider range of chords—including inversions! If you'd like to read more about the development of this new technology, visit our blog at supermegaultragroovy.com.
You can re-detect and replace all the chords in your existing Projects by choosing Notes > Detect All Chords from the main menu.
Structure Song View (Subscription Only)
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.
Many users will be excited to learn that this all-new song view also allows you to edit Capo's beat grid that's used to power Capo's snapping and metronome features. By clicking along with the beat to mark the start of each bar, you can replace Capo's detected beats with your own. You can also change the number of beats in specific bars when you're working with songs that have mixed time signatures, and make fine adjustments to improve precision.
Chords Song View (Subscription Only)
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.
This is a massive improvement for chord-oriented musicians that are looking to analyze a song's overall harmony, or those that want a better view of what's coming ahead.
Trial Mode (Paid, Non-Subscribers)
If you are a paid user that has not yet subscribed to Capo Pro, you can try the new, subscription-only features as many times as you'd like, for as long as you'd like! Just select one of the song views that are marked TRIAL, and Capo will let you play with the feature with only one catch—your edits to the project will no longer be saved.
Don't see anything worth paying for? No problem! Close the project, and you'll be back to using Capo as usual. We will keep trying to earn your subscription in future releases, and hope you enjoy the massive improvements to the chord detection engine!
Improved Free Edition
The free version of Capo no longer has a playback timer! You now have full access to Capo's full feature set, but Capo will not save any of your edits to Projects without an active subscription.
This change results in a more useful product for a wider audience. Teachers, be sure to tell all your students!
- We modified the Simple Piano chord display to make it easier to distinguish the bass note from the others.
- Capo no longer crashes in the chord chooser when searching for chord inversions
- We addressed a handful of crashes that were submitted by users since the last release. Please keep sending us your bug reports!
