SongCatcher is the first fully functional recording studio environment for the iPhone, and is designed to make capturing musical ideas and working on them as fast and easy as possible. It is the first app to feature both Audio and MIDI recording, making it the ultimate solution for the songwriter that is looking for a sketchpad.

SongCatcher’s interface is designed around capturing creativity at the moment of inspiration, and includes innovative features such as Audio to MIDI conversion, allowing the user to sing in ideas, and have instruments play them back.

SongCatcher features 10 layers of recording. You have a resizable keyboard, 10 quality instruments (more available through in app store), a mixer, a MIDI editor, and you can record and layer live performances. You can build and arrange your ideas anywhere, anytime. You can email them home to your studio or next rehearsal.

SongCatcher has two interfaces, which are tailored specifically for the novice and professional.

Sketch mode offers the main functionality in a fast, easy to understand interface, tailored to the inexperienced music interface user. In the style of a wizard, you are walked through the process with prompts, and can build on your ideas within seconds.

Project Mode offers the full functionality of SongCatcher. Its layout is in the style of conventional music software, with all of the controls easily accessible and functional.

FOR iPOD TOUCH 2G and 3G users. There is a sound issue on this version. For many of these users, SongCatcher will produce sound with headphones if they are plugged in before the program is opened. Unfortunately we cannot guarantee this. Please try the LITE version if you would like to test this version on your hardware. We are working on a proper solution for the next update. Your patience is appreciated. SongCatcher works well on all other devices.

PLEASE NOTE: SongCatcher is optimised for iPhone 3GS and above. If you have an early version iPhone or iPod touch the software will work, but your handset has less processor power, which means you may experience audio glitches before you reach the full 10 layers of the software's capability. Please do not purchase if you intend to write a bad review based on this.

When I sing into it in a perfectly quiet room it sounds like I have a lisp. I don't please fix. Also get more then a keyboard.

3/5 stars

Still no sound

Whatever the fix was didn't work. Im using an iPod touch 3rd gen with the newest OS and still no sound.

0/5 stars


The interface is ugly, the menus are painful to navigate, and the design is completely unintuitive. Oh, and there's no sound. That's kind of a necessary feature for a sound-based program.

I paid $7.99, expecting a useful sound mixing program, but I am angrily disappointed. I want a refund.
