In this Riffmaster Pro review, we’ll cut straight to the chase and tell you that this software is actually a very good learning tool to help you improve your guitaring IF what you are after is software that helps you transcribe guitar parts by using your ear and developing your pitch recognition.
Easy to use
Even if you’re completely tech illiterate, Riffmaster Pro is very simple and straight forward to use. If you can import, playback and EQ songs in Windows Media Player or Apple iTunes, you’ll have no problems using the Riffmaster Pro software, it’s really that easy!
Riffmaster Pro nurtures you to improve your note and chord progression recognition skills and because of that, you develop a better musical ear. How does it do this for you? I’m glad you asked!
You can import your favourite song you want to learn into Riffmaster Pro software, adjust the playback speed and equalize it to bring out the guitar section a little more. By slowing down the playback of the song, you can work out much more easily that solo or chord progression. You can then practice along to the slower version until you’ve got the knack of that guitar part and gradually speed it up to original speed.
User friendly interface
This is all done through a user friendly interface. Speed, pitch and volume controls are all easily adjustable from the front panel of Riffmaster Pro along with EQ and the loop function. As the name suggests, it’s really handy being able to zoom in on that tricky 2 second phrase using the loop function and working out what exactly is happening in that section of a song. There are EQ presets just in case you don’t want to waste too much time fiddling with adjusting the EQ.
Learning to play by ear is very beneficial and can help you to develop your own playing style early on as you are interpreting what you hear on your own, working out your own methods of fretting notes all without the assistance of tablature. Let’s face it, a lot of free tablature that you can get online tends to be incorrect anyhow as we can’t be sure whether what was posted online was by a transcribing professional (most likely not) or by a youngster in his bedroom (more than likely)!
