FOR SERIOUS MUSICIANS.
You've mastered your part and have the notes down cold. And now you really want to explore the music, your role, and how you're going to make it come alive. Cadenza listens to you and follows you, freeing you to try out different approaches and hear what it's like to have the full, rich experience of the music, all responding to your playing.

CADENZA LEARNS YOUR STYLE
Cadenza will play right along with you. And when you finish a section, if you like how you played it, you can train Cadenza to match your tempo even more closely next time. (Playing with headphones lets Cadenza concentrate on your sound.)
After you've trained it, Cadenza will be so well synchronized with you, it will feel like a mind reader. (But remember, it is actually just an app.)
