Mark Ireland Review- autumn 2014- This app is a real alternative to the printed score. Lots of content available to download- some with a vocalist singing and also a band backing track. This is just like having the band in your own studio with you providing the piano part!
NoteStar is Yamaha’s application for the iPad that features hands-free, smooth-flowing, easy to read digital sheet music matched with real audio backing tracks, complete with lead vocals.
Now in NoteStar, owners of compatible Yamaha keyboards can also use pedals to turn pages and hear the piano reference track broadcasted wirelessly or via cable to their instrument.
