Welcome to Sing Harmonies
Here's where you'll find more information and support for the Sing Harmonies iPhone App. Sing Harmonies is a great harmonizing tool with which singers can learn to sing vocal harmony by soloing or muting any combination of voices while playing 4-part vocal arrangements of pop, rock, jazz, country and traditional songs. The app also works on iPad and iPod Touch.

Sing Harmonies 2.0 is now available in the App Store--it includes three fully-produced songs: Lean On Me, Teach Your Children and Proud Mary. Many more songs can be added to the app via in-app purchase: the song list and song arrangement info are here. You can buy the app at the iTunes App Store for $1.99.
October 2014 News: we just discovered that for several weeks song suggestions sent from the app weren't getting through to us, though we did receive support emails. We've fixed the problem. If you sent a song request to us in September 2014 please send it again to firstname.lastname@example.org.
How to Use Sing HarmoniesThe singers are lined up left to right from the lowest to the highest voice (bass, tenor, alto, and soprano). Tap any singer to rotate through three volume settings: full, soft, and silent.
Our FAQs page has answers to many of the questions you may have about using the app and singing harmonies.

App navigation: Tap the blue menu icon in the upper left for the main menu. In the menu tap "Library" to view and/or choose songs in your library. Tap "Song Store" to view and/or choose song available to add to your library via in-app purchase. Tap "Player" to return to the singers.
To learn a part: Silence the three other singers. Sing along with the solo voice, with or without the music track, until you know the part. When you've learned your part, sing along with one or more of the other singers. You can sing along with your part or mute it; if you need a little help, play your part softly while the other voices are at full volume.
If you lose your place and start singing a different part: mute the other singers and play only your part until you are back on track, then add the other singers back in, one at a time, from lowest to highest.
If you keep losing your part when the other voices are singing: practice your part some more with only the music track. Make sure you can sing your part without the guide voice playing. Add in the lowest voice at soft volume. Concentrate on the music track and your part. When you can also listen to the other part without losing yours, increase the volume of other voice. When you can stay on your part with confidence, add another voice, using the same method.
