SongTool for iOS combines advanced audio playback with an intuitive interface. Users are encouraged to live dangerously and start pushing buttons. Audio files on your device are never altered, so you won’t break anything. In case you need a manual, detailed discussions of each interface element are on this page. If you have questions, suggestions, or difficulties with SongTool, please contact me on social media or via the Contact page on the website.
SongTool's bottom toolbar allows you to quickly shuffle the current queue, repeat the current song, and save speed and pitch settings for the current song. A quick start section is available by selecting Help. You can access the song listing at any time by pressing Songs.
The listing section shows the songs currently loaded in SongTool. Press add to bring up the media picker and load songs from your iTunes library. You can select a song for playback directly from the list. If a song has saved settings associated with it, a 'Saved' icon will display in the song information.
Pressing Edit will allow you to rearrange and remove songs from the listing. Doing this will only affect the songs within SongTool. Your iTunes Library is never modified.
SongTool’s play/pause and arrow buttons behave like most other audio players. Fast forward and rewind are available by holding down the arrow buttons. Single presses on the arrow buttons will load the previous or next song in the list. You can use the slider to scrub to a new playback position in the song.
Speed and Pitch Controls
SongTool gives you complete control of song playback. Speed and pitch can be controlled independently and any adjustments can be saved for later recall.
Playback speed can be varied from %50 to %150, in any of three ways. Use the slider for quick adjustment or enter the desired speed in the box for precise control. The buttons at the bottom will quickly move the speed up or down in 5% increments or reset the speed to normal.
Playback pitch can be varied from -600 cents to +600 cents, giving a full octave of transposition. Use the slider for quick adjustment or enter the desired pitch change in the box for precise control. The buttons at the bottom will quickly move the pitch up or down in 100 cent increments from the current pitch or reset the pitch to normal.
SongTool for iOS uses the same equalizer as iTunes on your device. Simply enable the equalizer and choose a preset.
