Quick Start

Syncphonia consists of two apps: a Conductor app and a Performer app.

The Conductor app displays the full score and controls the tempo. The Performer apps display individual parts which are synchronised to the beat set on the Conductor app. The tempo can be fixed automatically, like a metronome, or varied expressively as traditional conducting. The bar and beat are highlighted, so nobody can get lost.

The current release comes with 8 free introductory scores. In future versions, coming soon, you will be able to buy other arrangements from the store or upload your own scores exported from Sibelius, MuseScore, or downloaded in MusicXML.

If you would like to trial this feature for free as part of our partnership programme, Get in Touch.

How does it work?

Local wireless network communication

The apps communicate via bluetooth 4 - that means no need to connect to the internet, no issues with local networking, and very low latency. Just turn on bluetooth and open the apps. We have tested up to 25 devices up to a distance of 30 meters without error.
