Down to the River to Pray
Welcome to Sing Harmonies
The Android version of the Sing Harmonies App is on hiatus for some tuning up. We hope to release an update soon. If you've had any problems with the Android version please send us your device and operating system and the tech team will try to include that on their update list.
December 2017: the Sing Harmonies Android Version is Here!
We now have an Android version of the Sing Harmonies App available on Google Play. It works just like the iOS version and comes loaded with three harmony songs: Lean On Me, Teach Your Children, and Swing Low, Sweet Chariot. All of the 38 additional songs available for the iOS version are also available for the Android version via in-app purchase. Detailed song info is here. If you like the app please leave us a review on Google Play.
July 2017: Sing Harmonies 3.2 Has Ten New Songs and "One Love" is Back

We've added ten new songs to the app, all available via in-app purchase. This new batch includes “Take it Easy”, "Imagine", “Down to the River to Pray”, and “The Longest Time”. The complete list and details about the songs are on our Song Info page. We also added the correct version of "One Love" which we removed from the app a few months ago. If you purchased it previously tap "restore purchases" in the Song Store to download it for free. More details on that are on the Tech Help page. The android version will include all these songs and should be available later in 2017.

Updating Sing Harmonies
When you update the app you'll need to restore any IAP songs you've already purchased to your library. To do that go to Menu>Song Store. In the Song Store tap 'restore purchases' in the upper right-hand corner. You should soon receive a message saying "Restore purchase complete", then your songs will need to download again which can take awhile. Once they are restored you won't need to restore them until you update the app again.
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.

How to Use Sing Harmonies
Our FAQs page has answers to many of the questions you may have about using the app and singing harmonies.
To turn the music track on or off: tap the band.
To view and/or choose another song: go to the library, or tap the previous or next arrows.
To see these instructions on the app: tap the information icon in the upper right.
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.
