  1. Ghost notes (dead notes) lessons for Bass

    It would be awesome to have lessons on muted/ghost notes. Muting is talked about briefly, but really we need lesson videos, and SONGS to play with these muted notes. Almost every genre has bass playing with "ghost" notes which are muted notes played for bass and there are a few songs in Yousician with them, but there is no lesson. It seems a huge omission. Lesson and lots of practice songs with muted notes. Once these lessons and songs (at various levels) are there, then any song with muted notes can be played (Premium Plus songs have muted notes [e.g.…

  2. Add buffer size setting for piano MIDI input for desktop/laptop

    I desperately miss a buffer size setting for piano MIDI input in the desktop app. With my current setup (E-Piano connected to Windows PC via USB cable) I'm struggling with serious latency issues, which makes Yousician hardly enjoyable. Please implement a buffer size setting for piano MIDI input for the desktop app. Apparently it is available for Yousician mobile apps (iOS, Android). So why not for desktop/laptop?

  3. Please reposition "yousician has trouble hearing your guitar dialog"

    When entering practice mode, I stumble every single time over the same inconvinience. Yousician starts playing the song once entering the practice mode immediately. However, my first activity in many cases is adjusting the speed (therefore I am in practice mode). However, as soon as the first notes are coming up (and I am not playing since I want to adjust the speed), the "trouble" dialog immediately appears and... it shadows the speed adjustment button.

    I KNOW that you cannot hear me, since I am not playing because I want to adjust the speed. Stopping the song does not make…

  5. Fix Note Catcher (voice)

    Note catcher needs more feedback, I have no idea if I'm too high or to low when I miss a note. Also note if i'm in the octave above or below.

  6. List the song tempo / rhythm and key

    Just showing the tempo (number), rhythm and key for a song. When I'm trying to play a song in Yousician from memory, it would be nice to have this basic info.

  7. Weekly challenge for Premium+ songs

    For those of us who are motivated by some healthy competition the weekly challenges are a big part of what makes Yousician fun. So when playing the Premium+ songs you sort of miss the competition a bit.

    Adding another weekly challenge for Premium+ songs shouldn't require too much development work. And it would also be a great way to introduce new Premium+ songs.

  9. Separate stars for tab versus notes in song lists

    Can there be way to select notation type in song list windows (e.g. my rep, pop, history etc) that shows separate star counts? I have gold starred a lot of songs with tabs but now I am going back and doing with std notation. Would like to see my star scores for notation.

  10. Option to disable all premium + adverts when already having a subscription

    The idea is simple. I know about premium + but I’m also having no interest in it. For paying customers as myself it should be possible to deactivate the bar with the the upgrade button and the display of all premium songs.

    Simply add a deactivate slide option under the settings.

  11. Make a subscribtion that includes all popular songs but only includes one instrument.

    Because many people like me can't afford to pay for premium+ just to get popular songs. Most people using yousician want popular songs but only want to learn one instrument, so I suggest we have a subscribtion between premium and premium+ which includes all popular songs but only one instrument of choice.

  12. Yousician team should be more active with the community

    I find it very surprising that Yousician can afford not to actively foster the community of users and customers they have. I don't really see any comments from the Yousician staff to any of these ideas posted by users (it's free product development feedback!), nor do I see Yousician being active on the discussion forums. I understand that some decisions like removing the user generated content may not have been popular, but typically I would at least expect some basic level of decency with a proper thank you for the feedback even if there are no plans to react as…

  13. A proposal for tweaking the strum pattern notation tp make it easier to read

    I find the the strumming way strumming patterns are presented to be incredibly difficult for my brain to parse. I think the problem is two fold.

    1. You can't easily see the misses in regular strum patterns, the one's where you hand is moving, but you do not strum.

    2. The point of the array feels like I should be doing something. A fast up down that you let ring out for a long time will have a short little arrow followed by a super wide arrow. It looks like two totally different sorts of notes, even though the action is the…

  14. Instrument control of the app (restart song etc)

    instead of having to tap on stuff in the app, you should be able to use your instrument to navigate. For example:

    note for up

    note for down

    note for select

    note for back

  15. Separate audio settings for each instrument

    I have a guitar in my first audio input and a mic in may second audio input. Changing from guitar syllabus to voice syllabus requires me to change audio settings. This is a bit annoying. Could we have separate audio settings for each instrument?

  16. Add Standard notation to Yousician Voice

    Yousician Voice is awesome for learning to sing, but the custom way it displays notes isn’t ideal for learning to sight-sing from standard sheet music. Could you please add a Standard Notation option, like the other instruments have?

  17. Practise old songs/techniques with no limit on free accounts

    To be able to practise songs/exercises/etc that have already been completed when on a free account. New lessons/etc are still daily but the lack of being able to practise newly learnt thing and then using up the daily limit by doing this, rather than new techniques/lessons etc is frustrating and offputting to continue using the app

  19. Option to control backing track volume on guitar/bass/piano/uke/singing

    Let's say I play a song for the first time. Hearing the instrument sound played in the mix is nice to have, as it gives an idea of how I'm supposed to sound. Once I learned it, it would be great if I could control that backing track volume with a slider, even mute it, so I can hear all the details of my playing in the mix.

    These backing tracks with the instrument playing the same notes tend to mask mistakes that would be heard otherwise.

    this feature could be implemented automatically to the instrument one is learning.

  20. Ensure the player is playing the note for the right length

    It is very important for a player to the get the length right and yet, it's a major drawback of Yousician, which only checks is the note is pressed at the right time. However, if the player plays a 4 beat note for 1 beat Yousician is happy - this is wrong.

    I understand this is complicated to do with out MIDI but with MIDI it's certainly possible and should be enforced. It might put people with MIDI in challenges at a disadvantage but we are here ultimately to learn the piano, not to win challenges.
