ability to lower volume or mute "coaching voice"
the "Well done, you can continue to the next exercise' ... or "almost perfect, next time you'll nail it" ... or whatever is said at the end of the song.. becomes repetitive and annoying pretty quick.. it is also often louder than the music we're practicing.. please give us options to turn it off.. or at least down....
Thank you for voting!
The voice-over can now be muted by sliding down the “Sound Effects” volume slider available in the app’s settings.
WHHHHHAAAAAATTTT 4 years later !!! Yes !! Thanks the Baby Jesus and Other Magical Babies

Try slowing down in practice more is so annoying
Im 3 or 4 weeks in, I dread the “try slowing down in practice mode”. So many better ways for me to learn what im missing, beside messing it up slower in practice mode.
Honestly I just cancelled my subscription. They're not listening to us. This is an easy fix but instead of dedicating a couple days to code an update they just laugh. Customer Lost Yousician !
It annoys me when Yousician is lurching and jumping all over the place, and then the voice says "work on your timing to get a higher score"
2 years ago I posted this request...
I get it they have to work on bigger thing but 2 years ...

The lowering or muting of the coaching voice was first brought to your attention in August 15, it is now May 17. I believe you have had long enough to sort this issue out.
I ( like all other users) pay for the privilege, so out of respect this problem needs to be addressed ASAP!!! It is seriously starting to piss me right off. Secondly I do not appreciate being ignored.
Show me some pride in your work, and users some respect, get off you arse and fix it!!!!!!
Please understand your product os awesome, with what many perceive as a glitch that needs some immediate attention!
Please sort this out, NOW.
Love ya work.
I find the "Slow it down and play in practice mode" etc, extremely annoying. Please offer the option to turn them all off.

PLEASE let us mute this stuff! I only want silence when I'm not working on a song or exercise or watching a video. All the other noise is completely unnecessary and distracting.

I figured out how to mute them on a Mac. Someone on a PC will have to figure it out. iPad probably won't happen.
The audio is stored as .ogg files inside the application package (path below). Convert their files to wav using http://sbooth.org/Max/ and then open them in any app that can edit wavs. (I used Audiofinder) Lower the volume to 0 or -15db if you still want to hear them a bit and resave the wavs. Then convert them back to .ogg and replace them in the application with the same filename. Now when I'm done playing a calming piece, I don't have a rock drumroll with a guy talking, blasting in my ears so much that I want to rip my eyelids off.
If you still want to hear the volume a bit you'll have to replace all the files, if you only want to mute them, all you need to do is create one blank .ogg file about 5k in size. Just replace all of them with the blank and make sure the names all match.
It sounds like a lot of work, but about 30 minutes will save you not wanting to cancel your subscription. It would take the programmers 10 minutes to program a volume control so I'm not sure what they're waiting on. Obviously it's affecting a lot of people.
Save your files separately, because when they update the app, you’ll have to redrop them into the new Application, which will be an easy job because they’ll already be made.
Go to Applications and right click on Yousician Launcher.app and choose Show Package Contents.

The sound effects and the speaker voice are way too loud compared to the background music. And the piano sound is very faint. At least on iPad Pro using MIDI.
This was one of the main reasons I cancelled my premium subscription and went back to free.
If I wasn't continually being nagged that my timing was off when learning songs, or how great it was that i got all but a few notes when trying to perfect one I would consider paying again.
As it stands I will prefer to go off and play using downloaded tabs in GuitarPro
The coach volume is WAY too high compared to the music and is a BIG annoyance. Please give us an option to turn down this score/coach volume! It is a must and a simple fix for you, Yousician devs.
Practicing a guitar is hard enough for a beginner. If then some dude mocks me after my try, this gets frustrating.
Also I do not want to see my timing after the try. I know, that I am no good. I will get better in time, and I actually got the idea, that I get better scores with better timing on the first time it was said.
Please! It is not that complicated a update.
ARE YOU SERIOUS !!! THIS HUGE BLOODY UPDATE AND YOU COULD ADD DISABLE THE COACH OPTION !!!
Look just tell me where the audio files are located and I'll replace them myself with

Is it really that hard to add an option to "mute coach" or something to that affect? It's frustrating enough that perfectly played chords and notes aren't recorded correctly during some of the tests, having Yousician tell me to Try Again over and over and over makes me want to stop practicing altogether rather than continue to try and improve. Thank you.
