The key features of Songbird include:

  • Real instrument sounds
  • Tap, slide, shake, tilt, blow
  • Express music with your whole body
  • Play in any key
  • Richly satisfying breath response
  • Will not feedback in noisy environments
  • Plays with iPod/music apps in the background
  • Learn songs and music easily with tabs
  • Tabs scroll with backing tracks and speed control
  • Tasteful reverb and delay settings
