Just found and am trying out Hookpad. It seems like a great program - if I could get it to work correctly..
Problem is, I want to hear what a guitar sounds like. No matter what I try, Hookpad just gives me Piano.................. A bit irritating and makes it kind of hard to move forward.
Those are Hookpad Plus subscription features only. You'll have to deal with only piano unless you want to pay $5 per month.
You can change the instrumentation temporarily with no subscription, but when you save and reload it will revert back to all piano.
I understood that one could not save the instrumentation temporarily without a subscription, that it would be reverted - but I am not saving, I just want to hear the other instruments to make sure the software actually works before I pay for it...
So what am I doing wrong so that I can just hear the different instruments?
It should switch to the other instrument when you have the tab play again.
