This is kind of a neat thing.

Apple on Wednesday unveiled a new Music Memos app designed to help musicians and songwriters store ideas on the go.

The app uses the iPhone’s built-in microphone can be used to record instruments in a lossless format, and the resulting recordings can be analyzed for rhythm and chords.

Users can then add instant drums and a bass line to help flesh out the song, and it will also provide a basic notation view. Music Memos are synchronized via iCloud and can be opened directly in GarageBand or Logic Pro X.

Music Memos launched with support from some big-name artists, including singer-songwriter Ryan Adams.
Music Memos is still rolling out through iTunes, but will be available as a free download from the App Store.

The app requires iOS 9.1 or later to install and run and is available for free.
