Apps: Form a band

Here are three apps that any budding musicians can use on their way to forming a band


VAMPR
Free, ,
First, find bandmates. With Vampr you make a profile of your musical tastes and skills, and then swipe, Tinder-style, through other posters, or wait to be ed. You can chat in-app before agreeing to meet.

JAMTRACKS
Free,
Now to rehearse — even if you’re spread across the world. This app lets you jam along to nearly 4,000 backing tracks. Once you’re tight, get the band playing live at its sister site JamKazam.

SETLIST HELPER
Free, ; £6.99,
Ready to gig? This app holds all your songs and puts them into setlists to share with other members — so no surprising the band with your “new material” halfway through.
