NomadPlay is an innovative music platform that allows you to play virtually alongside prestigious musicians and musical ensembles. With NomadPlay, you can mute any instrument in a recording and take the place of the original musician with the accompaniment of the other performers.
NomadPlay is aimed at all musicians, regardless of whether they are beginners or professionals.
NomadPlay gives you the opportunity to play alongside renowned performers, to develop your listening skills and to improve your performance of classical and jazz pieces.
If you are part of an orchestra or a choir, NomadPlay can help you better prepare for your rehearsals.
The product of five years of research, NomadPlay relies on an innovative algorithm that allows the separation of audio content. Artificial intelligence enables this algorithm to be used to mute any instrument in a live or studio recording.
Our recordings are all created with real musicians – no MIDI audio is used. They may be:
Tracks provided by labels, publishers or signed artists
Productions or co-productions recorded by our teams in a studio or during live concerts
Currently, our catalogue mainly offers “classical” pieces created between the 15th and 21st centuries.
You will also find jazz standards and pedagogical pieces.
Everyone should be able to benefit from the joy of music, so NomadPlay also offers pieces suitable for beginners!

In the app, go to the “Search” tab, then select the filter icon to the right of the search bar. This is the quickest way to find pieces in our catalogue that are of interest to you. It is possible to search by instrument, skill level, composer and even performer.
Note: You can also apply filters when you have already entered keywords into the search bar.
On the sheet music screen, you can enable or mute an instrument track as required by clicking on its icon in the reader bar below the sheet music. A cross through the instrument means that the track has been muted.
If you wish to change the muted instrument, select a different instrument in the list under the title of the piece. The sheet music will change automatically.
Currently, it is only possible to mute a single instrument or vocal track.
Yes! You can re-enable your instrument at any time by clicking on the icon at the bottom left of the sheet music screen. If your instrument does not have a cross through it, this means that the audio track has been enabled.
This allows you to practise “alongside” the musician before you replace them by muting the instrumental or vocal track once you feel more comfortable doing so.
On the sheet music screen, select “Loop” in the toolbar. Select the start bar and end bar, then start the music by clicking on “Play”.
The marked section will repeatedly loop automatically to enable you to work on the section you want.
When you no longer want to work on a looped section, click on the “Loop” icon again.
All you need to do is click directly on the bar you want. If the bar is a reprise, you will also need to specify where in the performance you wish to start from. To start, click on “Play”.
You can speed up or slow down the tempo of the recording as required by selecting the “Tempo” function in the toolbar. This function does not affect the sound quality of the recording and allows you to rehearse at your own pace.
When you enter annotations for a piece of music using the “Annotate” tool in the app, your annotations will be saved automatically as you enter them.
The next time you open your sheet music, you will see your annotations straight away, regardless of whether you log in through the app or through our website.
On the sheet music screen, go to the “Settings” menu at the top right. Here, you can replace the audible countdown with a visual countdown, modify the length, or disable it entirely by deselecting it.
To add a title to your favourites, select the heart on the page of the piece. A solid heart means that the piece has been added to your favourites and can be accessed from the “My Titles” menu.
The “Download” function allows you to make use of your pieces even if you are not connected to the internet. Once downloaded, they will be accessible in the “My Titles” menu.
Note: To be able to download a piece, you first need to have subscribed or to have purchased the piece. If you cancel your subscription, downloaded titles will no longer be available in your account.
If you have subscribed or have purchased a piece, you can download a piece by opening it, then clicking on “Download”. This function allows you to access your pieces even without an internet connection. If you are connected to the internet, you do not need to download pieces to play them.
Once downloaded, they remain accessible in the “My Titles” menu.
Note: This option is only available in the smartphone and tablet app.
For licensing reasons, it is not possible to print our sheet music at this time.
We are currently working on developing this feature.
To make the most of our recordings, simply connect your device to your speakers – the audio output should be transmitted automatically.
First, check that you are logged into the same account that you used to make your purchase. If you still cannot see it, please send the relevant invoice to email@example.com. We will look into your enquiry as quickly as possible so that you can make use of your purchase.
Depending on your audio configuration, the bar on the sheet music may not be in time with the recording. In this case, please adjust the latency in the “Settings” menu at the top right of the sheet music.
Of course! All you need to do is log in to the same NomadPlay account. If you encounter any problems – even minor ones – please do not hesitate to write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you could not successfully reset your password, check that you are not logged in via a Google, Facebook or Apple account. If you are a subscriber or have purchased a piece, the email address linked to your account should be quoted on your invoices.
In case of doubt, please do not hesitate to write to us.
