Riff. Record. Share

Riff Raters is an iPhone app that lets musicians record and share their riffs with the world. Listeners rate and comment on the music they hear, helping to determine which riffs make the Top 25.

Riffs are short repeated melodic phrases, usually lasting no more than twenty seconds like a musical tweets. Musicians can record original riffs on their iPhone/iTouch with any instrument. All instruments and musical styles are welcome: funky bass lines, blistering guitar work, intricate piano arrangements, cowbell solos, etc.

Even if you don't have an instrument to record a riff on Riff Raters, you can rate and comment on the riffs you hear, browsing by instrument, genre or musician. And as riffs become more popular, they rise up the charts. Fans even have the opportunity to be notified when their favorite riffers upload new riffs.

Riff Raters is for anyone who loves music and enables musicians to spread the news about their music and expand their fan base.

Get it... Riff, Record and Share!
