Shortcomings: Kids have tons of microphone issues from time to time, and it's NOT director friendly. Maybe I'm stupid but it's really difficult for me to navigate and assign things.
For the kids, it's pretty accurate on moderately easy things. For the older kids on fast runs, good luck. It's a precise robot, and if you play like a human at all, it will count your notes wrong. Also trills are counted wrong because it registers as 2 notes.... Lots of bugs but it's a cool tool for beginners and non varsity.
