Through the power of 21st-century tech, Sit-ins expands on the old-world tradition of masters passing along their art to their students by playing together. The app combines audio, video, and notation of live professional chamber music performances. Players have the power to mute or play any combination of instruments, slow down without change in pitch, and loop.
