  • Please make one for guitar

    By wizman228
    Good app but I misread when it said for all instruments I assumed this meant guitar. While the theory and progressions apply to all instruments the app is specifically for keyboards. Would be great (for me) if this was modified for guitar with chords and scales with diagrams. But well done and easy on the eyes. Not too much theory just enough
  • Wow

  • Great tool to develop melody

    By Drummer 24
    Great app😀 Only wish I could somehow sing a melody above the recorded progression but also have that record in the app simultaneously. It could be a great foundation for melodic development and ultimately lyrics!! It would also be great if you could get more rows of progressions too. I realize that you can repeat the rows of progressions, but even two more rows and you would have the ability to fully compose a song with a bridge/intro/outro. Now it’s kind of just verse chorus. Now that would be 5 star! Nonetheless fantastic app for the sake of theory! Thanks for all the hard work!!
  • Thank you

    Thank you so much
  • Keys sounding crackle like

    By Forestmbrown
    This app was amazing until the recent update I’m assuming? Now when a note is played it plays along with a crackle sound as if the speaker on my phone were to be going out. However this is not the case. Music plays through my phone speakers just fine. This app is the only issue.
  • Awesome app!

    By shayne008
    Really enjoy this app plus all the different modes. One small suggestion is to make a way to rename the midi files.

  • Fun and super helpful for writing songs!

    Great little app, very helpful for composing and actually hearing chord progressions back for those who don't have relative and perfect pitch. The only thing is that I would love for more customizations of the chords, namely inversions (even in combination with four note chords) and different rhythms that aren't 4/4. Right now, the root of the chord is always on the bottom. Inversions add a different color to the chord and are very widely used in songs and compositions. Some chords in the context of a certain progression just aren't the same sound without inversions. As for rhythms, it would be helpful for more control over how many bars a progression is and how many beats are in a bar. Right now, it's always 4 beats to a bar. Either 4 or 8 bars. I don't think adding different time signatures would be incredibly difficult nor adding custom length of bars any amount between (2-8). Also, adding chord changes within a bar would be awesome. That would add more complexity, sure, but the app for have so much value for making fully realized chord progressions for a song or composition. Other than those things, a solid app with lots of potential for improvement. I'm sure the inversions and rhythms features can be included in a future update.
  • One of the best music iOS apps ever made

    Title says it all. Absolutely stunning development and layout of a crucial aspect of music theory. Brilliant.

    needs the following: ability to save progressions so they can be worked on later more progressions and proper names of them
