This is a really nice tool to play around to seek inspirations- I would love to see that in the next update you can see the chords explained - so how to play them on a guitar or keyboard. Also it would be great to record and export as midi. That would make it a 5 star composing tool that I would be willing to pay good money for
Haven’t tried it yet!

See above
very limited in what it can do
by app3aday2 on 2019/08/15 01:21
hobbled by its lack of portrait support no help or tutorials pads keep playing until you hit the stop button no way to select minor keys no support for modes or scales
Great app for what it is

This app is amazing for coming up with chord progression ideas. I wish there was a way to customize the chords they give you, but it’s still an amazing tool to get a track started. Thanks guys keep doing you
Can’t see this working out for any composer

There is no directions way to clear the progressions the stop and arrows don’t appear to do anything more than stops down there is no progression to listen to or no menu to follow.
✨😍✨Brilliant app for music theory & creating music!!! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Having never gained a formal music education in my early years, I became a very very very basic self-taught acoustic guitar player as an adult. I'm still in the process of learning music theory, and I use this app to expand my knowledge of theory, keys, harmonics, chord progressions, etc. I also use this app for creative inspiration when songwriting, for figuring out songs I hear on the radio, and for just geeking out having fun with music. THANK YOU FOR MAKING SUCH A BRILLIANT APP!!!!
Interesting and valuable

We didn't learn to talk or sing by having to first read and write. Speaking and singing are natural. This app complements natural development. Used with the circle of 4th/5ths you should get more understanding of composition structure and can start to label these harmony ideas so you can return or refer to them.

It's so easy to use and so portable that I can come up with new songs anywhere without having my guitar. If you're able to swipe left or right for a key change (circle of 5ths) it would be perfect and I would happily pay more $. Highly recommend.
great app!

great app for someone who produces professionally that needs to constantly be pushing out new material. but i really like the synth sound itself and wish this app had a bluetooth setting so i could hook up my daw and have everything synced or whatever. i can still make it work by just hooking phone into interface but then have to record each chord separately so that i can map them out on my keyboard later.
Kids loved the improviser

My kids age 6 and 8 intuitively learned all the possible harmonic variations in this very interesting app and improvised whole musical symphonies from this tool
Tutorials or demo video?
by Rick57 on 2015/06/01 02:49
This seems like it has a lot of potential but I'm not quite sure how to use the app and had no luck finding any tutorials. If that should change, I will be happy to post a higher rating once I figure it out.
I buy too many apps....
by Rizzo Rapz on 2015/03/06 08:46
I don't know why I bought this...I already have piano suggester, chord bank...etc etc etc etc etc etc etc etc etc etc...this should only cost 99 cents...it Could be useful but I already have ATLEAST 5 or 6 others that do the same..if I never use this I won't feel totally gypd it's only $3 but a couple other app addicts and I'm sure these people and the likes will rack up fast.
Thumbs up

Just purchased for the paid version and it works perfectly. Will recommend it to my friends.
