I use this app for intonation purposes and it’s really useful for that! However I think it would be much improved if you could implement accidentals easier, (I.e. A7#5) as opposed to chords which are strictly diatonic. Also if the app could loop while the phone is locked that would help me not kill my battery life while practicing. I mainly have been using it for a drone with a metronome so I can’t speak much on the recording functions, but they seem relatively intuitive, especially if you’re new to understanding harmony. It’s cool to be able to visually pair chords with extensions and not have to worry about intervals. I used to use other apps to drone chords but honestly this one is quick and super simple to use, once the app is open you can immediately start, it’s not like it has a long loading time or anything.
First of all, this is immediately one of my favorite chord progression sandboxes. Don’t get me wrong. The fact that it integrates with the minimoog Model D synth app to play the notes and supports Ableton/MIDI output is extremely exciting. However, there are some significant missing features that I’d expect from an app claiming to take on the scope that it does such as a metronome, a record button, and setting the timing signature. It’s hard to tell how the chord progression will sound until you’ve already dragged the chords to the odd/uncomfortable band at the top of the screen... would honestly be easier to just record it. It’s like the length in bars is too flexible... let me pick the timing signature (e.g. 3/4) and a fixed number of bars for the loop. Really, I think the UX needs to be rethought a bit and some basic features for recording a track need to be added. With refinement, this could be the best songwriting tool an EDM songwriter could have... right now it feels like more of an open beta. Disappointing to spend $9 on what feels like an unfinished product but I would gladly invest more if the developer(s) stay active.
I have been searching for something like this to replace my piano apps and voice memos. I am a composer and spend most my time writing in my studio; however, I needed a quick way to record ideas and compose snippets on the go and at the time an melody pops into my head. Instead of singing, humming into a voice memo or playing my piano app and trying to memorize the part real quick. Anyway, I would only suggest to the dev to add a more practical way of changing tempo and making an option for triplets at a smaller level. You can write quarter note triplets but nothing smaller, forcing you to redesign your note layout, and adjusting the bpm. Regardless, this app is still a perfect app for what I intend to use it for but I could see it being very limited if people were to use it as a platform for full composition.
The chords are given only in basic diatonic scales with 0 ability to explore outside of it. This isn’t much better than sitting at my keyboard and playing all the white keys in thirds (hitting the “transpose” button to get different key centers). The sharps and flats are straight up wrong for many of these. Why is it showing me “G#” and “A#” for C minor? C minor is a three flats key. This isn’t hard to program correctly. My last beef is that the chords are played in the most clunky, uninspired voicings possible. Basic root position, in thirds, no spread whatsoever. This app could be so good if JUST THIS was fixed. Give it a bass octave, spread the extensions to the higher octaves, voice things in fifths and fourths, etc. There’s also 0 voice leading from chord to chord, which adds even more to how primitive it sounds. There’s no harmonic motion. Even without letting you escape the diatonic scale, voicing the chords to actually sound good would be way cooler for iOS music production. You already have stored all of these extended chords; just spread their voicings out, and employ some basic internal ability to voice lead even just the extensions.
First warning is that it’s not notch safe, and the notch does disable creation of sections completely. You will have to just do one long section. Editing notes on the notch is also impacted, but it’s doable. If you just want to export midi to arrange in your DAW like me, it’s still worth using, but this is still false advertising. The piano roll is clunky and awkward, but this is always the case with a touch screen. Placing notes is easy enough, but moving, deleting, highlighting and changing length is painful. It does get easier, but the lack of documentation makes it very frustrating, because you get it to work, then try to figure out why it worked. Now, when it comes to writing music, this app really shines. Creating a chord progression is very intuitive, but the highlighted piano roll really is a game changer when it comes to melodies and basslines. The documentation seems to just be some quick videos, but they’re extremely unclear as to how the gestures really work.

Find Chords that Work
In the chord palette your can explore chords that are available in your selected scale. While a chord is played, related chords are highlighted so you can
easily find chord sequences that progress smoothly. Once you found a nice chord sequence, you can drag and drop chords into your song to build your composition upon it.
If you want to start your song with a melody and find a suitable chord progression, you can do that just as well: select notes and tap the search icon to show chords that match your melody fragment. It's real fun to experiment, seeing how different harmonic contexts affect the perception of the same melodic fragment.
Create Beautiful Melodies and Flowing Chord Progressions
In the piano roll, notes that are in harmony as well as the chords' root notes are highlighted. This makes it super easy to create leads, arpeggios and basslines and to experiment with different chord voicings to let your chord progressions flowing nicely.
A simple, yet feature rich and context-aware user interface helps you build up your ideas into whole songs:
Group sections into song parts and arrange them via drag and drop.
Duplicate, copy and paste, playback selected notes.
Export and share your creations with audio file export.
Edit your song in other Apps with MIDI-file export.
Use your Favorite Instrument Apps
It's just more fun to explore and create with those awesome Instrument Apps that are available in the App Store: Klimper supports Inter-App-Audio Instruments like Animoog and Model 15 as well as Audio Unit Instruments like Ripplemaker and Mersenne.
