I almost never write reviews for apps but this one felt like it deserves a praise. The UI is very appealing with neat colors and the makers of this app clearly did their research on user base because it caters to both beginners and professionals. I’ve been a musician for about six years now and a UX designer for three, and this is the first time I’m seeing two of my favorite things blend into one awesome entity. At first even I thought if it’ll be worth spending the money for and now I’ve realized the vast possibilities this app has to offer. Sometimes I get writers block when trying to come up with a piece and cannot really place the next chord in the sequence and also I’ve had hard time getting my head around different modes. This app surprisingly has it all and I’d highly recommend any musician to check it out.
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.
App is pretty good and fun to use. I recommend getting it to anyone who wants a better understanding of progressions. I would hope to see in the future options for saving chord progressions, making chord progressions that are longer than 8 bars, and possibly different instrument sounds. I think these are all relatively easy additions. I would also recommend an option to use chords from the parallel minor or modal interchange. This would be a tremendously better app if it had that. It would be worth way more money. I would even pay in app purchase for it if it worked well. I'd rather see it free but people need money. This app is good and is updated pretty regularly. I'd give it five stars if they manage to bring my suggestions to life. I'm hopeful because these don't seem like they would be incredibly hard to add to the already good UI. I would also like to point out a glitch where if you exit to home screen out of the app while having a chord progression being played it can make a horrible spazz noise. Overall really good app that's actually worth the price I'd buy it again.
This app is great for many different reason, but thought maybe it would be cool if you could change the chords up per measure and have triplet beats. This app is fun to tap the chords as the click track plays at different grooves almost like a sampler, it gives it that chopped sound that has and will always be so popular hip hop crowds. Would be cool to be able to record them as you tap them. I do understand that’s a great reason for the midi export but just a suggestion. Also, maybe I’m not smart enough to find it but is there a way to do inversions? Thanks keep making music fun.
This app is great, it is a really good tool for musicians. Although I think it could use some improvements: 1.) The ability to use different chord voicings would be great and is definitely something that would be helpful. Maybe use the piano to change the voicing. 2.) the way you change chords on your chord progression was kind of unintuitive to me especially when I’m trying to listen to a chord in my progression and then listen to other chords to use or follow up with and then I accidentally replace the chord in the progression. I’m not sure how to you would go about doing this because I know app design is difficult.
