Works with DAWs (local MIDI or desktop wireless). Musix Pro is the most innovative app for performing music. Music theory is baked right in through the use of a technique called isomorphic note layouts. Novices learn to play in minutes, and professionals benefit from built-in harmonic relationships between notes. Unlike other music apps, Musix Pro provides a wide range of octaves, scales, keys, chords and modes, without limiting your creativity. With multiple built-in instruments and support for OSC and Core/Virtual Midi, most existing synthesizers work beautifully with Musix Pro as a controller.

Traditional musical instruments are difficult to learn because notes are arranged based on physical constraints. Musix Pro arranges notes based on their harmonic and musical relationships instead, allowing shapes and patterns to emerge that unlock the mathematical beauty of music.

Musix Pro is key agnostic, which means is that once you have learned a musical pattern (like a chord or a scale) that pattern is the same for all keys, even the dreaded A-Flat! Sharps and flats appear in the right place automatically, through the mathematical magic of isomorphism. You can learn to play melodies on a traditional keyboard by playing them on Musix Pro and watching where the sharps and flats go.

Songwriters benefit by discovering new melodies and musical relationships. Novices find it easy to learn to play. Experienced musicians are rewarded with an intuitive interface. Keys can be resized to fit your style - start with "epic"-sized keys, and as you get better you can shrink the keys fill the screen with notes.

Isomorphic keyboards are found on traditional and new instruments, from concertinas, accordions, and "jammers" to Janko keyboards, harmonic-table devices and more. Musix Pro is the only way to access all isomorphic note arrangements in one powerful customizable application.

Musix Pro comes with a set of built-in layouts, each with its own pros and cons. The harmonic table layout allows you to play any major chord by touching three hexes with one finger. Wicki-Hayden makes modulating between pentatonic scales a breeze. Try them all and find one that works for you.

Musix Pro allows you to change the colour of the notes in your layout. You can colour the notes white and black like a piano; you can colour the notes of any scale or mode (like D-flat mixolidian) and you can colour notes based on tone centre.

All features work great but in the iPhone version midi out to daw is not supported. There is no mention of this in the description. Only reason I bought it. A very expensive app for limited functionality merits 2 stars in my book. I suggest thumbjam if you're looking for a midi controller with scales

Developer Response

Hello, Midi out to daw is supported if your daw can accept standard midi signals. What type of setup do you have?



I find myself becoming stale in my playing every once in a while and when this happens I look for ways to change things up. This app does it for me. I simply select what pattern I want the notes to appear on the screen and once I learn how the notes to ascend and descend, I can start noodling around. Another reviewer mentioned the lack of velocity control being sent to other apps. I agree that this would be an important feature, but I'm still very impressed with this app. It's too bad that the iPad doesn't have a larger screen. Making the votes larger and still have a lot of notes on the screen would make this an even better app. Unfortunately, app developers really have no control over the hardware they're developing for. This app gets my thumbs up vote.

This app is working great for me, no hiccups at all. (Okay, every once in a while a note won't play.) I love a creative musical interface, and this is one. I love being able to choose from different logical note layouts that bring new melodic and harmonic possibilities to the fore, mixing visual and audio creativity. I use the rainbow color scheme and turn the note names off, just letting my sense of color and pattern lead me. I haven't done anything with the app's builtin sounds; the MIDI works fine, connected with Thor or Thumbjam or whatever. I would like to see some other controls -- like maybe a volume slider, pitch bend or mod wheel -- added, so I hope the dev is still working on this.
