Description

HARMONYWIZ is an advanced harmonic generator which can create multi-part harmony, all just from inputting a single musical line. You can paint your music in or play it from a piano style keyboard. You compose it and HarmonyWiz will arrange it!
After an arrangement is created, the app provides harmonic analysis and displays a notation system known as Figured Bass.
Enter the Expert mode and you will have access to manage all the tracks in your arrangement with our editing tools.
Select different preset sound ensembles or create your own.
HarmonyWiz. Entertaining and fun for all ages, but also a valuable educational tool for music students and can be used for advanced editing by industry professionals.

IMAGINARY PRAISE FOR HARMONYWIZ:
“I wrote my first composition at age four. Too bad I didn’t have HarmonyWiz so that I could’ve had an even earlier start.”
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

“HarmonyWiz is a great tool for composers like myself. If I had HarmonyWiz when I was a young man, I could have composed a symphony every day.”
Ludwig van Beethoven

REAL PRAISE FOR HARMONYWIZ:
“HarmonyWiz is such a fun and awesome compositional tool! Perfect for helping any musician unlock and explore endless creative harmonic possibilities. It’s practically like having your own digital writing partner at your fingertips. The only problem for Jordan, is that if he keeps this up, he may just “tech” himself right out of a job!
John Petrucci (Guitarist of Dream Theater)

ABOUT THE CREATORS:
Jordan Rudess explains, I always felt that a composer’s thought process would be fascinating to capture in code. I’ve wanted to do an app like this for a long time and, upon meeting developer, Ruben Zilibowitz, it finally has become possible. Ruben has spent years studying classical music texts such as Schoenberg's Theory of Harmony. He started by writing out four-part phrases by hand. Eventually, he was able to translate this process into computer code that could generate natural musical phrases. Through hours of sitting at the piano, studying my own compositional method, to Ruben’s tireless coding we believe we have achieved something truly unique and inspiring.

Ratings and Reviews

Good app no longer working.

On an iPad Air, not sure if it’s a 2 or not but the latest HarmonyWiz does not work. Specifically, the splash screen opens upon start and then crashes back to the iOS 11.2 interface.

The program was an entertaining augmentation in scoring and was fun to use. Not quite a five star app but useful and fun to work with.

Hopefully it will be troubleshot and fixed.

Nice Wiz'

As an untrained person with extremely limited music reading skills; but, a lover of music and putting around with synthesizers and iPad instruments, I would say that I really like what this app is capable of even though it is a struggle to "feel" the relationship between the notes painted on the screen and the notes actually resulting from them. Here's what I feel is missing from the app:

(1) positive feedback that as you draw, you also hear the notes being selected as you draw them.
(2) four bars is simply way too limiting ... I can sneeze longer.
(3) I repeatedly tried; but, on my iPad Gen 4 which is up to date with iOS updates, does not scroll to the right as you draw so you are forced to "zoom out" to see all four bars in order to get continuity across the screen.

I take this as only round 1.1 in the app's life cycle though and look forward to its evolution. Did mine crash at any point? Not yet.

Outstanding!

As a music major that understands theory, the options to add notes and change chords is a great feature. The paint option is also quite creative.

For people saying that it doesn't make them an instant masterpiece, you should've known better. The way I use this app is to get ideas and edit them in Finale. It's like a rough draft and revised draft before you get to the final draft. It simply works as a foundation for any small composition I decide to make for my college music friends.

Anyway, the updated version works better with notes and non-chord tones outside of the key. It'd be cool to have more time signatures and an option to only make a harmony for certain parts of the song at a time, rather than having to arrange the entire song again.

Thank you Jordan Rudess and the awesome people of Wisdom Music for such an amazing app!
