tomChord is NOT just a chord library!
It is a tool to help musicians learn to play along with songs as well as train their musical ear!
The unique Detection feature will analyze music through the microphone and tell the user what chords are heard as well as what key.
Using advanced harmonic algorithms tomChord can reach up to 95% accuracy in ideal conditions.
tomChord's easy, intuitive interface gives you note, key, and chord information on one screen.
Results are based on approximately 3 samples per second for the iPhone 3GS.
tomChord will run on the iPhone 3G but there is extra lag and it lacks animation features. The iPhone 3GS is recommended for best results.
New in 2.1:
You can now load songs from your iPod library!
- No waiting time! The detection is still done in real time so you can play the song seconds after loading it!
- Detection from original audio data increases accuracy due to no background noise
- Slow down the song to hear every note
- Navigate to any point in the song for playback
New in 2.0:
A new algorithm allows tomChord to run in real time with a 4x faster refresh rate.
A volume control allows filtering of background noise and increased accuracy!
An improved user interface with new intuitive controls and results as well as HD iPhone 4 retina graphics.
Various crashing problems fixed.
Piano Major and Minor chords added
What's New in Version 2.2.1
Last update caused a bug that caused recorded audio to play back through the speaker/headphones and caused feedback.
This is now fixed
Decent UI way to sensitive
The UI is quite nice. Getting the songs to identify chords is really easy. Chord tracking is awful. It identified a new chord every eighth note or so. Does not filter silence, so will list many chords before a song starts. Highly recommend trying the cheaper apps first. I had much better luck with those. Note that I tried this with songs I knew well, or could easily do by ear, yet the output of this app was not very helpful.
Junk is the word!
This app is a piece of junk designed to steal your money. Try other cheaper one. Why does Apple allows such junky app on their app store. Retain your reputation of quality by removing such app please! I am very angry this doesn't do what it says.
Basically it's a app to take your money! Can't find a chord!!
