Using a revolutionary approach to crafting a musical instrument on a portable device, only made possible by the technologies put together by Apple, the Chordica is set to change the way the world plays accompaniment music.
With it, you will:
•Learn to play music in just a few hours despite having no musical background
•Be able to play the accompaniment for thousands of popular songs
•Have a handy instrument anywhere you go
•Increase the chances of writing the next big music hit while on the move :)
Folks are calling the Chordica genuinely innovative, an example of simple but creative programming, a nice little app and a great start. One reviewer even said, “I plan on doing a great deal with it”.

Don’t say, “One day I’ll be a musician”, say “I’ll be a musician IN ONE DAY!”
What's New in Version 1.2
* NeuMET1K : A new beats rack that allows you to play the metronome with drums and percussion sounds
* iNSTRUMENTS : A rack that allows you to select different sounds for the Bass and Harmony sections
Suggeastions to make Chordica better (imho)
I think Chordica is a pretty cool iphone app with real potential.
I wish I could find a way to contact the author to offer a few suggestions that I and I think others would appreciate.
1) Include the ability to add other instruments (maybe for 99¢ each)
2) I really would like to see a pad or two for both, but especially the right hand —or finger, that had true sustain as long as you held it down.
The setting 'Orch Strgs' sustains for just half a second then cuts off abruptly.
Continual held sustain would have a richer, much less chopped sound and feel.
3) Bass and synth bass sounds for the left hand — currently all the sounds are keyboard based.
4) As others have requested the ability to save and recall song/arrangement presets. This would make Chordica a more credible performance app.
5) Right hand or dual hand arpeggiation options locked to the tempo, then ANYBODY would sound good.
6) The option to display the musical buttons by the current number system OR by the actual musical note system.
I hope to see some of my requests in future releases.
Where's the IV chord?
Except for having the most confusing interface for the most simple (but great) concept (and no documentation to explain it) this app is very nice. And if you want to play a song that includes the IV chord (for example, F major in the key of C) you're out of luck. I'd personally rate the subdominant as certainly in the top 3 most important chords in a key. Why is it left out of the chord interface?
Very nifty! Very convenient! A musician's must have!
Keeps getting better with the updates. A way to save progressions would be an awesome feature to add on the next update. Thanks so much for this awesome app! :-)
