Keynality Jr is a marriage of music theory and an instrument designed for composers, performers and producers to assist with making music with unfamiliar or unusual keys. It provides a musical palette for creating chord progressions, working out harmonies or melodies using the inbuilt synth and sampler.
The Junior edition is an introduction to Keynality with reduced keys, chords and feature set.
It has support for 43 keys based on 3 heptatonic (7 note) scales. These are Ionian (Major), Aeolian (Minor), Melodic Minor (Asc). It can then map a selection of Major, Minor, Dominant, Diminished, Augmented, Suspended chords into a matrix for playing on an interface that is velocity sensitive.
Other Features are:
• presets can be exported via iCloud.
• a key finder to help match the key to an existing piece of music.
• choice of sound sources: Oscillators, 'Dirty' Synth and Piano/Organ samples
• playing interface is optimised for the different sized iPads (7.9", 9.7", 10.5" & 12.9")
• no ads, no nag screens, no time limits.
Enhanced UI and Audio Responsiveness.
Ratings and Reviews
I had a lot of fun playing with chords and progressions...
I spent a few hours tonight just playing chords and with the chord and keyboard combo lost track of time that went by.
The GUI menu is a little different, but once I learned the triple tap on the settings icon I found that this JR app had a LOT to offer.
I being a guitar player, learned riffs, scales, and chords from books and VHS tapes, I found myself always wishing that I had some of the tools that's out today... I couldn't help thinking that if I had the tools these young musicians had today I would be AMAZING... So it dawned on me to LEARN NEW INSTRUMENTS... So drums seem a natural progression.. so I downloaded apps and videos and learned... then moved next to bass then cello, and this app is a TOOL in the arsenal of Keys (piano)
Great app, thanks developer!
thanks for the awesome review!
