Klimper Music Composition

By Tobias Suellhoefer

This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.


Klimper is a mobile music creation studio with inspiring music theory features that helps you create and develop ideas while making complex songwriting tasks easy.

Find Chords that Work

In the chord palette your can explore chords that are available in your selected scale. While a chord is played, related chords are highlighted so you can easily find chord sequences that progress smoothly. Once you found a nice chord sequence, you can drag and drop chords into your song to build your composition upon it.
If you want to start your song with a melody and find a suitable chord progression, you can do that just as well: select notes and tap the search icon to show chords that match your melody fragment. It's real fun to experiment, seeing how different harmonic contexts affect the perception of the same melodic fragment.

Create Beautiful Melodies and Flowing Chord Progressions

In the piano roll, notes that are in harmony as well as the chords' root notes are highlighted. This makes it super easy to create leads, arpeggios and basslines and to experiment with different chord voicings to let your chord progressions flowing nicely.

Intuitive Editing

A simple, yet feature rich and context-aware user interface helps you build up your ideas into whole songs:
Group sections into song parts and arrange them via drag and drop.
Duplicate, copy and paste, playback selected notes.

File Export

Export and share your creations with audio file export.
Edit your song in other Apps with MIDI-file export.

Customer Reviews

Has potential but needs more sounds

This is very easy to use and thats a good thing. The interface is simple and within minutes you will be creating cool songs. However, I feel its a bit limited and could use more features and effects. I would like to see the addition of electric guitar and distortion effects. Overall just add more cool sounds. Also, maybe add some icons on the drum menu so we can find things more easily. This app is decent and I would recommend it. Could be 5 stars if they add more features.

Really quite good, but!

What would make it five stars for me is, when inputting notes.

(A column along the left that indicates the "actual notes". Also when inputting "different drums tones" a column along the left indicating the different drums available.)

The column for drums I would think is pretty straight forward. The column for notes probably harder.
I'm a singer songwriter, writing most of my stuff on guitar and knowing the various notes contained, your app will select the chords built around those notes.
So very cool, I'm blown away ~ ~ ~ ~ _/)
