Buggy, but good

I downloaded this app yesterday and it is full of bugs that keep you from being able to see everything on the screen. It is very annoying and keeps me from being able to use the app as intended. I have found work arounds, but they require more time and unnecessarily complicate the processes this app is supposed to simplify. Please fix, developers. Once resolved, this app will but a 5 out of 5.

Fabulous composition tool

I wish I would have had this app years ago when I first started studying composition.

Starting with a key and simple diatonic chords, you can explore chord changes through related keys, borrowing chords from other keys, easily auditioning different ideas. You can also put together a chart with your chord changes, then have the app play back your progression with accompaniment (piano/bass/drums) in multiple different styles, with different variations every time. It’s like having a skilled backup band to instantly play through your changes. Once you have something you like, you can easily export to a DAW like Cubasis.

The developer is very responsive. I’ve emailed him several questions about various features and he’s been back to me with informative answers promptly.

I was a bit put off when first installing the app, and it asked me to create a user ID for an online database. I realized that all I needed to do was create a nickname and password - that was it. When I’m creating progressions, I simply mark them as ‘private’ and they are not shared with the community. But if you wanted to share them with other band members or students, you could easily do so.

I’m still exploring and learning, moving through the constellation of related chords and tools. The online database of chord changes is like a dictionary of familiar progression fragments, a very useful and inspirational resource.

Highly recommended.
