Ratings and Reviews

So SO

Tone deaf organ grinder

Lots of scales - yes. Problems too. The staff display shows only one scale up in range and no scale down. When a greater range is selected the display still only shows one scale. It would be nice to see the notes above or below the staff. Also the choice between sharps and flats sometimes seems a little arbitrary. As a bass clef player, I am used to seeing flats rather than sharps. In some of the modes where the root is in flats, the program chooses to use sharps. An optional choice would be nice.

Superb!

BuffaloShrimp

Finally! The perfect scale app! Very thoughtfully and simply organized user interface. Not loaded with special features. But hard to imagine finding a better delivery system. i will use this to workout on both, piano and bass.

Great app! Key Signatures?

Austin Vickrey

This is a very nice app. I see this as a great tool for teaching as well as personal practicing. I think adding a key signature feature to the scales that have conventional ones would make this app fantastic!
