Perfect App for Songwriters and musicians

Incredibly useful and well designed both functionally and aesthetically. The best song writing tool for musicians I have come across so far

Great App

For someone who doesn’t know how to play major and minor chords or place them in orders that will sound good together such as myself 😂😂😂😂 I love this app, it taking my production to another level

Great..but not yet perfect!

Love this app! It’s super helpful for beginners. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because it does not have a zoom feature. I have bad eyes and it can be very hard to see the scales when I’m any distance away from the screen. If they add this feature I will update my review to 5 stars :)

Great app for creating songs! Worth the 3 dollars

I learned about the circle of fifths recently, but I didn’t realize how useful of a tool it is to create songs! At first, I tried to learn about it and experiment with it on my own, but it takes a good bit of music theory to understand and to apply the concepts. I looked for something similar to this app on line, but this app is pretty much perfect for what I was looking for. This app allows you to choose chords in real time, switch them, and structure complete songs with labels and set the number of playback loops for each part. On top of that, you can choose 4 instruments. When you choose a new chord, it will tell you if the chord is in key. There are multiple scales to choose from, and you can easily switch the key which changes all of your chords but keeps the progressions the same. You can save and export all of them and you can load examples of real songs within the app. Honestly, there are many features to list, ranging from functionality to design elements like colors. This app is very robust and clean. Nothing is gimmicky or extra, and I feel that it is a very powerful song writing tool. Honestly, I feel that the developer deserves every bit of revenue generated by this app. There are no ads or annoying in-app purchases that I can see. If you write songs, want to try writing them, or have ever been stuck wondering what kind of chord progression to create to match the verse, please give this app a try. It is beautiful. Note for the developer: Thank you for creating this app. It is pretty much perfect and I hope that it stays exactly like this. Great work!

Good idea and pretty interface but...

This looks like a good idea and definitely the kind of tool I need, but I am currently having 2 issues with the app as I use it through a Bluetooth amp to jam on the tracks. - the playback volume cannot be changed while using the app. I have to switch to another app (My MP3 player) to increase or decrease the volume and go back to that guy. - I can’t switch to another app while playing back the chords. It causes the playback to immediately stop.

Great app, missing some important features, though

The app offers a variety of features that are super useful for composing a tune, however there are some features that are either hard to find or navigate through, the biggest one for me being that you can’t change the length of chords, only the general time signature. This really limits your options when you’re getting creative.
