Circle of Fifths

It doesn't make me a composer, but it is very insightful. The visuals, along with the musical examples plus few external YouTube videos on the subject, made the subject understandable at least. And, if say I was 21 and not 71, the possibilities would be awesome. All that to say that it is a very good program.

Great app

I struggle a lot with chords this helps me a lot I even shared it with my Facebook music group so others cab try it out. I already had one of my members just purchase your app I'm pretty sure a few more will. It's getting a lot of likes. My question is I've searched YouTube for tutorials for the app.Do you have any? And if not will you make any for music beginners like myself. Detailing step by step each option for the app. I think that would be really helpful. Thanks

Great! But needs improvement

For the most it’s part this is a solid app, But I found that some of the features/tools don’t work correctly or are confusing to use. This app is a great tool overall.

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
By Cee176

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 :)
