One of the best song writing/producing apps
I use Chordbot for a while now and it’s awfully useful for setting up an entire song quickly. Once the basic arrangement is complete , I just export the midi to a DAW and build on the arrangement in the DAW. I often end up using the piano parts in my produced songs. I would love to see an audio recording feature so I can lay down vocals when inspiration hits or when I don’t have access to my computer. I hope the developer will take time to update this great app with features like intros and fills and much more styles and patterns. I’d gladly pay extra for the update.
One thing I noticed is that the app seems to crash more often on the iPad than the iPhone. But those are rare occurrences though.
Overall, an incredible tool!
Like lego for song structures
It is deceptively simple, but like lego, you can build so much. Contrary to other apps, this one focuses on getting a big picture, from chord progression to overall mood. Like lego, you are limited by the lego pieces, but they are so you can build anything with it. The nice part is it’s very to hear how the pieces work, even if one doesn’t understand everything, they kind of connect anyway. This is why it’s great for sketching, or even stumbling upon ideas.
I imagine someone with a lot of familiarity with music theory can be a lot more intentfull, where as someone with no idea whatsoever can build things by trial and error, just like you’d build a car in lego, will be easier than handled steel and rubber.
Great Tool, but can be Buggy!
I bought this app last week. I like it a lot. Lots of chords to experiment with, and that's great, but I have one problem. When adding another chord to the song structure, it changes other chords along with it! That's a bummer. This happens almost every time. I have had to save after every chord addition. Why is it doing this? Please fix it and five stars for sure. This also has some nice sounds without having to go Midi and that's a plus too! Oh and a way to quickly undo would also be a plus. Thanks for your quick attention. Nebben
