The notes sound continuously and it´s a perfect way to practice intervals, chords and scales.
You also have the possibility to play the notes randomly in an adjustable period of time.

The metronome allows you to practice in tempos from 30bpm up to 300bpm. It can be set to different time signatures like 2/4, 3/4, 4/4, 5/4, 7/4, 9/4, 11/4, 13/4. You can also select or deselect the downbeats and offbeats separately.
You can listen and play to all chords in all twelve keys, see which notes are the chord notes and scale notes and read information about the chord and the corresponding scale.
In addition to that, all chords can also be played randomly. You can choose to just randomly change the root or the root and the chord type.
The app lets you filter the chords, which allows you to only randomly play the chords of for example the modes of melodic minor or harmonic minor.

•Fingerings for saxophone and reed adjustment for saxophone and clarinet•

There are fingering charts about standard fingerings, false fingerings, altissimo and quarter tones and information about reed adjustment of sides, table, tip, shoulder and heart.
If you don´t play the saxophone, you can hide this part of the app.

•Features•

* Stealth Mode (Ear Training Mode). You can use stealth mode in drones, chords and progressions. This will hide the currently played chords and display them afterwards.
* A practice timer that informs you when your set practice time has expired.
* Landscape mode.
* Light- and dark appearance (Night Shift).
* You can set if you play a C, Bb, oder Eb Instrument.
* Are you an advanced player? The expert mode offers you additional information which could be confusing to unexperienced musicians. If you have no idea what C▵7#5 means or if you have never heard of quarter tones you probably should choose the standard mode.
* All sounds can be played from 432Hz to 444Hz.

Well designed and incredibly useful!!!

I’ve been looking for this exact app ever since I was in school for music. This would have been so helpful to me then and I’m getting a as lot of use from it now. Perfect for practicing scales over drones, scales over chords, building chords, experimenting with different tuning standards, and so much more. The developer Steffen has been super responsive to my suggestions, even going so far as to make my suggested changes and have me beta test them!! A great app from a great developer, no regrets!!!!! :)

Incredible

Highly recommended - diverse features, great usability, and the sound samples are high quality. Only thing I would add is a different pitch for the first downbeat of the metronome, but not essential.

Good app for practicing

Overall very cool app—a couple suggestions that would make it better: please add the ability to have the drones cycle down the scale, not just up; also the ability for the drone scale to be made up of the notes selected. Right now, selecting notes only affects random mode, not a fixed cycle/progression

Developer Response ,

Hi leog2, thank you for your suggestions. They are very welcome. Would you be so kind to contact me by mail (drones - settings) and explain your suggestions a little bit more detailed? I'm not sure if I fully understand what you are looking for. Best, Steffen
