What I hoped

Exactly what I needed to compliment Suggester for building harmonies!

However, one glaring issue…..

I like seeing the visual keyboard. A lot. When I select a chord from the map, it appears as expected in the voicing keyboard in the top panel. However, when I am playing a song, the chords do not appear in the voicing keyboard as the song plays. Why not? This a big miss.

Developer Response ,

The new 6.15.1 version with the fix is already waiting for review. Please considering updating your review once you've tried it. Thanks

Features for iPad are not the same as listed

The features in the list are for the desktop version, not the iPad version. You can’t browse “hundreds” of standards, there is maybe a dozen and you cannot import the fake book xml files that contain others, as you can on the desktop version. So, it has interesting features but unless you want to enter a bunch of songs by hand, you are stuck with the songs and progressions that are already in the app. Kinda a drag because the accompaniment play-along ability of the app is great, way way better than iRealB, better sounds and better comping. Hopefully in the future you can import files on the iPad version and load up the xml fake book files provided by the publisher.

update as of 06/22

sooooo many bugs and inconsistencies make this program more frustrating than useful, in v8 slash chords do not work, there is no “pedal point” option when you click on the chord per the docs.

The documentation does not reflect different platforms, it talks about right clicking…on an IPad???

This program has reached Band-in-a-Box level interface crime, it’s probably only useable by the guy who wrote it, or someone that wants to devote a lot of time to figuring out how things work via trail and error. Better off getting the free player app instead for simple playback.

Incredible composition and harmony tool

This is the best app to study Tonal Harmony today and it gets better on every update. I highly recommend this app for anyone looking to compose, analyze or teach harmony. The upper structures and target notes are really useful if you want to learn how to improvise and play over chord changes. I would certainly recommend watching the videos to get a better idea of all the things you can do with this app.

This app gets better and better. Saving performance settings is a great new feature.
