Awesome and not so awesome...

This app offers one a remarkable visualization of cadence. And It’s an excellent way to rapidly analyze jazz standards. And though a supremely valuable tool for music education, I find it frustrating to use for other purposes. I’d like to recommend this app for both, play-along practice and composition, but shortcomings of the UI make these frustrating experiences. The transport, tempo, key change, bar-repeat controls are dinky and often buried in menu folders making play-along unnecessarily difficult to manage. The map appears to be a wonderful tool for composition. But it seems to be missing chord audition and undo/redo functionality (Auto-save would be very useful too.). One really needs a piano or guitar and pen and paper to audition chords and record chord changes in order to avoid unraveling composition with a few poorly executed choices via UI. I open the app on two devices at once. I use MTH as a sketch pad on my iPad and I record my final decisions on MTH on my iPhone when I don’t have access to a piano keyboard. Am I missing some useful information here? This is no good. So, five stars for active visualization (Bravo). But sorry to say, I’m still leaning on other apps for play-along and composition. MTH is so very close to ideal. Keep it coming, please.

Fabulous composition tool

I wish I would have had this app years ago when I first started studying composition.

Starting with a key and simple diatonic chords, you can explore chord changes through related keys, borrowing chords from other keys, easily auditioning different ideas. You can also put together a chart with your chord changes, then have the app play back your progression with accompaniment (piano/bass/drums) in multiple different styles, with different variations every time. It’s like having a skilled backup band to instantly play through your changes. Once you have something you like, you can easily export to a DAW like Cubasis.

The developer is very responsive. I’ve emailed him several questions about various features and he’s been back to me with informative answers promptly.

I was a bit put off when first installing the app, and it asked me to create a user ID for an online database. I realized that all I needed to do was create a nickname and password - that was it. When I’m creating progressions, I simply mark them as ‘private’ and they are not shared with the community. But if you wanted to share them with other band members or students, you could easily do so.

I’m still exploring and learning, moving through the constellation of related chords and tools. The online database of chord changes is like a dictionary of familiar progression fragments, a very useful and inspirational resource.

Highly recommended.

Finally ready for prime time

I’ve had this app for quite a while but hadn’t used it ... earlier versions seemed to me to be brilliant and intriguing but also frustrating. The core functionality was obscured by bad UX/UI. I stuck with iRealPro which is more modest in its aspirations and simpler to use. I don’t want to interrupt my practice time to monkey with an app. The harmony map is a cool idea but I don’t find much use for it.

Finally, MTH has matured to the point it’s really usable, especially if you buy the 1000 jazz tunes in xml format and import them.

The developers are responsive to comments. I’m sure further refinements are continuing.

I’d recommend this for any serious student of music, either classical or jazz-based, or any player who wants to deepen their understanding of tonal harmony.

Exporting backing tracks as MIDI creates amazing options. You can make a backing track in MTH and export it to your DAW to orchestrate it, or export it to MuseScore and see/edit it as a score, to use the backing track as a basis for a band arrangement!

A forum to share user-created backing tracks would be a killer addition.

Maybe the developer could be persuaded to create a companion app: mapping atonal harmony pro!
