A magically inspirational app!

As a guitarist with limited piano/keyboard stills, this app has been a Godsend when it comes to providing new musical phrases, ideas, and even foundations for future songs.

It's like having a top-rated big city session musician at your beck and call!

When I first purchased it, is was really good, but what blew me away was the way he took input from our talented musical forum to transform it into something truly spectacular.

I fully believe that you can not only purchase this app knowing that it will never become "abandon-ware," but that it will consistently incorporate new systems and ideas to ensure it is best in class.

A source of inspiration.

I really like what the dev is doing with this app! I would suggest more scales and time signatures. Great program at an inexpensive price! Keep evolving!
Ok! Love the new updates (80 bars, yes, more variations due to longer evolution times) and thanks for the renaming update!
Keep going, you got something big here. More scales & time signatures as said earlier.
I have a big(?) suggestion. How about shorter notes like 1/16 and 1/32. It will not sound so algo/mechanical. Set up a “tip jar.”
I will contribute to see this grow even more.
Oh yea, I forgot triplets.
I am glad you set up the tip jar as I just tipped you! You deserve it!

Is anyone else hearing audio?

Piano motifs was working fine for me and then I purchased the midi out upgrade and since then I haven’t been to audition any of the sounds? Is it a bug perhaps?

Developer Response ,

Hi tetrahex. When you enable MIDI Out, you need to select a Destination for Melody and Accompaniment. If you don’t, there will be no audio and a warning message will be displayed indicating that no MIDI destinations have been selected. Please contact us at so we can promptly help you resolve the issue you’re having.
