Description

An indispensable resource for any musician or music teacher.

Over 100 scales notated and played for you, including note names and melodic intervals. Transposition for instruments in Ab, Eb, Bb, F, C, G, D, A, and E. Play along! Create a pdf of the notation and piano key markings for sharing or printing. Listen and watch the notes or piano keys highlight as it plays.

Transpose with a touch, to any root, in treble, alto, tenor or bass clef. See the scale notated correctly, with double sharps and flats as needed. For example, Gb minor has a B double flat, not an A.

A Useful App, But …

This is a very useful app. But it would be a “great” app if it included some scale arpeggios for each scale. Now that would make it the ultimate scale practice tool!

Superb!

Finally! The perfect scale app! Very thoughtfully and simply organized user interface. Not loaded with special features. But hard to imagine finding a better delivery system. i will use this to workout on both, piano and bass.

So SO

Lots of scales - yes. Problems too. The staff display shows only one scale up in range and no scale down. When a greater range is selected the display still only shows one scale. It would be nice to see the notes above or below the staff. Also the choice between sharps and flats sometimes seems a little arbitrary. As a bass clef player, I am used to seeing flats rather than sharps. In some of the modes where the root is in flats, the program chooses to use sharps. An optional choice would be nice.
