Retrospectre - Great App!
I downloaded TONALY on a Friday, prior to traveling because I needed an app that would provide me with the circle of fifths for composition, and I was not disappointed. In fact, I was pleasantly surprised by how full this app is with features that help with composition and songwriting, in addition to the view of the circle of fifths. What’s more, you can change the length of chords a chords measures, and save your work to come back later to it. You can very quickly transpose your compositions to hear what they sound like in other keys.
If you’re a musician without a background in music education, and even if you are, I would recommend this app be on your device! I’ve also used it to figure out chords to songs quickly, as I’m still learning to do that by ear. This is a very useful on-the-go composition tool, and easy to use for those who are not yet comfortable with theory or their instrument, yet wish to express themselves.
wckreation - Fun and super helpful for writing songs!
Great little app, very helpful for composing and actually hearing chord progressions back for those who don't have relative and perfect pitch. The only thing is that I would love for more customizations of the chords, namely inversions (even in combination with four note chords) and different rhythms that aren't 4/4. Right now, the root of the chord is always on the bottom. Inversions add a different color to the chord and are very widely used in songs and compositions. Some chords in the context of a certain progression just aren't the same sound without inversions. As for rhythms, it would be helpful for more control over how many bars a progression is and how many beats are in a bar. Right now, it's always 4 beats to a bar. Either 4 or 8 bars. I don't think adding different time signatures would be incredibly difficult nor adding custom length of bars any amount between (2-8). Also, adding chord changes within a bar would be awesome. That would add more complexity, sure, but the app for have so much value for making fully realized chord progressions for a song or composition. Other than those things, a solid app with lots of potential for improvement. I'm sure the inversions and rhythms features can be included in a future update.
Freshprinceofbethel - Ideas for new updates
App is pretty good and fun to use. I recommend getting it to anyone who wants a better understanding of progressions. I would hope to see in the future options for saving chord progressions, making chord progressions that are longer than 8 bars, and possibly different instrument sounds. I think these are all relatively easy additions. I would also recommend an option to use chords from the parallel minor or modal interchange. This would be a tremendously better app if it had that. It would be worth way more money. I would even pay in app purchase for it if it worked well. I'd rather see it free but people need money. This app is good and is updated pretty regularly. I'd give it five stars if they manage to bring my suggestions to life. I'm hopeful because these don't seem like they would be incredibly hard to add to the already good UI. I would also like to point out a glitch where if you exit to home screen out of the app while having a chord progression being played it can make a horrible spazz noise. Overall really good app that's actually worth the price I'd buy it again.
Krishna Peri - A bang for the buck
I almost never write reviews for apps but this one felt like it deserves a praise. The UI is very appealing with neat colors and the makers of this app clearly did their research on user base because it caters to both beginners and professionals. I’ve been a musician for about six years now and a UX designer for three, and this is the first time I’m seeing two of my favorite things blend into one awesome entity.
At first even I thought if it’ll be worth spending the money for and now I’ve realized the vast possibilities this app has to offer. Sometimes I get writers block when trying to come up with a piece and cannot really place the next chord in the sequence and also I’ve had hard time getting my head around different modes. This app surprisingly has it all and I’d highly recommend any musician to check it out.
Goodnte - Keeps Getting Better
I love Tonally. I does all it claims to do as a basic songwriting tool. Think of it as a songwriting sketch pad. Pro features would include the ability to place a different chord on every downbeat (this would allow you to do chord walk ups or walk downs). Currently the app only allows you to subdivide the bar in half thereby placing chords on the 1 and 3. You can extend or lengthen the amount of time a chord plays however you are currently prevented from further subdividing or muting a potion of a chord after making the first subdivision. Furthermore I wholeheartedly agree with my fellow reviewers who have asked for the ability to make chord inversions. Inversions really affect the feel of a song and are a must. I envision Tonally one day being a stand-alone app giving songwriters the ability to fully write and arrange a song and then export a fully fuctional lead sheet. When that day comes expect my rating to jump to a five.
lonzdaddy - worth every penny
i’m self taught on the keys for the past 2 years and just started taking lessons where i had to get my fingerings together with Scales. this App has been so helpful in learning how to transpose in all keys, and knowing my 1-7 in each key. the extra $2.99 for the scales is also a huge plus for those who are looking to diversify their sound and learn all types of scales. i also love the song writing mode that shows you what a typical chorus will start on in terms of key (cmaj verse, to a min bridge with a 6234 progression for instance). i recommend this to anyone who wants to better their playing. couple this app with lessons and you can really become deadly on the keys!!!
I wanna watch madea - Ehhh ....
Normally, I would give this app five stars. However, when I tried to export it as a midi file and add it to my GarageBand it starts making a noise that wasn’t happening on the app originally. I am not sure if that’s a branded sound effect for using the app or maybe somethings wrong with the app. I feel that with the limited amount of instruments that you provide I should be able to export it put it onto GarageBand and manipulated in which ever way I would like. Which would aid in making music a bit more. This would be really grateful for beginners (speaking for myself) but now I have to sit here and slightly struggle with making chords on the iPad. Maybe I’m doing something wrong please let me know what I can do to change the alien noise that I hear or let me know if it’s not going to stop. Or at least if this is a branded sound affect please let me pay for it to disappear, SOMETHING, just make it go away.
Deadjest - Possible Updates
This app is great for many different reason, but thought maybe it would be cool if you could change the chords up per measure and have triplet beats. This app is fun to tap the chords as the click track plays at different grooves almost like a sampler, it gives it that chopped sound that has and will always be so popular hip hop crowds. Would be cool to be able to record them as you tap them. I do understand that’s a great reason for the midi export but just a suggestion. Also, maybe I’m not smart enough to find it but is there a way to do inversions? Thanks keep making music fun.
Amirtech2005 - if one more feature is added...
I really like this app. I don’t wanna waste the review to talk about what it can do because Chris’s tutorial videos are pretty informative on that note. But I like the developers to add (or I’d better say to complete) the chord section;
When you click on the Chord Symbols under the left menu, it shows lots of great info. I first clicked on the square which contains the chord name thinking it plays the chord but I was wrong.
Also, it shows the chord only in the first position on the fretboard.
Personally I don’t mind to pay more for the app if these super useful educational improvements are added. So, I hope they add the following features:
1- when you click on the chord name, I like to hear how it sounds as well,
2- I’d also be able to change the chord position on the fretboard to see other inversions or chord options, “interactively”.
PS: this can be added as a new option, something titled as Chord, in the menu with Songwriting, Scales, and Modes.
ivicachem - Fantastic!
The new update brought many nice features including the one crucial for me - the ability to use chords which are not in the current key (mode). I have a suggestion for a future version. Say that I want to add E and E7 to the Am key. And maybe A7, for transitioning to Dm. Those additional chords could be permanently added to the current circle by, for example, stacking them behind the diatonic chords with the same root. A long-press gesture (or something else) could be used for revealing all the non-diatonic chords at the presses root so that we can use, edit or remove them.
Allstar1609 - It’s really good, but...
This app is great, it is a really good tool for musicians. Although I think it could use some improvements: 1.) The ability to use different chord voicings would be great and is definitely something that would be helpful. Maybe use the piano to change the voicing. 2.) the way you change chords on your chord progression was kind of unintuitive to me especially when I’m trying to listen to a chord in my progression and then listen to other chords to use or follow up with and then I accidentally replace the chord in the progression. I’m not sure how to you would go about doing this because I know app design is difficult.
TrinityWave - Just wow.
This app is beyond astonishing and the ease of use for a beginner to a virtuoso is just incredible. I was skeptical going into the purchase due to the lack of attention to detail and disarray of previous apps but this is the PLATINUM standard in the what should be used for learning theory on a whim and combined with creativity is debate fully an absolute NEED in your arsenal when playing guitar/ writing or learning music in general. I can say with confidence that this is the pinnacle of an interactive and informative experience that can further your abilities as a musician with the proper work ethic. GET IT, you can’t regret it!
Erohs1 - A priceless tool for the modern day songwriter
I study music and perform for a living as well as write my own music on the side. This is a wonderful tool that allows a visual learner like myself to see a chord progression and hear it at the same time. Instead of plinking chords for a half hour trying to find a groove, I can mess around with this for a bit until I find something I like and then bring it over to the piano. This app saved a ton of time for me and I am so glad I purchased it. This is an essential tool for me these days. I would highly recommend!
Siriusvibes - Best Circle of Fifths App so far
This app is really a nicely done music tool with a great UX. There are a few comments critical of aspects that it lacks to which I would comment give it a chance. The developer appears to be very responsive to suggestions and this is a first cut. We need great tools like this so let’s give them support so they can work on it to continue making improvements. I see a lot of potential for this tool and hope everyone can see this as well and support it. Spread the word.
Great job! Looking forward to future versions. Thank you.
Damon Pauk - Good job!
Incredible app everything I have always looked for I understand chords I understand scales but I can get into the melodies I want this app allowed me to take my idea and put it forward into my music with little hassle quick easy and fun. I would add the if you guys could turn this into a plug-in for DAWs like Ableton or fl studio so then we can use directly in the program. Don’t get me wrong though that midi feature is flawless. I just want to use it in my DAW directly that would be cool. Thanks for this app makes a huge difference in my life.
Guzzy75728 - like a musician’s sketchbook in your pocket
great app! recommend it to anyone, particularly those going through a bit of writer’s block who don’t really have all their music theory put together (like me, lol)
only issues i have are spoiled ones. i wish there were ways to have chords play when i want them to. for example, if i’m writing in 4/4, i may want: chord I, chord II/III, chord IV, chord V
here i would have my third chord progression come in on the second chord’s third and fourth beat, and there’s no way (that i know of) to do that... if it’s 4/4 then i only can use 4 chords. no more, no less. speaking of less, what if i want my third chord to hold out in place of a fourth chord? if i want to replicate that, i have to just repeat the chord in the fourth spot and it’s just not the same
i feel like if there was a way to implement these improvements, it would make this app so much more dynamic and a true songwriters companion.
no hate tho, i really like this app and would still recommend it!
Kremserm - Oh wow!
A major hats off to whoever made this app! I have been really trying to learn music theory so I can learn to play the guitar. What are the scales, what notes go well together, major, minor scales, etc... I downloaded this app not having major expectations. Then bamm! This is a very well developed app, it has all of that knowledge. You can go look at the notes in a key on keyboard, or switch to guitar (which I did). I thought, wow... but surely you don’t have it for a left handed and again... I was pleasantly surprised: they do! A big big big thanks. Miku
That Guy124 - This app got WAAAAAAAY better
I downloaded this app a while back and used it maybe 3 times and haven’t used it since. I’m supposed to be writing a paper right now so naturally I’m going through every single app on my phone to procrastinate. I’m not sure when these guys updated this app but MAN I’m actually excited to use it for what it’s for. The navigation is improved and the quick tips are crazy helpful (so far). Not sure how much I spent on this but it couldn’t have been anything crazy. If you’re looking for an app that will give you a bit of inspiration chord-wise, this app is great.
MM10K - Thank you!
As someone who has struggled with learning this type of thing for my entire life because of ADHD and some other similar issues, this has been a tremendous gift! I am very grateful to it’s developer to helping me finally be able to understand music theory a little more. I love music more than anything and have played in bands most of my life. This app is teaching me the things I have always yearned to be able to grasp and implement into my musical vocabulary. I can’t thank you enough for this app!
WhySoSerious. - Almost Prefect
The application works as advertised and well at that. The latest update makes it easier to compose an entire song for sure. The only reason I’m not giving this a 5 star rating is because we cannot change the duration of a chord in the timeline. If I want a chord to play for only 2 beats, I can’t do that. This seems like something that can be achieved by allowing the user to change the duration while assigning the chord’s value. Maybe a little handle or something. This alone would earn my 5thstar.
A nice to have would be midi out feature.
Dickjustdick - Very useful.
I’m loving this app. I’m not using it to compose music yet. I use it to convert music I want to play on guitar and piano to chord sheets and tabs. Doing this with the circle of fifths accessible makes this fast and relatively easy, and to be able to access related chords that are outside the key is a game changer. The flexibility in song construction (verse, chorus bridge, intro, outro, and much more) is important.
The feature I need is to allow more chords to the bar. I can work around it by changing tempo but there are limits. Please consider this.
josiahshow - Love this app + feature request
This is my go-to app to find chord progressions and help with scales. Being able to AirDrop the chords straight from my phone into my DAW is amazing (and it works great with Logic).
The only feature I would like is in the scales. I would like it to highlight all the note in the scale on the “keyboard”, without pressing the notes for it to play one by one. I can’t read sheet music well, so seeing all the notes written out that way doesn’t help me. Other than I love this app, keep up the great work!
Grimmonics - Overcharged for scale pack
Love the app so far - very quick and intuitive to use. Already have a couple of compositions saved and can jam out to the progression with my instruments to work on parts, etc. it would be cool to have more than one chord per measure, been using double time tempo to get around that. I purchased the additional scales pack and was overcharged. It said it was going to charge me $1.99, but I was actually charged $8.42. So buyer beware, you will be charged more than what is listed.
Cesco Runi - Limited
Given the name I really thought this app would have more features and customizations, the length of the progression is only 4 or 8 bar and there’s no customization within the bar also I would have hope I could write a progression on c Ionian for example and then in the same progression being able to borrow chords from a different c mode, Dorian for example , but instead when I switch to Dorian mode the progression automatically switch to D Dorian , changes the relationship between the chords, understandable, but it would be useful to have the option to actually be able to mix chords from different modes of the same key.
johnnyboi679361819101 - Decent but why are there in-app purchases
This app is $5.99 up front and has a decent chunk of useful practice and writing material but requires $2.99 purchases to unlock more things. For example in the Scales practice mode (the main reason I purchased the app) you get 7 scales to work on but need to pay an additional $2.99 for the other 80 scales , most of which are the ones I intended to use when I got the app🤦🏼♂️. I get that some in-app purchases are necessary and I would totally understand if it was a free app but it is already a higher cost in the App Store than most apps so I don’t think you get your money’s worth on it.
Otis Frampton - Amazing app! Great composition tool!
This is the best song composition tool that I’ve found on the iPad so far. Intuitive and simple, it allows for even those without a knowledge of music theory to create songs that shine. If I had one suggestion for a future feature, it would to add the ability to move song sections around on the edit screen. Hopefully that feature is coming! Thanks so much for the great app and keep up the terrific work!
yobhsif - Major or 7th chords all or nothing?
I try not to review things before I’ve spent a good amount of time with them, but maybe the developer can help me out - is there no way to set progression mode to a minor key?? It seems like you can only switch from EVERYTHING major key to EVERYTHING 7th chords. Maybe there’s a good music theory-oriented reason for this (I bought this ap relatively ignorant of theory after all), but these seem like really basic things - especially the major/minor key signature aspect. All that said, I’m already enjoying and seeing the potential in the ap as is and fully intend to continue using it.
whtthefilippeli - If I could be an ambassador I would
I love this app so much I’ve literally plugged it to all my students and friends. Super fun to work with and makes the composition process approachable and fun. I recommend this app for anyone just starting out in music, people looking to brush up their chops, or musicians who are looking for teaching tools for their students ✨ I would give it a 5 if when exporting the PDFs it gave an option to have the chords notated with notes on the staff. I feel like that would bring the app to the next level.
Coreytree - Astounding little app
A fabulous learning tool. This is so wonder for me as I am learning more theory as a way to increase inspiration and capabilities in songwriting. It does so much that it took me a couple of tries to scratch the surface - and that’s all I feel I’ve done - of this swell little tool for viewing and learning theory in such a unique way. Also want to mention that I love the popular songs it will play through so you can see much of how they are constructed.
Gadvad - Don’t usually write reviews
But I love this app. Since the quarantine I don’t have access to my piano so this makes for a great way to compose. One note of feedback is it would be great if you could let the instruments do some sort of riffs like the guitar can do in GarageBand when you play chords so there is a little more of a creativity dimension when composing. And maybe even add a drummer as a metronome option. Other than that great job.
Beezin Steezin - Perfect but
First off I love this app, very helpful and gives good insight if you are beginning your music theory/writing journey how ever there are some flaws. The app does not display chord for many scales melodic/alt etc. And it is kind of limited in the colors of music it helps you to use don’t be expecting an advanced app for jazz theory (it would be awesome if it was) but over all it is great and hope to see some updates that help with more harmony and jazz theory, I’m guessing jazz students are the majority of the people who downloaded this app. 🤩
TaylorPlayer - Truly great app
I have owned the app for a while now but hadn’t really taken advantage of all it has to offer until recently. There is so much you can do here and there is an excellent guidebook to help learn to do it. I am using the app as a scale practice tool, to try out new chord progressions and to better understand the circle of fifths.
Really well done with great functions and very well designed graphics. Love it.
Airs. Sether - App breaking bug
Been loving this app. However after renaming a song I had been working on, the app hard locked where it just turned to a dark grey screen. Cool, apps crash. Close app and reopen it. Shows TONALY logo then goes back to grey screen. Cool, guess I’ll delete it and redownload, it has cloud save so I won’t lose anything.
Amazing that works. However the app will soft lock to the grey screen whenever I try to do anything. I can look at my songs that I’ve already worked on but add a line? Lock to grey screen. So app is unfortunately unusable for me at this current state. Pretty sad.
anonymousdxjgfjkehnxjkidre - Awesome but...
I’ve been with you guys since the beginning of your UJAM website days, even back then I was blown away by what you had accomplished! My hats off to you guys, first the site, then the virtual instruments (which are off the hook!!), and now this! Sheer brilliance!! You took the best of the song writing portion of UJAM and put it in an app, wonderful!!!
Only a couple of things...
1st: (at least on my iPad anyway) when I exported the midi via email, I couldn’t write anything in either the subject line, or the body.
2nd: The bass note can’t be changed in a chord, only the root is available. It would be perfect if a multiple bass note function was offered.
Other than those two things, well done!! Fantastic job!!!
TheSell-onator - *Help*
It needs Single notes function to be playable with or without midi keyboard and single note recording needs arpeggios need a dlc or different app that does drum loops but for now single notes to be recorded would be a big help that way we can finish our songs using your app please im begging you i bought all items i need this app but i need those single notes too.
Bubble something! - This app is really useful
I honestly think I’ve written the best chord progression I’ve ever made with the help of this app. I love that you can write is more experimental scales, like harmonic minor.
There are a few things that I would love to see in this app that would change my review to 5-Star:
-Change how many chords are in a chord progression. I really want to work with 32 chords. You can only do 4 and 8 now.
-Add a seventh on to a single chord without having to make all of them sevenths. You can currently only do this with some of the scales, I believe.
-Save chord progression to the app.
-Change which octave a chord is being played in.
I really want to be able to use this app on the go whenever I’m bored and not sitting beside a piano or my PC. I think these things would really help the app become more useful.
.,?!'-/:;()₩&@" - Great app! Except one big missing part!
I love how the app is helping us to find good matching chords to help us start making songs, but I think this app is missing one big part of song writing! The writing part!
I really hope this app could let us take notes for lyrics and ideas while we play the chords in the app.
Except that, this app is very handy and motivative thanks!
Breeeegdog - This app is amazing
Yes it has in app purchases but i dont care ill pay money for things that give lots of value. This app deserves it. Im sick of modes and other rare scales being under appreciated and underused. Theres so many more possibilities with music than just the C major scale. Come on, modes are where its at i cant wait to dive into the exotic scales section. Thank you for making this app.
Ailikou - Good idea and pretty interface but...
This looks like a good idea and definitely the kind of tool I need, but I am currently having 2 issues with the app as I use it through a Bluetooth amp to jam on the tracks.
- the playback volume cannot be changed while using the app. I have to switch to another app (My MP3 player) to increase or decrease the volume and go back to that guy.
- I can’t switch to another app while playing back the chords. It causes the playback to immediately stop.
claudiorivera - Great songwriting tool, with one minor flaw
This app has been incredibly useful for my songwriting, and I can’t recommend it enough.
One feature I would pay money for would be iCloud sync. I would love to be able to start a song on one device and finish on another. Cloud sync would also keep a copy of your songs safely stored, in the event that you lose your phone.
Thank you for this amazing app!
austinhafer - This literally changed the way I write, play, and hear music!
The circle of fifths always escaped me, or the paper charts I drew were slow and cumbersome. I could figure it out with a piano, but it took time.
This lets you variate chords, build sections, and transpose really easily. I recommend it to everyone who makes music or wants to understand it better.
El Mikee - Please fix this
The look is really good, the functionality is superb, but FIX the freaking sound issue already!!! EVERYTIME I try to use this app there’s crackling noise, sometimes the distortion turns this app not useful at all. I tried the fix button in the troubleshooting section and 5 seconds later, the noise and distortion came back. PLEASE, PRETTY PLEASE, FIX THIS! I so want to like this app!
Kombat Wombat 786 - Excellent with new update
I have been waiting eagerly for the developer to add the feature whereby one can add a chord not within the current key. Now that this feature has been added I feel like the app is now in a way complete, at least for me. This is a capability that is an integral option for the more serious composer. Great work laddie.
Bassbawls - Fantastic tool that takes away the pen and paper
The circle of fifths is a fantastic tool period. I memorized it and drew it out for years but now I don’t have to do that if I ever need to look at it and utilize it. Not only that but this app will play scales and progressions giving instant feedback for ideas. I love it and use it all the time. Wish I had it sooner.
Mkelly765 - Thanx guys/gals for a great app
I truly appreciate the concept and presentation you folks put together in this app. I find it to be very intuitive and useful for learning and for sparking my creativity in regards to chords /voicings and progressions.
I would gladly pay along the way for new features/functionality as you work it in.
A quick suggestion:
The popular song section is a great idea.
Maybe add a section for common song forms.
Strophic, Verse/Bridge, Verse/Chorus, Verse/Chorus/Bridge, 12 bar blues etc....
With a example of a song using the corresponding form.
Just my two cents.
If there is anything I could do to help, let me know.
Nicholas Gnayme - Easy and Diverse
I never write reviews, but I'm happy enough with the product, that a positive review is easily justified.
I remember paying for something with this product. Either the app itself or an upgrade to more functions: regardless, it was nominal, and I'm always using it, as a reference or to experiment with, while writing.
szelenak - Really cool app, needs more features for writing jazz
Super cool app, really easy to use, lots of flexibility. Maybe I’m missing something but this app doesn’t seem to support altered dominant chords. The song I’m working on right now uses a F7b13 and the closest chord I can find is F13.
I’ll still give this app 5 stars because it’s fantastic!
bee__thousand - Great app, missing some important features, though
The app offers a variety of features that are super useful for composing a tune, however there are some features that are either hard to find or navigate through, the biggest one for me being that you can’t change the length of chords, only the general time signature. This really limits your options when you’re getting creative.
J.artistry - Very cool app
Very good for song writers! Please add more flexibility w the grid.. (I.e. being able to put chords in any part of a bar) This app can be a go to song idea machine for musicians before We record them.. also say I have a chord progression playing, u guys should make it so that when The user switches to scales the user can write a melody also.
Mrkedgeness12488358(.;!&::$@?: - Mostly good
For the most part I think this app is fun and helpful, but I’m a little confused sometimes when I’m working with modes and the 5 chord ends up being lower than the 1? Additionally I paid for the add on to get more scales and it doesn’t actually let you study modes in different scales such as harmonic minor. Over all still very good, definitely some room for improvement though in my opinion.

Theloserkidyo - Awesome app
Brilliant set up and so easy to use. I’m a long time novice when it comes to actual musical information and am self taught so this is the perfect app to help me dive into a deeper understanding of building songs and finding more intricate ways to bring a melody to life. Thank you for the work you do, it’s inspiring the work I do
Kruff Kurtis - It’s fantastic!
I have searched and searched for something as good as this. The price is fair and the app is really user friendly. This has made music production so much easier and the export to Midi functionality is super great! All rounded great app for musicians and producers!
Steve7326 - Excellent Music Tool but has some slight issues
The app is well thought out and useful but I can hear random static noises when playing chords and there is a bit of lag. Overall it’s not too big of an issue and the app does exactly what it claims to do. Had these issues not appeared, this would’ve been a 5/5.
isy217 - I can’t get back to my song
I was making a song and then I went to popular songs and clicked on one and now I can’t get back to my song. But the app is really good
d1spo5ab13 - Whoever made this deserves a noble prize!!
Excellent tool for learning chords, scales and a handy song builder!! I’ve discovered my inspiration all over again learning basic chord progressions that fit and jamming scales over the top!
Timbertonka - Song writing ease
Makes learning your progressions so much faster,
Easy to use when my guitar isn’t near and I want some backing for lyric creation.
3/3 👍🏽’s from me
B.HillOneHundred - Awesome, but..
Hey Christian, love this app and have been using it for a while now. However, I really enjoyed using the experimental modes (e.g incorporating the harmonic minor into my progressions).
I can’t seem to find where to activate experimental modes. Is this still a feature in the new update?
Yarko76 - Great
Great app, but would be nice if we could use our own custom tunings for the guitar neck scale display or add extra strings for 7/8/9 string guitars
Hap369 - Almost but needs a few small changes.
A great app.
I wish it had a selection for six string bass.
I also wish for more chord voicing and configuration.
Still it is a good application.
Way s - Really nice app.
Well done on the app. It’s a pleasure to use.
Is there a way to pick which inversion of the chord to voice out? That would be incredible and very useful.
darksh1nes1991 - Good
Any chance of allowing custom note editing for each chord? So you can make custom sus chords, clusters, etc?
JonnoMorrison - Love this app - No more glitches during playback woo!
Hi there - this app is super great and very intuitive. Thanks!!
“I’m also experiencing some glitching in the sounds during playback. I’m using an iPhone 6Plus and not currently connected to any Bluetooth device.”
Thanks for fixing this issue!! Still a great app 😋✌🏻
Lucho SM - Excellent app ! A must have if you love music theory
A must have if you love music theory
sandfod - School price deal?

MM-WSI - Needs this feature
One of my favorite apps. Love the save feature, now I can save my creations. The one thing it’s missing is the ability to alter the minimum amount of beats per chord. The metronome works so that each chord gets a minimum of 4 clicks before it switches to next user inputed chord. There should be a way to edit this so that some chords, still locked into the tempo, can switch faster, maybe I only want my Bm for half the bar, and then an A chord for the other half. An edit feature where I can adjust the “length” that a chord rings out over the metronome would make this app perfect.
Coolionessteehee - Excellent
Well thought out app.
Y4y4luv - I absolutely love this app but...
I wish there was a feature to record notes, voice and other instruments along with the progressions. Sometimes when I'm singing and freestyling with the chords on the go If I don't record it I instantly forget and regret my life choices. I tried using the recording feature on my phone but I can't hear the chords in the app when it's on; and if I use a different device to record the sound isn't as crisp as I'd like it to be. It you are able to add this feature I'd appreciate it. Oh would you also be able to add chord notations I'm sorry if I'm asking for alot 😅. Either way I still love this app.
Mchinstman - Impeccable app
I can’t find much more to say but this: excellent tool for any musician / enthusiast. Kids love noodling around with it, I use it seriously as a music writing aid, doubles as a great learning tool.
hfxnick - Awesome
This is exactly what I was looking for! I’m a guitar player looking to level up on music theory and I find these tools so helpful.
Sprint290 - Great with 2 wishes
1 - Would like to be able to see intervals on guitar fretboard.
2 - MacOs version.
Dezo2016 - Feedback
An « chords/scales compatibility » function could make this app complete (essential)! Thanks
All Modes representation (notes of a mode pattern) on fretboard for every scale.
Using degree mode on fretboard instead of notes.
MarjolaineM - Good tool
First of all, thank you for this amazing app. It’s easy to use, super helpfull for songwriting and has a good flow/intuitive design.
On another subject, I would like to know what’s the synth « sound patch » your using? I really like the sound and Im trying to find something similar on my Roland, Im getting close, but not exactly! Thanks, it would be appreciated :)
ssssancho - Good but buggy
The App is great
The App needed to be forced shut twice in a day.
Not very stable
Bear-faced Cow - Almost perfect songwriting tool
This has been my go to songwriting tool for a while. I find it great for sketching out and experimenting with new ideas and scales. I have to knock off one star because of not being able to share my files between my phone and tablet via iCloud. That would make it the perfect tool for me.
TheGreatSaiyaman - Thank you TONALY.
This app is incredible. Honestly I’ve just been looking for an all encompassing app for modes and scales. The layout is so neat.
One thing I do wonder though... is there a way I can like move the scale chart while the audio plays the scale? I’d love to be able to practice all positions of the scale without having to put my guitar down to scroll it to the right or left.
Atomcze - Amazing app
I barely write a review but this app really deserves it! I was really surprised how much you got for this price. It’s working perfectly smooth and has many options. For me as a beginner to guitar this helps me a lot! Thank you! You did a really good job!
Noiusssss - Over expected !!!
I can see a huge amount of effort was put in developing to come up with an app that is both excelent in UX/UI design and professional music theories. Simple to navigate, lots of functions (even without the expansion), thorough guiding tour, ...
One small recommendation is that I would love to see the note-by-note chord playback option (I don’t know how to call this) beside the default playback.
Hats off for the dev team 👏
JorgeTrevilla - I love it - must have for musicians of any level!
I really enjoy the clear and easy layout - colors and general UI experience!
I was wondering on the possibility to add modality when changing chords? (Like let’s hear how this G chord would sound if it was borrowed from Lydian or Phrygian for example) does that makes sense? Anyways great job, love the app :)
Insectile - Great
Love it but two suggestions - I wish I could filter the scales. I bought the expansion but I only need maybe 20 of the 80. Would be nice to hide the ones I don’t use often.
Also I’d like to see the locrian aeolian mixed scale added, due to its prominence in metal.
Rbloch66 - Useful tool.... getting better!
It's odd that the chord buttons only play the sound upon release and not when tapped.
Planetharry - Great app
It’s a great app but I wish there was a ukulele fretboard and chord diagram. Please add this and more instruments. Also a way to distinguish the root note of chords displayed on fretboard or piano would be nice. Keep up the good work.
used sock - An amazing tool to speed up songwriting
This app is to say the least incredible. Yes it does serve as a chord progressions maker but it has so much more to offer than just that. Any scales be it piano or guitar it has ready for you depending on what key or mode you’re in. I would recommend this to any songwriters who don’t have the full grasp on music theory since this will help familiarize you with the concept and speed up your creation abilities.
cmjdm - Finally Understanding Theory
This is the best app I’ve used for learning theory!! It would be neat to support landscape mode and to have midi out so I can write a song and send the midi out from this app to another iOS app without the need to export a midi file. If this is possible I haven’t found out how to do it but if not I think A LOT of people would love that kind of feature in the future.
ReggieRoy - Version francaise
La version francaise est-elle en projet ?
Philsimard - Mesure
À moins que je ne me trompe, on ne peut mettre deux accords dans une même mesure..
4stringboy - Amazing!
Always wanted something like this!
Nich - Mount Royal - Such a time saver
I used to spend hours coming up with chord progressions and going back and forth from the Hooktheory books but now with this I don’t even have to have my MacBook to come up with the bones of a song. It really allows me to concentrate on the feeling of the chords rather than the theory of why they work together and speeds up my productions 1000%
ColMart - I love this app!
I’ve been using this app for about a week now and it’s amazing! It’s what I’ve been looking for and didn’t even know it. It’s made songwriting SO MUCH EASIER, and everything in the app is so smooth and great to use. Honestly worth every penny. The MIDI export works great too!
onthedl88 - Great idea, lacklustre features
Was looking for a tool to help me write songs, saw the advertisement on Instagram and it seemed like something I’d be interested in... I really hope there are more features in the future like changing from 4/4 to 3/4 and doing more than just 8 bars. More chord variations would be great too.... Very disappointed in this app because it has potential but feels extremely barebones.
I wouldn’t be so critical if this was a free app... unfortunately it is not. I hope the developer updates this app with features so I can re-review the app and use it for writing music.
J. Soul - Fantastic learning tool, has a great opportunity for MIDI control
Love everything about this app - MIDI export is a great feature but I would love to see it go one step further and add inter-app control along with real-time MIDI output via WiFi or lightning cable.
JaskaransinghJS19 - Need help
Having issue while exporting midi to my laptop DAW (ableton Live) because its doesn’t open ....
