Give back to the community they said. Just another of my attempts to do so.
That looks great!
Unfortunately, I'm only an iOS dev. Therefore, no android.
Agreed. I'd download today if it were android. Let us know when its 2.0!
Is there any way of running it on a Mac laptop?
Unfortunately not. iOS is separate from macOS. Tough, depending on how much time I have off from work at Christmas, I can look how similar iOS and macOS development is and see if it's easy to port it. Probably won't happen, though, if I have to pay for a Mac developer license - long as the app is free.
And to be fair, I'd rather spend the time practicing bass. lol.
I just downloaded your app and look forward to trying it out - thanks!
I think that is a good choice!
Thanks! I'll try it out.
I've been looking for something to do for Android. Mind if I port it?
Rather than port it, I'd much rather you make your own version - I'll be adding things intermittently to the app (ability to play arpeggios & inversions instead of just scales, ability to set the sound that plays and so on) and I'd rather not want to worry about having someone else keep up. Get creative; put your own stamp on it; improve upon what I've built! That's the only way we learn.
Hey I really like the app, simple and very useful, one thing I don’t get is the he time signature . Looks like it doesn’t affect anything.
And probably it would be nice to have and option to choose A440 or a442 etc.
For those of you messaging me about sound in the app: make sure you're not in silent/vibration mode on your phone.
Also, I'm putting out a tiny update today: scales will now go to the octave and back. It was a silly mistake I made that they didn't. So now a C major will be C D E F G A B C C B A G F E D C.....
Time signature doesn't currently affect anything, you're right. But I have some plans in the future which required time signature implementation from the beginning. So it'll have an effect in a future update. Right now, you can pretend? haha.
To be honest: I whipped this up for myself over a long weekend so it's not the most polished thing in the world. Most of the work was not the actual app itself but modeling the vast majority of Western musical theory so that I could do the things I wanted to eventually - the app'll be able to generate standard chord progressions (ii V Is,
I V VI iii iv I IV V etc), arpeggions in any inversion, chords with whatever extensions, and more.
I have to say that regularly practicing with a device connected to the internet is not worth it. Airplane mode if you must. I would also limit this to a small portion of practice that involves Simandl or equivalent etudes, basic metronome work and scales and arpeggios without electronic aide. It is a nice thing to work on, but, should not be a priority over the traditional practice concepts.
I very much agree with this but want to point out:
This is not a net based app, so practice offline/airplane all you want
I usually use this for 5-10 minutes a day when I'm warming up to really get my ears and my hand in tune
I would not recommend only practicing with it - you do not want it to become a crutch. But it's a helpful tool to practice/check intonation in an immediate way and therefore correct positioning immediately.
Great idea and nice implementation.
Arpeggios and inversions sound great.
As far as features for the future, it would be great if it had a setting where it automatically cycled all the way around the circle of 4ths.
Sounds like a plan.
A few suggestions:
Add arpeggios. I suggest the sequence from boardwalkin’ as well as single chords and thirds.
The tone needs more harmonic content. Add both some fifth and some octave or add some squarewave.
