Mapping Tonal Harmony Pro for iOS

By mDecks $4.99

Developer's Description

Mapping Tonal Harmony app is an incredible tool for songwriters, composers, students and teachers. Mapping Tonal Harmony Pro has been envisioned as auxiliary material in the study of Tonal Harmony. The main objective of this app is to provide the student, teachers, composers and/or songwriters with a tool that will aid them in hearing, analyzing, foreseeing and composing harmonic progressions without struggle, in all keys alike. The map has seven levels of complexity, from the basic diatonic neighborhood advanced secondary functions in major and minor modes and is viewable in all 12 keys and enharmonic spellings, plus a functional view (relative to the tonic). Each level is also accompanied by its respective workbook available at our webpage for further study and research. Tap on the chords in the map and view info about their function, mode scale. Activate the cadences paths to make most common paths between functions. Modulate to any key and view the progressions in the selected key or functionally. Select enharmonic spellings using sharps or flats. Transpose any progression to any key by tapping on the keyboard. View the current progression in the staff panel in standard chord notation instantaneously transposed to the selected key or functionally. In play mode you can tap on the chords in the staff to play it and find it on the map. In rec mode double tap to delete the chord or tap an empty spot to insert a chord by tapping them on the map. Make paths in the current progression visible to view the entire harmonic progression.
