Random Roots - Music Trainer for iOS

By Anton Schwartz Free

Developer's Description

Random Roots is a music practice tool that teaches you to internalize harmony at a deep level. It organizes & optimizes your progress as you become more fluent at expressing ideas in different keys.

It is the gateway to that skill that all creative musicians seek: the ability to play ideas you hear in your head.

HOW IT WORKS

You start with a musical idea: maybe a simple phrase you're working on or one your teacher assigns you or a single chord voicing on piano or just a note or two.

Random Roots walks you through performing it in different keys. It throws a key at you and another and each time you hear and execute your idea in that key.

It can feed them to you automatically, accompanying you in time, and it keeps track of dozens of exercise that youre working on, and which keys give you the most trouble for which exercise. It makes your practice time highly efficient and effective.

FEATURES

SIMPLE TO GET STARTED

Use it right away. For free.

ORGANIZE YOUR PRACTICE

Efficient learning requires working on lots of separate skills and revisiting each one often. Random Roots organizes all your exercises in nested folders and gives you instant access to the ones you're currently working on.

PLAY ALONG

The app plays the root of each key, using your choice of instrument sound.

BUILD YOUR EARS

The app lets you imagine the sound of what youre about to play. That not only trains your ability to hear, but builds connections in your mind between the sound of the music, the fingerings, and the music theory.

CHOOSE YOUR KEYS

Practice each exercise in exactly the keys you're ready for.

CUSTOMIZE EACH EXERCISE

The app remembers your custom settings (keys, meter, tempo, form) separately for each exercise and recalls them automatically.

AUTOMATIC & MANUAL MODES

Have keys advance automatically in tempo or whenever youre ready, upon a tap of the screen or a tap of your foot.

FOCUS ON YOUR WEAK POINTS

Tell the app which keys you have more & less trouble with for a given exercise. Whenever you play that exercise the app will tailor the keys it shows you to optimize your progress.

ALL KEYS EFFICIENTLY

Musicians traditionally practice all keys in the circle of fifths or chromatically. But those ways have serious drawbacks that impede learning. Random Roots gives you a more diverse & efficient workout.

A SOURCE FOR IDEAS

The app comes with a number of sample exercises built in. You can download more online for free or create your own.

USE YOUR FEET

Control the app with a bluetooth foot pedal to free up your hands. Plug & play ready.

LEARN UNCOMMON KEY NAMES

Musicians often have to deal with chords like D#m7 and CbMaj7. Random Roots helps you get familiar with uncommon root names if you like.

CUSTOM SEQUENCES

Practice phrases over any chord sequence you like ii-V-I's, tritone substitutions, backdoor turnarounds, Coltrane changes or enter your own.
