Scale-Master for iOS

By Gil Estes $0.99

Developer's Description

Scales are central to music. Intervals are central to scales. Tuning intervals is a complex process that must constantly be refined by the musician.Scale Master was designed by professional musicians and educators and developed by experienced software consultants and is a tool providing transparency to intonation deficiencies so that tuning is faster and more accurate.Through the use of "droning" sounds across various intervals, Scale Master provides a means of practicing intonation.Who can use Scale-Master?- Musicians (Professional and Amateur) striving to further perfect their tuning ability- Student Musicians just starting to come to grips with the challenges of Just Intonation within the ensemble- Band, Orchestra and Choral Directors looking for a way to help their ensembles "HEAR" what "In Tune" is- Music Theory, Music Appreciation and General Music teachers wanting to demonstrate scales, intervals, patterns and intonationHow it works:Using Equal Tempered tuning, select a root pitch and octave, then select the scale interval above the root pitch and select "Play". The generated droning sound will be a real-time interval based on Just Intonation producing the greatest resonance.There are a total of 780 droning renderings available for the first release.Beyond simple drones, you can also select a scale mode to display. The corresponding intervals will be high-lighted allowing easy, visual recognition of scale patterns. Scales included are:- Chromatic- Major- Natural Minor- Harmonic Minor- Blues- Whole Tone- Major Pentatonic- Minor PentatonicThere is also a scale "Auto-Play" function that will play the droning root and the corresponding scale interval in half notes at quarter=60bpm allowing the musician to work with tuning and harmonizing in real-time.There are a total of 420 scale configurations available for the first release.What Others are Saying:"I think your app will be widely useful, better and more convenient than the typical tuner. It also will be a good companion tool for users of my 'Breakfast' Intonation practice booklet." David Schwartz"This new app looks wonderful to me, Gil!! A great teaching tool not only for trombonists but also for music theory and many more applications for musicians. Great idea!!" Tom Senff - Trombone Professor and Trombonist with Stan Kenton Orchestra"WOW! I like this a great deal. I teach AP Music theory. I think this would be tremendously helpful with drilling intervals." Rob Optiz - High School Band Director"When my students use this, they seem to adjust automatically in the correct direction." Private Trombone Instructor
