App Store Description

"Best Music App Tool I Own, period!"

The ultimate music theory reference tool for musicians of all skill levels. Tonality allows you to view and listen to a large database of piano chords and scales and features a chord-recognition tool that can identify chords you play on your instrument. You can run Tonality as an AUv3 MIDI receiver and view chords that match MIDI input you route to it, or as a MIDI source and send chords to other apps.

CHORDS:
- Over 1,000 chords and the ability to create custom chords
- Listen to a chord by tapping on it, or arpeggiate by swiping left or right
- Search for chords by root, quality, extension, or any combination of these
- Reverse search for chords containing certain notes
- Sort chords by key, number of pitches, key span, and more
- View different inversions and omittable notes
- View chord scale degrees and note names
- View a table of related scales (especially useful for jazz musicians learning to improvise)
- View chords on a piano and in the staff (treble or bass clef)
- Chord identification - record a chord through your device's microphone and Tonality will transcribe and identify it

SCALES:
- Commonly used scales and fingerings and ability to create custom scales
- Search for scales by root and name
- Reverse search for scales containing certain notes
- Sort scales alphabetically, by key, by number of pitches, and more
- View scale degrees and note names
- View ascending and descending versions
- View scales on a piano and in the staff (treble or bass clef)
- Add custom fingerings

Three MIDI AUv3 PLUGINS
CHORD IDENTIFICATION:
- Open "Tonality: Chord Identification" as an Audio Unit MIDI processor and view the names of the chords you play in real time
- Tapping on any of these chords will reveal detailed information just like the main app
CHORD PADS:
- The "Tonality: Chord Pads" AUv3 allows you to send MIDI chords to other apps
- This plugin gives you full control of the voicing: you can edit each note's octave and velocity individually
- Grid sizes range from 2x2 to 9x9
- Supports drag and drop to reorder chord pads
- Custom presets can be saved and shared across AU hosts
- Useful as a songwriting and composition tool as well as for live performance: you can try out chord progressions or load the chords to your favorite song
GRAND STAFF
- This audio unit allows you to view MIDI input in a grand staff (treble/bass clef). It also displays chord names in real time and lets you select the key signature to use.

CIRCLE OF FIFTHS:
- Interactive circle of fifths: view key signatures and scales for major and minor keys
- Jump to relative or parallel keys
- View scale chords in the selected key (I, ii, iii, etc.)

EAR TRAINING:

MUSICAL TERMS DICTIONARY:
