A music composition tool for everyone, from aspiring composers to professional musicians!

- A 5-octave keyboard
- A 6-string Guitar (right and left-handed)
- A 5-string Bass Guitar (right and left-handed)
- A Standard Drum Kit (right and left-handed)
- A comprehensive set of tools to transcribe drum, (bass-)guitar and keyboard loops:
* Free Play mode. This tool records what you play on the touch-sensitive instrument. When you've recorded your loop, you can add them to the your instrument track repeatedly
* Write Notes mode. Each tap represents a note with your chosen duration. You can step back and forth to add notes to the same time frame. When you've recorded your loop, you can add them to the your instrument track repeatedly
* Note Painter mode. Just draw a line or a dot to add notes directly on sheet music (piano and drums only).
- A comprehensive set of tools to transcribe keyboard and guitar rhythm sections:
* add chords from a very comprehensive database by key
* derive the chords from a base key, a heptatonic scale and the chord progression
* Align chords to a given key or fret so they all line up well
* Manually tap or record the notes. The app will tell you the most likely chords.
* use the built-in microphone to try and detect the chord.
- Dictate noes by humming or playing a tune through the built in microphone.
- Play back your own midi, but also MIDI files from your SD card with animated upcoming keys from any of the instruments (keyboard only)
- custom samples (you can record them via the built-in microphone and edit them in the Instruments tool)!

Feedback is very welcome to make this app even more useful and comprehensive!
