App Store Description:

"Best Music App Tool I Own, period!"

The ultimate chord, scale, and music theory reference tool for musicians of all skill levels. Tonality allows you to view and hear a large database of piano/guitar 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 piano chords that match MIDI input you route to it, or as a MIDI source and send chords to other apps.

CHORDS:
- Chord dictionary with over 1,000 chords for piano and guitar
- Listen to a piano 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 (on either a piano or fretboard)
- Sort chords by key, number of pitches, key span, and more
- View different inversions and omittable notes
- View a table of related scales (especially useful for jazz musicians learning to improvise)
- Chord identification - record a chord through your device's microphone and Tonality will transcribe and identify it. Options include overtone rejection and tuning forgiveness.

GUITAR CHORD CHARTS:
- View guitar chord charts for all chords (even custom ones)
- Fully interactive – swipe across the strings to play each voicing
- Supports multiple guitar tunings and other instruments such as ukulele, mandolin, banjo, and bass
- Includes generation by traits such as fret range and number of fingers used
- Left-handed option

SCALES:
- Scale dictionary with over 500 scales
- Commonly used piano scales and fingerings
- Search for scales by root and name
- Reverse search for scales containing certain notes on a piano
- 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)

Three MIDI AUv3 PLUGINS
CHORD IDENTIFICATION:
- Open "Tonality: Chord Identification" as an Audio Unit MIDI processor and view the names of the piano 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
- View MIDI input in a grand staff (treble/bass clef). 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:
- Learn to recognize notes, melodies, intervals, chords, and scales by ear!
- After each session, you can view what gave you trouble and create a level with just those things
- Ability to create custom levels
- View detailed statistics about each training session and your training history

MUSICAL TERMS DICTIONARY:
- View common musical terms and their definitions/illustrations
- Tempo, symbol, articulation, dynamics, and more

CUSTOMIZATION:
- Create your own chords, scales, fingerings, ear training levels, and dictionary terms
- Change the color scheme
- Choose the playback instrument (piano, electric piano, guitar, or any .sf2 soundfont file)
- Choose whether to show all keys (including theoretical ones) or only commonly used keys
- Show only basic chords and scales (great for beginning musicians)
- Choose note naming (English or Solfège)
- Set playback speed for scales and playback length for piano chords

What's new in v4.5.6

New:
- Option to display seventh chords in all "Scale Chords" tables (Settings -> Display -> Show Sevenths for Scale Chords)
- New preset for chord pads: generate a grid with chords (either triads or sevenths) that come from a given major/minor key

Fixed:
- Accidental display for weirder keys in the grandstaff AU (previously, notes like E in the key of Cb major would display as E natural instead of F flat)
