App Store Description:

"Best music app tool I own, period!"
"Never downloaded an app so fast in my life"
"Excellent app for music theory. It is brilliantly supported by the developer who is continually updating it and adding more features. The app is indispensable for the reference and learning of music theory."

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. 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 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
- 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

Three MIDI AUv3 PLUGINS
CHORD/SCALE IDENTIFICATION:

CHORD PADS:
- The "Tonality: Chord Pads" AUv3 allows you to send MIDI to other apps
- Full control of the voicing: you can edit individual notes' octaves and velocities
- Grid sizes from 2x2 to 9x9
- MIDI trigger mappable with MIDI learn capability
- MIDI triggers can be set to affect the velocity of the chord
- 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
- View detailed statistics about each training session and your training history

MUSICAL TERMS DICTIONARY:

- Tempo, symbol, articulation, dynamics, and more

CUSTOMIZATION:

- Choose whether to hide "weird" chords like B# major
- Show only basic chords/scales (great for beginning musicians)
- Choose note naming (English or Solfège)
- Set speed for scales and length for chords

What's new in v6.3

More chord pad updates!
- Quickly add chords through MIDI: hold down any empty pad and send MIDI to the AUv3 instance to immediately assign those MIDI notes to the held pad. Relative velocities are preserved and Tonality will automatically detect the chord as well (this can be turned off in settings)!
- Rename tool for pads
- Better scrolling in AUv3: hold down on the far right side of the grid, then drag up and down
GRANDSTAFF:
- Display fixes in AUM (less jerky updates, nicer display)
