Casio has this week released a new Chordana Composer iOS App that allows you to write and compose your own tunes directly from your smartphone even without the knowledge of how to compose music.
Simply enter a two-bar melody and the Casio Chordana Composer application will automatically create a whole tune for you via three different input methods.
The app can even function if you don’t input the full tunes and supports iOS 8 devices in the form of the iPhone 5, 5c and5s, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and iPod touch (5th generation). Casio explains a little more :
“A melody that comes to you in the middle of an ordinary day… Have you ever thought: “This would make a really great tune. But I need to know how to compose, and it’s no good if I can’t read music. And that all takes time to learn”?
Chordana Composer will take care of all those concerns. Just enter 2 bars of the motif you thought of.
Chordana Composer will automatically make it into an entire tune.
You can choose from 3 types of input method. In “Keyboard input mode” you use a virtual keyboard, in “Notation input mode, you paste the notes into a sheet of music, and in “Microphone input mode”, you just sing the motif into the microphone.
In Notation input mode, you can edit the the created melody yourself. If you enable the Hints function when you’re editing the tune, the notation is color coded as a reference for your edits (notes that match the chord, notes in the same scale, notes that increase the tension and other notes you need to be aware of).
Automatic composition by choosing “Genre” and “Concept” Once you’ve entered the melody using one of the modes above, you’re ready for automatic composition. Choose whichever combination of “Genre”, “Concept”, “Range of melody movement” and “Level of melody tension” creates a tune that best matches what you’ve imagined.”
