This widget is awesome!
The only thing I would change is menu of scales.
Instead of a alphabetic order, I would group scales by their relation or parent, for instance, all scales of the major mode, then all scales from minor modes and so on... For me makes more sense.

Still broken in Leopard. The problems are not just cosmetic, but functional. I suspect it has to be rewritten to

Too bad, it was a nice thing to have around when it worked.

Broken in 10.5.2. The background elements of the widget are missing, and most of the gui lists are unpopulated and unresponsive.

I like this widget a lot. One problem-it doesn't save my settings after a restart so I have to keep unchecking the chord option. Otherwise it's great.

Good tool, but the background is missing and the initial load graphic is stretched. It is hard to move around without the background to "grab". I still would like to see a widget that displays the notes on a staff as well and that can be triggered by a MIDI controller.
