Train your ear for music composition/improvisation.

Overview

ModalEarX is an educational application that was designed for the composer/improvisor in need of increased skills in the aural identification of modal melodic and harmonic materials. The app creates an infinite number of examples of tetrachords, modes, scales, and single or groups of modal chords. The examples are displayed on staves as with any notation program for the checking of answers.

There are three levels of difficulty with the third containing some very advanced and beautiful modal chords. As a bonus, some of the examples in the multiple chord level could be developed into compositions putting the app in the agorithmic-composition category.

Make sure all the fonts are copied into the fonts folder as per the instructions, otherwise it won't launch. This little app has great potential. However as it only supports modal harmony in its current incarnation, it is only useful for the most advanced of jazz musicians. What it is missing is the fundamental chords (major, minor, dominant, no extensions + extensions, altered dominants, diminished + augmented chords). Add these and it will be an A+ app for all muso's.

good points, although the app was developed for students of jazz composition at the U. of Miami, I will add the more basic chordal materials for the rest of the world...Ron

You probably did not put the music font in a font folder, you get one star for not reading directions.
