There are two methods for composition:

The COMPOSE ALL app feature creates a new melody and accompanying harmony from scratch.


The notes, chords and note articulation are changed using the drop down menus for each note.

If you want to auto compose some notes of melody just check them and press Compose Notes button. Then the notes will be composed for you.

How can you use it:

At app start wait for all sounds to load.
1. Select RIFF or SOLO mode, tempo, note scale and note length.
2. Create melody rhythm by checking the checkboxes below the notes.
3. Press COMPOSE NOTES button to generate the notes for selected rhythm.
4. Listen to melody repeatedly and tweak the notes manually or with the help of auto composer by leaving checked the notes targeted for change .
5. You can select note articulation (muted/accented/slide/harmonics) using drop down menu on the bottom of each note.

You can play melody, harmony or rhythm by checking corresponding check boxes.

AUTO COMPOSER selects notes for these positions where the checkboxes are checked. If no notes are checked then melody is composed from scratch.

AUTO MODE - when active the melody is autocomposed every 4 (changeable in Settings) cycles. During playing you can save the composed melody via Save button.

Three types of AUTO MODE are available:

1. When AUTO MODE is active and COMPOSE ALL is selected then both melody and harmony will be autocomposed every 4 cycles. The text below button PLAY will show "AUTO ALL".

2. When AUTO MODE is active and COMPOSE NOTES is selected then melody only will be autocomposed every 4 cycles.

3. When AUTO MODE is active and COMPOSE CHORDS is selected then harmony only will be autocomposed every 4 cycles.
