The COMPOSE ALL app feature creates a new melody and accompanying harmony from scratch. You can use this feature as fresh ideas generator and then tweak the melody.
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:

The notes and chords are changed using the drop down menus for each note. You can listen for both melody and harmony or only one of them using check boxes in control menu.

Safety starts with understanding how developers collect and share your data. Data privacy and security practices may vary based on your use, region, and age. The developer provided this information and may update it over time.
If you could please add an undo function. Spent 25 minutes working this one sound and forgot to save. UPDATE: Wow, I was not expecting the developer to respond so quickly. I also discovered the settings menu you got to stay there's a lot of advanced features in this app. As I learn more about it I fall more in love with it. Made a beautiful song last night wish I could share it. Used bandlab to bring the sound to life.

Seems good but I need to play with it more, please can you add Chinese scale and a dark/oled mode?
August 27, 2022
Hi, which Chinese scale? Usually chinese music uses pentatonic scale. Another one is C, D, E, F#, G, A, B which matches Lydian mode and you can use Lydian scale.
