Customer Reviews of the Mapping Tonal Harmony Pro App

Buggy, but good

Occlusal's Review of Mapping Tonal Harmony Pro

Reviewed on 8/28/19 2:07 PM

I downloaded this app yesterday and it is full of bugs that keep you from being able to see everything on the screen. It is very annoying and keeps me from being able to use the app as intended. I have found work arounds, but they require more time and unnecessarily complicate the processes this app is supposed to simplify. Please fix, developers. Once resolved, this app will but a 5 out of 5.

Convoluted

The iPad version just isn’t what the ads say it is.

Amazing!

This app is a victory for why iPads are so awesome. It allows you to learn theory through sound and visuals that make sense. Hats off to this developer and thanks for helping all musicians stride ahead in understanding and creativity.

Still stuck in Version 6

Pansystansy's Review of Mapping Tonal Harmony Pro

Reviewed on 8/28/19 2:07 PM

I’ve bought pretty much all their apps, and this one twice, one for my MacBook and the other for iPad. Obviously, as a traveling musician, I use the iPad much more yet its stuck in version 6. Version 7 is a huge upgrade so if I were you I wouldn't buy this till its Version 7.

5 stars.

Meromorphic's Review of Mapping Tonal Harmony Pro

Reviewed on 8/28/19 2:07 PM

This is a great app! I've had it for ~a month, and it's really helping me get a more intuitive feel for harmony. I've read harmony books in the past, but having this app by my side as an easily "playable map" while studying feels so efficient. When I think about chords now I find myself imagining them at their particular location on the map, and seeing the surrounding harmonic neighborhood. I love it for composing too, especially the way it does voice leading. Other harmony apps I've tried don't do this, and I find that their abrupt voicing distracts me from hearing the actual harmony as clearly. This app does it right.

Fabulous composition tool

I wish I would have had this app years ago when I first started studying composition. Starting with a key and simple diatonic chords, you can explore chord changes through related keys, borrowing chords from other keys, easily auditioning different ideas. You can also put together a chart with your chord changes, then have the app play back your progression with accompaniment (piano/bass/drums) in multiple different styles, with different variations every time. It’s like having a skilled backup band to instantly play through your changes. Once you have something you like, you can easily export to a DAW like Cubasis. The developer is very responsive. I’ve emailed him several questions about various features and he’s been back to me with informative answers promptly. I was a bit put off when first installing the app, and it asked me to create a user ID for an online database. I realized that all I needed to do was create a nickname and password - that was it. When I’m creating progressions, I simply mark them as ‘private’ and they are not shared with the community. But if you wanted to share them with other band members or students, you could easily do so. I’m still exploring and learning, moving through the constellation of related chords and tools. The online database of chord changes is like a dictionary of familiar progression fragments, a very useful and inspirational resource. Highly recommended.

Features for iPad are not the same as listed

Some Bass Player's Review of Mapping Tonal Harmony Pro

Reviewed on 8/28/19 2:07 PM

The features in the list are for the desktop version, not the iPad version. You can’t browse “hundreds” of standards, there is maybe a dozen and you cannot import the fake book xml files that contain others, as you can on the desktop version. So, it has interesting features but unless you want to enter a bunch of songs by hand, you are stuck with the songs and progressions that are already in the app. Kinda a drag because the accompaniment play-along ability of the app is great, way way better than iRealB, better sounds and better comping. Hopefully in the future you can import files on the iPad version and load up the xml fake book files provided by the publisher.

So cool
