This circle of fifths highlights the chords of the current key. In this way you can see directly which chords are major, minor and diminished. This is very helpful for composing and practicing! For Beginners: Get familiar with the circle of fifths. You can compose and practice easily chord progressions and visualize them in the circle. You can practice scales in different keys and clefs. Playback scales and train your ear. For Pro's: Display and playback 4-note chords and practice scales from ionian to melodic minor. All Features: PROGRESSION MODE Compose progressions, playback them and see the chord relations within the circle of fifths. You can put together 4-8 bars and repeat them. In this way you can compose two parts (like verse and chorus) and hear how they sound like together! You can adjust the tempo (40 - 240 bpm). Playback progressions with or without click and/or piano. Practice progressions along with the circle of fifths. Your progressions will be visualized in the circle. There are some predefined common progressions or you can compose your own. You can pick chords from the current key for your progressions and adjust the mode to ionian, aeolian, dorian, phrygian, lydian, mixolydian, locrian or even harmonic and melodic minor. You can display either the chords, roman numerals or both. Quickly change the key for your progression. Once you've composed a progression you can quickly change the key for the whole progression.

I want to maintain this app and implement your ideas! As a freelancer I can only realize this with a little finacial support. For you it is the price of a cappuccino, for me the possibility to offer you and improve this app! THANK YOU AND ENJOY!!!



  • Great app for musicians

    By SirJergoff
    Would love to see a melody section you can play over the chords
  • Great but needs work

    By The Mordekai
    The app is fantastic and the UI is aesthetically pleasing! Except it be great to have the progression keep on playing when I play the song from the music app on the phone. As well as allowing me to exclude certain chords if for example I want to include a rest or sustain a note for one or two measures.
  • Very cool app

    By J.artistry
    Very good for song writers! Please add more flexibility w the grid.. (I.e. being able to put chords in any part of a bar) This app can be a go to song idea machine for musicians before We record them.. also say I have a chord progression playing, u guys should make it so that when The user switches to scales the user can write a melody also.
  • Borrowed chords should be included

    By Leek Freek
    I love the idea of the app, but I’m somewhat upset it’s restrained to only 7 chords within the key. I’d give it 5 stars if you could borrow chords from different keys or parallel modes.
  • Good app

    By JThorough
    Pretty cool app with a really nice interface. Although, I can't figure out if it's possible to add chords to the progression outside of the key. This is a little annoying, however the app is still good overall
  • Borrowed Chords!!!

    By Face it, It's the Truth
    The app is fun BUT... I’d love to see an integration of borrowed chords and secondary dominants within a chosen key. Something like setting your key and then being able to shift the circle/mode around without changing the chords you’ve placed in your progression. And the ability to integrate 7ths, 11ths, 13ths, sus2, and sus4 without toggling for every chord.
  • The best

    By Ace with
    This app shows the interplay of the scales, modes, and progressions in the circle. It is great for songwriters, music students and theorists. Works well for all instruments; plus works great as a backing track to get down the basics of scales and modes. Also great for improvising basics. A must have for all music students.
  • Love it

    By Lutguy
    I love this app! So easy to operate
  • Awesome review

    By Wallygatorman
    This app is sooo very helpful. Former piano player learning guitar. Usually trying to visualize the circle on my piano while playing my guitar! Now trying to learn the relationships of the l, IV, V and full circle on guitar not referring to piano. This makes it so easy to practice. Wonderful. Thx.
  • Great tool, great design

    By umami
    Elegantly designed and easy to use. There’s a wealth of information and utility here. Nice little touches like the next chord in the sequence flickering before it plays. A few small translation quirks in English, but no doubt they’ll get smoothed out in future updates.
