ProChords - Harmony for iPhone in your pocket




ProChords is a unique iPhone application developed to write songs with professional chord progressions, in an easy and intuitive way.
In the process of writing a song, ProChords offers an extensive variety of options as to what chord could be played next, after the sequence of chords you have already chosen during a writing process of a new song.
These suggestions are based on thousands of successful songs and may inspire you to find and choose new chords, which you wouldnt normally have thought of in a particular context.
ProChords is very useful for songwriters looking to compose songs of professional standards, without having to spend years studying music theory. But it is equally helpful for professionals who are looking for new paths and alternative ideas.
“ProChords is an application for writing chord progressions - with a little help from the world greatest songwriters.”
ProChords is loaded with more than 9000 different progression patterns extracted from the latest 50 years of rhythmic music.
These patterns are used to suggest possible movements at any given point in your song based on the previous sequence of chords.
But ProChords doesnt write your music for you. It merely suggests a huge variety of options starting with the most common alternatives.
ProChords was created to help you to new creative ideas not to do the song writing for you. Software doing all the composing for you is available elsewhere but that is really not very creative.
ProChords has been developed to inspire and it certainly does.
Be Creative Everywhere
You don’t have to sit by your instrument to work out new ideas for melodies. You can literally work anywhere. with or without headphones. And having it next to you when you are playing your instrument is an endless source of inspiration, and will definitely boost your creative ideas.

So it looks like an alternative for Harmony Improvisator plugin but for iphone

Looks pretty well, gonna play with it later an tell u what i think

Got mail about iphone version of  Harmony Improvisator plugin and they gonna think it over

I cut myself on barbwire... Zero 7



Pop Art Blue - Zero 7

Yeah we are running and how we are running
Across the hills in the pop art blue
Buzzers fly above the car
Circling us as if they knew
If i fall down if i fall down
Darling will you reel me in?
If i lose it if i lose it
Will you remind where we've been?

So we were climbing and how we were climbing
The cartoon trees up to the sky
As the sun drops off the page
Goldy flew into my eye

Well it's all up from here.
It's like i can taste opportunity near.
I cut myself on barbwire getting wood for the fire
I was too.. busy staring at you...
You...

So then we were floating up we were floating like particles into the night
High above the factories
We hitched a lift on a satellite
Lover will you spin me round?
May we never fall back to ground

Well it's all up from here
It's like i can taste opportunity near
I cut myself on barbwire
Getting wood for the fire
I was too.. busy staring at you...

Logic Pro 9.01 update and Automap integration

The latest update to Logic Pro, v9.0.1, has been enhanced to include full Automap integration. This full integration means that instrument settings and plug-in parameters inside Logic can now all be accessed from all Automap-enabled controllers, such as the brand new Nocturn Keyboard, an SL MkII MIDI controller, or an Apple iPhone or iPod touch running the Automap app.


Now, when using an Automap-enabled Novation MIDI controller with the latest version of Logic, the mapping of the knobs, faders and buttons automatically adapts to the plug-in that's in focus on the screen. What's more, with Novation's SL MkII series of controllers, Logic's parameter names appear on the LCDs, giving you labelled visual feedback next to the controls on your hardware.


Currently, the parameter mappings have not been optimised for Logic, however, thanks to Automap's easy-to-use graphical user interface, you can customise and save the settings that best suit your workflow, then upload them to the Novation website user area.


Novation say that mappings for Logic's key plug-ins will be included with an imminent update to Automap 3.
