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
