After the success of Music Bundle, which is employed in many schools and universities, RoGame Software releases Music Bundle Pro with the notable addition of ChordLab.
Music educators as well as students of all degrees will find most anything they could want in an educational product in this bundle. A self-contained, illustrated musical terms reference in Almond, a chord calculator for harmony showing standard voicings in notation as well as fingerings for guitar and piano, a metronome in DaCapo featuring sampled drum sounds, and Mozart which starts you off in the process of reading music in all common clefs.
Music Bundle Pro makes these applications more affordable.The current introductionary price of $39.95 is a limited time offer and a free demo is available here: www.rogame.com
These are the applications included in Music Bundle Pro:
Almond is a musical terms database and reader. In addition to most common phrases in music today also standard Italian and German terminology is included. Definitions are easily copied to the clipboard for use in MemoPad and other applications. Almond’s database can be included in the global Find application for easy access.
ChordLab is the essential tool for song-writers and musicians in general- assists with all chord spelling tasks. Features a built-in Circle of Fifths and chord finder for when you know the pitches, but not the chord. Many times chord spelling becomes an essential task, be it to communicate what you are playing to others or simply when writing it down. To complicate matters music theory is often complex and correctly spelling a chord that may have sharps AND flats, double flats or double sharps is not always easy. That is where ChordLab can be of great assistance as a sort of chord calculator.
DaCapo keeps the beat for you. In addition to regular metronome functions, like Italian speed names + bpm display, adjustable tuning pitch and visual indicator there are many other features. Accents can be set at different intervals to emulate meters like 3/4 or 7/8. Also measure groupings can be created like a 12 measure blues form. In addition DaCapo features easy access with big buttons, hardkey mapping and great graphic layout. A must-have for practicing on the road. Supports Palm OS 5 and the Tungsten 5-way button.
Mozart is a new game for musicians. In the tradition of Giraffe you are confronted with a steady stream of notes that you have to input correctly. The slight difference is that you’ll need to know the name of the note, before you tap the buttons. The difficulty increases until you need to identify several ledger lines above and below the staff. You can choose different clefs and input methods as well as two player levels.
