    A unique musical instrument. An interactive music theory medium. A universal MIDI tool. An amazing solmization machine. All in one: "MIDI SolFa Mode-Go-Round" unites and extends the possibilities of the apps "Musk MIDI Keyboard", "Musk MIDI Player", "Musk Diatonic Modes" and the "SolFa Mode-Go-Round". Therefore there are many creative and didactic use cases. Play and grasp music!

    Use cases:
    ==========
  • Play on the diatonic or chromatic keyboard.
  • Study or teach scales and church modes.
  • Discover improvising polyphonic canons.
  • Learn Movable-Do and Fixed-Do solmization.
  • Connect to your MIDI apps and devices or play with connected "SolFa Mode-Go-Rounds".
  • Load sounds and polyphonic pieces.
  • Tune into your part. Hear its solmization.

  • Touch instruments:
    ==================
  • The app features a diatonically oriented spiral shaped keyboard with 7 keys per octave. (Tone circle)
  • With it you can easily play well sounding melodies and chords in major, minor or other church modes.
  • + Besides it, there is a chromatic piano keyboard. (iPhone: Landscape orientation, iPad: double tap piano-button)

    Sounds:
    ======
  • Instrumental sounds: a General-MIDI sound font is pre-installed. (See also "Musk MIDI Keyboard" for more options.)
  • To study church modes and solmization, the syllables "do re mi fa so la ti" where recorded in 3 octaves.
  • + Freely mix instrument and solmization sounds. Listen to the solmization of the tenor, hear the bass as piano and the soprano as flute notes.
    + Choose a small choir ("Erlebnisland") with warm sounds or synthetic Bruno, who really sings to the point.

    Music theory:
    =============
  • The touch instruments change according to the selected tonic and mode.
  • There are 5 mathematical-musical base modulations.
  • Get a fine feeling for the character differences between the diatonic scales Major (Ionian), natural Minor (Aeolean) and the church modes Dorian, Phrygian, Lydian, Mixolydian and Locrian.
  • Understand how they are interrelated.
  • + Improvise up to five-part counterpoint canons "note-by-note": You play the melody and the canon assistent shows how to proceed.
  • You can also invent normal canons. Just play in half notes.
  • + You can change labels on the tone circle, e.g. to test your or your students knowledge.

    Solmization:
    ============
  • The syllables depend on the pitch, the chosen tonic/mode configuration and the solmization method.
  • They are shown on the tone circle and can be heared.
  • Solmization methods: absolute solmization (Fixed-Do), relative solmization (Movable-Do) and scale degree solmization.

  • MIDI features:
    ==============
  • With this app, you can send and receive MIDI notes and play back MIDI files.
  • All features of "Musk MIDI Keyboard" and "Musk MIDI Player" are available. (See "Related Apps" in the App Store)
  • + Record tracks and export midi files.
    + During recording of notes, the related solmization syllables can be attached to the track as lyrics. These can be shown by any MIDI-Karaoke player.
    + This app sends and receives configuration change commands. You can keep all connected "MIDI SolFa Mode-Go-Rounds" in sync.
    + You can also add bass notes with an external notation app. These will trigger tonic/mode changes.
