ChordCalculus is a tool for players of fretted instruments. ChordCalculus will allow the user to choose from a large number of pre-defined fretted instruments in a variety of tunings. Additionally, the user can define new instruments and/or tunings. Single or multiple capos can be added. The user then picks from one of four operating modes using the segmented selectors at the center top of the display:

* (C)hord Calculator:

Show all fingerings for chords for a given instrument/tuning, filters, capos, and fret span.

* Chord (I)dentifer:

For a given instrument/tuning and fingering, display all possible names for a chord

* (S)cale Display:

For an instrument/tuning, key and scale type, display the scale, and play a two-octave scale

* (P)rogression Player:

Derived from chord mode, display fingerings for a chord progression. Also plays chords in sequence.

In all cases, the chords can be played as a chord or arpeggio and the scale played back.

As of version 2.0, an instrument tuner is accessed by long touching the tuning button.

What's New

Hopefully catching bad configuration file crashes that are occurring for some users. The app now catches these and resets to factory settings. Please let the developer know if this occurs more than once via the web site.

Note indicator's red is now "milder". Let the developer know if you prefer this or the "stop light" red version
Now the Tone Locator Filter and the Quick Chord/Root selectors coexist peacefully on the iPhone.
