The definitive isomorphic keyboard.

Musix is a fully-customizable multiple-layout isomorphic musical keyboard.

Each hexagon on the screen is a note, and surrounding hexagons are harmonically related.

CHECKOUT the Moatigator video on youtube for an example (user is shiverware)!

IMPORTANT note for iPod TOUCH Users: The current version does not output audio (only midi and OSC work). This will be corrected in the next release.

Features coming in the next release:

- Fix for audio on iPod Touch

- Core Midi Support!

- Scale and Mode Selection

- Rectangle and Squares ... Yes Musix is getting other shapes!

WHY MUSIX:

- Learn how to play every major and minor chord in minutes

- Play along with your favorite song without practicing for years

- Learn one shape, play in any key

- Explore music by the relationship between notes

       not by placement on an instrument

- Play along with your friends without being an expert

- Release the song in your head

FEATURES:

✔ Different Key Sizes

✔ Slide the keys to show the notes you need

✔ Multiple Instrument Sounds

✔ OSC/Midi Support

     - Inter-note expressivity

✔ Preset Layouts

✔ Create Your Own Layout (iPad only)

✔ Play along with your favourite songs

FROM WIKIPEDIA:

"An isomorphic keyboard is a musical input device consisting of a

two-dimensional array of note-controlling elements (such as buttons or

keys) on which any given sequence and/or combination of musical

intervals has the “same shape” on the keyboard wherever it occurs –

within a key, across keys, across octaves, and across tunings."

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:

What this means is that once you have learned a pattern, say a chord

or a scale, that pattern is the same for all keys, even the dreaded

A-Flat! What's more, you can learn to play melodies on a traditional

keyboard by playing them on the Musix keyboard and watching where the

sharps and flats go.

Songwriters benefit by discovering new melodies and musical

relationships. Novices find it easy to learn to play. Experienced

musicians are rewarded with an intuitive interface.

There are many isomorphic keyboards out there, from concertinas,

accordions, and "jammers" (which use the wicki-hayden layout) to

harmonic-table keyboards and more. You can have them all in one

application, and more besides.

Hexagonal isomorphic keyboards are defined by the harmonic

relationship between the keys. You can define the relationship in two

directions, say a major third and a minor third, and the third

direction is the difference of these two intervals (in this case, a

semitone).

Musix comes with a set of built-in layouts which use different

harmonic relationships between the notes. Each layout has its own

advantages and disadvantages. For example, the harmonic table layout

allows you to play a major or minor chord with one finger, by

touching at the intersection of any three hexagons. The Wicki-Hayden

layout puts all the white keys together. Try them all and find one

that works for you.

Musix has six real-time FM-synthesized instrument sounds. No wavetables

here. Each note sound is synthesized on-the-fly, meaning that you get

the full richness of bass and brightness of treble that the ipad

speaker or your headphones can generate.

You can change the size of the keys to fit your fingers and your

dexterity - start practicing with epic-sized keys and as you get

better you can make the keys smaller to give you more notes on the

screen. Keyboard layouts are fully customizable - create your own

isomorphic keyboard centred on any note. Remove the note labels for a

clean look.

4/5 stars

what a huge improvement

:
last i played it before the update, latency was much higher. i will probably play it through sound effects when recording with it, but it definitely seems much more useful now!

3/5 stars

Fascinating

:
Fascinating as an instrument and a puzzle both! I like it.
I'd give it more stars if it had better sounds or would use coremidi so i could use it as a control surface for my synths. Wireless midi is too slow for performance. I would buy this app but would also hope for improvements. Nice so far.
