Unleash the power of the scales and modes in your music with SLModes.
A lot of today's music is based on the same old chord progressions. Ever heard of the I-V-vi-IV chord progression used in about a billion of songs?
Maybe you want to add more creativity to your chord progressions? Try new combinations of chords?
If that's the case, take time to explore this cool approach to chord progressions...
See... most people write music and tend to pick a key (let's say C major) and restrict themselves to the chords of that key (in this case, C Dm Em F G Am Bº).
But here's a new way of thinking about chord progressions: don't remain in the same key.
Did you know that jumping from scales that share notes in common can sound pretty fascinating, colorful, exotic or mysterious?
If you ever heard about terms such as pitch axis theory and modal modulation, this is what they were talking about.
SLModes is a tool to help music writers to take full advantage of these concepts.
SLModes is a standalone software for Windows.
The main features are:
1.) It shows a list of all of the modes of the Major, Melodic Minor and Harmonic Minor scales.
2.) For each mode, it shows its associated chords.
3.) It provides instant feedback on how a mode sounds by playing it over a selected chord.
4.) It creates a list of all matching modes and their corresponding chords based on how many notes in common they have with the original mode you've selected.
