Awesome stuff.  I used it straight away on a composition I was looking to build a bit. This software presented so many not so common suggestions to explore, I felt confident I was auditioning ideas outside my same old development repertoire
George Zajacek

With SLModes, it only takes a couple of minutes before you find ideas for chord progressions you wouldn’t otherwise have on your own.

▸ For each mode, it shows its chords (this is huge!) and their notes;

▸ For each mode, a list of its guitar fretboard shape and piano notes. You can also open the extended freboard mode, to access the notes of the mode across the entire guitar fretboard.

▸ It provides instant feedback on how a mode sounds by playing it over a selected chord.

▸ 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 (this is a new way of thinking when writing chord progressions). 

Composer Mode, for you to write down you chord progressions, and play them in a loop.
