Please note: this software is currently available for Windows only.


Introduction:

Unleash the hidden power of the scales and modes in your music with SLModes.

Are you looking to add more creativity to your chord progressions? Are you feeling adventurous enough to blur the line between scales and their modes?

Then keep reading.

Most people who write music pick a key (let’s say C major) and restrict themselves to the chords of that key (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, colourful, 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.
