Sundog Scale Studio by feelyoursound.com is a composition tool for electronic musicians that want to create great songs faster. The standalone software connects to other DAWs and hardware via MIDI and sends note commands to trigger chords and melodies.
The main focus of Sundog lies on writing harmonic songs from scratch without having to worry too much about music theory.
Four basic steps are needed to get started:
- Connect Sundog to your DAW.
- Choose a scale and a basenote. C Major for example sounds quite happy, E Natural Minor rather sad.
- Find chord progressions by clicking chord buttons with your mouse.
- Trigger rhythmic note patterns with your mouse, computer keyboard, or MIDI keyboard. All notes will harmoniously match your chosen chords and/or the scale.
These four steps make it easy to create interesting songs within minutes. Over 300 scales are available out of the box to experiment with new moods and harmonies easily.
