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:

  1. Connect Sundog to your DAW.
  2. Choose a scale and a basenote. C Major for example sounds quite happy, E Natural Minor rather sad.
  3. Find chord progressions by clicking chord buttons with your mouse.
  4. 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.

Features:

  • Find all fitting triads and four note chords for a given scale.
  • Create own chord collections and trigger them with one finger.
  • Export standard MIDI files - also via drag and drop.
  • Work with different song parts to test progressions, bridges, and variations.
  • Over 500 chord progressions + progression search engine included.

  • Built-in Scale Finder: Enter some notes that you already know and let Sundog search scales for you.

  • Convert MIDI note input (white keys) to scale notes and chords.
  • Over 300 scales + 150 patterns available out of the box.
  • Create harmonic melodies and arpeggios easily.
  • Draw melodies with your mouse or use the built-in step sequencer.
  • Experiment with new scales and basenotes.
  • Cure writer's block by experimenting with new harmonies.
  • Output: Standard MIDI note data.
  • Input: MIDI notes, computer keys, mouse.
  • Runs on Windows 7 and up, Mac OS X 10.7 (64-bit) and up.
  • Buy once, get updates forever.

The video will show you the basic concepts and demonstrates how you can write a complete verse within seven minutes.

Is WIndows XP completely not usable, . .. or just not totally supported or reliable ?

Windows XP is not supported anymore - but probably it will work. Just give the demo a try and test it with your system.

I just picked this up, and I'm very excited about it. If I dig it, I'll write a user review.

A decently-written review. One of the features I am still hoping to see in a future release is a more sophisticated pattern browser that organizes the step patterns into more discrete groupings; tagging would be nice, too. Another nice feature to see in a future release would be a facility to convert back and forth between step patterns and pattern-trigger patterns (why? because only step patterns allow customizable velocities).

Thanks, Bro (or Sis),
I demoed this for a few weeks and worked hard on providing some useful comments. I see your points and suggest you submit these requests to the developer. He's been very responsive when I contacted him with my feature requests. Mostly, I would like to have a simple on-board piano sound (or a selection of instruments) to make opening and syncing to a DAW optional. This would make it faster and easier to get an idea down.

I previously communicated my feature requests to Hauke, so he is aware of them. If other folks were to express interest in the same features I have requested, he might be more apt to look into developing them. Regarding having on-board instrument sounds, Windows users have the option of using the CoolSoft Virtual MIDI Synth with Sundog. I am not sure if there is something analogous out there for Mac users.

3 May 2016 at 7:53amhauke

Yes, I tend to concentrate on those features first that have been requested more often than other features. There are quite a few interesting things that I plan to incorporate in future updates :).

All the best, .

Hauke.

Sounds good. I look forward to every new release of Sundog. It never disappoints.

A feature I really like are the chord mods: very inspiring..
