So you spend days upon days in the studio, writing song after song. However the more you write the harder your brain has to bring out new ideas. Make no mistake, this will happen sooner or later. And when that happens, and you're on a tight deadline, what do you do? Writing music like nothing happens might get the juices flowing a bit more, but what you need is more inspiration. Open your ears and eyes to other genres around the world. Think outside the box for a change.
iChorder is the tool to let you do this. It gives you 5 tools at your disposal to open your minds to new influences:
* Song ideas: This picks genres at random, giving you an idea on your next song, and it lets you search on youtube, soundcloud or google for the different genres so you can hear them out.
* 5th circle: This tool gives you access to an easily overview of the circle of 5ths. It showcases the prime and alternative scale, and also gives you the prime tone, subdominant and dominant for each scale.
* Timeline: This tool helps you create a visual list of your song. What part goes where. Length and other important stuff.
* Rhythms: This tool lets you generate a 4 bar long rhythm. It can be done randomly, and in a set of different complexities from simple to wild, and the rhythm can also be altered should the need ever arise.
iChorder's task is not to write music for you, that is your own responsibility. This is just a tool to help you out with new ideas and inflictions on music. In short: iChorder is writer's block's worst enemy.
