Usually, a song has an underlying sequence of chords - a chord progression. It may start with A minor, moves to E minor, maybe ends with a C major chord. Finding these progression is mainly limited by your knowledge about what chords exists, how to build them and how they work together, and of course your time to iterate and arrange chords to find the one progression that sounds great.

Even worse for those who don't play an instrument very well. You are stuck with your mouse, a sequencer, some notes on what notes which chord is and long nights of trying. Sometimes it can take forever and still you end up with something that sounds nice but at the same time is not very special.

MelodyBuilder tries to maybe not solve these issues but provide an interface that tackles several issues:

  1. Making it faster to find good chord progressions.
  2. Let you find more interesting and more complex chord progressions.
  3. Allows musicians that do not know much about music theory to write chord progressions, arpeggios, melodies and more.

In MelodyBuilder you are not arranging notes, you are arranging chords and combine them with patterns - template that describe how to play any chord. That makes them highly re-usable, because you do not come in contact with notes you can't do many mistakes, and due to the drag & drop interface you can try out chord progressions and melodies much faster:

  • Over 50 scale types.
  • Over 200 chord types.
  • Try out chord progression by dragging and dropping chords in a sequencer.
  • Create arpeggios and melodies without having to think about what notes are actually played.
  • Create more complex patterns that extend the note material of the chords in your progression and still you don't have to think about what notes are played.
  • Create real melodies, not only chord arpeggios, by "drawing" simple patterns.
  • Export your MelodyBuilder creations to MIDI files to use them in your favourite sequencer like FruityLoops, Cubase or Logic.

Why making it complicated when you can focus on the creative part instead?

Lets see how long this will last until deleted like the first review posted from someone else.

It is really a pity, the ideas that goes into the program, the easiness of handling, could be a really nice program. The three windows for songstructure, pattern editing and chord progressions are great. Simple midi-export, a lot of not explained (maybe only planned ???) things under the hoot (for example VST support), but:

NO SUPPORT AT ALL.

NO USER GUIDE.

NO CHANCE TO REBUILD DEFAULT STATUS OF PROGRAM.

Even for bugs that stop the program from being useable at all. I just lost some important windows (patterns, preset patterns), no chance to restore. No view menue, even uninstalling, cleaning registry and reinstall wont help.

Have asked two questions via contact formular a week ago, before buying: no anwer.

Then cause of the really nice intentions decided to buy.the same.

Asked in two mails few days ago with general questions (user guide etc.): no answer.

Yesterday windows gone, tried to reinstall, searched for possible causes, three mails with screens etc: NOTHING.

And so my conclusion: NO it is not "been a pleasure doing business with you!" like they said in the only mail I ever get with the download link (of course automatically generated.....)
