Tuning

The possibility of selecting an instrument and alternative tuning is a really cool feature. When selecting an alternative tuning the application will compute every possible voicing for that particular tuning. Why not experiment and learn all voicings in DADGAD tuning? ;)

Notation

There is a option in the setting menu where notation can be changed between note name, finger position, interval, degree or midi id. When selecting finger position the numbering is as follows:

  • 1 - Index finger
  • 2 - Middle finger
  • 3 - Ring finger
  • 4 - Little/Pinky finger

By setting parameters sush as "allow opens strings", you unbind or restrict the amount of possible voicings the algorithm will allow when computing.
