Editor's review

Musical Palette program is a tool for the creation of melodies. The program is based on composition theory and the theory of harmony. The strong theoretical base makes the melody composing process easier. It supports you with different methods for motive development such as variation; repetition; inversion; sequence, etc.

Pros: This application helps create melodies and is based on the theory of composition and harmony. It helps you in the creation of your original melodies and provides you with a set of related features to make the process easier. The program knows the most commonly used triads and seventh chords of the key. The software also contains three standard elements; chords, bass and melody. You can place every chord with different arrangement and the program also suggests the chords suitable for the current position. The program also provides you with a demo script to help you so that you can know how to use the program and what to do. The files that you have created can be exported to .mid format files. The program represents the chords in a four-voice form. Any chord has many variants of an arrangement. The chord notes can be arranged adjacently (tight arrangement) or remotely (wide arrangement). The user can choose both the type of the chord and the arrangement of the chord. Rules for functional motion are built in so that at each step suitable chords are suggested by the application. The melody created can be exported to midi files. This has three tracks melody, chords and bass. This set can be used by a midi sequencer or style arranger that can create a complete tune.

Cons: No noticeable problems.

Overall: Nice set of features in the application. It is easy to use if you know the basis of creating melodies. This is definitely a 4 star package.

Publisher's description

Musical Palette program is a tool for the creation of melodies. The program is based on composition theory and the theory of harmony. The strong theoretical base makes the melody composing process easier. The basic features are:
1. The program implements twelve methods of motive development. Some of them are listed here: variation; inversion; repetition; sequence and so on.
2. The program knows the most commonly used triads and seventh chords of the key. The program represents the chords in a four-voice form. Any chord has many variants of an arrangement. For example: any chord note can be placed in the first position of the arrangement. The chord notes can be arranged adjacently (tight arrangement) or remotely (wide arrangement). The user can choose both the type of the chord and the arrangement of the chord.
3. The program understands the logic of the functional motion. That is, the program knows the rules, which describe how and in what sequence the chords appear in the chord progression. On each step, the program suggests only those chords, which are suitable for the current position in the chord progression.
4. The program understands the 'voice-leading' rules. The rules define how one chord notes transform to another chord notes. The chord progressions, where these rules are used, sound very harmonious.
5. The program contains demo-scripts, which show how to use the program.
6. The program has an option that exports the melody to a midi (*.mid) file. The exported file consists of three tracks: melody, chords, bass. You can import this file to any midi sequencer or style arranger to create a complete tune.
