I’ve been tweeting it, but I have to officially blog it too…
My Android Melody Generator app is now available on the Android market! I still need to redesign the website for it, melodygenerator.com and create some more graphics, but that will have to wait a day or two. Here’s my description:
Easily generate short tonal melodies for your songs or compositions.
Melody Generator for Android uses a new theory of melody to automatically generate melodies with the tap of a finger. Melody Generator can provide quick and easy assistance to composers and songwriters who need quick melody ideas, or to any music lover who just wants to play around. The current version of Melody Generator (Version 1) includes the following features:
– 8 bar melodies
– Time signatures: 4/4, 3/4, 2/4, 6/8
– Random chord progressions
– Random or custom key signatures (A, Bb, B, C, Db, D)
– Random or custom tempos
– Use of whole notes, half note, quarter notes, 8th notes, and 16th notes
The Melody Generator saves melodies as short MIDI files to your SD card, and allows you to browse through and listen to them after they are generated. Check out the website for sample output. Of course, more features are in the works!
