Software Writes Your Songs For You releases Sundog Scale Studio for Windows      19/02/14

Feeling short of inspiration? You could take a look at Sundog Scale Studio - Windows XP software designed to get rid of writer's block once and for all.

Sundog Scale Studio is described as a MIDI chords and melodies laboratory that lets you experiment with new scales, harmonies, and melodies easily. A spokesperson told us, "Use Sundog to play around with chords and basenotes like a breeze. Go from calm, smooth, chill out styles to energetic upbeat tunes in a matter of seconds. Promised."

Here's's description of how it works:

Sundog is designed to work with all major DAWs. All note output happens via MIDI (so you may also call it a MIDI performer, or MIDI sequencer). As long as you set up a virtual MIDI cable between Sundog and your DAW you are ready to go.

The first thing you do is choosing a scale and a basenote. Take C Major for example if you want to compose a happy song, or E Minor if you write a sad ballad. Just choose a scale and play some notes. You will quickly get a feeling for the mood of the scale.

In a second step you switch over to a special chords view. You can listen to chords by just clicking buttons - and they will all fit your chosen scale! Click on dark buttons for strong, commonly used chords or on light buttons if you want to experiment a bit.

Once you have found some nice chords you can create a chord progression. This will be the harmonic base of your song.

Back in the main view the real magic starts. You can use your MIDI keyboard, computer keyboard, or your mouse to create new melodies. All your input can either be mapped to scale notes - great for leads! - or to the current chord notes.

This way your melodies will always sound harmonic! Now if you go back to the chords view and change some chords all your melodies will get updated at once.
