Melody Pro is going to be the most powerful, versatile music notation app on the Apple App Store. The iPad app will be a tool for musicians to help them fully utilize their musical abilities. The app is packed with amazing features, but these are a few worth highlighting:
• Instant notation - Melody Pro features a high-quality virtual piano seated directly under a blank sheet music page. As you play a tune on the piano, the music notation instantly appears on the previously blank sheet music page as you play along. If you prefer dragging-and-dropping the music notes onto the page, that is an option as well! You are able to edit, save and send any sheet music in which you have created. You can also play back the music that you have created in Melody Pro.
Here is a simple demo video of the piano in action:
• Sheet Music Importation: Many musicians have folders full of self-written, or purchased sheet music. Many musicians also download sheet music online. Melody Pro will import and store all of your sheet music, allowing you to store your entire collection in a very neat and organized manner, right there on your iPad:
• Instrument Tuner: Melody Pro includes an extremely powerful tuner used to tune your instrument. Simply hold the iPad close to your instrument, play the note, and the tuner will tell you exactly which note you are playing. This is a highly accurate and easy-to-use tuner that can be used to tune any instrument. See it in action in the picture below:
• Metronome: A lot of musicians utilize metronomes, especially those taking any sort of music class. Melody Pro includes a powerful-yet-simple metronome that you can use at will. Check out the metronome in action in the video below:
What Makes Melody Pro Unique? Since the launch of the App Store, we have been looking for a reliable music notation app. We have yet to find any that live up to our standards. A few have come close, but they only have a small fraction of the tools we use on a daily basis. We want to create an amazing app for musicians that includes all the tools they could possibly need, an app that will satisfy all needs. And we are creating exactly that.
Why Kickstarter?: Melody Pro, like any other project or app, is always best when the community is involved. Not only can you help this app come to life financially, but you can help us with this project as a whole. We value feedback from fellow musicians regarding what they would like to see in the app. Kickstarter not only greatly helps us to finance the app, but helps us to see what the community wants to see in this app.
Where The Money Goes: All of the money raised will go directly to completing development of this app. We have mockups and prototypes of the app completed, now we are ready to get finish development. This includes the design, coding and promotion to get this app into the hands of musicians all across the world.
Timeline: We are working night and day on making the app come to life. Rather than releasing a "good enough" version, we want the app to be absolutely amazing right when it hits the App Store. The projected release date for Melody Pro will be late December of 2013, or early January 2014.
What About Support? Ensuring that our customers are 100% happy with the app is a top priority. We are available by phone or by email everyday to answer and technical support or how-to questions.
Risks and challenges
