musagi!

--- | | --- | **musagi ** | | This is a fairly large and sophisticated music editor and synthesizer which I started working on in April 2006. It was originally intended as a tool for helping my brother learn composing, and to satiate my need to write a good piece of music software. As it stands now it's very useful and dare I say intuitive. Both my brother and I use it very frequently. All the music for my latest projects were made in musagi, and I've included a few of the songs as examples in the zip file. There are also mp3 samples available at the bottom of this page. Download it and have a try if you're interested. Be sure to read the included HTML documentation and study the demo songs. This is still technically a non-public version, but I'm putting up a

  • Impro-Visor

  • Impro-Visor (short for “Improvisation Advisor”) is a music notation program designed to help jazz musicians compose and hear solos similar to ones that might be improvised. The objective is to improve understanding of solo construction and tune chord changes. There are other, secondary, things it can do, such as improvise on its own. It has also been used for transcription. Because rhythm-section (e.g. piano, bass, drums) accompaniment is automatically generated from chords, Impro-Visor can be used as a play-along device. Now having a wider array of accompaniment styles, its use is not limited to jazz. »
