Melody Pro offers users two different ways to create sheet music on their mobile devices. One option is to drag-and-drop the musical notation on to the blank sheet music page shown on the screen. Users can select a variety of note values including whole notes, half notes, quarter notes, eighth notes, and sixteenth notes. There is also a choice of treble or bass clefs.
Users also have the option to play a virtual piano keyboard that instantly notates the music and its value being performed on the screen. Compositions can be immediately played back, saved for later, and emailed. Notes can easily be deleted by tapping the back arrow button.
Sheet music that is created can be saved in a collections folder that can be accessed by tapping the button with a folder icon on it. From the Sheet Music Collections folder, users can import additional sheet music by utilizing the camera feature of their iOS device. After tapping the camera icon in the top right corner and taking the picture, the image is added to the Sheets directory. All images are organized by timestamp and can be quickly accessed by tapping the image's name. Melody Pro displays the sheet music with the virtual piano underneath so users can play the music from the sheet music image. The image can be easily rotated in any direction by tapping the Rotate button.
Melody Pro also contains an advanced tuner and metronome. Users tap the "Start Listening" button to activate the tuner. The app will report the note being played and the A4 Calibration. When the tuner is ready to analyze another note, it will return to 440.0 Hz calibration. The metronome also possesses simple controls for the user to operate. The tempo value can be increased or decreased by tapping the plus (+) or minus (-) buttons.
"Melody Pro is the only app a musician will ever need," says John Stickle, owner of Nextep LLC. "With the instant notation piano, never again will you forget a tune since you can play it and immediately save it. There is no longer a need to carry folders filled with unorganized sheet music and tuning devices. This app gathers and stores other sheet music that you might have and collects it all in one easy-to-access place." He adds, "Melody Pro is truly one-of-a-kind and the only music notation app that provides so many features specifically suited to the on-the-go musician. Whether you are about to go play with some friends, or are just hanging out and playing your instrument, this is the absolute best, most versatile music app on the Appstore."
