How to use SONGER 3
Language Selection
When starting the app, either for the first time or after closing, tap the flag that corresponds to the language in which you wish to view the app. Currently, English and Japanese are supported. Once loaded, the language cannot be changed unless you fully close and reopen the app.
THE MAIN INTERFACE
The main interface of SONGER 3 contains 6 buttons and 6 pads. These function in the following way:
- Metronome (top-left) - tap this to turn on or off the metronome/click.
- Melody (top-right) - tap this to hear a single note from the current key. Tap this multiple times to create melodies. Try tapping or holding the chord pads (see below) with one finger while tapping the melody button with another to create a melody and accompaniment.
THE RANDOMISERS
- Tempo randomiser - tap this button to change the tempo to a random value between 60 - 150.
- Key randomiser - tap this button to change the key to another random key.
- Theme randomiser - tap this button to reveal a new random theme from a pool of 50 themes.
- Lyric randomiser - tap this button to reveal a new random lyric from a pool of 200 lyrics.
THE CHORD PADS
There are 6 chord pads. Each one displays the chord symbol and its name. Tap a chord pad to hear the chord once. Press and hold a chord pad to hear that chord repeated at quarter note (crotchet) intervals.
- Chord pad I - this will play the 1st (I) chord of the key; e.g. in C major, this would be a C major chord.
- Chord pad II/VII - if the current key is major, this will play the 2nd (II) chord of the key; e.g. in C major, this would be a D minor chord. However, if the current key is minor, this will play the 7th (VII) chord of the key; e.g. in A minor, this would be a G major chord.
- Chord pad III - this will play the 3rd (III) chord of the key; e.g. in C major, this would be an E minor chord.
- Chord pad IV - this will play the 4th (IV) chord of the key; e.g. in C major, this would be an F major chord.
- Chord pad V - this will play the 5th (V) chord of the key; e.g. in C major, this would be a G major chord.
- Chord pad VI - this will play the 6th (VI) chord of the key; e.g. in C major, this would be an A minor chord.
