• Piano Motifs chooses a music key from many different scales and an accompaniment from a varied set of accompaniments. Piano Motifs then uses its musical theory algorithms to overlay a melody in the chosen key and accompaniment. Piano Motifs are short, they go from around  16 seconds to around 30 seconds.

Version 3.4 release notes

• Added bpm to the song attributes in the Audition Screen. • Improved the internal repeat sequence algorithm. • Fixed issue in the Program Chord Progression Screen for iOS15. In light mode, the background for the chords in the progression was white. • Fixed issue in picker views with selections that brought up popup windows. When selecting an adjacent row, sometimes a popup window would be brought up incorrectly. • Fixed issue where BPM knob would be unlocked before it was updated when a motif ended. If the user started moving the BPM knob quickly after a motif ended, the app would bring the value back to the original value, causing jumps in the values of the BPM knob.
