App Description

About IOS 8 Compatibility: We are working on an exhiting update to bring full support for IOS 8 and iPhone 6 and 6 plus. In the meantime, if your tab bar disappears just rotate the device to bring it back.

As seen on Apple's iPad TV commercial, Gizmodo, CNet, TUAW, Smoking Apples and the Tapworthy book! Nota is a set of indispensable tools for musicians at any level. It has a piano chord and scale browser, a piano and staff note locator, a note quiz and a reference library with over 100 symbols. Make sure you also check out Nota for the iPad.

For beginners, Nota's tools covers the basics of music notation with a 4 octave piano that displays the notes on a staff, a full screen landscape mode piano for practicing and an interactive notes quiz to test your knowledge of notes.

For advanced users, the scales browser has a comprehensive list of common and exotic scales. Nota will show the scale, play it and display the notes, intervals and half-steps. The chords browser makes it easy to find a chord and play it on any key or invert it. You can now set the notation to strict or simplified and also set the root to sharp or flat. You can also consult the Circle of Fifths in the Reference section which has the most comprehensive reference of music notation on the iPad.
