Hexagonal keyboard layout with:
- Pitch layed out horizontally, the different scales vertically.
- All basic chords on one line from the root note, going to the right.
- Major chords starting on the rows with uppercase notes: major, maj7, 7/9/11/13 etc.
- Minor chords starting on the rows with lowercase notes; minor, m7, m7/9/11/13 etc.
- sus2 and sus4 variants above and below the third.
- All the notes from a major scale conveniently together.
- Enough room on an iPad screen for 3.5 octaves, with comfortably sized keys.
- This sequence of chords can be played by moving one finger one key up repeatedly:
(The circle of fifths alternating with the relative minors.)
- Works well with other tonal systems: 5-ET, 7-ET, 9-ET, 12-ET, 19-ET, 24-ET,
31-ET, 53-ET, 72-ET, Just Intonation
- Playable with mouse and, even better, also with multi-touch!
Try dragging horizontally to play like a harp.
- Now also playable with the AXiS-49 controller in selfless mode.
(On my Mac the midi support seems to be unstable in Chrome,
but it works fine in Safari.)
It's basically a mix between C-thru-music's axis controllers and Audanika's SoundPrism.
I would love to have an iPad midi controller app with this layout!
