smartChord V8.21

Scale name:
▫ Determines the scale for a song or a chord progression
▫ Determines the scale also for an arbitrary set of chords or notes
▫ The set of chords can be entered as text or picked from the chord dictionary
▫ The notes can be entered either on the fretboard or on the piano
▫ If the scale cannot be determined unambiguously, the resulting list shows you:
◾ which scales are possible
◾ which notes are missing
◾ which notes do not belong to the scale
▶ Our video explains the Key Identifier, but the ‘Scale name’ works the same way: https://youtu.be/McveJtbFV2E
