Musical settings


Notes names

Defines how notes are labeled in the app.
Default value: Standard: C, D, E, F, G, A, B

Accidental when undecided

If you transpose by semitones and land on the C major or A minor key, the app can’t decide by itself which accidental should be used if needed. In these rare cases, the app will fallback to this accidental. Otherwise, the context should provide enough information to decide.
Default value: ♯

Use enharmonics equivalents

If enabled, B♯, C♭, E♯, F♭, and double accidented will be represented as their simpler enharmonic counterpart, that is: B♯ → C, C♭ → B, E♯ → F, F♭ → E, D♭♭ → C, etc.
Default value: No


Default instrument

This instrument is used by default when creating or viewing a song. If a voice with the same instrument is found in the song, it will be automatically selected. Otherwise, a dynamic voice will be created. This dynamic voice is not stored in the song.
Default value: Guitar (Standard)

Use left-handed instrument

If enabled, the app will show left-handed diagrams for guitar-like instruments. This setting does not affect pianos.
Default value: No

Default value: Piano

Default guitar parameters

When the current voice’s instrument is a guitar-like instrument, the app will use these parameters to compute chord fingerings.
