Shoulda Woulda Coulda has released Polychord 2, a music app for the iPad.


Polychord is drums, bass, chords, and accompaniment into one.


Here is what the company had to say: “Press one of the chord circles and your on you’re way to writing a song. Drums and bass follow the chords automatically, but the coolest part is probably the strum keys on the right: simply swipe your finger over the yellow keys (or chrome keys in version 2) to strum a chord.”


Changes in Polychord 2

  • Record and share songs with SoundCloud.
  • New UI made in collaboration with Jonas Eriksson.
  • Palettes, so you can save your settings.
  • Palette f-keys, for switching between palettes.
  • Sine, Sawtooth, Triangle and Square Waves for each instrument. (an ‘analogue simulation’ technique was used for generating the synthesizer waves, which warms them up a bit.)
  • Bitshift features for drums: full control over the reduction of bits / bitrate, allowing you to decimate the sound or add a touch of noise.
  • Basic low-pass filtering, resonance for each instrument.
  • Tremolo Depth controls.
  • Scale mode for the strum keys: rather than the strum keys playing the notes of the current chord, you can set them to other scales.
  • Arpeggiator based on time-signatures. Control over the speed and count of the arpeggiator — allows you to mix a different time signature over the beat. Arpeggiator now has the same synth controls as the other instruments.
  • The UI now highlights the last chord you pressed, rather than always highlighting the root-note.
  • Octave control for every instrument.
  • Precise BPM control, with text input.
  • A global on/off switch for Auto Accompany.
  • File manager for renaming/deleting/loading palettes, songs, etc.
  • Pitch bending on strum keys (sends out MIDI too).
  • Skins panel lets you switch back to the classic color scheme.

Polychord 2 is available to purchase for $9.99 USD.
