Sun Dog Scale Studio

Hey has anyone ever worked with this program? I sometimes find that just getting Melody or Lead ideas is the breakthrough I need to get my song from idea to completion.

I am thinking about getting this an 40$ is not much of an investment, but I would like to put this out and see if anyone has used it.

I did a search and found nothing with IDMF

You could also spend 40 dollars and get a book that would teach you music theory. Watched the demo. Not sure I would pay 40 dollars for this. Seems like a crutch.

I am working specifically with a piano instructor for this very reason... And in all honesty I would love to someday be like ZEDD and play grand piano live, but as a newer producer, one who has read 100 thousand threads about people needing to find inspiration to move forward... I thought this might be the thing.

I dunno I could be wrong, but some of us have strong tech back and some have strong music back and some have both... I am tech for sure.

Re: Sun Dog Scale Studio

If you are already taking piano lessons I would say this isn't worth the money. At least for myself, something like is seems to pre-determine too much. I don't really pick a key to work in when I set down to the keyboard. I just noodle around until I find either a melody, bassline or chord progression I like then I work the rest out from there.

I don't like the idea of saying "Ok, this song WILL BE A Minor" before I even do anything else--it seems to me this software pretty much forces you to work this way. I just don't feel like that would be very inspirational for me.

I think I'd get more inspiration from going out for a night for the 40's or taking my girl to a nice steak dinner then from this software lol. I will admit I was immediately turned off by the demo video when the developer basically called song writing "annoying". I also don't like the process it suggests...that you would write all of your synth patches before you have any idea what your real musical ideas are. There was just a lot in the demo and on the website that I didn't like.

Music theory freed me from obsessing about the mix down.
