Add three extra melody voices to your Hookpad projects. Each voice is configurable in the mix tool with its own instrument(s), octave, and volume. Each voice also has its own lyrics.
In addition to being a great songwriting tool, Hookpad+ is a powerful MIDI creation platform. With a single click, Hookpad+ can export the instrument mix to MIDI which can then be dragged into a Digital Audio Workstation (Ableton Live, FL Studio, Logic Pro, GarageBand, ...) for additional production / modification. With intelligent harmony / chord fills, and the ability to independently shift the tonal center of each track, incorporating Hookpad+ into your workflow will enhance your creativity and productivity as a songwriter or producer. Sample MIDI file.
Create a MP3 file of your Hookpad project for easy sharing / distribution.
Export a beautifully engraved score of your song. Sample score.
Export beautifully engraved guitar tablature of your song. Sample guitar tab.
Hookpad+ can save and load directly to/from your computer. This can be useful for many reasons, i.e., emailing the file to a friend for collaboration, having your own backup, etc.
Hookpad+ can help you pick the right chords with Magic Chord. Magic Chord lets you ask Hookpad what it thinks is the best chord to use in a given situation. Hookpad+ will analyze the chords you’ve already written and then look for examples of songs in the Theory Tab library that have used chords similarly to get clues as to what chord might work best next. Then it provides suggestions for you to pick from. Find the right chord in any situation!
Click the record button and start entering your melody in time with the beat. It’s a great way to get your rhythms just the way you want, without having to enter them by hand.
Connect a MIDI instrument and use it to enter notes in your melody. When you play a note on your instrument, Hookpad+ figures out what scale degree to add to your song based on the key you are currently in. When used with the record feature, you can populate Hookpad+ in real time with your MIDI instrument.
Click loop, and click play. This is great for practicing a song on your instrument, or for providing a backing track for jamming, singing a melody, practicing a solo, etc.
As you type, Hookpad+ places each syllable on the note it corresponds to. Use a hyphen for custom syllable separation.
