Fortamento has announced an update to its music idea generator app for iOS.


Get instant musical ideas at a push of a button with Fortamento – a simple and effective music idea creator, capable of generating 4 bars of chord progression and melody, with the option to edit the idea and save the result.

To make life easier, there’s an option to export the tunes as MIDI files for further work in your favorite Digital Audio Workstation software or MIDI sequencer.

Fortamento is a great addition to the workflow of musicians, songwriters and producers to overcome the occasional writer’s block.

Changes in Fortamento v1.2

  • Chords can now be manually changed by tapping on the chord.
  • Saved tunes can be brought back to editing.
  • Updated Chords and Instruments sounds.
  • Option to mute Chords, Melody or both – there is now an “Off” option for Chords and Melody instruments.
  • Shake to go back to previously generated idea – for these accidental extra taps after you hear a good idea.
  • MIDI Output (beta) – currently supports internal and Bluetooth MIDI.
  • Other minor algorithm improvements and bug fixes.

Fortamento is available for purchsae from the App Store for $4.99 USD.
