AutoTonic is a standalone MIDI note processor that dynamically assigns any musical scale to the white keys of your keyboard. At the same time, the black keys act as functional switches, enabling you to toggle between different scales in real-time. Discover new musical scales effortlessly just by playing on the white keys.

The ultimate real-time note transposer.

AutoTonic is for the computer-based musician what equalizer and compressor are to the mixing engineer – a tool you won't miss again once you've started using it, making your keyboard work like a new instrument.

True Modal Mapping

AutoTonic breaks rules by calculating scales as data sets of modal values, rather than just referring to the static and conventional music theory declarations and norms.

24,576 Scales feasible

That doesn't just sound like a lot – it really is. AutoTonic allows to logically map ANY scale that exists in Western Tonal Music. Yes, that is a first too. (2048 scales x 12 tonics)

Black Keys Key Switching

A patented method allows to use the black keys as function toggle to change mappings in realtime, positioned at the closest possible point to the white keys, right at your fingertips.

Built-in Music Theory Database

AutoTonic includes "a no compromise", fully customizable music theory database with over 500+ pre-declared scale records from all around the world.

Maximum Compatibility

By not being hosted within another software (eg, as a plugin within your DAW) AutoTonic is 100% compatible with any other MIDI gear or DAW etc, without compromises or plugin format resctrictions

Chord Memorizer/Stacking

It also includes one of the most unique chord memorizers around. Based on a 'binary method' you can freely assign any chord pattern of up to 52 intervals.

Linear keyboard playing

AutoTonic reinterprets any existing MIDI keyboard like a new/different controller surface, making it result in a completely futuristic 'instrument' on its own.

Crisp clear user interface

The UI is where AutoTonic really shines (literally). Its semiotically well organized design is result of years of hard work and performance analysis.
