About BlueBassScales

With the BlueScalesTrainer for guitar it made sense to implement this also for the bassists as the BlueBassScales app. Shouldn't be that heavy, there are only 2 strings less. But then I thought of the 5-string fans and the whole thing got a bit more complex.

But now the app for bass players is also ready. With the same functions as the BlueScalesTrainer, but lot more playalong songs from easy to difficult with a bass mutable. Here are the main points I wanted to achieve:

* The scales should be displayed while playing, so it needs a music audio player
* New songs should be analyzed to show you the key of a song
* The scales should then be displayed individually in large size and as an overview, matching the selected song
* Overview and single view of scale patterns should be switched by foot pedal
* A fretboard view provides a complete overview and should also be able to hide notes.
* Both Bass types 4/5-String and a lot more Playalong loops.

Thanks to my app BlueScalesTrainer I already had the base for most of the things, only the scales for 5-string Bass needs to be added. I also took over the effect section, so that you can use the 7 audio effects in the BlueBassScales as well.
Here are the extensive functions that I have integrated in the BlueBassScales app and everything without subscription, InApp Purchase or advertising:

- The main Scales are included: Major, Minor, Pentatonic Major, Pentatonic Minor, Blues Major and Blues Minor
- In total 360 scales for your training target to master your guitar solos
- Per scale type each of the 12 keys and their 5 patterns according to the CAGED system could be selected
- Scale view in 3 modes: Pattern single, Summary and Zoom view
- New added large fretboard view, where either root notes, chord notes or all notes of the scale are displayed
- Switchable display of the notes or note position in the scale
- The player can also be controlled via Bluetooth from PagerTurner foot pedals
- Alternative scale views can be switched via foot pedal
- The pitch can be adjusted without changing the speed
- Also the speed is adjustable without changing the pitch
- Free configurable effects (reverb, delay, flanger, equalizer, filter) to improve the sound
- All songs in your iTunes library can be used
- Songs are analyzed for the key, so that the matching scale will be selected automatically
- The BPM will also be analyzed and effects Delay/Flanger will be set to this BPM
- In order to sort your session better, there is a playlist management with 16 playlists
- Especially for practicing difficult passages, the A->B Play mode is optimal
- For the direct start 40 loop songs of different styles already available
- Backup and restore for all playlists including copying to Dropbox and iCloud
- Switching the scales for 4-string and 5-string bass
