Adobe AIR cross-platform apps: Guitar Focus
Guitar Focus is a beautiful app for tablets to visualize and practice scales on your guitar. Its unique minimalist look provide a distraction-free view of scales on the fretboard. Notes of the chosen scale and key may be seen either as chord/mode intervals (which helps improvise over chords), as the scale’s relative degrees or simply as the scale’s notes. When seen as chord/mode intervals, the notes are styled to show emphasis on the chord tones, so you can easily spot them as sure notes. You can customize which notes get high, medium or low emphasis style. There’s two fretboards so you can practice over chord or scale changes, and there’s a moving and resizable window that let you focus on a small region of the fretboard.
• 3 scales: Diatonic, Harmonic Minor and Melodic Minor;
• Show chord/mode intervals, scale notes or scale degrees;
• Hide the notes on a string and highlight the string (to practice with open strings);
• Choose one of 12 colors as a fretboard’s color theme;
• Normal or compound intervals in modes view (2,4,6 or 9,11,13);
As our first original IP and first game published by iq12, Σ12 (SIGMA12) is based on the original gameplay developed by Christophe Choffel for the “One Game A Month” online contest, under the name 12=12. He’s responsible for the game’s design and artistic direction. Arnaud Gatouillat ported and optimized the game’s code, while Samuel Pott took care of publishing and QA. First a Unity3D prototype, Σ12 (SIGMA12) is developed in ActionScript3 and published with the Adobe AIR framework on multiple platforms, including Windows, MacOS, iOS, Android and probably BlackBerry 10 in the near future. Flare3D is the 3D engine and the Starling framework is used for all the graphical user interface. The Flox framework is the backbone of our statistics and scoring systems.
