Producers starting out will find this a fantastic learning tool that will increase workflow. Seasoned producers may benefit from the sketchpad nature of this tool and come up with parts that they might not have come up with elsewhere. Lynda Arnold, AskAudio Magazine
I think it is a very fair price for what you get. Having the ability to quickly and easily create chord progression, melodies and bass lines is well worth the price. It gets my full recommendation. Mitch Slayton, AudioNewsRoom
Even seasoned professionals can save time and energy. Conclusion: Sundog is a creative tool that belongs on every studio computer. The price is more than fair, so Sundog gets our full recommendation. Keys
Every song needs a good harmonic base. Once you have the chords going, set up a bassline and added some nice background melodies you surely know whether it's going to be great - or just meeeh.
But here's the catch...
Finding that song core is like digging for gold. It's a lot of work and oftentimes needlessly repetitive and annoying. Does the following sound familiar to you?
Wouldn't it be great if you could skip the stuff that holds you back to experiment more? I know for sure that this was true for me. This is why I sat down to write a software that could help me reduce the friction - and that boosted my songwriting in more ways than I thought was possible.
Sundog is designed to work with all major DAWs. All note output happens via MIDI. As long as you set up a virtual MIDI cable between Sundog and your DAW you are ready to go.
But even without a virtual MIDI cable you can create new songs and phrases, as Sundog contains an own factory soundset with over 100 instruments. And it can export MIDI files directly to other programs.
The first thing you do is choosing a scale and a basenote. Take C Major for example if you want to compose a happy song, or E Minor if you write a sad ballad. Just choose a scale and play some notes. You will quickly get a feeling for the mood of the scale.
In a second step you switch over to a special chords view. You can listen to chords by just clicking buttons - and they will all fit your chosen scale!
Once you have found some nice chords you can create a chord progression. This will be the harmonic base of your song.
Back in the main view the real magic starts. You can use your mouse, your MIDI keyboard, or your computer keyboard to create new melodies. All your input can either be mapped to scale notes - great for leads! - or to the current chord notes.
This way your melodies will always sound harmonic! Now if you go back to the chords view and change some chords all your melodies will get updated at once.
I'm about to test Sundog and think that the program is outstandig. I tested a bunch of chord- and song-tools, and for me Sundog is top class (I work with chords intuitively most of the time). Rainer S.
Just passing by to say a big thank you. I has a wonderfull evening yesterday. I didn't had so much fun since years with a music software. Benoit R.
I'm just a hobbyist with permanent lack of free time for creating music, so I hope it increase my "productivity :-). I also think that it can give me some basic knowledge about harmony. Thank you and best regards. Jacek S.
This has been a huge help in getting me to that next level in music production. I always had the hardest time with theory but this has really opened my eyes to it and with sound dog, I have already made some proper sounding chord progressions. Thank you so much! RUI
Sundog is one of the best tools for creative composing. It provides an excellent base for creating new song ideas while remaining very easy to use. The interface is very intuitive and contains a lot of presets and freely adjustable options. Sundog is not only a joy to use, but also a guarantee for great results. Thanks a lot for this amazing music tool! DJ GerryMK/Producer
Sundog has played a huge part of my success in turning around a massive amount of work in a very short time. It is not only easy to create chords progressions, bass lines and melodies, it is educational and fun as well. Having fun while working, who doesn't love that. Sundog, you are the most musical software I know. Bjarke
I love Sundog Song Studio! Thank you for creating such a great and creative tool!! Troy C.
Your tools have helped increase my workflow soo much, so I just wanted to say thank you for all you do. James S.
Sundog makes the process of writing fun for me again. This means a lot to me, especially during this depressing time of the pandemic. Thanks so much for creating it. Please keep up the great work. Norsez
Just wanted to say that i am having incredible fun with both Sundog Studio and now also Chordpotion, these 2 are really such great Composing tools! I wanna thank you for all you effort and hard work you have put in these tools. Rob
Holy Cow man you are a genius!I don't know how the rest of what you have created works (as far as software is concerned) works. But the Sundog midisoftware has to be the most awesome piece of software I have ever used for inspiration and songwriting. Stan
This is such an amazing piece of software. Every time I use this tool, I’m impressed by how well it’s done. [...] Thanks for continuing to make this incredible software even better. [...] Hats off to you for making the best song writing tool out there. Greg W. on YouTube
I finally purchased Sundog the other day after having played around with the demo for the longest time. It's a wonderful piece of software. I'm already making cool stuff using Sundog, and the workflow makes it quite easy to experiment and build out sketches of entire tracks. Powerful app! Thanks so much for making it. Luke R.
I've been pleasantly surprised by functionality of Sundog Studio's ability to help out people like me who are starting to learn the basics of music production -- It's a nice change of pace to be able to map several elements of music theory without having too much prior knowledge. It really has been inspiring to be able to use the software for more freedom and allow the creative workflow to start happening naturally.
I have been working with Sundog Song Studio for 2 years now. And have to say if I didn't have Sundog Song then I could never have made a track with strong chords, melodies, bassline etc. Thank you very much for the invention. Jeffrey
Sundog really is a pleasure to use. It simply works, and provides great usability without sacrificing deeper functionality. You are the man ! Keep up the good work. Jonathan A.
I wanted to share few words, as I truly enjoy Sundog Song Studio! Buying it was one of the best decision I've made regarding to my production learning path. Sundog made my workflow way quicker, but more importantly it helped me to understand basics of music theory. For me, Sundog is a very powerful machine, I use it on daily basis since I bought it. I do not waste time anymore over thinking about "is my chord progression musically correct?" etc. Jan S.
Thank you for your time and patience. I just can't believe how thoroughly you designed Sundog and how I overlooked how powerful it really is if one takes the time to master it.. I decided that it's worth it for me to invest my time into making a personal library of my own, (inspired by one of my favorite artists Mike Perry) in addition to what you've included which is great also. Thanks again for creating Sundog. Stephen
I bought and downloaded MelodicFlow a week or two ago and absolutely loved it - what it does is something I've been looking for for a long time and it does it well. Then I got looking at Sundog and that really completes the suite for me. I have (much!) more expensive tools that do the same sort of thing, but somehow Sundog keeps it simple, fluid and surfaces creativity without lots of complicated interfaces and options that I don't need, but with plenty of patterns and progressions at my fingertips. Ian E.
First things first - I really must thank and congratulate you for making such an excellent piece of software. I've bought a few scale tools over the years, but they've never felt like a good fit. I stumbled across Sundog after reading about it in the youtube comments for another program, tried the demo, purchased it pretty much straight away, and continued to be more and more impressed by what is possible with Sundog. Paul C.
