How does the ScaleTwister work?


Each scale is identified by the number of notes and the distance (interval) between each note. This definition is unchanged when transposed.

Intervals are depicted with the following letters:
W = Whole Step

H = Half Step

T = Three Half Steps

The scales are located on a rotatable disc and are assignable to all keys listed on the background.

Example:

C-Major (yellow), Intervals (red).

interval_dur


The C-Major scale transposed to E-Major, the „interval-definition“ remains unchanged.

interval_moll
