The Oud Tutor
The Oud Tutor supports middle-eastern music (a.k.a. "Arab-Music" and "Arabic Music") via providing 1/4 tones and allowing the definition and selection of “maqams”. The selected “maqam” is reflected visually onto the oud, by indicating the “maqam” notes and their fingering positions on the virtual oud.
When playing the sample melodies that come with The Oud Tutor, the maqam of the played melody is reflected onto the oud. If the music piece involves maqam changes (modulation), the changes are shown in real-time.
In addition to playing music files, The Oud Tutor also allows you to play the oud yourself using the mouse or the keyboard. The Oud Tutor provides full microtone capability, with a user-controlled option to approximate microtones smaller than quarter notes to the nearest 1/4 note.
