Custom scales are defined in the same spirit as custom chords. You only define a sequence of intervals and not a sequence of notes. The app will then generate when needed the 12 corresponding scales (one for each tonic).

In order to create a custom scale, go to the chord selection screen, select “Custom”, and then tap the “Add” button .

Custom scale mode selection
Custom scales can be reached via the dropdown menu.
Custom scale edition
Only intervals are relevant. It starts here with a C, but you can swipe the notes to preview it with other tonics.
Custom scale
Your custom scale.
Custom scale fingerings
You can even compute its fingerings.

Your custom scales will be used as any other scale in the app. They will appear in reverse searches or when harmonizing chords, and you will be able to compute their fingerings for example.
