For macOS · iPadOS · iOS

The Fonts Chords & Scales are currently (as of January 2024) no longer available for sale and download.
Existing customers will continue to receive support.

In 2024 – with an updated website and a new reseller – there will be new and exciting fonts for chord and scale diagrams available. Stay tuned.

I will switch to another sales platform because Fastspring, my previous sales platform, will charge fees that are not acceptable to me.
Thank you very much for your support and all the best,
