I've just published a copedent / fretboard analysis tool in the Google Play app store. You can add and edit as many copedents as you want. A great way to see what you've got going on or to try out 'what if' scenarios when you're thinking about changing some changers.

The price is $4.99. You can find more details here.

Very cool. I just got a Samsung tablet, and the app works great on it.

I edited the pic to reverse the colors - I prefer a white background.

b0b, can you reverse colors on the app itself or did you do that yourself afterwards? I too find it easier to look at the white background.

I don't see a way to do it in the app. I just hit the "negative" button in the Android's image editor.

I'll look into adding a save option that will reverse the colors in the saved image. This would be the way to go if you wanted to print your copedent.

No iOS. Sorry! I don't have any of the equipment for it.

-- Update
The app has been updated with a few new usability options.
- Added configurable light or dark background
- Added save image with inverted background color
- Added 'editing' option to Copedent viewer. Enable editing from the menu
- The top grid in the Analysis viewer is now interactive allowing you to activate or deactivate changers
- Added home button and back button to the title bar for easier navigation

Thanks to everyone who provided feedback on this thread and one other thread I saw!

Michael, can one save more than one copedent on the app, for example an E9 and a C6? It would be a hassle to change it back and forth, so hopefully one can save more than one copedent. (You probably thought of that, right?)

Yes Jim, I have my D-10 & S-10 both in the app, and it looks like there's room for lots more.

Post Posted 14 Jul 2017 12:51 pm     Mutual Exclusions Reply with quote

Hi Michael, I just downloaded this and have been tweaking the copedent and have some questions for you:

Is there any way to remove a 'mutual exclusion' from the list? Your program seems to assume that one would never use 2 feet on C6, but some of us do (e.g., pedals 5+7 together, which is pre-listed as an exclusion).

Also, while trying to figure out if I could remove an exclusion, I accidentally added one that shouldn't be there. So, again, it raises the question of whether one can remove any from the list.

Thank you.

Jim
