Melody Blend

To hear the melody played along with accompaniment at higher volume, touch the “melody” button to the right of the key signature. Use the slider that appears when “melody” is selected to adjust the blend from roughly 60/40 melody/accompaniment at the far left to melody only at the far right. You can also tap “Blend” or “Melody” to immediately set the slider to one of the two extremes. Tap -8va, 0va, or +8va to hear the melody in one of three octaves. To turn off melody and return the accompaniment to full volume, simply click the melody button again. (Note that in many vocal pieces, the melody is doubled in the accompaniment, as specified by the composer, arranger or publisher. So you may hear melody even when the melody button is not selected.)
