How Dodeka works

Dodeka introduces a new musical stave together with a chromatic scale of 12 notes and writes musical rhythm horizontally.

There are now twelve notes in the musical scale. These notes are inserted in four different ways – on, between, above and below the lines and they all keep their position in every octave.

Sharp and flat symbols simply disappear!

Sheet music become clear, visual, and easy-to-read no matter what key you are playing.
