Impro-Visor 6.0
Impro-Visor is a music notation and playback tool for helping jazz musicians learn to improvise. It features a notation GUI, automated playback of chords and rhythm using MIDI, and improvisation advice provided in a variety of ways, including being able to improvise jazz itself. Data are stored as open-format text files. MIDI and MusicXML export are also available.

Release Notes: The Style/Section editor has been changed to allow greater flexibility. There is a virtual keyboard for entering notes on the screen. There is now an option within Import MIDI tracks from File to infer chords. The Style Extractor no longer requires a leadsheet file to specify chords; extraction is done only from MIDI files. The grammar formalism contains some new constructs, including the ability to specify relative pitches (rather than just abstract notes), and other built-ins. The roadmap analysis algorithm has been changed to use harmonic tempo.
