The Oud Tutor is an oud simulator program that provides you with an intuitive way to learn how to play your favorite songs on a real oud. It enables you to learn how to play a song, by playing the sound and showing proper fingerings, animated on the oud fingerboard, in real-time with the music.
When playing the sample melodies that come with The Oud Tutor, the maqam of the played melody is reflected onto the oud. If the music piece involves maqam changes (modulation), the changes are shown in real-time.
In addition to playing music files, The Oud Tutor also allows you to play the oud yourself using the mouse or the keyboard. The Oud Tutor provides full microtone capability, with a user-controlled option to approximate microtones smaller than quarter notes to the nearest 1/4 note.
