Chord Player Overview:
The Chord Player allows you to Play and/or Record Chords using single midi note triggers in your DAW* or within the Sequencer Grid. You can customise every single chord in the grid and pad or row level. The scales have also been locked in place, so regardless of the note you press, the chord generated will always be in the key set in the Chord Generator.
1. Chord Player Settings
This is where you choose whether you can select whether you want Chord Triggering or recording to be active or not. This is also where the Chord Editor will appear which lets you edit the chord pads at both Chord and Row level. Please note that you have to have either Record Enabling or Input Monitoring active on the track which the Chord Composer is on for the Chord Recording to work.
2. Chord Grid:
This is a visual representation of all the chords which you can trigger in the Chord Composer. The chords are mapped based on the starting root note which you choose in the Chord Generator tab. In the below example, the root is set to C3 (Midi Note 60), so the Chord Grid is mapped two octaves below and above this note.
You can also edit the Chord Grid at row or pad level using the Chord Player editor, which will on the left side of the Chord Player. The middle row cannot be edited, as this represents the chords currently in your chord bank, but the will update based on changes you make in the Chord Generator.
Chord Pad Editing:
Chord Row Editing:
If the Sequencer Grid isn't empty, then you will be provided with a prompt asking if you want to clear the grid of any chords you currently have.
Playback and recording will continue to loop around the number of bars you set in the Sequencer Grid Controller until you stop playback. When playback stops, you have the option to discard the recorded chords, or save the progression. Once the chords are saved, they will be converted and you will have the same level of editing as chords generated in the Pattern Generators on directly in the grid.
