The Chord Editor


Image


To open the Chord Editor select the Pencil Icon to the left of the Chord Set slider (blue marked on the screen).

With the editor you can edit the six chords of the currently selected Global Chord Set. Each slider column is one chord over the 4 strings. Right of the slider you will see the resulting note - which also depends on the Fine Tune.

Presets

You do not have to design every chord by yourself. You can select a chord (Preset Target) and push one of the preset buttons below (A,B,C…; Am (m = minor), Bm, Cm). That's it. Done, the chord is changed!

Scales

If you like you can generate scale based chords randomly. Select a scale, select a Target Chord and push the button “Fill Target Chord randomly from Scale” or if you want you can do this for all chords by clicking the button “Fill ALL Chords randomly from scale”.

Tip: How to make a blues chord progression: A D E? -> select chord one and assign the “A-“preset and also to chord two and three. Set transpose at chord one to 0, chord two to +5 and chord three to +7 (like in the picture above). Then assign these chords to 12 bars 1-1-1-1-2-2-1-1-3-2-1-3 (A-A-A-A-D-D-A-A-E-D-A-E) and enable some steps in those bars. Enjoy.
