Chord ai uses recent advances in artificial intelligence to give you the chords and beats of any song automatically and reliably. You won't need anymore to look for the chords of a song on the web. Chord AI listens to the music played from your device or around you and shows you the chords instantly.
In its basic version, Chord AI is able to recognize the following chords:
- major and minor
- augmented, diminished
- 7th, M7th
- suspended (sus2, sus4)
In the Pro version that you can get with just a one-time in-app purchase, Chord ai can recognize thousands of advanced chords using the latest advances in the field of machine learning such as:
- power chords
- half-diminished, dim7, M7b5, M7#5
- 6th, 69th, 9th, M9th, 11th, M11th, 13th, M13th
- add9, add11, add#11, addb13, add13
- 7#5, 7b5, 7#9, 7b9, 69, 11b5, 13b9,
and combinations of the above! (such as 9sus4, min7add13 etc.)
In addition, Chord ai Pro is able to detect chord inversions such as C/E where the third (E) is played as the lowest note, or Am7/G where the seventh (G) is played as the lowest note.
For guitar and ukulele players, Chord ai also comes with a massive library of chord positions.
Chord ai even works offline. You don't need to have an internet connection (unless you want to play a song from YouTube or a streaming service).
How does Chord ai work? Chord ai can find the chords of a song in two ways:
1) For audio files that you have on your device or iCloud, YouTube videos, SoundCloud songs, Chord ai will process the song in a few seconds to give you all the chords of the song at once
2) Through your device microphone. Any song playing around you, or played by your device from a streaming service, is analysed with your device microphone and the chords of the song are shown in real time. You can go back in time and replay the song together with the chords displayed on a timeline.
Regarding the 17+ age restriction: This is simply enforced by Apple for any application which lets you browse YouTube videos freely.

Ratings and Reviews
I’ve always wanted to do Roman numeral analysis on my favorite pop songs, but I’ve been too lazy to do it on my own. This app makes the whole process so much easier! The money to unlock all the chords was well worth it. Sometimes I disagree with the app’s judgement on some of the chords. There were a couple of times when I was sure a certain chord was fully diminished, but the app marked it as something else entirely. However, most of the time it seems to be pretty spot on!
I wish it would let me manually override the identified key, because that is something it gets wrong fairly often (at least with songs I listen to!) That’s my only complaint. Love this app. Thank you for making it.
Great core functionality, weak workflow
The basic chord recognition aspect of this is astonishingly good. It doesn’t always nail the exact guitar chord shape, but that would be a lot to ask. But otherwise the quality is pretty amazing.
The downside is the input and output workflow. Loading media can be a tedious process of working down through directories or playlists, starting from the very top of the hierarchy every time. If I want to look at a bunch of related files, I wish it would open up at the last place I looked rather than having to start over. But that’s a small thing; not many people have the same use case as me. What I really wish, though, was that I could have a plain text output format, perhaps chord names separated by tabs instead of HTML, which I have extract the chord data from by hand.
All that said, this is a pretty great piece of software and I recommend it highly for most people.
Outstanding! But not Perfect.
This is a great app. Really helps narrow down the chords, and is great way to get a “feel” for chord progressions, but I can’t say it’s “perfect”. However, my guess is that is just where the state of the technology is at this point. I’m amazed at what it can do already, but will wait for more advanced tech to get to the next level. There’s a couple small picky things when it comes to the looping that I’d like to see improved as well. Have used the free version for a few weeks, and just sprung for the paid version a couple hours ago, so I will wait to hold off judgement on some of the paid features. I definitely recommend for anyone trying to figure out songs that are not easily available in tab form already. It has saved me hours of work!
