With ChordPadX, chord are at your fingertips! Trigger chords and notes intuitively, with a human touch.

Focused on intuition and efficiency, this app gives you the tools to create new song ideas in seconds. It will enable you to very easily trigger chords that sound good together. It's made for all levels of musicians, from pro to beginner.

Pick from a selection of dynamic templates and find chords based on your choices. Rearrange the pads with drag and drop to form the layout that you need. Or create your own from scratch by dragging chords from the palette.

Use your fingers to trigger multiple pads at the same time. The pads are velocity sensitive and the response curve is adjustable with precision.

Then adjust the chords through advanced editing. Change the chord type, alter the voicing with chord inversion, add bass, or choose a new pad color.

All chords generated by the app are also sent to the MIDI output.

Trigger the pads directly with your fingers, or use the MIDI input to control them.

Use Audio Unit (AUv3), Audiobus, Inter-app Audio and Core MIDI to connect with other apps. Sync up the tempo with Ableton Link.

Love the app only one thing missing

I love this app, its so usefull..... for music creating... i only wish they added one feature to make it complete...

The ability to export out a midi a sequence or a pad..... just like suggester exports out a midi sequence..
Its just much easier for me to import a midi sequence from korg gadyet without having to play it and record it in the right time.

And the ability to copy more than one chord at a time, so what can recreate a new pad with the selected chords from another pad.
(This way, i will export the sequence chords i really need).

Thank you

Audio unit doesn’t work

Excuse my 1 start is just to catch your attentionto this bug is a great and i will change the rate when it is fixed.
Another upgrade that i will love to see is that you add the option to add chords but playing the keys of a virtual piano and not that the only wayto choose your chords would be the actual way to do that. I found it less practical and makes me not to be sure of buy the full unlock being anothers apps that let me do that as chordpolypad

With the audiounit fixed and this feature to add your own chords playing the keys 1 per 1 since you get all your notes and create the chord that you want, just the same than chordpolypad.
Chordpadx would be the ultimate app for chords.
Good luck with this apps and features updates.

Pd: i test the audio unit with garageband and cubasis, never appear chordpadx as audio unit...

Update: sorry i didn’t know that exist another kind of auv3 apart from instruments and effect, i recently buy aum and it detect your app as auv3, but, i have to clarify that when i said that you could add a piano, i didn’t mean midi imput feature, that would be great too but i was saiying just a virtual piano in your app that you actually could touch it to select what keys would be in your chordpad, or if it not inside of your ipad could work the piano that is inside aum, but i don’t know if it needs authorization or aum or how it could work is just an idea.
Of couse that if you add the posibility to connect a real piano would be the same but if you add a virtual piano would be even more practical, just remember that would be important we can add the keys in the chord without the need of press all the keys at the same time, good luck
