Great little app
If you are looking for a way to setup a chord progression to practice noodling along to, this is perfect.
UI is a bit different from your usual iPhone app, but its feature rich and does the job perfectly.
Try the free one first to see if you can find your way around ok.
There's something rather special about the music Chordbot produces... atmospheric, powerful and haunting. The presets are superb and the app is really easy to use. The MIDI files transfer perfectly into DAWs and, if you obtain the original samples (details in the manual), it's easy to continue developing the ideas, there. Customer support is exceptional, too.
You won't believe how good this app is as a songwriting/practice tool until you try it! I would give up all my other iOS apps if I had to (including my train time checker) just to keep this one.
Whilst there are a few bugs that need to be ironed out these do not affect how useful it is and I expect these will be fixed in a subsequent update. More importantly, it improves considerably on the previous version which was already very good, but had some limitations.
I had given up hope that Chordbot would be developed further, but after this major update hopefully users can look forward to further enhancements in future. Brilliant!
