Create and play complex chord progressions easily. Hundreds of mixable instrument patterns and styles.

Chordbot is a songwriting tool / electronic backup band that lets you create and play complex chord progressions in different arrangements easily. Just add some chords, select a comping style and hit play.

Use it for songwriting experiments, to create backing tracks for practicing solos, or just for fun. Easily create arrangements and mixes by selecting from hundreds of piano, guitar, synth, bass and drum tracks.

This is a fully functional evaluation version of the full (paid) Chordbot version. It has all the features of the full version, but with disabled save and export features.

Chord Visualization needed

Would be awesome if we could get a chord visualizer as a keyboard representation or something.

I’ve played piano for years, and did a little music theory in high school. However, I’ve never really learned all the notes that make up chord notations.

As I experiment with songwriting having a visual representation of the chords would help so much. So I can take what sounds like a nice chord progression, and turn it into something that better fits my musical expression.

Anyways, super cool app, and all the controls are really intuitive. Easy to use, and definitely worth spending the $ if you write your own music regularly.

Very nice little app. Easy to work with. I'd like to see a voice recorder. It would make it a much better songwriting tool. Alternate bass notes would be great too. The ability to change chords on the 8th note positions would be helpful too. However, out of all the little free and cheaper apps I've got, I know this is the one I'll actually use. Keep going!

Prior to an update months ago, this was a useful product I considered buying. Unfortunately, the updated version crashes every ten minuets and the project disappears. It WAS useful, until the update made it keep crashing on my 4s and 5s. Of course, the solution would probably be to buy an iphone 7 or the soon to be 8, but I don't have a thousand dollars to spend.
