Ratings and Reviews
Amazing AUv3 Midi Chord App
I’m not sure about some of these reviews because this app is amazing. I love their other offerings but this is my favorite. You can play the chords on pads, on a keyboard, send a midi note through it to send out chords, sequence the chords, and add all kinds of great randomization features to time, velocity, and voicings. You can set a range for the randomness, and how often things change. Even lock certain parts and randomize others. This app can do arpeggios, jump between chord types, strum, and has so many great features to make the chord playing sound very realistic. Tons of scales and chord types. It can even detect audio and give you an accurate reading of the chord/note. I could go on, but if you mess with midi and/or chords on your iDevice this is a must have app. One of my favorite apps of 2021!
I’ve been using Chord Jam all week. It is brilliant. My Korg Nano-Key Studio has been transformed as a songwriting tool. The timing and velocity controls give such a human feel especially to orchestral sounds. Thanks.

Thanks for the feedback, enjoy!
The interaction between the scale and chord type makes no sense. The app makes it impossible to produce some basic chords, and user chords are not supported. For triad people, it’s a clever and useful app. For jazz and modern composition it imposes some irritating limits on your chord options. The structure for choosing chords is not likely to be improved without a major rethink of the core concept.
