With ChordPadX, chords 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. You can also add a label of your choice.

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 drag and drop between apps! ChordPadX and Suggester can communicate through drag and drop. You can also drag pads and chords into another app if it supports MIDI drag and drop.

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

This could be a killer app with some enhancements

The ability to explode chords
meaning the explode the notes of any chord onto the 16 pads
Enabling the user to perform bass lines or Melodie’s form the notes contained in the chord

Add ability for strum chords
since the app is AUV3 it does not necessarily need to record midi within the app but it would be nice if you could write your entire song with in the app as it currently stands. The app can be used to generate midi on a track within a DAW.

I could use one instance to crate the chord progression move the midi to my desired piano app
If I could explode the 4 chords into
4 smaller boxes contain 16 squares and work out bass and melody
This concept would better be applied to the standalone app as AUV3 does provided limited space

Developer Response ,

There are some good ideas in there. Thank you for your feedback! :)

Nice app! Includes features I haven’t found in other apps

First off, thank you to the developer who quickly helped me troubleshoot and resolve an issue I was having when trying to use the app. I was not expecting such a quick response to my support inquiry or for a resolution to be offered during our first exchange.

The app is well designed and I like the included features. It works well with my custom built arduino midi controller and allows me to do things I haven’t found in other apps.

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
