Chord memory

Ok i can play the piano but sometimes i want just put my chords down quickly ...im new at logic pro still but i just discovered chord memorizer ...i see you have to build up the chords on the virtual keyboard

My question is there any way i could just press the chords simultaneously using my midi keyboard instead of manually building the chord on my mouse...i would like to just assign the one single note up top on the first keyboard and then on the bottom just press the chord simultaneously and have logic read its midi data ...then i could just organize my chord together on single notes ...if logic can't do this is there any type of plug in that can

Re: Chord memory

You don't have to bold your whole post man.

so you're looking for a 'one touch chord' feature like a lot of old toy casio and yamaha type 90s keyboards would have? I can't say I know anything like that but it's way worth just practicing a lot and memorizing the chord shapes to play them.

I usually figure out chords and then just punch them in anywhere on an empty midi clip in the order I want, then organize them into an actual riff/progression.

also I don't know if logic has one but some programs have a 'chord library' sorta built in, I remember when I used FL studio that it had a pretty extensive one.

Re: Chord memory

Too bad you don't have Ableton, I found this and I've been using it a ton, it feels like cheating... All you have to do is pick what key you want to work in, drag some clips in then BAM, press a buncha buttons on your midi controller and your automatically playing chord progressions in key. They work as midi clips so I can just drag and drop them into arrangment and put any synth on the track.

Re: Chord memory

I always find the key i'm in and make chords within that key, I've never given much attention to what name they have. If you have a midi controller and play in the chord the transport section at the bottom of the screen tells you what chord you're playing.

Re: Chord memory

Cubase has a plugin called Chorder. I suspect you can get it from somewhere because it does not really seem native to Cubase; it's nowhere in their operation mauals. It's got jazz chords, guitar chords, major, minoe, etc. You can teach it to play your chords, but I'm still trying to figure that out.
