Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , , ,

ChordBud is an all in one app that combines most important concepts when sketching a song. You have tons of scales, their harmonic fields, option to choose triads, 7th and extended chords with their inversions, most common chord progressions with the ability to creating your custom progressions and even notes if you want to sketch a melody or bass, all under your hand.

New features recap:
– History (undo/redo up to 10 steps)
– Multiple input editing (Hold your finger on the timetable for a second to drag-to-select tool)
– Custom duration for sequencer (It was auto-calculated based on the longest track in your sequence, now you can set it on the timetable with range pointer)
– Change octave for the individual inputs (Used to be all inputs share the same octave in the same track and only can change from the track settings. Long press an input for the “octave change” menu item)
– Chord inversions

ChordBud does not generate sound but has a built-in MIDI sequencer that sends MIDI to other MIDI-enabled apps in your iOS device, connected MIDI hardware and CoreMIDI enabled software on your Mac or PC via network session. It auto-detects available MIDI destinations and lets you choose which one you want to connect. Also, it supports Ableton Link as well!

You can add up to 16 tracks to your projects, add chords or notes to your tracks and assign different MIDI channels to them and sketch your ideas into a real song.

Lots of scales, chord progressions, harmonic fields, triads, tetrads and extended chords with rich editing features are waiting for you to create your next awesome song.

ChordBud also offers its core components open sourced on GitHub. Feel free to fork them, send a pull request to make it better, open an issue to share your ideas or give them a star if you like them.
