Need something to practice soloing over? Want to be able to specify the chords and their durations? Quickly and easily? Say hello to chordbot. A very cool 'Band in a box' type app. There is a free version with basic features and a full blown one with many more as well. Great for casual unplugged type chord/scale practicing, or traveling/hotel type situations.
Some of the features:
- 60 chord types
Including classics like Aug7(#9) and Min11(b5). Should be enough for anything but the most esoteric bebop songs.
- 20+ comping styles
Simple but usable guitar/piano/synth based backgrounds.
- Auto inversion
Chordbot will automatically select the inversion that is best suited to follow the current chord.
- Slash chords
Lets you specify the bass note for each chord.
Easily transpose songs to any key.
Automatic song generator with profiles for pop, jazz and avant-garde.
- MIDI/WAV file export
Refine your compositions in Cubase/Logic/GarageBand, etc.
- Live editing
Change chords/tempo/style while the song is playing.
Pretty excellent little find. Thanks to my good friend Mo!
