Just define your Major Root and the Notes you play will be mirrored around the axis between the Tonic and Dominant (for C the axis is between E and Eb.)

Interesting. Curious what Reddit thread that image is from.

Hi. this is the thread:

How does this device work?

Hi shinito,
thanks for your interest.
this device changes midi notes according to the theory of negative harmony. with such it is possible to play a chord and get it's negative form, which will sound arguably chromatic but will have the same "weight" if we can say so.
just drop it in a midi track and record its output with a second midi track to see the result
