Device Overview

Name/Version: Ben Soma Chord Player 2.7
Author: BenjaminSoma  
Description: You too can instantly play chords like an experienced pianist using the Chord Player!

No need to learn how to play chords on an Ableton Push.

With this extensive Ableton Live Max MIDI effect you can play all chords in the desired key with just a finger!

Playing chords and writing music is easy when you don't have to think about which notes to play.

Works in any key with the turn of a knob. You can even modulate while playing.

Put my music theory knowledge to work for you:

The chords in each key have been organized to create proper voice-leading by ear quickly and easily.

This Ableton Live Max MIDI effect translates incoming MIDI into chords, so you can play it with any MIDI controller. However it was designed specifically for use with Ableton Push, Push 2, Novation Launchpad, LinnStrument by Roger Linn Design, and 16-pad MIDI controllers.

This Max MIDI effect created for use with Ableton Live. So it runs natively in Ableton Live with Max for Live installed on Win or Mac.

Requires Ableton Live 9.7.7 or later

Doooood. A native device! Been using your other Chord Palyer effect rack for a long time now. This is MUCH easier.

Upgrade for existing users?

10/10 device Benjamin! Bought it earlier today. Absolutely love it.

Huge upgrade to the old MIDI effect rack version. Thanks for your hard work on this!


And if I'm not in one key?

Yes - if you are an existing user, please email me and I will send you an exclusive discount code to upgrade.

You can always automate key changes in Ableton using the key selection knob.
