i was searching for this one!!!
great ... hope you add more chords to it ..
Thanks, Wish it held all the chords rather than just major & minor, been waiting for a good chord reader.
Finally I found, what i have looked for.
But it does not match 100% my wish.
It will be great to recognize a chord by pressing at least 3 keys. Now recognize the software a chord even by pressing 1 key.

May be, it is possible to put a switch for "chord-selection" mode.
Hey dasfaker,

thanks for your great Devices! Do you see any possibility to make chord changes in real time? E. g. let's say you have a very long chord held (e. g. a pad) - could your Arranger change this chord while it's still playing?

Thanks, Udo
