Chord Progressions Made Easy

Create and manipulate chords with one note

Like A Guitar Or Keyboard

A C Maj chord on the guitar does not sound the same as a C Maj chord on the piano. To ensure your chords sound authentic, we created separate Devices that accurately model the voicings of these instruments.

Always Stay In Key

Each preset comes with Major, Minor and Minor Harmonic versions to give you access to all the important chords in every key. Use the “Key” and “Transpose” macros to shift between keys at any time.

Spice Up Your Chords

Use the unique macros in each preset to add extra flavour to your chords. Depending on the Device used you can invert chords, add extra voicings, switch to power chords, and more.

Maximum Expression

animate your MIDI notes and patterns

Strum Like A Guitar

“Sounding like a guitar” is no longer a thing of the future. Add this Device to any guitar sound and adjust the parameters to get the realistic strumming action as if you were playing an actual guitar.

Arps With A Flair

Take arpeggiating to new heights with these Devices. On top of the 11 different patterns and plethora of expressive macros, you have the unique ability to sustain arpeggios and sound like a guitar.

Expression Re-defined

Breath new life into your MIDI tracks using presets such as “Note Flam”, “Octaver” and “Chord Repeater”. Use MIDI tools to get deeper control on Sustain, Pitchbend, and ModWheel.

Always Better Together

A Guitar For Everyone

No guitar? No problem. We wanted to make it quick and easy for you to get a realistic guitar sound so we included two custom-made Guitar Devices that sample the neck and bridge of a GrassRoots G-NS-70.

An Amp You'll Use

Whether you play guitar or not, dialing in the sound you want with this versatile Guitar Amp Device is super easy with the intuitive macros. You can even use this on other instruments for cool, unexpected results!

Live 11 Snapshots

We’ve taken advantage of the new Ableton Live 11 features and created useful snapshots on certain presets for additional functionality.
