# Discover suitable and related Chords "on the fly"
When playing melodies, kord highlights suitable chords based on the interval that sounded last, so you can instantly discover various possible harmonizations and progressions.
When playing chords or intervals, kord highlights related chords. You can intuitively control the desired degree of relationship simply by varying the played subsets of the original chord's intervals. This also enables you to explicitly specify the notes that you want to focus on when searching for the next chord for your progression.

# Explore Chords available in a given Scale
kord shows chords that are available in a selected scale sorted by complexity.

# Improvise on Scales and Chords
Scales and chords are shown as markings on the keyboard, enabling you to improvise fluently even on complex chords and scales you don't have internalized yet.

# Search for Scales
Find scales by selecting a set of notes directly on the keyboard. This is great when you're looking for a modulation that sustains your melodic leitmotif!

# Create your own Chord Progressions
While exploring and improvising, just drag and drop chords you like to create chord progressions.

# Store and share your Ideas
Save your ideas for later use or send it to other musicians by e-mail


MIDI-Out is available as an In-App-Purchase.

Find Chords that Work

In the chord palette your can explore chords that are available in your selected scale. While a chord is played, related chords are highlighted so you can easily find chord sequences that progress smoothly. Once you found a nice chord sequence, you can drag and drop chords into your song to build your composition upon it.
If you want to start your song with a melody and find a suitable chord progression, you can do that just as well: select notes and tap the search icon to show chords that match your melody fragment. It's real fun to experiment, seeing how different harmonic contexts affect the perception of the same melodic fragment.


Create Beautiful Melodies and Flowing Chord Progressions

In the piano roll, notes that are in harmony as well as the chords' root notes are highlighted. This makes it super easy to create leads, arpeggios and basslines and to experiment with different chord voicings to let your chord progressions flowing nicely.

A simple, yet feature rich and context-aware user interface helps you build up your ideas into whole songs:
Group sections into song parts and arrange them via drag and drop.
