midiChords is a flexible VST MIDI plugin for playing chords and/or keyboard re-mapping. It can map any input note to 0 or more output notes. It is still in development but has the following features:

- Keyboard or guitar (generic fretted stringed instrument) view for chord input
- Basic strumming
- Input chords by clicking the keyboard display, MIDI Learn, or by typing intervals/note names directly
- Chord shapes and keyboard mappings can be saved/loaded as simple text files, displayed in menus on the plugin GUI
- Copy/Paste chords to other trigger notes
- Supports multichannel chords: each chord note can be output to any combination of MIDI channels
- Optional chord name recognition
- Applies input velocity to the output chord
- Output can be transposed for playing in other keys
- Set one chord per MIDI note for 128 different chords (Full mode)
- Use Octave mode to repeat the same 12 chords in every octave
- Full mode transposes one chord across the whole input range
- Has 128 internal programs with optional MIDI program change listening

There is some documentation included that goes into more detail. I'm accepting donations to remove the "UNREGISTERED DEMO VERSION" text from the interface. There are no other demo limitations.

Download:

As with all my MIDI plugins, the source code is available at the pizmidi Google Code site.

Have fun!!!

I'm working on a guitar neck view. Actually, fretted instrument neck view, for up to 12 strings in any tuning. When that is done I plan to charge lots of money for it.

I just fixed a bug with saving mappings in the ".chords" format. If you saved any before, they are messed up.

Also added:
- Drag & drop loading of .chords, .fxp, .fxb
- fxp files in the "mappings" folder work in presets menu
- More preset chord shapes (Chords.txt)
- Right-click "Play Chord" button to keep playing until next click

As in too many chords or too big on the screen? I can do submenus and/or make the font smaller...
