Oh, didnt understand that. That seems not possible in Reaper or Ableton
We are talking in english. If I talk into spanish to you, probabily you don't understand me. Even worse if I keep silence. If two software didn't talk in the same language, that cannot be acomplished. But it's even worse if one of them do not "talk". That's I mean. In the same way the most common way to talk is english, the one in sotware is the "file" language. Example: FL Studio allows drags from its browser to another external third-party windows using this (File drag and drop), so I can play with that in Nora.

So I need to import a sequence to Nora the best way possible (from rapidcomposer for example, this is why i'm asking for chords to keep), and then I'll press a 5note chord manually (or use one of the many "chorderizers") and listen. Press record if I like what I hear… I can even do keyboard splits to input 3-4note (scale-based) chords from the leftmost octave via chord generator, and input additional non-tonal notes from the remaining keys… Really chord sequences are kept in sequencer only for future reference, the real material is almost always rendered to actual note arpeggios and stuff, tweaked and edited afterwards with CC's or automation curves per clip or whatever.
I can use as many chord generators or as many keyboards I have, so input up to 10note chord is not a problem, and it's not tiresome at all. Everything I suggest — from proper midi import to phrases to one-click pattern creation from selected notes — is practice-based need.
Yes, I understand you. So the thing I was thought have no use here
Anyway, I will continue with my plans to add better conversion of a MIDI file in a Phrase. I'll write my progress here as soon as I start with it
