I've recently been working on a MIDI tool that works in the browser, and hooks up to your DAW. It allows you to create chord progressions in the browser. I'll save the detailed explanation and link to the video that demonstrates it and shows you how to set it up ... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wV9QHUIesbI

The page is here: https://labs.jamesjeffery.co.uk

This is purely a prototype of what's possible in the browser. To my knowledge nobody has every done anything similar.

I created this project while I was learning the Web MIDI API. I'm a software developer by trade and often like to combine my music hobby and software development to create interesting "things".

I have plans to further extend this and include some more features but it won't be ready for public release for a good few months. It will eventually be hosted on a domain I own instachord.com

Thanks for watching/reading :)

Man, absolutely fantastic. I’m a big fan of MIDI processors and like how fast it is to assign a chord to the note. Thank you!

Someone else recently released a vst called instachord. That might be problematic for your branding.

Just gets stuck with "waiting input from midi device".

Chrome. It recognizes my midi keyboard though.

Yeah, I thought it was a joke at first, because of the current VST from PB. I'm not sure what your plans are, but here's a library that you might be interested in.
