This isn't a issue with RapidComposer, I just wanted to see how using RapidComposer, how when you let's say, have RapidComposer create your verse, what do you do to create a chorus that's not in the same scale/key but a different scale/key but sounds good/match or ???

Right now I'm just a random guy just randomizing until it sounds like a match.

This is for chord progressions only since this is usually the starting point for me.

Obviously it is totally up to what you want to do via creative license..

I tend to try to use at least some theory in the process. For example, change the key/scale, or known as modulation, I may use chord from the original key and maybe use the 5th from that to modulate to.

The reason I tend to use a theoretical approach, is that, it is already known that something will or will not work together musically.

It completely depends on the mood of the piece to put into context.

I suggest watching videos or reading articles on the different approaches for writing.

So I forgot about Negative Harmony.
The chord progression that I created in RapidComposer, I applied Negative Harmony to create a chorus chord progression.

Here's a cool video that describes Negative Harmony

The chorus chord progression is the negative harmony of the verse chord progression.
