- Chord shapes and keyboard mappings can be saved/loaded as simple text files, displayed in menus on the plug-in 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.
