Pro-grade chord progressions for instant inspiration

After the release of the original "Chords" we started to get lots of emails asking for an even more expansive set of features. Always keen to listen to feedback, we took the most wanted requests, threw in a few ideas of our own, and CHORDS PRO was born.

With almost double the number of chord types, A/B comparison modes and intelligent randomisation, CHORDS PRO develops concepts from the original plugin. For a fresh hit of motivation and creativity, this plugin should be your new go-to for designing your own chord progressions. Originally designed for EDM productions, but useful for a variety of genres, this upgraded workstation will conjure chords of all shapes and sizes with ease - in just a couple of clicks. Try out new ideas within the intuitive interface or click "create" to have CHORDS PRO come up with unique concepts, from suggesting single 4-note chords to producing entire 8-chord riffs.

Place this MIDI effect ahead of any MIDI-triggered audio generating plugin and hit play in your DAW. The innovate software will generate looped options for up to 8 chords with full control over chord shape, inversions, velocity and more. Then just drag the MIDI straight from the plugin to your project, letting your creativity flow freely, guided by the suggestions from CHORDS PRO.


With such a great reception to the original, we've injected CHORDS PRO with many new features: Use the A/B comparison toggle to lock-in a favourite sequence, whilst experimenting on another version of it. Hit the "create" button to intelligently randomise one or more chords in a sequence, based on the starting chords of your riff. The original plugin has only 18 chord types, but CHORDS PRO contains 30. Under the hood, the programming has been refreshed to take account of these new chord shapes, so that progressions sound musical and natural. This also applies to the refreshed and expanded selection of factory presets.

Global or Granular

Use the global controls to adjust inversions, length, speed and root key of the entire playback, making on-the-fly adjustments to your entire riff a simple process. To get into the detail, click a segment for more granular control over chord shapes (including major / minor variations), individual inversions and velocity.

Simple Segments

With up to 8 segments, each containing a different chord type, you can choose to trigger between one and four notes per chord. The playback of these segments syncs to the host BPM of your DAW, always remaining locked in time. You can add and subtract segments with ease and change a range of parameters, independently for each segment.

Essential Parameters

Each segment can be programmed with inversions from -6 to +6, transforming chord shapes and placing the root note inside of the chord itself. Experiment by pushing the lowest notes up an octave, or highest notes down an octave, turning your chords inside out.

Just The Tonic

With your chords loaded and a segment chosen, use the expanding range of chord shapes in the centre of the interface to choose between 30 different chord types: Tonic, Subdominant or Dominant. From simple triads, right through to more complex shapes, let CHORDS PRO find the right notes for any related chord. Fancy a Cmadd9 or a Am7b5? Just let this plugin find the correct notes and work out the difficult stuff for you.

Export MIDI

To get the chord progressions into your own projects, simply drag and drop from the plugin to your DAW. Then you can edit to your heart's content, chopping up the MIDI, transposing and twisting the CHORDS PRO suggestions to suit your own style of music.

Powerful Presets

CHORDS PRO includes a huge number of factory preset progressions, refreshed and expanded from the original. These are all labelled in detail and are useful musical motifs to get you up and running quickly, which can eventually become the basis for whole tracks.

Chords Pro
Reviewed By Milkman
November 15th, 2022

I will come back and update this after the dev gets back to me on my support request. Im using this on Win10, on Cubase 12 pro as a plugin.

First impressions: very simple, colorful, intuitive software with an easy-to-understand workflow for designing and generating chords and note progressions. I was able to quickly set up and register the software, and routing and playback was no trouble (I also use other MIDI generator/chord/scale plugins and they all route similarly).

What stopped me in my tracks is that I couldnt get Chords Pro to play back the right number of notes per bars when my DAW was in cycle mode, no matter how many times I tried or how I approached it.

When my DAW has cycle mode off, Chords Pro will continue playing without interruption, playing back(looping) the number of bars specified at the speed specified.

When cycle mode is on, when the play head returns to the start position Chords Pro goes silent for a whole bar every time.

Also, whether cycle mode is on or off, I get a stutter note when Chords first starts to play. Every time. Instead of only the first note or chord of the pattern, it plays twice in rapid succession. This never happens again as long as it keeps playing. Ill come back later if the dev fixes this.
