Chordbot is great! I've been a professional musician since I was 8 years old. I'm 57 now. No, Chordbot isn't Pro Tools but it's not trying to be Pro Tools. It's much, much simpler because it's not for recording but for writing! Got an idea for a song? Wanna know what chords to use and some possibilities of how it could sound? Whip out Chordbot. You'll never find a quicker way because the GUI is so simple and the work flow can't be beat.
Perfect for ideas and practice Just what I was looking for. Pretty easy to use and sounds good. My only suggestion would be to add some distorted guitar sounds, and maybe a couple of interface tweaks. But this is really solid.
Very limited arranging and broken copy-paste. I got this to accompany me when playing. There isnt a plethora of styles to choose from, which in this case is good, because finding them among a huge unordered list under names "soft 00" etc would be impossible. Chord progression is clumsy to arrange without sections or repeats or jumps or such. The problem is made worse by broken copy-paste functionality. It's best to arrange different parts to different songs in app. Definitely a nice concept, but left me uncharmed. Will be eyeing out competition.
Update is visually awful. The old version was far better both to use and to look at. The new pastel colours (WTF?) are so wishy washy it makes me want to switch it off before I even try to programming anything. The old version was better for visually monitoring where you were in a sequence, too, with multiples of four bar sections shown horizontally (four bars across) but the new vertical column of single bars is very poor and I really don't get the point. I'm so glad I haven't decided to pay for it yet because I would now be asking for a refund. It's awful.
Musician companion Very useful as an accompaniment when you have insufficient musicians in your band! Thank you so much developer.
Great app! Does everything I need to create backing track for solo ideas or future songs.
