This tool fires chords into the Pattern Editor when record mode is on, and previews chords using OSC server when record mode is off.

Thank you Pandabot for the tool !
I will hunt bugs, then you have to use “code gun”, bang bang bang ;)
(but maybe this kind of tool doesn’t contains bugs)

+ the video with explanations is always welcome for everybody.

What could be your next tool ???
Cheers

This is awesome.

Must have required a lot of hardcore studying and effort to make this.

 

What does the 'modal mixture button' do exactly?

I can see its re-ordering the chords but in what way, by what rules?

Modal mixture is for borrowing chords from other modes, so it looks at the secondary scale and add any chords from that scale that aren't already present. https://en.wikipedia.../Borrowed_chord

 

I refactored scalefinderOSC codebase to make this tool https://forum.renois...er-osc-01alpha/ but yeah scalefinder is the original. This one has some added functionality and better behavior but they are pretty similar.

Thanks for the 'borrowed chords' link. Thats very interesting.

This tool will be good for studying as well as writing music.

 

Until now I had only understood that if I am using C Major, for example, I could also use other modes with the same notes ( C Major = D Dorian, E Phrygian, F Lydian, G Mixolydian, A Aeolian, B Locrian ) but I hadnt considered borrowing chords from 'C minor' or 'another C scale' ( as those scales contain different notes to C Major ).

Would be cool if we could trigger a chord with one key.. just like chordz or scaler

You can use the keyboard shortcuts right?
 
Although I guess it's not possible to assign the number keys without also holding a modifier key down because some of them are used for the renoise midi keyboard.

Whoa lol, I guess your system doesn't recognize the \t escape character. I replaced it with spaces, I think that should fix it

It is looks nice (did not use it yet).

One question - how can i change chord root pitch? I think it is possible to use global oct setting in renoise, but it is not comfortable for me because i use midi keyboard to enter notes and this setting also affects it.

oh yeah it uses that global setting for the chord root pitch, so unfortunately you'll have to change that to change it

Maybe I'm doing it wrong, but is there a way to hear the notes played while record mode is turned on?

No unfortunately the tool doesn't work like that, if chords are previewed while record mode is on then velocity values are populated for each note with volume column visible (side effect of how notes are sent to OSC server). This wasn't acceptable for me because I like to keep the pattern editor as clean as possible, so I opted for no preview while record mode is turned on
