Chord Detector is aimed at musicians of any ability to help you learn to play the tracks on your iPod music library by automatically detecting the chords within the track.
With our update Chord Detection engine its now much quicker and easier to get most accurate results possible (up to 95% in ideal conditions). Chord Detector can recognise many different chord types including major, minor, augmented, dimimished, diminished7, dominant7 and minorMajor7.
To get started just select one of your iPod library tracks(†) from within the Chord Detector app and within minutes you will be presented with a view of the detected chords contained within that track.
You have the option to view the detected chords in two different forms, scrolling and tabular. In both of these views you are able to play the track and the chords will move or be highlighted as the song is playing.
You can now start to view the chords of a track when analysis is still ongoing. Also you can queue up tracks to be processed, so while you are learning to play one song the chords are being generated for your other tracks in the background.
The following controls are available on the chord view screens:-
For best performance we recommend using this app on iPhone 3Gs and above.
