ChordMapMidi is an Virtual MIDI Controller for the iPhone that allows anyone to create strong chord progressions “live,” one finger tap at a time. If you enjoy exploring chords, while playing an instrument you can hold in the palm of your hand, ChordMapMidi is for you!
PLEASE NOTE: ChordMapMidi sends commands to the Virtual MIDI compatible instrument apps you already have on your device. It doesn’t create any sounds on its own.
HOW IT WORKS:
ChordMapMidi is based on the chord progression diagrams developed by music educator, Stephen Mugglin. The goal is to allow anyone, even beginning musicians and songwriters, to effortlessly play interesting chord progressions, one finger tap at a time.
The idea behind the Maps is to start at the location labelled I (One), jump from there to another location in the chart, and then work your way back toward I (One) by letting “gravity” pull you down the chart.
Although the diagrams may look unusual at first, the user experience is so simple that even beginners can play strong-sounding progressions right away. You simply touch one location at a time and then listen to the sound each location makes.
After a short time exploring, you’ll find you can play all kinds of progressions easily, in 12 different major keys, just by jumping around and tapping the various map locations.
