raymondwave wrote1) Yes, but it works with proper chords only.
1) It shifts all the notes in the track to the "follow mode". Have you tried the other two for Instruments?
2) If you want to preserve a Note or even an Event within a track set to follow that would be a Feature request. Workarounds would be to but your the melodies you wan exactly preserved on a sperate track and turn follow off.
3) See (1)
4) Another FR
Jonny Lipsham demonstrates both audio and Instrument detection and changing chords/transposing.
One minor update, at end Circle of Fifth #/b spelling is based on your root key.
I also noticed that Groove3 just put up a Studio One 4 Advanced tutorial. The first two videos are free samples and cover chord track overview and setting up the chord track.
jpettit wroteericbiggins wroteThanks for the the work. I have been trying to get an answer from Presonus on this but so far nothing, perhaps you can help.
Thank you very much for your response. Yes I understand I am actually playing a Eb, but I don't want to think in a flat key. I only play tuned down because of severe neuropathy which causes muscle weakness. I would like to know and still haven't heard from Presonus is if I can change the tuning of the chord wheel without affecting the pitch. So I can put in that I'm playing a half step down or any step and it automatically transposes the chord names as standard with out stretching the audio. Similar to how I can set my tuner for a 1/2 step down and a Eb reads as E
I'm not sure if I'm communicating this clearly or how to communicate it.
This is a new feature and it is best to create an FR for shifting chords with out shifting the key.

hendrik84 wroteDoes the Chord Track not detect chords with a different bass note?
Are you talking about Audio Detection or Instrument Detection or Chord Selector Input Detection?
There is a lot to answering what and why.
1) the timing of the notes.
2) the track type
3) the method of detection
To ALL with formal music theory training (not me )
The accuracy of the chord naming/spelling is well at an initial release level and will improve over time.
Although there was a ton of work put into it, some of it is not totally under the immediate control of Presonus.
The MIDI input/ Instrument track algorithms are.
The Audio track detection is 3rd party code and as such improvement rates will vary.
This will compound as ARA2 plugins are released that supports the Chord Track.
Just wanted people to be aware of the challenges.
Thanks for this, Jeff
All the best.

Only recently purchased S1 4 and I am really enjoying this chord functionality. To date I've really just been experimenting and generating ideas so this handbook will better help me understand why I get the results I do and even expand to other ideas.
Really looking forward to this functionality continuing to expand over time. Thanks jpettit!
Yes I am hoping that in the future they will
1) improve the auditioning of the chord prior to making a change for musicians who play by ear.
2) enhancements to the circle of fifths to help people to understand chords in a key and the next level music theory such as borrowing chords
3) add a mode that actually creates the chords in the instrument track per the wheel.
4) enhance the heads up of chords so new musicians in a session can easly follow along from across the room.
And of course improve chord detection and spelling or give preference for slash chords verses extended spellings.
Something I have not seen anyone talk of but perhaps make a video in the future but the fun and surprising good results found by applying random musical and audio loops from the supplied loop library that inherite the progression.

Little late to the game. Nice job! Very helpful. Appreciate your effort!
