Excellent job, and it should help people understand its potential for songwriting and other traditional music tasks as well as EDM.

I've been using it to add chord substitutions to make rock chord progressions more interesting, and doing modulations for more "tension-and-release." I made a Chord Library for Sonar that was far more primitive but provided a similar functionality in terms of being able to take songwriting into places I normally didn't go. This is way better.

I think the potential of this new feature has not been truly understood yet. It is what Audio Bend was for rhythm, a new paradigm for harmony. The fact that your old melodic libraries are now much more useful is an unexpected bonus. This coupled with what you will soon see in ARA2 from people like Celemony represents a whole new way of crafting your song.

(Cross post. Was told to post here instead of another thread.)

How do you tell Studio One if it detected a chord wrong? Is there a way to manually define chord for an event?

I'm trying to use this feature with arps and have a simple D minor up arp (D-F-A, D-F-A, ...) going for four bars, which works well, but when I move just one A note to Bb, it interprets the whole four bar sequence as A#maj7 and thus it doesn't work at all anymore. Does studio one just look for which notes are used or is there some algorithm which tries to guess chord in a more complex manner?

First thoroughly read the handbook. Literally, study and try each section. Most of it is answered in there.
1) There is a lot of depends and variables in the answers to your questions.
2) Yes please read the handbook.
3) Many variables here. Best you use pictures. The quick answer you can split up chord segment per the harmonies and redetect
4) Too many dependencies here to any your question. If you are talking about instruments, a new chord is not detected until it finds the next three note starts. (again in the handbook)

Best to use animated gifs or video clips to demonstrate the question.

Hope that helps.

Is there something I need to enable in order to hear what chords are being selected in the Chord Selector? I'm hear nothing, even though I do hear chords in the piano roll. Just not the Chord Selector. I've looked through the 10 page booklet but didn't see anything about this.

Thanks.

Quick answer. No

First on their list of improvement in near updates.
I describe the workaround:
In the interim always have it on an instrument track and Input enable then you can loop a chord to audition the changes or just play it on your keyboard while it detects your input.

Thanks for the PDF. I really like this idea. More PDF's on individual elements of S1. Would like to see comping, Project page, midi editor, audio editor, etc. Great job.

I've read it a few times now, thanks. I'm using instrument tracks (ie midi, not audio).

Maybe I was just waiting for it to work different than it does, but I guess it only works with chords (hence the name :)).

Would've been cool to be able to assign a root note to a sequence and then let Studio One move that sequence with chord track according to root note.

It does shift the chord to whatever root you want.

There are 3 follow mode fro Instruments.
Each will shift it differently.
Play with just one or two chord int a loop and learn how it shifts.
The algorithms are defined in the manual.
It has to find at least 3 and will shift no more than 4 simultaneous notes.

Yes, but it works with proper chords only.

See the attached image, I have an arp that plays Dm until at the end there is one note out of the chord. If there was a way to tell studio one "this is a Dm chord" it might be able to understand that it must not touch it when the chord track plays Dm and transpose that whole sequence properly to other chords when needed, that one "off note" would be moved in relation to the chord.

Now, when I turn on chord follow for that track, it doesn't understand it at all.

So I'm saying (or have now understood) that it works with 100% exact chords only.

I'm not yet finding a place for this in my workflow if there is no way to incorporate melodies, harmonies or so. I know they couldn't always transpose perfectly anyway, but for sketching purposes this would be cool and if you could print/render the chords after you are set, you could make the final adjustments to everything that didn't quite match.

Thanks for the the work. I have been trying to get an answer from Presonus on this but so far nothing, perhaps you can help.

How can Chord track tuning be change to reflect alternative tunings? I tune down a half step and also use drop D tuning at times as well as some open tunings and I would like when I play a E for it show as a E not Eb. Is there anyway to change the tuning without affecting the picth going back up a half step?

I think you mean change key but not the actual data. No, but please add an FR.

In the case of dropped tuning you are playing an Eb
