Thanks so much for this Chord Track pdf and so much more that you provide to this community.
So did I understand it correctly that if you don't want all events from a track to follow the chord track, you'll have to copy those events to another track?
It's a nifty tool, but I don't understand why it's track based and not event based. It's unlikely you wouldn't want to chance one or two notes on a whole track right?

Hi guys. Some help would be appreciated regarding the chord track if possible please.
This is my exact process:-
1 Create a midi chord progression on an instrument channel, detect chords and extract to chord channel. Happy so far.
2. Create another instrument channel for a bass line. I add a basic bassline using midi, i then go into the inspector and follow chord track using the bass option. It changes some of the notes mostly to root notes. Im happy with most of the notes its changed but a few i want to change further so i do. Im happy with that.
The chord progression and bass line is say for example an 8 bar loop.
3. I now want to extend the regions so i click the existing bass line region and hit D to duplicate. It duplicates the track, but, the midi notes have reverted to where Studio One put them when i hit follow chords - bass originally, not where i then manually changed them slightly afterwards.
Is there a way, once you've manually moved some notes AFTER you've hit follow chords, for you to maybe reprint the entire MIDI event so it doesn't revert back to the original follow chords placement? I've tried right clicking on the event region and rendering instrument part, that doesn't do anything. Bouncing just turns it to audio.
If i create the pattern how i want it and then turn off follow chords it just changes everything back to how it was to start with.
Im pulling my hair out with this.
I am not familiar with using the chord track, but maybe you need to save your changes and then try to duplicate the part/event?
Just a thought....
a) Before you duplicate, rightmouse click on the Musical Part in which you changed some MIDI Notes.
b) Then choose Musical Functions > Freeze Pitch.
c) Then do the Duplicate.
Does this help ?

Nice one many thanks.
Studio One 5 Pro. Windows 10 64 Bit 4 GB Intel 2 Quad Q 9950 @ 2.83 GHz . Focusrite Scarlett 2i4, NI Komplete Kontrol S61, NI Komplete 12 Ultimate, Izotope Ozone 5 and 8. Yamaha HS 80 Monitors.
I own and use Studio One 5.0 Artist and would love to utilize chord track as I was given an audio file, without a chord chart, that I have to figure out. However, it doesn't seem worth $299 to upgrade to S15 Pro just for that one feature.
I have found Scaler 2 but the interface seems less-than-intuitive to me, especially compared to what I've seen online about S1 Chord Track. Can anyone recommend a plugin, or if necessary, an application that would perform the function of chord detect? Scaler is reasonably priced and it may be the best option. Might just have to spend some time learning it.
If this is the wrong place to post this, happy to move it elsewhere.
Thanks for your help! Love S1!
Are you detecting Audio or MIDI?
I think the new Scaler 2 can detect Audio now but no data on accuracy.
You can also detect chords with the free Melodyne 5 version offers with S1 but I am not sure that comes with Artist.
You can also wait a bit for the demo of S1 Pro.
I use the Scaler 2 plugin as well as the chord track and they really compliment one another especially with the features added between Scaler and Scaler 2.
My humble opinion the Chord Track is a great idea that still needs to be refined. I believe that Scaler 2 is more of what that refinement would look like.
Yes it took a minute to get my head wrapped around it but once I did I’ll never look back.
It’s so great to have all of the alternative interpretations of the related scale as well as modal options for improvisation.
Good explanation of Chord track modes by Gregor.
Gregor demonstrates using the chord track for composing.
