yeah one thing i've suggested before in that area is having a sort of 'pallet' of chords available in the piano roll so you can paint a bunch of notes with a single click
I would love it if they added something like this. Now I'm curious how close you can get with Max for Live. But something native would be even better.
MIDI effects have Chords and Scales to help with this, of course...and I'm pretty sure there's some Max For Live devices that do this, though it's not the sort of thing I'm into so I don't have any. Integrated would of course be ideal, but for now...
But yeah, MGF, I was expecting them to implement some instant chords feature like Maschine (and I think MPC Live, and probably other DAWs?) has. As relatively simple as I'd imagine it is, I dunno why it wouldn't be included since it's definitely something geared for "Live" usage.
Was curious so I took a cursory glance. Most look to be paid devices. http://maxforlive.co...s-generator-pro http://maxforlive.co...9/chords-in-key http://maxforlive.co...029/chord-o-mat http://maxforlive.co.../chord-explorer Also, Ableton's own site has Max For Live packs: M4L Essentials pack features the Multi device that has built in chords...and the M4L Building Tools pack contains a few MIDI note manipulation devices that may be useful, most obviously MIDI Chord.
I'm sure there's plenty others out there too, and you all may already use these things, but just in case :)
