If you're like me and struggle to find your way around harmonies and melodies on a keyboard, then this device is for you.

Use and modify preset chords or create custom ones, pluck notes of the chord manually, and use 3 octaves of "free play" keys to always play in key. Can be used with or without a controller. Includes mapping profiles for grid controllers, keyboard controllers (white keys), or create your own mapping.

More info and video here

  • 32 chord slots - use preset chords or create your own.
  • change chord type, inversion, add bass notes, spread, and change octave.
  • when creating custom chords, keyboard will highlight notes in the selected key and scale
  • copy and paste settings from one chord slot to another
  • 3 octaves of "free play" keys for playing melodies on top of chords, in the selected key and scale
  • 8 additional triggers for plucking notes of the active chord
  • strum option for adding strumming motions to the chords
  • use with Push, Launchpad, or create a custom mapping for any other MIDI controller
  • chord slots can also be triggered with the mouse
Only $10.

V1.1 update for Apollo Chord Designer M4L device is now available. If you purchased, please look out for update email with download links.
  • Added enable/disable buttons for each of the 3 layers (chords, free play, pluck). They can be found by the layer octave transposition number boxes on the right. Can be useful for turning layers on/off, when sequencing the device from a MIDI clip.
  • Added Trigger Selected On Play option. Enable this if you want the selected chord to automatically play when you start transport.
  • Chords can now also be copied between devices (only when both source and target devices are version 1.1 or higher).
