In this free video tutorial, Russ shows the amazing power of the Chord Track in Studio One 4. He shows how it can identify the key and chords of an audio track and more!
Far more than just a simple chord track for note data, Studio One 4’s Chord Track works with Instrument Tracks (and draft audio tracks) for fast, efficient, multi-dimensional Chord Track arranging and transpositions. It’s the ideal tool for songwriting and “prototyping” music: modulate easily to different keys, try out chord progression variations, even experiment with the unexpected to break free of creative blocks. Harmonic Editing gives you freedom for trying out harmonies, transpositions, and chord progressions.
An ingenious Chord Selector makes it easy to experiment with new chord patterns and ideas, and you can change chords in real time from an external MIDI controller to try out chord progressions on the fly. Transfer chord data from a track to the Chord Track—which automatically detects the chords you played—or from the Chord Track to other tracks, all with a simplified, intuitive workflow.
Harmonic Editing is part of Studio One’s ongoing commitment to streamline the songwriting and music creation process. Coupled with an Arranger track that makes it easy to move sections of songs around and Scratch Pads for trying out new ideas independently of your existing work, Studio One is now the most flexible program ever for testing out new song ideas. And for collaboration with other musicians, Studio One’s improved integration with Notion 6.4 simplifies printing in standard music notation with the new Create Lead Sheet option.
