Chordion makes it easy to play common chord changes in any key. In "auto" mode, Chordion's keyboard follows the chords you play, letting you strum up and down or effortlessly pluck out melodies. The built-in drum machine & arpeggiator help you keep the beat.
More experienced users will love the wide range of customization options - from the layout of chords to synthesis parameters to exotic scales. Chordion's built-in synthesis engine is highly tweekable and easy to use - create echoing lead lines, shimmery chimes, and dreamy drones. Chordion also supports MIDI, allowing you to control other instruments using Chordion's unique interface.
We appreciate your support!
Requires iOS 6 or above.

Very nice but has the unpleasant habit of resetting and losing the current setting on device lock/unlock. Such a letdown. Apart from that annoying glitch, it's a tremendously fun instrument. Highly recommended, provided you save often. Make sure you check out the cloud presets. Some gems in there.
Great idea....in theory
Sadly, this app is let down by incredible sluggishness when sending MIDI to external synths. Timing gets really sloppy, often it just freezes. It works fine with the internal sounds but they are nothing special.
