By Martian Storm Ltd.
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Chord Detector is an app that will analyse audio sources and automatically detect the musical chords within it.
With Chord Detector you can learn to play any track in your devices music library or Dropbox folder providing its not DRM encoded.
Chord Detector can also analyse and detect the chords within a YouTube video or a SoundCloud sound.
Chord Detector is aimed at musicians of any ability to help you learn to play many more songs, especially those whose chords aren't readily available on the internet.
With our update Chord Detection engine its now much quiker and easier to get most accurate results possible (up to 95% in ideal conditions). Chord Detector can recognise many different chord types including major, minor, augmented, dimimished, diminished7, dominant7 and minorMajor7.
To get started just pick one of the four audio source options:
● iPod Music Library
You can then select any track from your iPod Music Library(†), Dropbox folder, select a YouTube video or a SoundCloud sound. Chord Detector will then analyse the selected music source and within minutes (if not quicker) you will be presented with a view of the detected chords containing within that music source.
You have the option to view the detected chords in two different forms, scrolling and tabular. In both of these views you are able to play the track and the chords will move or be highlighted as the song is playing.
You can now start to view the chords of a track when analysis is still ongoing. Also you can queue up tracks to be processed, so while you are learning to play one song the chords are being generated for your other tracks in the background.
The following controls are available on the chord view screens:-
● Play/Pause - play or pause the track.
● Rewind 30s - rewind the track by 30 seconds.
● Forward 30s - forward the track by 30 seconds.
● Tempo Adj. - slow down the track without affecting the pitch by a variable amount down to 1/4 of its original speed.
● Capo Adj. - transpose the chords according to which fret you want your capo on
Now ukulele, banjo and mandolin chord diagrams are available via an in-app purchase.
† The following audio file formats are supported, MP3, AAC, WAV and AIFF. DRM protected content is not supported. Tracks must by sync'd to your device. If you use iTunes Match you must ensure that the track you wish to use in Chord Detector is first downloaded to your device (otherwise you may see a DRM warning)
What's New in Version 1.2.11
iOS 8 and iPhone 6+ bug fixes
Not usefull even on simple pieces
Im a intermediate guitar player and wanted help with picking up some standard tunes. Nothing too exotic. This app tries. But just isnt accurate enough to be useful. Maybe if it gave the key sig. for the song i could fix its errors as i go along but it doesnt.
So maybe if theres a slow recording of a single acoustic guitar track playing very very simple chords no faster than half notes i will open it?
Good idea though.
I'm a beginner (2yrs) and I had a lot of hard time to guess notes of songs. It helped me a lot and I think it can be a useful tool for any beginner who can't guess notes just by listening the song. Thanks for the app!!
Good app to practice lead guitar!
I love this app because I be able to practice lead guitar accurately. I just solo along the song and land the right notes based on the chords this app shows. I am sure it is not correct 100% but it does the job for me!
