I need a VST plug-in for one-finger chords

Postby The Elf » Wed Jan 11, 2017 6:32 pm

I'm looking for a VST plug-in that will let me assign multiple MIDI notes to a single key press and send the resulting notes to another VST instrument.

I tried Chordz (http://www.codefn42.com/chordz/index.html), which almost does what I need, but it seems to be limited to 12 chords per instance, which is far too limited (albeit I realise that I could use multiple instances to get around this - at a push).

Can anyone suggest something like Chordz, but with the ability to assign many more note patterns across a keyboard? 64-bit ideally.

Ta!

...never tried it, but I was curious to read this about Xfer Cthulhu:

"One Note Becomes Many. Cthulhu is firstly a chord memorizer and player, allowing you to experiment with creating and reworking chord progressions with single-note presses. Included are over 150 factory chord presets allowing for a near-unlimited amount of possible musical-sounding chord progressions."

They make a great drum machine called Nerve.

This one is looking the winner so far:

Doesn't the Cubase Chorder plug-in do this?

It would seem it does, but The Elf's 'midiChords' appears to do a lot more, judging by the fact that it 'Imports Cubase/Nuendo Chorder .xml presets.'

It's also incredible value for money ;)

I also need this plug to be available outside of Cubase.

I'm happy with the one I mentioned above. It does the job nicely.

In a similar vein, and hopefully therefore not a completely shameless thread hijack, I'd be interested in a plug-in that takes polyphonic MIDI information in a track and can distribute it monophonically round robin style over multiple VST instruments if such a thing exists. Basically I want to try and coax the monophonic Roland Promars plug-in into behaving like a sort of polyphonic virtual Jupiter 4.
