Chord Memory

This LSSP module stores and outputs an S-Poly signal that can be used to represent either chords or scales. When a patch is saved and reloaded the stored signal persists. Its purpose is to allow you to easily create customized chords and scales.

Chords or scales can be recorded using an external MIDI keyboard or via the CHORD IN socket or they can be manually entered with mouse clicks on the built-in keyboard.

Chords or scales using up to 15 notes can be stored.

The built-in keyboard also enables recorded chords or scales to be edited.

The AUTO IN and AUTO OUT sockets allow multiple Chord Memory modules to be chained together to form an easy to use polyphonic step recorder. You can capture a chord progression simply by clicking on the first RECORD button and playing the chords on your MIDI keyboard.

At the top left there’s an editable text label that you can use to help identify what the module is storing.

Typically the CHORD OUT signal will be patched to a Progression module or used as pitch quantization input for a Melody Sequencer or a Pitch Adjuster.

In addition to the CHORD OUT signal a standard 1 V/Octave BASS OUT signal is provided that tracks the pitch of the lowest note in the chord or scale. You could use this control voltage perhaps to transpose a sequence.
