How do you do inversions in the Chord section?March 9, 2020 at 4:23am
Hi, Really like the concept of this app. I can see its still early days and believe there is great possibilities.
Is it possible to do inversions or are you using automatic inversion? If so how are you inverting the chords?
In the arpeggio track I have notes 1-11 but it would be good to know how these 12 notes + the 3 bass notes pertain to the selected chord.
Bass notes look like they are root, 5th, root +1 octave or a 7th if selected. For slash chords the bass note only seems to appear in the bass section.
In C Major a CMajor 7th chord appears to have notes from 1-11 EGBC EGBC+1 octave EGB+2 octaves. Which suggests there is some automatic inversion happening.
It would be good for example to know where the root note of the chord is in the arpeggio.

Hi! Sorry for a very late reply. Yes, mapping of arpeggio pattern to the corresponding chord is performed automatically and different chords can give you different chord inversions in the rows above the Bass rows. It is designed this way to achieve smooth transition between any possible chords. If the app simply constructed all chords from the root, there would be very wide pitch jumps for some chord pairs. I thought about adding labels to the arpeggio events but decided that it will look clumsy especially when you zoom out and the events became very small.
