Best chord plugin/Device This is way better than I expected. Really nice layout, easy to use and fits perfectly into my workflow. This will be used on every project even as a safely net or to push inspiration even further. Better than 3 other similar plugins I have tried.

Good Tool Like it. An interesting concept for playing chords if you can't play chords ;-)

Very useful, the interface is a bit stiff but it does what it promises to do!
