Prawie dwa lata temu na tych łamach opisywałem poprzednią wersję Chord-O-Mata. Od tego czasu wtyczka ta stała się moim podstawowym narzędziem w procesie komponowania, bo choć na rynku pojawiło się wielu nowych graczy, takich jak choćby Scaler czy InstaChord, to żaden z nich nie oferuje tak ścisłej integracji z Live’em i Pushem, nie wspominając o prostocie obsługi.

Die Bedienung ist wirklich einfach und intuitiv gelöst. Akkord anklicken oder über eine Taste eines Eingabegeräts eintriggern und dann per Mausklick auf ein Pad platzieren. Ein weiteres Plus ist die Möglichkeit, den Chord über den Touchstrip von Push als Einzelnoten abspielen zu können. Das erzeugt Gitarren-ähnliches Anschlagen der Noten.
