Chord learning

Tonespace is an intuitive music keyboard, combined with a chorder. It supports over 50 different grids, 14 scales, 18 keys, 30+ chord types and 10 chord voicings. It can function as a VST or Audio Unit plugin, processing incoming MIDI events and/or generating outgoing MIDI. You don't need to use MIDI though: there is also a standalone executable which contains its own little synth for a fast start.

With Tonespace you can play and visualize chords while you move the mouse around in a grid-like space, learn how musical scales and keys work, and how chords relate to these, using the simple octave-based spaces. You can visually discover how chords map onto surprisingly simple geometric shapes in the more advanced spaces and use the chord-generation algorithm to generate chords from these simple shapes in the advanced spaces.

Mucoder Tonespace Tonespace v 2.0.361 Mar 21, 2011 MacOS X UB
# fixed: updated manual with information on features added since public beta 2.0.294
# new: added pdf manual version
# fixed: mode 'Midi triggers note (modulated)' transposed some notes an octave too low
# fixed: some slight factory preset tweaks
# new: added 'Monads' chord filter option, making it possible to use the chord fitting assist modes also with single notes
# fixed: slow startup of the tonespace UI on OSX 10.6 Snow Leopard
# fixed: Logic revalidating tonespace AU component every time during start up
# fixed: 'none' chord displayed in balzano 3-shape
# fixed: note was not released when mouse up on disabled cell
# fixed: hold notes until next click did not work as users expected
# fixed: crash in Ableton Live on Windows when closing VST gui while tonespace help/about dialog still visible
# new: 'trigger' parameter replaces the 'on midi' parameter and controls when and how cells are triggered (either by mouse and/or by incoming midi notes)
# new: midi triggering offers several variants, including triggering on mouse clicking, mouse hovering or by incoming midi note as in tonespace 1.0
# new: triggering by midi notes can optionally transpose/modulate incoming midi notes from CMajor into the selected scale/key (allows to play 'white keys only' and still generate chords that are in key)
# new: 'on click' parameter replaces the 'mouse' parameter and controls whether chords are released on mouse-up or held until next click
# new: 'assist' parameter offers new chord assist modes, including a mode for fitting chords to a scale/key instead of to the space.
# new: with chord fitting to scale/key: when more than one chord is possible you can either take the best one, cycle through all, or pick a random one for an arpeggio-like effect
# new: 'chord filter' parameter allows to restrict the types of chords that are used by chord assist algorithms. Select between 2, 3 and 4 note-chords. This also reduces the number of chord assist parameter modes, as they longer have to select the chord size
# new: 'voicing' parameter has been extended with new inversion types and open/close modes. The old open/open+/open++ modes are now called spread/spread+/spread++
# new: the currently hovered and/or clicked root cell is now also higlighted, so you always know where you are in the grid, even when using chord voicings with a different root note
# new: last played and estimated next chord names are displayed
