Join Mark Struthers for an in-depth discussion in this video Building musical sequences with the Chord Track, part of Up and Running with Cubase Pro 8.
- When remixing a song,…one issue could be you don't know the chord sequences…used in the composition.…So, adding your own instrumentation…without the original MIDI files…can be problematic.…Here then, I'll show you a Cubase function…that helps resolve this issue.…I'll talk about the Chord Track function.…First though, to help determine what chords are played,…I'll look at tools available in the MIDI editors.…Now, to make this easy for myself,…I've stripped down the project…to just the Piano and Vocals.…
As it's playing, I'm going to open…a couple of the MIDI editors…so that we can see that we can possibly…work out the chord patterns…by the Piano notes utilized.…I'm not going to play the whole song.…I'm just going to play this one section…in cycle mode.…So, here goes.…(soft piano music and singing)…Okay, we saw a couple of the MIDI editors there,…so we could work out the chords played…by the notes on display.…
But, there is an easier way.…Now what I'm about to show you…can be achieved in other editors,…but for variety, I'll open up the Score Editor.…
