Join Mark Struthers for an in-depth discussion in this video Develop song ideas with Chord Pads, part of Learning Cubase Pro 8.
- I want to extend what we saw…at the end of the last movie,…when we looked at Chord Pads.…The implementation of Chord Pads…allow us to play chords…and to change their voicing's intentions.…Additionally, in terms of harmonies and rhythms,…they allow for a spontaneous approach to composition.…Once we have Chord Pads running,…and we'll see this in a second,…you'll find the Chord Pad zone…at the bottom of the project window.…So to open the function, one way is to select Project,…and then run down to Chord Pads,…noticing the shortcut…Ctrl, or Cmd, Ctrl + Shift + C.…
And then now we see the Chord Pads function…running across the foot of our project window.…And despite its size, we see it laid out…like a piano keyboard.…Each individual pad there, representing a keyboard note,…triggers a particular chord, a chord pad.…With this default setup, for example,…we'll see all the bottom pads there…representing the white notes on a keyboard.…If you played a C note on your keyboard,…then you will trigger a C major,…and that will be driving through…
