Chordpolypad was and is still my favourite Chords player.
First because of its ease to use, the ability to play any kind of chords (custom chords), even single notes, the Chords library, the X & Y axis, the 8 groups of 16 Pads or 2 groups of 64 Pads, the presets manager...
As I said, it's my favourite Chords player Apps...

I'm sure that you all know StepPolyArp ...
And I'm also sure that it's your favourite sequencer on the App Store... Right?
ChordPolyPad - Midi Chords Player is the new release from Laurent Colson and this new App is simply awesome!
A new reference in this category, the best in this category...
As I always say, playing chords on an iPad is not easy, for this reason, we need an App to help us, that is what this App is for, but ChordPolyPad is more than this...
So, I'll try to describe you the App...
On the main screen, 16 Pads. Below, a Keyboard...
Tap a Pad, Tap one or several keys on the keyboard to create a Chord,Tap again on the Pad to play your Chord. That's all... So simple! Now, you can play your chord (Strumming or not) with a sound from the built in library or with another App or Software in your Computer... That's not all, each Pad can send a Midi message to a different App... It means that you can control 16 machines with this App... No, in fact, it's not quite true... You can control 48 Machines! Why? Because you can assign to each Pad 2 CC on the X and Y axes... Awesome! For example, you can play chords with an App loaded in the input slot of the Audiobus and send CC to another App in the Effect slot...
But there's more!
ChordPolyPad also comes loaded with a chord library and different types of scales which can help you to create your chord progression...
Check out this post and the video demo...
