Chord symbols rendering/realization workflow

• Mar 16, 2016 - 09:03

Hi, I would please like to hear what users would like a in a feature for rendering chord symbols to a staff.

I was thinking that there could be a "special" rhythm staff linked to a "regular" staff and a menu entry in Tools - in the same spirit as "Explode" and "implode" - for "printing" your chords to the main staff.

At this point the user would be presented with a menu for tuning the finer details of the process; a few different rule sets might be (possibly at some point in the future) included.

I have attached a few screenshots of what the process might look like.

I would love to hear some feedback from users.

Look at the others.

Finale seems to have only chord playback. Not sure how they do it and it does seem to be customizable.……

The chord realization seems to be a completely different beast…

Sibelius can add a staff with chords written as notes. The UI reveals how it works.…

It's probably interesting to look to the opposite direction Analysis, music to chordnames…
It's a popular request in MuseScore too. There are a couple of plugins that try to do it.
