Chord Memorizer by Max for Cats

Sorry! Our webshop is currently under construction. Back on January 02, 2016.

Purchased courses and packs are still available from the user accounts.

The Live Pack now also contains the Max for Live MIDI effect Chord Transposer and is a free upgrade for all current users.

Chord Memorizer

The Chord Memorizer is a Max for Live MIDI effect by Max for Cats. It lets you easily create, play and store MIDI chords for chord progressions and chord patterns. Each key can store any chord!


It can be used to play chords with the left hand while playing melodies with the right hand, or simply to trigger 'impossible' chords. Once the Chord Memorizer is fed with your chords, you can save all settings as an individual preset. This way you can access as many stored chord progressions as you wish.

The Chord Memorizer features two keyboards. The upper keyboard shows the incoming MIDI notes while the lower keyboard displays the stored chords (= outgoing notes). Depending on the THRU switch settings, notes which are not mapped to a specific chord will be passed through or not.

Of course, the Chord Memorizer can also be placed in an Ableton Live MIDI Effect Rack where you can create key or velocity zones, chains and so on.

Chord Transposer

Chord Transposer - the One-Finger-Chord-Wonder - is the perfect addition to the Chord Memorizer.‬ While the Chord Memorizer lets you store different chords on single keys, the Chord Transposer lets you record, re-trigger and transpose a chord with a single key press. This function is crucial to modern (dance) music, especially when used with an Arpeggiator. The origin of this function derives from some vintage synths such as the Korg Polysix, the Korg Mono/Poly, the Roland Alpha Juno series and a few others.
