IOS programmable controller - single pad chords?


Senior Member

I have a ton of custom TouchOSC templates that I've made for myself, and despite having USB / hardware keyboards, etc, the templates are so customized to my workflow that I end up doing most of my VI writing there.

The one piece that's missing that I would love to have is the ability to program and play chords from a single pad. As far as I can tell (and correct me if I'm wrong) you can't use a single TouchOSC 'pad' to play more more than one note at a time. I'd love to be able to create some templates by key with a large number of chords available in different inversions and octaves.

So, 2 questions I guess:
1) Can TouchOSC do this? I don't think so, but if so, how?
2) Are there other programmable iOS controllers you're aware of that could be used to do this?

Thanks in advance!

Not just TouchOSC, I'm interested in anything that could do it on iOS. Checking these out now

There is reChorder from Arts Unmuted but it is Lemur based. http://www.artsunmuted.com/rc/rc.html
They are working on a new version that will let you input your own cchords. I use this a lot for chord layout.
There is this as well but I haven't used it.
I know you are asking for TouchOSC but I thought I would throw these out in case anyone else might be interested.

I think that you should definitely have a look at Lemur.
Not only there's good offer from third part developpers, but they also've got lots of free projects from them community.
It offers a lot more re: creating your own project offering a lot more on the programmable side.

yeah, both nChord and reCHORDER look awesome! A bit pricey for nChord, but it looks pretty deep. both seem pretty much what I was looking for. I should really learn how to do the work in Lemur, I'm a programmer by day :)
