MIDI harmonizer

midiharmAfter experimenting with the MAX platform from Cycling74, I finally released my first application: the MIDI real-time harmonizer. With the MIDI harmonizer you can convert any note you play on your keyboard, EWI or controller into a 4-note chord in real-time. An amount of surprise can be brought into play by allowing different chord types to be generated every time you hit a note.


You can read all about it in the Tools section.


About me

I like music, especially making music. I listen to a lot of different stuff, but I like soul, jazz and fusion music most. I like to develop and experiment with tools to make music performance and improvisation on the spot more exciting. It is fun when unexpected musical things happen during a performance!

In recent years I developed the MIDI real-time Harmonizer, a tool for generating harmonized chords when playing a solo line. Inspired by the work of saxophonist Michael Brecker, I started to develop this tool to run on Mac and PC. Brecker played the Electronic Wind Instrument and used the Oberheim Xpander synth to generate random chords from an EWI solo line. Now you can accomplish the same thing with the MIDI real-time Harmonizer driving your own favourite (plugin) synths.
