ChordEase v1.0.13.000

Checker on 25 Mar 2016

ChordEase makes it easier to play music with complicated chords. No matter what the chords are, you can play as if they were all in the key of C. You don't need to play sharps or flats, because ChordEase automatically adds them for you. Although ChordEase is primarily intended for jazz, it could be useful for any type of music that modulates frequently. ChordEase alters your notes in real time in order to make them harmonically correct, while preserving their rhythm and dynamics. By delegating rapid music theory calculations to ChordEase, you gain freedom to concentrate on other aspects of musical performance, such as feel and aesthetics.

The program is a translator that takes MIDI notes as input, and produces MIDI notes as output. The input notes are translated to the current chord scale, so that the output notes fit the chord progression of a song. Supports various mapping functions which determine how the translating is done, can handle multiple translations at once for multiple performers to play through a single instance using any number of MIDI instruments. Parameters can be remotely controlled via MIDI for additional effects and can also record its own output as MIDI data.

Why this program is signed as "NO STEALTH"?

Hi Taf,

That "NO STEALTH" setting is because I created the database entry myself. I tried pretty hard to get it right but apparently not quite. What should it be?

From http://lenmus.blogspot.com.es/2014/07/lenmus-reaches-its-end.html:

"It is with my deepest regret that I have to announce the closure of the LenMus project.After a decade-long run, LenMus is no longer being developed. I began LenMus because I was studying music theory and needed interactive exercises for practicing. At that time (2002) there were no much free software for musicians and music students and I programmed some exercises, especially for ear training. I was soon attracted by the computational problems derived from the complexity of this domain. But world changes very fast and I alone can not do all and move as fast as this requires. I always failed in attracting more developers to the project and the result is that LenMus is increasingly lagging behind the increasing complexity of the project and the fast pace of changes on computers (notebooks, mobile phones), the web (HTML5 interactive applications), and the available teaching materials on the web (videos, free web schools). As I can not do it all alone, all development was stopped five months ago. Probably I will not to resume development again."

What's new?
  • Updated Esperanto, Portugese and Turkish translations to the users manual.
  • Updated Spannish and Turkish messages.
  • Distribute solfege/tests/lesson-files/*.
  • help/C/scales/modes.html are never translated. So we must link to the C-locale file in every translation.
  • gettext tweaks to make the test suite work both when run as "test.py" and "test.py test_lessonfile".
  • There is still something wrong because we have to disable the test to run debuild.
  • Distribute solfege/tests/lib/* and solfege/test/include/*.
