Stop control bar from displaying chord names?

Sat Apr 17, 2021 9:50 pm

I find it distracting to see the control bar displaying chord names (I know what I'm playing). Is there a way to turn off chord name display? Couldn't find such an option in the control bar setting window.

You can turn off the MIDI activity display, but as far as I know there's no way to stop it from using chords as the method to show multiple MIDI in messages at once.

Indeed there's no way to turn off automatic-chord-detection. To turn off the monitor, click the little down-arrow symbol to the right of your LCD display and choose customize the Control bar and Display, then deselect MIDI Activity (In/Out):

Yes, turning off MIDI activity did the trick. When I was comping fast on the keys, the chord display looked like a flashing white light. That's why I wanted to turn it off :)
