Re: Finding chords for a melody

Sat Nov 09, 2019 9:06 am

This is an Audio-To-MIDI of a Duduk solo I found on the internet.
I forgot to bookmark where I got it.

But this video shows me just using this Logic Pro X script to harmonize a melody using chord formulas from D Spanish Phrygian II

This is me just playing an improv and later I found out that I played in two different keys, after I decided to stick with the Ionian scale.

While I sincerely appreciate the potential value of tools like these, "for a composer in a hurry," I frankly would caution you to avoid too much reliance on them ... if you're trying to use them to "guide you through unknown waters for which you do not have a chart." Computers can be terrific time-savers when they "do the routine math for you," but they cannot hear, and they [still ...] cannot think. Remember that. If you don't yet understand the underlying theory, please take the time to learn. Only then will you be able to leverage computerized tools in the way that their designers intended.

You're more than welcome to post your music on this thread and explain "music theory" on how you see it. :mrgreen:
