Chordify has been released during the Noorderslag Festival in Groningen (The Netherlands). Chordify detects the chords of popular songs. This is not only useful for cover bands, but also for finding interesting chord progressions for your own compositions.
Chordify can find chords of songs on Soundcloud or YouTube, or songs uploaded from your computer. While the detected chords are shown, the video runs just along. You can also create a loop of a song section. That’s very useful to exercise a piece that you have not yet mastered, or to take a look at the chords of a certain part of the song.
Guitarists can also view the guitar diagrams of the detected chords. It would be great if Chordify also created a MIDI file of the chords for import into a sequencer on the computer. But even without a MIDI feature, it is really a nice tool for musicians and composers.
