ChordPolyPad giveaway – 20 copies of MIDI chord generator app up for grabs

Download from iTunes App Storechordpolypad logoI reviewed the ChordPolyPad app here on the Music App Blog last week. Given my less-than-brilliant keyboard skills, apps like ChordPolyPad have always interested me as they provide a viable alternative for getting basic MIDI chord sequences into my synths or recording software (on my iPad or my desktop computer).

And while there are a number of other iOS apps that can now be used for this function (like ChordionSoundPrism Pro and Synthecaster, for example), ChordPolyPad is most definitely worth a look. Of these other three app, it is perhaps most similar to Chordion in concept but, whereas Chordion takes a ‘less is more’ approach (and is therefore very easy to get started with), ChordPolyPad, while requiring a little more effort to initially learn and configure, perhaps has more powerful features under the hood.

If you haven’t yet tried ChordPolyPad, thanks to the generosity of developer Laurent Colson, now might be your chance. Laurent has kindly provided me with 20 copies of the app to give away here on the Music App Blog.

As usual with the giveaways I run on the blog, the deal is simple; get your name in the hat and see if it gets pulled out.

You can enter the draw in one of two ways.

  • First, if you just want to enter this draw, then use the Contact Us page to leave your details before 10 pm (GMT) on Friday, February 14th, 2014. Make sure to enter ‘ChordPolyPad’ in the message subject line.
  • Alternatively, if you want to get included in this – and every future app giveaway run on the site – then sign up for the Music App Blog email list before the deadline. All members of the list will automatically be entered in every draw. You can sign up here and, as a bonus for signing up, you also get a copy of the Music App Blog’s ‘25 iOS music apps to get you started‘ guide. And if you are already signed up for the email newsletter, then consider yourself entered :-)

As soon as I can organise after entries close, I’ll draw a suitable number of names at random from all those entered. I’ll then notify the lucky winners by email and include the details required to download your free copy. I’ll also post a list of the winners here. If you are one of the lucky ones, do make sure to download ASAP – iTunes Redeem Codes generally have a relatively short life span once they have been issued.

You can read a full review of ChordPolyPad here. If you can’t wait for the draw to give it a try, then click on the appropriate link to purchase and download the app from iTunes but, if you want to be in with a chance of winning a free copy, get in touch or join the email list before the deadline.

Good luck :-)

    1. Ooh an app I don’t have and would like – yes please :-D

    2. Just as a side note,,,,,
      This is one of those apps I always stop to look at when browsing the store, but never pulled the trigger on it. I don’t know why, since doing chord progressions on a small touch screens isn’t the easiest task in the world. I do have Soundprism Pro, Polychord and Chordion, which all does the chord thing. But the ability to assign modulations to the X/Y on the pads here seem like it would open up a lot more expressive possibilities (and there’s also some kind of strum mode believe?).

      • Hi Chris…. it is probably closer to Chordion than Soundprism pro is terms of what it is trying to do but is deeper in terms of how you can configure it. The X-Y modulation options are great as it the ability to assign pads to different MIDI destinations. The ‘strum’ mode simply allows you to ‘stagger’ the notes in the MIDI chord when you hit a pad…. note really a guitar-like strum (well, only in it’s most simple form) but still useful. I’ll still be using Chordion as well as this though…. Chordion is just easier to fire up, configure and hit a few chords. ChordPolyPad is deeper – and therefore more powerful – but takes a longer to configure as a consequence. Both are great though….

        • Yea I was actually going to ask about how fast you’ll get things going with it, since, as you said, it really is a lot deeper, and you kinda have to “program” one pad at a time as I understand it. While Chordion (also the other ones for that matter) is just really fast to fire up and start dabbling away, which from a mobile aspect is pretty important. Home chillin in the sofa/bed or in front of your computer DAW, it’s obviously a different matter.
