"ChordPolyPad" is a MIDI chords player that allows you to create chord sets from a large internal library, from any combination of notes, or from chords generated randomly. Each set consists of 8 groups of 16 pads, or 2 groups of 64 pads.
In addition to play chords, each pad can generate customizable MIDI controls on its horizontal and vertical axis.

I could easily imagine using ChordPolyPad in a live context. With a pad preset ready to recall for each song and that ‘full screen’ pad view option, it would be a very neat tool. However, for me, the app is going to find itself well used alongside my other MIDI performance apps both for iPad-based and desktop-based MIDI recording duties. ChordPolyPad is a brilliant tool with a well thought-out interface and, if your keyboard playing sucks as badly as mine, it comes highly recommended.
