Chord generator module

Figured I’d throw this idea here :slight_smile:

Description of feature (short and simple):

Chord generator module. Receives root note and generates other notes to form a chord. Then outputs each notes (including root) separatly. Cv over chord type, maybe voicing.

How will this feature improve the workflow or experience for all SSP users (keep it short and focused):

I think it would be great, especially since the SSP is very capable in terms of polyphony vs “traditional” modular, to have some kind of chord generating module. It could, for example, receive a note (root) and pass it through along with 3-4 generated notes to form a chord. You could then send each of these to a different WTO or Plaits modules or even out to other oscillators in your rack. Having cv control over the chord type would be great too

It would open the possibility to do chords from the step sequencer, cartesian sequencer or other sequencers in your rack.

I would add the ability to generate chords that are within a musical scale…
1 m2 m3 p4 p5 m6 and dim7
For instance, in the key of Cmaj, if a D note is received, it will play a Dmin chord, if a B is received, it will play a Bdim.
