Chord Entry

Chord Entry

Postby robmclark » Mon Jun 09, 2014 7:55 am

Unless I am missing something- is there no way to actually enter chords into the staff more quickly than note for note?

I see a chord section but that is to annotate above the staff and doesn't seem to interact with the staff. Surely there is a faster way to enter chords?

Welcome to the forum.

You can play them in with the piano keyboard, but, as you say, that's still note by note.

If you want to tap a single key, and have a 3-note chord appear, no, you can't do that.

Use the keyboard, tap the chord button and the pencil. Play the chord on the keyboard. iPad is multi-touch, so you don't have to do it one note at a time
