Okay, this may be a little strange, but what the hey.
I'm not exceptionally well trained in music theory, though I am working on that, nor am I a pianist. Once I've developed a melody, I have to locate the accompanying chords fairly laboriously. I look at the Circle to find chords that may match, then I play them in my notation software to see how they sound with the melody. Lots of backing and filling going on.
But I'm a software developer by trade, so I figured this HAS to be a problem that software can handle. And in fact, the recent posting about Songsmith seems to incorporate something along these lines. I'm looking for software that can take a melody line in a midi file and produce chording suggestions based on the Circle of Fifths. Ultimately, I want the choice of what goes, but I'd like to have the program offer chording options and then play them for me. I'm not looking for software to actually do all the work, just one that helps me select appropriate chords to go with my melody. Software, in other words, to help me do what I'm currently doing, but mfaster and more efficiently.
Anybody know of such software?
