Device Overview

Name/Version: NYLON Chord Generator 1.1
Author: cvolm  
Description: Nylon is a chord generator that emulates chord strokes of a guitar. Play up to 6 strings per chord, add dynamics by controlling stroke speed, acceleration and velocity, and humanize each stroke by adding randomness.

Features:
- Control the stroke speed
- Accelerate or decelerate the stroke speed with exponential or logarithmic curve
- Define the increase or decrease of velocity during a chord
- Add randomness to humanize strokes
- Visual representation of chord settings
- Define up to four different chord types and arrange them in an 8-step pattern

WOW. This thing is awesome. Sending midi to my 0-coast. Thank You for this!

Second that... Excellent work cvolm.

Thanks guys, glad you're having fun with it.

Thanks for sharing, wonderful work, clean easy to use S+

I just wanted to say thanks, oh and all of the above. Really looking forward to your next device.

I was looking for a device to emulate keystrokes. In this manner your device does a great job, but I'd like to send in chords on my own, rather than define them. Great stuff would be to generate keystroke from sent in triads and store different types of keystrokes in your pattern memory rather than different chords. In this manner playability would increase much.

Nice.

Great device.
Like a previous poster i would like to send in my own chords and then have the device emulate keystrokes with that. Can you add such a function?

Hey zeep, sending in your own chords and then transforming it into a guitar stroke sure is a good idea. It would be easy to implement for prearranged Midi input, where all chord notes arrive at the same time and can then be distributed in time. But for live performance ? realtime playing of chords from a keyboard ? this is much harder to achieve: Each chord note will arrive with a natural delay, due to human imperfection of hitting the keys at exactly the same time. Output of a guitar stroke however can only be started once the complete chord is there, so the device has to wait for a certain amount of time to collect all the notes. This will introduce latency and make live playing pretty annoying I would assume. But I'll think about it, maybe there is some solution with passing the first note directly and only holding back the following ones...

Hi Cvolm, yes you are absolutely right. Personally i would not use it live!
Like you said, i have quantized midi chords in my project, and i would like to insert NYLON Chord Generator to use the stroking effect.

If it is not too much trouble for you i would love to use that function!
