Indicating altered bass notes in chord symbols

You can indicate that chords have altered bass notes when inputting chord symbols with a MIDI keyboard.


  1. In Write mode, open the chord symbols popover.
  2. Indicate which note is the altered bass note of a chord in any of the following ways on your MIDI keyboard:
    • Play all notes of the chord together with the altered bass note at the bottom.

    • Play the chord and its altered bass note separately: Hold down the keys for the chord, then play the altered bass note while keeping the rest of the keys of the chord depressed.
