Indicating root notes in chord symbols

You can indicate the root note of chord symbols when inputting chord symbols with a MIDI keyboard.


  1. In Write mode, open the chord symbols popover.
  2. Indicate the root note of a chord symbol in any of the following ways when using a MIDI keyboard:
    • First play the root with one finger, and then play the remaining notes of the chord while still holding down the root.

    • Play all the notes of the chord together, then release them all, then replay the root note.


      To input a chord symbol that consists only of the root note, just play a single note.
