Can't wait to pick this up. Loved my old Chord but it was just too big.

I am favorably impressed.

Q: in polyphonic mode, do the four jacks v/oct, lead/bass, quality and voicing become the pitch inputs for each voice?

This looks awesome! I'm very intrigued at the possibility of building or breaking down chords by sending those outs to different vcas and opening them at different intervals.

Nice looking & functional layout too

Yes

BASS is now LEAD

Really nice but I wish the sd card were accessible on the front panel.

I like it a lot. Seems to be a well balanced design it terms of features and usability.

I used to think that if I wanted to play chords I would just pull up a softsynth and play on the keyboard, but this module approaches chords from a totally different perspective. It would be great for getting out of a rut and/or learning more music theory.

Does anybody know if this has a built-in quantizer?

Does it have slide functionality and how does the harmonizing react to slides in incoming sequences?

Chord V2 looks pretty awesome, been wanting something like this for a while.

V1 was just absurdly large, this is much more useable!

And it seems like it would pair well with the Sinfonion quantizer since it has 4 independent inputs for polyphony! Looking forward to trying it out.

I'm hoping lots of people start selling their original Chord modules so I can pick one up for cheap. I've been holding off on pulling the trigger.

yah. looks too damn good. ORDERED.

because i'm on Cali like the fine folks at QuBit, it ended up way cheaper to order from Detroit Modular.

do you know when they'll be getting theirs in to ship?

SO TASTY. VERY EXCITE.

lol. i have the same problem with PC. they're awesome, but we're the same state, so i get charged tax. and with coupon codes it can be like a $60 price swing ln a $3 hundy module.

but yesssss. i try to buy Direct From Builder when possible.

Pardon my noob questions, is it possible to use it to control another oscillator modules?
Or maybe connect it to a CV-to-MIDI module so I can control my MIDI devices with it?

Very interested in this module. I see that there is no manual yet for this new version (still the MK1 version on your website). No worries, I'm in no hurry. Only reason I bring this up is that I know that this new version offers the user the ability to program user (microtonal) scales/chords, from what you've said previously. Since this is how I make most of my music now I'd need to see how this is implemented in this updated iteration.

There are now a couple of amazing quantizers that can deal with microtonal scales, and with multiple oscillators, etc, I've been having lots of fun. But this, all in one package, seems like it could offer increased possibilities..

I'm quite sure it will be awesome! Just need more info...

Cheers :guinness:

No, it's an oscillator itself.

Also no. This module outputs audio, not cv. It sounds like you may be looking for a quantizer to send pitch cv to your oscillators?
