Create Chord Progressions, Now

Playing chord progressions has never been easier in Ableton Live.
Watch the video to see how you can quickly create and manipulate chords using our Chord Devices.

Special Features

The difference between playing chords on a guitar and a keyboard

Play It Like A Guitar,
Play It Like A Keyboard

A C Maj chord on the guitar does not sound the same as a C Maj chord on the piano. To ensure your chords sound authentic, we created separate Devices that accurately model the voicings of these instruments.

Always Stay In Key

Each preset comes with Major, Minor and Minor Harmonic versions to give you access to all the important chords in every key. Use the “Key” and “Transpose” macros to shift between keys at any time.
