JochemFor the past few years I’ve been creating tools for home studio musicians who want to improve the quality of their music productions, with a main focus on the art of mastering. I’ve written the book ‘Home Studio Mastering’ and have developed the Noiz-Lab ‘7-Step Mastering’ software bundle. But before that, I’ve composed and produced a lot of music for artists and short films. Writing many songs over the years and thinking about the theory behind them, has made the process of creating music very intuitive to me. It was therefore a lot of fun building our chord generator, and tuning it to generate just the kind of chord progressions I have been drawn to from the day I started playing music. Because its inner workings are partly randomized it managed to surprise me many times already, with great sounding progressions I’d never played before. In that respect I feel our chord generator can be a valuable composing tool that can really help you to think out-of-the-box and inspire you to take your music in exciting new directions.
