The online Chord Generator is an application for identifying all the possible chords in a selected scale, serving up a tonne of classic tones. And saving you a shitload of time.

It’s a perfect tool for songwriting, or trying to smash through some writer’s block. Need to resolve that pesky progression in F# Ionian? Hit that shit with an E# diminished 5th and an added 9th! Why didn’t you think of that before, dude?

There are two main sets of controls for the online Chord Generator. The top main set is labelled ‘Choose a scale to find the chords it contains’, which allows the user to select a scale for analysis.

  • Key – This sets the main note for the scale. Users can choose from C, C♯, D♭ and all up to B.
  • Scale – This sets the scale under study. There is a wide list to choose from such as Major, Dorian (a mode of the Major), Harmonic Minor, and all the weird shit too.
