Chords for Jazz improvisation

• May 24, 2023 - 05:37

I want to add the chord names to a number of scores, all involving multiple instruments in different keys. This is as an aid to player's improvising. I don't want to hear the keys in playback. What I would like to do is add the chord names in one part and for them to appear in all parts, transposed as required.

Is this possible?


Go to the mixer (F10 or View→Mixer) and mute any track that's labelled "Chords.[instrument name]". Copy-and-pasted chord symbols will still automatically transpose based on the pasted part's settings.

You can enter the chords once. and then copy and paste them to the other instruments, and they will be automatically transposed where required.

To just copy the chords, either do right click and select all similar in selection. Or use the selection filter.
