The Kickstarter project for the KordBot Music Production Assistant raised $178,655, with 736 backers.

KordBot is described as a ‘music production assistant that combines a chord generator, arpeggiator and step sequencer In one unit.’ It has 32 built-in chord types including inversions for each, with another eight user-banks for storing custom chord types.

The project met and exceeded its funding goals, making it possible for the developers to add additional features, including a color screen and an SD card slot. 

Here’s the official intro video:

The developers have a target to ship the Kordbot to backers in September 2016. See the project site for details and updates.

    1. If one don´t need the chord spread feature, Korg´s Taktiles and Electribes make the Kordbot completely redundant IMO. The Taktiles have an excellent Chord Scale function that automatically generates chords according to the key and scale that one specify. By using this in conjunction with the arpeggiator and the Touch Scale function of the touch pad, one can finish entire songs. You can also assign chords that you yourself play. If you want the chords to be recorded into a step sequencer, use Electribe 2 or Electribe 2S. They both have the chord engine inside, too.

  1. As a teaching tool for your keyboard playing, it would be so much better if it had white and black keys, not just black.

  2. Another software solution: Sundog Scale Studio -> http://feelyoursound.com/sundog/

    Chord features: List the most important chords of any scale; spread chords; build user banks; find inversions; create whole chord progressions;…
    Song features: Let your instruments follow the chord progressions (full chords or arpeggios); create different song parts; fully MIDI compatible; export chords and melodies as MIDI files; swing support; polyrhythmic and polymetric compositions;…

    Full disclosure: I am the dev behind Sundog 😉
