Liquid Notes comes with a feature that enables you to force a recalculation of a specific area if you want to use different notes for chord reharmonization. By clicking on the 'ReCalc'-button you can force this recalculation to take place.
Find here more information on this feature of our chord progression management software.
Reharmonize a chord in Liquid Notes
When you open a MIDI arrangement or MIDI clips in Liquid Notes, the algorithms perform a harmonic analysis of your entire arrangement. This enables it to determine information relevant for reharmonization of chords, such as chords, chord boundaries, scale, and a number of other items relevant for managing chord progressions. The output of this analysis is then presented in the user interface of Liquid Notes, which consists of a set of main controls for each chord.
There, you'll find a button labelled 'ReCalc'. It sits at the upper part of the rectangular chord boxes which provide the frame for each chord. Clicking on it will force a recalculation of that chord and its adjacent area, enabling you to use different notes for chord reharmonization.
That is, Liquid Notes will look for the closest possible combination of notes to model a chord so that your song is altered as little as possible. Music theory, depending on your particular arrangement, can allow for multiple options to model a chord in accordance with the harmonic structure of your arrangement. Should you not be happy with the result provided after the harmonic analysis is complete or after you made changes to your arrangement, you can click on the 'ReCalc'-button so Liquid Notes provides you with a different set of notes for the same chord.
Pressing the 'ReCalc'-button more than once shows you if other possibilities for modelling of a chord exist.
