2. CHORDS

For our chords, we decided to have a bank of 6 - 7 chords, some major, minor, dominant and diminished. To create the banks, we first needed to work out which notes appeared together in each chord, since cycle can only produce 1 pitch at a time. Here is a list of some of the chords used in the patch.

The first step was to figure out which MIDI numbers were used in the chords:

52 53 54 55 56 57 58 59 60 61 62 63 64 65 66

67 68 69 70 71 72 73 74 75 76 77 78 79 80 81

The next stage was to create a list showing which numbers could not be in the same list:

MIDI No. List of matching notes
52 56 57 59 60 64
53 57 60 62 64 65
55 57 59 60 61 62 64
56 52 59 64
57 52 55 60 61 64
59 52 55 56 62 64
60 52 53 55 57 64 65 67 69 71
61 55 57 64
62 53 55 57 59 65
64 52 53 55 56 57 59 60 61 62 65 67 68 69 71 76
65 53 57 60 62 64 67 69 71 74
67 60 64 65 69 71 74 76
68 64 71 76
69 60 64 65 67 71 72 74 76
70 74 77 81
71 60 64 65 67 69 74 76
72 69 76
74 65 67 69 70 71 77 81
76 64 67 68 69 71 72
77 70 74 81
81 70 74 77

Finally, from this list, we were able to determine the following groupings:

52 53 55 69 70

56 57 67

59 60 61 74 76

62 64 77

65 68 81

71 72
