Harmonize a melody but now I can choose between different chord formulas.

Since I did this video, I'm updating the script to allow up to 5 different chord formulas, but the drop down list will contain 166 different chord formulas that I found on the internet.

I sometimes use this one when I feel that 'finger memory' wants to take over if you know what I mean. http://www.mathieurouthier.com/suggester_ios/

Now I've updated my script to select up to 5 chord formulas to get randomly picked when a chord position has been reached.

Another demo of harmonizing a melody using random chord formulas based on the first note at a chord position.

Created this demo with the following setup.
verse - D Altered, harmonized with random m6/maj chord formulas.
chorus - B Youlan China, harmonized with maj7 chord formula.

First I play both melodies naked, then I play them with the accompanying music following the generated chord progressions.

One thing that I'll point out as well. Like a Chinese boat, junk in, junk out.
The melody should have a musical flow to it, otherwise adding chords won't help, it'll just sound bad.

This is an Audio-To-MIDI of a Duduk solo I found on the internet.
I forgot to bookmark where I got it.

But this video shows me just using this Logic Pro X script to harmonize a melody using chord formulas from D Spanish Phrygian II

This is me just playing an improv and later I found out that I played in two different keys, after I decided to stick with the Ionian scale.
