You can find a few Midi Chord Packs but most of them are either paid (like the Midi Chord Pack EssentialMidi or Unison) or very limited with a few dozen chords at most.
So I give you My original Chord Pack which is both 100% free and diversified which contains more than 7400 chord files!
You only need your favorite DAW such as Ableton, Logic Pro, Cubase, Pro Tools, Reason or your AKAI MPC. And the .mid files of the pack work with and are playable by any virtual software instrument such as Kontakt, Massive, Xfer Serum, Sylenth1 and more!
Download the ZIP below, no risk to try it, I don't even ask for your e-mail to send you ads 😉!
If you want to support my work, and contribute to the release of other free packs, you can of course support me on my Patreon! 🙏
Can I load chord progressions on my MC-707/101?
Yes! The .mid files can be imported to the Roland MC-707 or 101. Simply extract the MIDI pack zip to your groovebox SD card under
ROLAND/GROOVEBOX/MIDI. Then in Clip mode, select an empty clip and press the 'Value' knob, and choose 'LOAD MIDI'. Browse the content of the card and select your chord progression.
I try to update the Midi Pack regularly when I get suggestions for chords and progressions.
Here is the list of the last modifications:
- Added 5 chord progressions. We now have 105 progressions per key!

- Added the missing m7b9b5 chords
- All chord progressions are now available in 4 rhythmic styles (basic, basic4, alt4, hiphop)
- Added 3 minor chord progressions. All chords are now 1 octave above.
- Fixed the chord progressions with borrowed chords. Added 3 progressions with a bVII chord.
Content of the pack
- A total of 7400 MIDI chords files. 624 chords for each key.
- 4800 chord progressions in major and minor scales: 100 progressions for each key and 4 styles.
The chords range from simple triads to 7th, 9th and all other advanced chords: sus2 sus4 add9 add11 6th dim6 7sus4 7+5 7+11 etc.
With this huge chords collection, you can cover all styles (Jazz, Pop, Hip-Hop, Trap, R&B and EDM). Try out chords that are out of the ordinary, without knowing anything about music theory.
Moreover, it's a collective project, you can contribute to new chord progressions on Github :)
