You are frustrated by paid Midi Chord Packs, containing only 1200 Midi files? Yes, other Midi Chord Packs are either paid (like the Midi Chord Pack EssentialMidi or Unison) or very limited with a few dozen chords at most, but now you can download the most comprehensive Midi pack for free.

I give you My original Chord Pack which is both 100% free and diversified, containing more than 9500 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 😉!

Can I load the chord pack on my MC-707/101?

Yes! The .mid files can be imported to the Roland MC-707, MC-101 and MV-1. 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 file. A dedicated Zip file contains only the chord progressions, to facilitate the installation.
