Chords X is the further development of Patterns X, the melodic pattern (loop) creator. With this app, created melodic shapes are harmonized with an infinite variety of modal chords that can be developed into full compositions for use in film scores, pop, classical and jazz works. There is an option to have the app generate drum parts and harmonic rhythm to the set of chords to realize the creations in a musical context. with the full version the creations can be saved as one or two track MIDI files with or without drums, or as data files that opened by the app.

This is a neat little app that can offer the composer suggestions in terms of harmony and can be useful if used creatively but the price is way too high, IMHO.
It seems to come with a custom version of "New Aloisen" and does not recognize any other version of that font but the one that comes with the application. That needs addressing.
