I do a lot of arrangement work. Part of this includes to write instrumentation for given songs, i.e. you have a given Melody and a given underlying chord progression. From this start point I need to set the given chords “underneath” the melody. There are clear rules how this can be accomplished (e.g. start with a block chord of the given harmony - taking the given melody note as the top note and then distributing the remaining chord notes below that - initially eg. as block harmonies - with the option to modify this voicing by various dropping “logics” - all well known to arrangers).
Is there a way to do that in cubase using e.g. a midi track plus a chord track - and then let cubase automatically create a voicing of the chord progression that has the melody as the top note and lets the chords follow the melody also rhythmically?
You know, the way you would for example take a lead sheet of a Jazz standard and use the given chord progression to write an arrangement for a 4 or 5 saxes, etc.
