Midi Chords

First off - I’ve recently discovered how to take audio and turn it into a MIDI file. It’s awesome. I can take a sweet guitar solo and translate it into a xylophone, accordion, bass guitar or whatever.

I have found that it doesn’t always translate like I want it to. How can I improve upon this?

Also - how can I develop the system to make it use chords, or is it mostly a case of nail the base lines and then draw the chords later on?

Buying cubase7 is literally one of the best purchase I’ve made in years (except for my vintage guitars. I’m an avid guitar collector).

For translating audio chords into MIDI, the only thing I know of is Melodyne Editor.

In the case of the bassline, you could use the ‘generate harmonies’ feature.
