I would like to see the chord name when I select notes in the piano roll as shown below.

I'm coming from Logic Pro X and I find this option really helpful.

I made this short video so you can understand what I mean: 

Let me know if you understand what I mean.

I hope to see this function in the next release! 

Thank you so much! :)


Thies feature was added in Studio one 5.4! They made it better than Logic, Thank you PreSonus team! :D

Yes please ! That same function would be nice in Notion as well. Having a "chord finder" is always useful. I believe Guitar Pro as a feature like this.

I would much more prefer this to be a general MIDI chord info displayed on the transport bar where the time is. Not only for selected noted in the piano roll, but also the incoming MIDI data so you can see what you're playing.

This would be such a useful feature! There have been countless times this would’ve saved me a lot of time.

Yes, this option is in Cubase and is very useful to review your track for errors. I always use it.
