Can you improve chord pads in Studio One and make them useable as a chord progression assistant similar to Steinberg Cubase chord pad where the user is able to pick chords from the circle of fifth or put them together on the timeline in order to try some new ideas. It also allows the user to use any instrument of user choice on the pad and use an assistant that can determine multiple variations for every chord inside the circle of fifth. That should show multiple combinations for chord progressions e.g. D minor, E major, 7th, diminished, augmented, 9th, that also should include modal scales for Ionian, Doric, Phrygian, Lydian, Mixolydian, Aeolian, Locrian, etc...Cubase have that already and also Nuendo, it would be a big shame to miss that feature in Studio one. That should improve workflow and make sure that songwriters and artists have access to music theory fast learning tools, not make mistakes, and also improves significantly their songwriting skills without using external things like chord generators or mid-chord packs advertised by some piano professional salesman:)who is trying to make some cash here and there and maybe across the entire internet. Have a good one guys and I hope you will do it right move here:)

Yeah, would be very nice to have this. Especially since S1 already has a chord circle of fifths wheel. Adding this feature would make it more complete. +1 for this.
