I have just purchased Groove Box after playing with the trial version for just a little while.
This is great software. More than just something to practice with although it is great for that.
Friends and I do some recording via the Internet and pass files back and forth to build a finished product. One of the first things to go down is a click (metronome) track and a software generated drum track until we get a real drummer to replace this.
Groove Box is just the thing when your budget or needs don’t stretch to something like Addictive Drums. Pick a groove and save it and drop it straight into our DAW of choice (Reaper) and its done in a few clicks. Once in Reaper it can be stretched and tempo changed as you need. I was so excited when I got to play with Groove Box that I made a little video and sent the link to the other guys in our group.
That YouTube link is:
Hi there, its pleasant article regarding media print, we all be familiar
with media is a great source of data.
I do believe all the ideas you’ve introduced in your post.
They are very convincing and will certainly work. Nonetheless, the posts are too quick for beginners.
May you please prolong them a little from subsequent time?
Thank you for the post.
How can I make a music bigger than 64 blocks ?
Also, do we buy the program once, or do we also have to pay for upgrades?
Can we download more styles somewhere?
Hi, I will probably buy your program.. I was looking for something like this for a while. I had some software that came with my Yamaha XG1000 sound card, that did the same. Unfortunately this sound card can’t be plugged to new computers anymore. Also the software only runs on windows XP. Yours is a great alternative but I would like to suggest some features and also ask some questions. I hope this is the right place. I’m running the demo at the moment.
1- Suggestion. Being able to insert a bar in the middle of the song. Can’t find a way to do that at the moment.
2- Suggestion. Add “Intro” and “Ending” to the styles. I don’t think I saw any with these two features.
Ok, now a question. Is there a version of this software for Linux (Ubuntu)?? I do most of my music work in UBuntu..
Thank you in advance for your answer..
Hi, thanks for pointing that out, but you are not correct. There are many ways too tune 5 string bass and one of them is that you mention. But the one I prefer is also valid (and some say standard)BEADG (starting from low string).
Sorry but 5string Bass tunning is wrong E string is D.
Contact me and via contact form and we can try to come up with something.
I was wondering if you have any discount for students.
It’s one of those ‘can’t believe nobody has done this before’-type apps – always a good sign. Nicely designed and lots of fun …
Hi, Love the Chord Pad on my PC…wish it were available on Kindle Fire or other tablets.
Groove Box is my rehearsal and songwriting working horse.
The interface is very usable and with one touch you could background
the ideas which otherwise could dissappear forever trying to find the
rhythm in another drum mashine.
thanks for amazing program, but i am waiting for new update the chordpad 2 that with added more more styles… please UPDATE
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! I am
not kidding my livelihood depends on your software (I’m the guitar teacher). Well let’s say that
YOUR software is the BEST bar none of everything I have tried. I recommend
it to everyone who is interested in it. If there is anything that I can do
– recommend your product on your site whatever just let me know.
thank you for your answer. Not a problem, still a very good tool to make backing tracks and i like the styles.
By the way, is it possible to combine two styles in one song, say half time funk on the verse and swing on the bridge for an Autumn Leaves version like Michael Brecker in Monte Carlo? From the layout of the screen i suspect probably not ?
Hi Juergen thanks for your interest:)
It works with predefined patterns, you can’t load any midi file and use all the tools on it. But it has midi player where you can load any midi file and change tempo,transpose, change instrumentation etc…
trying out Chord Pad, very impressed. Ideal for my practice with the sax. Is there a way to load a MIDI file into chord pad?
NO really the upgrades on the Phrase Trainer are awesome
I am a bass player and the freq. filler u added well this is perfect for a
So many good upgrades i bought my first Phrase Trainer in 2008 i believe

Many thanks for your prompt reply. The reinstall seems to have things
working nicely again.
Also many thanks for the Chords and Scales link. I wasn’t even aware
that the trial had run out.
How good is your service. You know I have a problem even before I do!
Also phrase trainer is probably my most used app, and been a real game-changer for me.
Thanks Man! Thats the easiest, most painless recovery of software I’ve ever
Yes, I just sent you an email.
Please all use ‘support’ contact form (from the main page) when requesting tech. support. Thanks 🙂
Downloaded the trial version of chord pad for windows last night and have no audio. Running XP, two different computers yield the same results. Any insight?
Can you create or make this software as VST plugin for DAWs like Cubase?
This would be heaven for all musicians!!!
Can I install Chord Pad on my other computer?
just to avoid confusing people,it is not plugin it is stand alone application
Finally what I always been looking for-Chord Pad,thank you,
keep up great work:)
Just like to say that chord pad is a really good piece of software. It is well thought out and really useful for developing ideas. The price is also very fair compared to some other music software. Well done and keep up the great work!
Nice to have such customers 🙂
The Cord Pad is a great and very useful program.
i play Bass and find it to be very good for practice
i f you like Jazz Standards just enter the cords and play along
Thanks you for such a great product
Thanks for a wonderful product (phrase trainer)
Please, leave just your comments (good or bad,no matter) for questions use the contact form and my email address.
Hi great product and was about to buy but I need one tiny feature that I couldn’t find.
I really really needed it to only show only the note on the staff without actually displaying the note name etc. As I know my fretboard well but can’t read sheet music so seeing notes and translating them to their names and octaves is a challenge that I was hoping to train on.
Another item on my wish list farther down would be to work with the key so that I’d have to know the key and sharpen or flatten the written notes etc.
BTW, SPT is the best software I have ever used. Basically, I use it every day. It has improved my bass playing termendously and I recommend it all the time. Thank you!
your software(midi converter)is really superior to others by far and well worth the money!
It’s Very Nice To Using These Product . I Am Love These Software .
It’s Very Useful To Me & Everyone . So I’m Gonna Use It All Time .
the “groovebox” is a great and Advantage software for all musicians
feel the beats and play quantize with this product…
thank u everybody!
I recently purchased your product “Groove Box”. I am really happy with it, and I want to make you guys a big compliment. Awesome job, really.
Buenisimo programa chords & Scales, pero…quizas si tuviese alguna ventana mas donde poder salvar los aacordes escogidos seria fanatastico !!!!
Hi,Gerry,I replied few times your email but always got emails bounced back by your SPAM filter.
Here is the copy of what I sent:
Hi,thanks for your interest:)
There will be some updates but I can’t guarantee when.I’ll insert few
additional tunings that I’ve found in meanwhile.
As for the metronome in phrase trainer,I don’t believe so (I’m using
Phrase Trainer,and personally don’t find very useful having built-in metronome in it (you already play
along an song,and there are usually drums and all).
I think you can transpose tracks in Acid as well as changing their
tempo.Just look at controls on the left more carefully or consult its
Very interrested with chords and scales, very cool product, but I want to know if a custom tuning will be possible to use in a future version version before to buy it.
thanks very much
Thanks a lot for your fast help. This really seems to solve my problem becasue I was still busy converting.
Your software is really superior to others by far and well worth the money!
You can quote me on this if you like, in a testimonial on your site.
Phrase Trainer is exactly what I was looking for-simple and effective
The Phrase Trainer is an excellent tool for learning songs in alternate tunings. I am very impressed with the user interface and features that are offered in the Phrase Trainer. As a bass player it can be difficult to decipher the quick fills or buried bass lines being played. With the Phrase Trainer, it is no problem to slow down the track and isolate the part with the innovative loop option. Playing in different tunings is no problem. This is THE BEST tool on the market for learning songs, period! After the trial period is over this is a definate program to purchase. Best Regards, Matt M.
Cool, thanks. You guys have a killer product!
I am a bassplayer. Great program to work out your ideas. (Groove Box)
I use Phrase Trainer mainly to speed up bands who play
a semitone flat! Saves me constantly tuning up and down! The phrase
slowing has come in very handy too though! It’s a brilliant piece of
I purchased Phrase Trainer because I liked the way it looked. I really enjoy the product too. It does exactly what I want.
