Waldorf | Gekko Chords


Just one button and - believe it or not - only one function At the touch of a key, Gekko Chords doubles a chord that you have entered at your keyboard, with the entire tonal range of your keyboard available for doubling. Subsequently, you can turn a sad and lonely, low-end tone into an instant, riveting wall of bass by simply doubling a note several times, transform a reedy synthesizer ditty into a happening choral tune in the latest rave style, or turn a thin brass sound into the heaviest brass section. This feature, called "Chord Memory," was available in some synthesizers of the past. Now it is back, exclusively from Gekko Chords. You won't believe your ears; this little green monster will make your synth sound as if it's on steroids.
