Music theory question: what's going on with Lisbon
Appealing to the collective wisdom of this forum: can anyone explain Lisbon's chord pads? There are eight variations on Major and Minor chords over 7 pads and can be transposed +-24 semitones but they aren't your typical sounding major, major 7th/minor chords. They appear to be following some other very sophisticated type of Progression. I've experimented and analysed these for awhile but I can't predict what kind of chord I'm going to get with these. Can anyone explain or point me in some kind of direction in terms of a music theory concept to get why Korg made this decision? They sound cool, and I like that they capture the notes so that they can be copied to another Gadget but I have no idea what's going on.
