Show chord extensions
I would like to see sevenths, ninths, augmented and diminished chords, not just the root and the quality of the chord (major / minor).
Dear chord extensions supporters, we agree that this would be a great improvement to chordify. However, the more specific the chords become, the higher the error-rate of the automatic transcription might be. Nevertheless, we believe we can give you some addition chord extensions in the near future and in the meantime we are working to implement the ability to insert them manually using our new chord edits feature.
This feature is scheduled to be released within the next 2 weeks–we’re still dotting the i’s and crossing the t’s, hang in there a little longer, guys!

I have found Chordify to simply not to live up to expectations. Even after more than a year of being online and in spite of numerous suggestions from users, they have failed to come up with any improvements whatsoever to the accuracy with which even very basic chords are recognised by their 'cutting edge' software. Chord transcriptions generally are >50% inaccurate. I find it incredible that they haven't been able to improve the software to such a degree that it is able to detect even a simple dominant7 or sus4 chord. If this is 'state-of-the-art music technology' then music technology is in a terrible state and certainly hasn't improved since guitarists have learned to play a simple E minor chord.
I would love to use chordify but the chords you come up with are not correct. i.e. you only get the root and the third.
You would have me as a client instantaneously if you were able to give out more complex chords e.g. with a different bass or with an altered 7th, a 6th, a sus4 or what not...
Please let me know if this is on your innovation road map and when you expect this to be possible :)
All the best,
It would be great if there can be more variety in your chord diagrams... showing the many variations a specific chord can have and providing us with diagrams of them as well would be very helpful!
I support this idea
René, thank you for your feedback. We agree completely that it would be great to support different chord voicings and chord inversions. However, as you might have noticed, for a fair amount of songs even transcription at the major/minor level still not good enough. We are currently working hard on improving our chord transcription algorithms. When we have improved the transcription for simple major and minor chords, adding common chord additions (sevenths etc.) and chord inversions will be logical next step.

Show chords with different root notes as such. For instance, if an Amajor chord is found with a C# as root note show it as A/C#.
