    Default Maj7#11 chord rejected by iRealPro

    Greetings!
    I’m new to this. For some reason. I can’t input a “Maj7#11” chord into Irealpro - does anyone know why?
    I type in “Maj7#11” and a window pops up “Cannot play Meas 13 because DbMaj7#11 cannot be played”. Yet the symbol “Maj7#11” is listed as one the platform recognizes.
    Thanks!

    Use the “Delta” symbol ▵ instead of typing “Maj”.

    iRp will recognize and play Db▵7#11

    Be sure you are using the CHORD entry screen (it doesn’t have an M or a j) and not the text entry screen (abc) in the iRp app on your iPad.

    On a Mac, the keyboard shortcut for ▵ is ^

    Thank you. So on one tune, I was able to successfully input “DbMaj7#11”. But just now, on another tune, I tried inputting DbMaj7#11 and it didn’t recognize it. I’m using the delta sign and “#11”. I wish this thing would just...work.

    Great, so we know it works when entered correctly.

    Db▵7#11 is recognized, Db▵#11 is not.

    Also, if anything extraneous is accidentally entered in the chord field, the chord won’t be recognizable.
    (eg. a space as the first (or any) character)
    I accidentally fat-finger stuff all the time on touch screens.

    Try selecting your chord from the menu of recognized qualities. (Quality button adjacent to the entry field)

    Crazy - for me at least, you have to add a ‘7’’ after the delta sign: “Db^7#11’. Triangle IS Maj7, so that’s weird, but hey.....whatev!
