NOTE: The above list contains both chords and scales. Chords will sound pleasing when used with melMUL and melALT pads. Scales will sound pleasing with melALT but possibly not sound pleasing with melMUL pads. This is because a melMUL picks the first 4 notes of the scale (which may sound nice as a scale but not as a chord). As usual, feel free to experiment!
