According to Logic, this chord I'm looking at now has 187,230 notes, and it is an E7/maj7/b9/9/#9/11/b13. Name that tune!!

That’s some cluster. But it doesn’t even tell you if ifs a major or minor third. I’ll concede it is augmented.

Perhaps you're referring to A Day in the Life?

There's quite a lot of debate what's in that final chord, after all... wink

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

.. or the opening chord for Hard Days Night
they did that more than once smile

A Day In The Life had orchestra though so that added a lot of harmonics and resonance

Yes that is the mother of all clusters shocked

But being a smart guitarist I would play an E chord and let the rest of the band/orchestra fight over the rest of the notes wink

yeah, that's pretty much a cluster *
7th and maj 7th, b9,9,#9 .. plus 11 and b13 .. I'm running out of fingers trying to voice that <grin>
I have Steely Dan charts easier than that

How ironic is it that an illogical chord like that came from Logic...

Wait a moment. This isn’t a joke, it’s an actual chord in some song?

No. What happened was I just selected every note in every region of a multi track piece with a LOT of notes. Seems kind of silly for Logic to be offering that chordal insight for the whole piece, but I guess it's a question of where you draw the line.
