Is there a way to "feed" RC with a source of midi files from different genres so it creates melody and phrases based on the genres that you choose from? thank you :)

Not at the moment, but some kind of neural network will be added in an early v4.X version which will let you analyze/learn existing styles, and create similar phrases and melodies.

Hello dsdaniel,

1. Yes, it is possible to save chords from a MIDI file.
You need to load the file first (on the MIDI Import page, chords are analysed here), then select all chords on the master track (select the first chord, shift click on the last one you want to save), then right-click on a chord to open the the master track inspector, then click on the button "Save Selected Chords As Progression". You can enter a group name here, and a name for the progression. This will save the progression in the Progression Browser, where you can drag and drop on a composition anytime.

2. The Melody Generator is the only phrase generator that creates something from the master track chords. So make an empty composition (or use the one you imported), add a new track for the melody. Add the Melody Generator at the beginning. Resize it by dragging the right edge, use 'Regenerate' as the resizing mode. Right clicking on it will let you change its settings and regenerate the melody if you don't like it.

Thanks,
Attila
