Chord Transcribing from Midi Notes

Sometimes I write songs on Piano, however I don't always necessarily know every chord name. I guess this is because i learn my favorite songs on piano by ear, not by sheet music. So i play different chords some inverted etc, 7th, major, minor diminshed, but I dont really know all the names.

This becomes a pain when trying to show my writing partner a new song. He plays guitar and knows all the chord names. With a basic music theory cheetsheet we can grind through most of the song and transcribe it, but it is sometimes time consuming and frustrating.

Im looking for a program to do this for me. If its 90% accurate and messes up a few times that perfectly ok with me. But it would still save alot of time.

I used to have a simple program a few years back that did this for me perfectly and was free. I would record midi in cubase and import into the program and click transcribe. But I cant remember the name, and it was for windows anyways. I have now switched to mac.

Anyone know of a program that can do this for Mac and is free or at least cheap (sub 75$)?

I've never looked for that feature, but come to think of it, it would be kinda handy. Maybe someone can edify us...

Also, Logic can do this very well with a little tweaking to your midi arrangement:
