FeelYourSound has announced the release of a brand new version of its ChordPotion MIDI sequencer and effect plugin for Windows and Mac.

The composition and performance tool can turn any chord progression into new riffs and melodies instantly.

The basic concept is simple: You play your chords in your DAW, send them to ChordPotion, and ChordPotion generates new notes for you that are played on your favorite synth. You can also export the generated notes as standard MIDI files and edit them later on.

The plug-in contains four parallel sequencers. You can create and edit your own sequences from scratch or load one of the many factory patterns to build your own chord transformers.

Changes in ChordPotion 2.0

  • Randomize single steps with “step effects”. You can randomize step types, note triggers, octave pitches, strum, velocity, note hold.
  • Higher range of octave pitches for single steps: -2, -1, 0, +1, +2 (right-click to change the pitch down an octave).
  • Drag and drop steps in the step sequencer.
  • Visualization of played notes in the MIDI recorder area.
  • Copy and paste buttons for edited patterns.
  • New FX action: Remove step effects.
  • New FX action: Remove velocity changes.
  • New FX action for Chords row: Make it MultiPlay (three different versions). More info: https://feelyoursound.com/chordpotion-manual/#multiplay
  • New global FX action: Pick only one melody row.
  • New “Tripletize” algorithm.
  • Additional patterns for the three Melody rows.
  • Click on a label to do a reset of the corresponding value.
  • Wording change: “Melody 1”, “Melody 2”, “Melody 3” instead of “Top”, “Bass”, “Extra”.
  • 21 new factory presets.

ChordPotion can be expanded with preset packages to cover even more playing styles. For ChordPotion 2, FeelYourSound teamed up with game composer Denis Comtesse to create three free new preset packs:

  • “Keys Mix”: A selection of keyboard presets for various genres (Rock, Pop, Ballads, Blues, Jazz, Reggae, Soul).
  • “Golden Guitar”: Picked and strummed guitars patterns. From folk to triplets to classic playing styles.
  • “Time Oddity”: Various presets for odd meters like 3/4, 5/4, 6/8, and 7/8. Spice up your songs with some arpeggios, basslines, rhythmic chords, or strumming lines.

Available in VST and AU plugin formats, ChordPotion 2 costs 45 EUR / $49 USD. The update is free for all ChordPotion 1 users.
