FeelYourSound has announced an update to its MIDI generator plugin ChilloutEngine, a specialized songwriting tool that turns your chord progressions into relaxed keys, smooth basslines, memorable hooks, and lovely arpeggios.

If you don’t have your own chord progression yet, ChilloutEngine can generate one for you. Different progression algorithms make it easy to start a new song from scratch.

The plug-in is suitable for all Chillout styles, but it is a good fit for other genres as well.

ChilloutEngine comes with a big list of presets for all occasions. The influences reach from classic Downtempo and Ambient songs to modern Lo-fi, Chillstep, and Lounge tracks.

Changes in ChilloutEngine v1.1.0

  • The chord progression generator “Lock scale” feature works with more than just the Minor and Major scales now (you can generate Lydian, Dorian, etc. progressions as well now).
  • UI scaling from 50% to 200% (new settings icon at the upper left of the starting page).
  • 42 new presets (10 drone notes, 2 arpeggio layered, 5 arpeggio non-layered, 10 bass, 6 keys and chords, 2 keys free playing, 4 rhythmic chords, 3 chord stabs).

Available in VST and AU formats for Windows and Mac, ChilloutEngine is priced 46 USD/EUR for the Standard version, and 368 USD/EUR for the Pro version. The update is free for all customers, and new users can download a free demo version.
