Trackbout has announced an update to Ripchord, a free MIDI plugin for creating and remixing chord progressions.

Trackbout Ripchord

Version 2.4.0 includes a MIDI recorder, MIDI drag & drop, and more.

You can create custom chord presets from scratch, load community presets or expansion packs, and also import any MIDI file that contains chords and Ripchord will automatically create a preset from it. Once you have a preset loaded, you can quickly and easily compose progressions by playing single notes to trigger full chords.

Changes in Ripchord v2.4.0

  • MIDI recorder built into Ripchord.
  • Drag & drop MIDI from Ripchord into your DAW.
  • Power button to disable the preset chords, but maintain the MIDI routing and allow notes to pass through.
  • Import “Type 1” MIDI files as well as “Type 0” MIDI files.
  • Export the current preset as a MIDI file.

Ripchord is a free download for Windows and Mac. It supports VST3 and AU plugin formats.
