Toneworks has announced the release of a new sequencing plugin designed for electronic music producers. A combination of a step sequencer, harmonizer and arpeggiator, Catalyst can also host your VST/AU synth plugins to create fresh basslines, melodies, chord progressions and arpeggios.

In Catalyst, melodic patterns are created in a step sequencer, which is a more immediate and natural way to compose for many electronic genres.

Single notes can be fed into the Harmonizer and transformed into chords in your chosen key – anything from two-note power chords to super wide pad chords with complex voicings. Finally, chords can be routed to the arpeggiator and turned into sweeping melody lines using custom arpeggio patterns.

Since Catalyst hosts synth plugins and outputs audio, there is no need for complex MIDI routing and extra tracks in the host DAW.

Catalyst for Windows and Mac (VST/VST3 and AU) is available to purchase for the intro price of 49 USD/EUR until March 31st, 2023 (regular 79 USD/EUR).
