Trackbout has announced an update to the Ripchord MIDI plugin, which is designed to let you create and remix chord progressions with ease.

Version 2.6.0 of Ripchord now includes full native support for Apple Silicon. The source code is now available on Github.

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.

Other changes in the update:

  • A preset tagging system with user defined tags to organize presets.
  • Automatic recall of the last resize when a new instance is opened.
  • The max resize was increased from 150% to 200%.
  • Various minor improvements.

Ripchord is free to download in VST3 and AU plugin formats for Windows and Mac.
