Venomode has announced an update to the Phrasebox phrase arpeggiator which lets you craft expressive sequences from MIDI chords.

Version 1.2.3 adds a new drag and drop feature to populate the phrase’s piano roll with notes from a MIDI file. It also allows the setting of an active range so that articulation keyswitches can be passed through.

Changes in Phrasebox v1.2.3

  • Added: Load a phrase pattern from an arbitrary MIDI file.
  • Added: Active input range – for articulation keyswitch passthrough.
  • Added: Velocity passthrough – phrase uses velocity from input notes.
  • Fixed: Drag and drop sometimes not loading MIDI file.
  • Fixed: Notes sometimes being missed in Logic.
  • Fixed: Deleted sequences sometimes being recalled on session reload.
  • Fixed: Hanging notes when bypassing.

The plugin is on sale for £25 GBP at Venomode and distributor Plugin Boutique until June 21st, 2021 (regular £49 GBP).
