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

Version 1.0.1 comes with some fixes and improvements to the piano roll.

Turn simple chord sequences into expressive melody lines and musical phrases. Simply design your phrase in the piano roll, and Phrasebox will play back the pattern using whatever notes you input.

You have complete control over how the phrase is played. Select notes in pitch order, or use the special selectors – such as the loudest/quietest or first-played/last-played. Your phrase will be played back with sample-accurate timing.

Changes in Phrasebox v1.0.1

  • Fixed: Cubase making noise in some instances.
  • Fixed: Timing issues with some non-standard sample rates.
  • Fixed: Showing preset error for some users.
  • Fixed: Hanging notes when using MIDI keyboard.
  • Fixed: Fixed note playing even with no input.
  • Added: Fill and clear a whole row of notes.
  • Added: Multi-delete notes by dragging with right mouse button down.

The update is free for existing users. New users can purchase the plugin at an introductory 30% discount at Plugin Boutique, priced £34.95 GBP / $45 USD until March 1st, 2020.
