Mixed in key have updated their Captain Chords plugin to version two, adding more performance options, new presets and enhanced timing features. Originally released earlier this year, Captain Chords is a composition assitant plugin that helps users create more interesting chords and chord progressions with a series of scales and cadence options.
Once you've created your chord or chord progression you can use either the built-in sounds within Captain Chords or drag-and-drop the MIDI to your DAW. Alternatively you can use Captain Chords as a MIDI FX plugin to trigger other synths and hardware.
The update is free for anyone who's already using version 1 and for everyone else it costs $79.
