Your notes will always be harmonic. If you make a change inside Captain Chords, it reflects inside Captain Melody too. You can tell Captain Melody how to adjust the notes and fit the chords. There are 3 main settings: “Chord Notes Only”, “In Harmony” and “In Scale”. It’ll tune your notes so they sound great with your chords.
“Captain Plugins is a highly productive harmonic and melodic toolkit for experienced musicians and total newcomers to composition alike. Winner of the Innovation Award.”
“Thrilling melodies and chords to help you build a solid foundation for your songs. We are making a clear Buy recommendation.”
“These plugins close the door on the past.”
You’ll get Captain Chords + Captain Play + Captain Deep for Mac and Windows, and Captain Melody for Mac. 👌
The maximum power option. Use Odesi as a stanadlone to write music, and combine that with Captain Plugins inside your favorite DAW. If you’re starting a song from scratch, Odesi will help you express your ideas faster.
If you’re working with an existing session, adding the Captain Plugins is a huge time-saver to speed up your workflow. Enjoy using both products side-by-side.
We officially support Ableton Live and Logic on Mac OS X 10.10 and higher. More DAWs will be supported soon as we get through the beta.
Yes, we are working on it. Our Mac code is written in Objective-C and Cocoa, and our Windows code is written using WPF and C#. Those are different programming languages, and it takes extra time to make a “native” version of the plugin for Windows. We plan to release it sometime in 2018.
There are 100+ custom sounds designed for Captain. You can use built-in Leads, Plucks, Basslines, Drum Kits, Pads, and more. All the sounds were sourced from Spotify Top 100 charts and Beatport Top 100 charts from different genres. It’s a quick way to audition how your MIDI notes will sound with different instruments. You’re welcome to use the sounds in your own productions.
Yes, you can route MIDI to your favorite VST synths. For example, you can use Captain with Serum, Massive, Sylenth, Kontakt patches, and every other VST installed on your computer.
You can also use your favorite external hardware, like Moog Synthesizers, Prophets, and anything else that supports the MIDI protocol.
You can use Captain plugins offline to play the MIDI you’ve already written. However, you need to be connected to the Internet to write new MIDI notes inside the plugins themselves. Our generators require Internet access.
So what happens when you’re on a laptop, flying on an airplane? You can write MIDI notes inside Live and play them using Captain plugins, but you won’t be able to generate a new chord progression using our User Interface. Internet is becoming common everywhere, even in the sky. Most studios have wifi. This requirement is usually not a problem.
The same people created all 3 products.
Mixed In Key was our first product. It’s used by the world’s top artists to analyze music and find the Key and Energy Level for every track, for perfect harmonic mixing.
Next, we created Odesi to help you sketch musical ideas, and write the core foundation of every track.
Captain Plugins are an evolution of Odesi. We took the technology inside Odesi and broke it apart into “modular” VSTs that you can add to individual MIDI channels. You can put Captain Chords on a new MIDI channel inside Ableton Live, Captain Melody on your Melody channel, and so on. Captain Plugins are like smaller versions of Odesi that run inside your favorite DAW like Ableton Live or Logic.
