Sometimes, the best way to create a chord progression is just to hit some notes, and discover what sounds good.
In the Chords mode, Captain Play will play an entire chord when you press one button. For example, pressing the “A” key on your keyboard might play the A Minor chord. Pressing another key may play the C Major with an added 9th note. You can learn the sound of every common chord used in all of today’s music, and then make your own chord progression.
You can just use Captain Play to route MIDI notes in real-time to any of those synths. This is super helpful when you’re doing sound design and you want to experiment with playing an exotic Key and Scale combination. You don’t have to memorize what notes belong to a specific key and scale, the mapping takes care of it.

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.

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.
