9. Make your own dance track!

Captain Plugins are award-winning AU + VST plugins for music composition. Captain Plugins allows you to use your favorite DAW, such as Ableton, as the foundation of your studio set up. You can then add purpose-built plugins to create MIDI chord progressions, melodies, basslines and beats. These musical creations can then be dragged and dropped directly within your DAW for further production.

If you’re looking to use Captain Plugins you’ll need a DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) to run it in. Fortunately one of the best is offering a 90 day free trial: Ableton Live Free Trial. Captain Plugins is easy to use and is designed to work seamlessly with Ableton Live.
