You could invent a new music genre with this plugin’s beat making capabilities.”

The complexity setting allows you to add extra bass notes to each chord to make it more thick and powerful. Once you’re happy with your progressions, simply drag and drop the MIDI file straight into your DAW for further editing and arranging.
Apply rhythms to your chord progressions. There are 100+ rhythms in Captain Chords. Some are basic, and some are super sophisticated.

However, if you prefer to audition progressions with your favorite synth, simply route the notes to your analog synths or digital VSTs anytime. Captain Chords will send MIDI notes to Massive, Sylenth, Serum, and all other VSTs and AUs.
For an enhanced chord creation workflow, you can also use the Captain Play tab to intuitively jam out chords on your computer keyboard. One touch plays 3 notes of each chord. It’s a way to put your hands on your keys, and play chords quickly and easily.
Once connected, all the Captain plugins will work together seamlessly, allowing you to audition different chord progressions whilst automatically changing the bass and melody to suit. Captain Chords is designed to help inspire you, add strong foundations to your tracks, and write memorable hooks. The suite of plugins offers the flexibility to customize and tweak the progressions to your taste while keeping the various sections of your arrangement in key.
