Making music is both our lifeline and our liquidator, it gets us up in the morning and stops us from sleeping at night knowing that when you’re in the studio, anything can happen…
Each one of us is chasing, chasing that killer beat, a crazy drop, that heady build, and getting stuck creating the perfect melody – ugh the frustration! Until suddenly it dawns on you that everything has lead you, without you even knowing it, to this… the perfect segue into your golden moment.
Segue – Melodic Chords & Arps for Cthulhu answers the melodic question of “what’s next?”, placing all of the creative power of Xfer Records’ Cthulhu at your fingertips. Explore every opportunity to tell your musical story with chord progressions and arpeggiated patterns for modern electronic genres including but not limited to Lo-Fi R&B, Pop, Indie and Electro.
Artful and dynamic, these new Cthulhu presets are an invaluable asset to any producer, beginner or advanced. Designed to provide fresh progressions every time you open the box, there’s a super slim chance you’ll ever get the same ideas twice. We’ve dug deep into our music theory background so that you don’t have to, adding unusual and rarely used chords so you get progressions that will set you apart from the same repeating chords your peers are stuck with.
Featuring 3700 chords spread across 100 presets in the majority of Major and Minor scales, you can move into any key you might need by taking advantage of Cthulhu’s transpose feature to change the mood entirely. Flick the switch on Cthulhu’s arpeggiator and those chord presets become a melodic lead with tons of flexibility. We’ve even included 50 custom arpeggiator presets that will give you even more flexibility and inspiration for a variety of music styles.
To make it even easier to navigate Segue, we have included 30 MIDI examples of chord progressions accompanied by 30 corresponding MIDI files that link to the current presets, along with 15 chords progression WAV loops. Together, these act like a tutorial of how this pack should be used as well as being viable melodic ideas for your own music.
If you want to be unique, to push your musicality and create music that gets you noticed, Segue – Melodic Chords & Arps for Cthulhu is a powerful, indispensable tool you will keep coming back to in weeks and months to come.
