GIVEAWAY: Enter to Win Your Copy of “Captain Plugins” by Mixed in Key!

Mixed in Key's Captain Chords plugin suite

We’re giving away 3 copies of Captain Plugins by Mixed in Key – Read on to find out why these are the only composing plugins you’ll need for production! If you’re ready to enter now, click here.

Captain Plugins by Mixed In Key are the ultimate suite of MIDI-writing tools for electronic music composition. The four devices — Chords, Play, Melody, and Deep — communicate with one another to make sure your MIDI instruments stay in tune with each other. You can use Captain Plugins as an awesome musical sketchpad, for building loops and patterns, or to compose entire melodies!

Captain Chords assists you in creating striking chord progressions, applying interesting rhythms, changing key/scale, improvising your own progressions, and more! We especially love Chords’ ability to assign different chords to a single key. This allows even a novice producer the ability to improvise in a musical and creativity-provoking way. Did we mention you can export what you play in Chords into your DAW? It’s as easy as dragging the MIDI clip into your project.

Creating a chord progression while working on the upcoming review of Captain Plugins- expect another installment of our ‘DMNW Demos’ series!

Captain Play is another useful tool that gives you the creativity-inspiring control offered by Captain Plugins. You can easily play four octaves of notes in key using your computer keyboard; making it a perfect composition tool for mobile producers. Captain Play has the same ‘one touch chord’ ability as Captain Chords. Captain Melody and Captain Deep talk to Captain Chords to stay in key with your progressions. Make a change in your chord progression and your bass and melody will automatically adjust!

Captain Plugins offers a lot more than just inspiration. There’s a large included library of chord progressions, patterns, and rhythms for you to choose from. All of the Captain Plugins series allow you to route your MIDI patterns/progressions through a VST and AU units in real-time. The four are very stable plugins and are waiting for you to explore!
