1. AudioCipher V2

 
AudioCipher V2
 

What’s new in AudioCipher Version 2.0?

You asked for these updates and we listened!

AudioCipher now includes a rhythm component, with a slider to choose the duration of each MIDI note. Choose from a steady rhythm of 16th through whole notes, or flip the Randomizer switch and see what AudioCipher comes up with. Audition different random melodies until you find an idea that you like.

To make the plugin more manageable for laptop producers, we’ve also brought the size of the interface down substantially. So it doesn’t take up so much room in the DAW.

Discover new musical ideas when you turn words into notes with AudioCipher V2

AudioCipher is a music inspiration app. It’s designed to give producers like you a tool to play with while you’re coming up with new ideas.

You just type in a word or phrase and pick a key signature.

AudioCipher V2 automatically translates your text, letter by letter, into a series of MIDI notes. You can drag this MIDI data onto your virtual instrument of choice.

Why turn words into music?
Because composers have been doing it for years as a way to overcome writer’s block. Nobody wants to do the translations in their head (too much math) so we automated that process for you.

Fans have been using AudioCipher V2with RipChord, a free chord generator plugin, to come up with new and unexpected chord progressions.

The nice thing about AudioCipher is that it can help you get a starting point for MIDI composition, songwriting and beatmaking. It’s not a melody generator like Melody Sauce. AudioCipher V2 sets you down a path and it’s up to you to interpret how to follow it.

Your AudioCipher V2 download will include:

  • Standalone MIDI app for Mac and Windows.
  • VST3 for MacOS.
  • AU MIDI plugin for Logic Pro X (MacOS).
  • Installation Guide.
  • Getting Started Guide.
  • 3 Encoder PDFs to understand how the AuidioCipher cryptogram works.
  • 250+ MIDI Files based on words organized by major/minor/chromatic.

4. Phrasebox

 
Phrasebox
 

Phrasebox is a phrase arpeggiator that gives you control over the playback like never before.

With it’s DAW-like piano roll you can create expressive, layered melodies that aren’t limited in timing and length compared to traditional step arpeggiators.

The notes of the piano roll correspond to the pitch order of notes, with “special” notes (like the loudest or quietest notes played), which let you control exactly which notes you want to play. It also features a lock to key option so your transposed notes are never out of key, and the included controller window lets you also send MIDI CC data out to your instruments.

Phrasebox also features generation options, so you can generate unlimited unique phrases at the click of a button.

Phrase Arpeggiation

Turn simple chord sequences into expressive melody lines and musical phrases. Simply design your phrase in the piano roll, and Phrasebox will play back the pattern using whatever notes you input.

You have complete control over how the phrase is played. Select notes in pitch order, or use the special selectors – such as the loudest/quietest or first-played/last-played. Your phrase will be played back with sample-accurate timing.

DAW-Like Control

Phrasebox isn’t like traditional step sequencers or arpeggiators – you have full control over the timing and length of notes as you would in your DAW. Alongside velocity controls, you can also adjust each note’s transposition, and even select a random chance that the note will play.

If your transpositions end up falling between the notes of a scale, you can enable the “Lock To Key” feature to make sure your riffs are always in tune.

Controller Editing

Alongside note patterns, you can also send MIDI controller data. With up to 8 assignable controllers, you can design everything from piano parts using the hold pedal, to automated synth filters and pitch bends to make the perfect melody line.

Generation

If you want quick access to an unlimited number of phrases, you can use the built-in generation tools to quickly get inspiration. Simply set how you want the notes and controller data to be generated, and Phrasebox will create a unique phrase pattern with just the click of a button.


5. MIDI Grid

By: ADSR
 
MIDI Grid
 

MIDI Grid is a generative MIDI sequencer that can create evolving patterns in a chosen key and scale. MIDI Grid will work with any synth that accepts MIDI input. Requires Reaktor 6.3.

The bulk of MIDI Grid’s interface is a simple 8×8 grid.

Each square in the grid can have one of three basic types: dead, alive, or buffer.

Click on any square to change it’s type.

Dead squares don’t do anything, and they appear as an empty square on the interface. These should make up the majority of the grid.

Alive squares move in a direction, and they appear as an arrow pointing in that direction on the interface. Whenever they run into the edge of the grid, another alive square, or a buffer square, they change direction. Alive squares also trigger MIDI notes whenever they hit the edge of the grid. There are controls to the left of and above the grid that select which notes are triggered when this happens.

Buffer squares simply sit still and wait for alive squares to bump into them. They appear purple on the interface.

The key to creating a nice, evolving, patch in MIDI Grid is to set things up so that you have a few alive squares and buffer squares that will bump into each other as sequencer advances.

The collisions will cause the squares to change direction, which will cause the MIDI output to morph over time.

It is this that will add an element of randomness to your system (if you set your grid up so that no collisions occur between squares, it will never evolve at all).

To the right of the grid, there are controls for the key and scale, the speed of the sequencer, the length of the generated notes, and velocity. When changing key and scale, the changes made will be harmonically informed – you will always change to a key or scale that is harmonically adjacent to the one you just left.

As a MIDI generator, MIDI Grid does not create any sound on it’s own. You must route the MIDI data to the synth of your choice.

In the video provided, an example is shown using Ableton Live. While the exact method may differ slightly from DAW to DAW, it should be very similar in your program of choice.

8. Hexcel

By: ADSR
 
Hexcel
 
Hexcel is a generative MIDI sequencer based upon the harmonic table, specifically designed for creating semi-random patterns based upon user input.

The user has direct control of the amount of randomness in any given sequence. Hexcel can work with any synth that accepts MIDI input.

The main part of Hexcel’s interface consists of a hexagonal grid, using the harmonic table. Each cell within the grid can be set to one of several functionalities.

The function of a cell is determined by it’s color:

Green cells generate ‘active nodes’ in one of several ways – either upon starting the MIDI clock, or at a user-specified tempo, or triggered directly by the user pressing a button. Active nodes are generated with a direction, and they travel across the hexagonal grid in that direction.

Yellow cells are used to trigger MIDI notes. Each cell has a MIDI note that it is associated with, and that note will play whenever an active node comes into contact with a cell that has been set to yellow.

Orange cells are used to reverse the direction of any active node that crosses it.

Red cells delete any active node that comes into contact with it.

Grey nodes can be used to re-direct active nodes in a randomized fashion. Each cell has 6 buttons surrounding it – these can be turned on or off by clicking on the outer region of the hexagon. A grey cell with all of it’s buttons turned off will do nothing. However, if one or more buttons is turned on, any active node will choose one of those buttons at random and move in that direction. These are therefore quite versatile as they can be used to automatically re-direct any active node into a desired direction (by only turning on one of the buttons) or into a completely randomized direction (by turning on all 6 buttons).

Finally, there are some controls on the right-hand side of the screen that allows the user to control the speed that the sequencer runs at, how often new active nodes are generated from Green cells, and so on. The ‘CLEAR’ button at the bottom allows the user to delete all active nodes if things get too chaotic.

As a MIDI generator, Hexcel does not create sound on it’s own – the MIDI data needs to be sent to an appropriate synth. This can be achieved either directly in Reaktor or using Reaktor in a DAW such as Ableton Live.
