Sad to say there is a Glitch, it freezes captain deep. Sent email, I have gone back to previous version.

I've ran into a crash once. Other than that, I have to say I really like the tension thing and the fill option, and the "rythm record" in captain chords is just really smart and awesome. I hope you keep supporting these plugins.

Good morning guys,
finally last night I tried captain plugins. Studio one 4 user here, windows 7 64bit.
Overall, I really like them but at the moment they are buggy. The future ahead is rich :) but please make it more usable.
Once Deep freezed when connecting to Chords, but it didnt happen again so I dont know what was the problem.

Are there any keyboard shortcut for changing tool like "Fill", "Select", "Pencil" etc.?

It could be very useful to have chords notes or scale notes highlighted in the background or maybe on the left keyboard when painting notes..so I can see
because now, if I paint or brush how can lock them to scale/chord/harmony?this is possibile only with "Fill", isn't it?

Also, if I enlarge enough the window and try to paste the copied midi clip to Studio one arranger window, Studio one disappears and I cannot paste the clip. If then I make the Captain window smaller everything works fine. I hope have been clear.

Also, when using Play alone or inside Melody if I record notes and click in an area inside Studio one then I come back to Play it doesnt work...I have to change window(i.e. click on "midi in") and return to Notes window.

So please before adding new features make usability and navigability inside Captain plugins more stable and easier.

Good job guys!!

please give us more!

Thank you :)

We will have an update later this week with tons of fixes for things we found could be improved during our Beta testing. So, keep an eye out for it ;)

Keyboard shortcuts for changing Fill are 1 2 3 4 on the keyboard.

I've forwarded all this to our developers. They will take a look into it and see how we can improve it on future updates.

Thanks a lot for your feedback. It's really helpful as we improve Captain Melody :)

Hey everyone. Using Captain Melody for Windows 10 64-Bit OS.

Looks as though the [Selection, Pencil, Paintbrush, and Fill Section] have replaced the [octave, note length, tension, rhythm and pattern section]. Screenshot attached**

Awesome set of plugins otherwise!

Just purchased the Windows version of Captain Chords and downloaded the beta version of Melody. Looking great so far, except that Melody says it's connected to Chords but no notes are added to the piano roll (as others have already noted).

Without that, it's hard to do further testing, since this is surely the whole point of the plugin, right?

Aside from this, the registration process was nothing but complete confusion with messages saying my VIP code was already in use, and login problems, but I think it was sorted out in the end.

Looking forward to creating some good music and hoping to see an update for Melody soon with fixes etc.

Hey Nigel,

After clicking connect to chords, can you please go to the Fill Tool and click to fill in some notes. It will generate some melodies based on your chord progression, which you can edit it to taste, of course :)

This kind of defeats the purpose of the melody plugin. As shown on the Mac version it will populate the melody based on the Chords. Yes clicking the fill section will fill in only 1 bar at a time. This is not only a hassle because you need to click on each individual bar to populate so if you have 8 or more bars this is very time consuming. Is it not possible for it to populate the full duration of the chords whether it's over 2, 4 or 8 etc bars?

We are working on something that will solve this problem ;)

Thanks, James, I did discover the fill option, but found it a bit clumsy to use until I got more used to it.

Looking forward to seeing a properly working version that matches the MAC way of doing things :-)

BTW: The keyboard shortcuts 1,2,3,4 don't work on my version of Melody.

Cheers

It's not working at all? Can you please email us (contact@mixedinkey.com) and give us more details about what's not working? We will have our developers take a look into this :)

Win10-64/Live/Vst-64

  1. Load CC and CM Plugins
  2. Create 1 standard chord in CC
  3. CM connect to CC, paintbrush 1 bar melody
  4. CC, expand to 4 chords
  5. CM still plays melody in 1 bar, but notes not visible.
    You need do disconnect/connect CM
  6. After reconnect, CM is playing 4 chords, but no scroll bar available to scroll over 4 chords. Only chance to scroll is painting notes at right viewport.

I have the same issue here - notes still play, I can see them in the small midi thumbnail pane, but no notes appear in the note lanes.

I have the same issue with invisible notes in CM. I selected a range of notes and then moved them about on the piano roll - when I stopped moving them they vanished, but were obviously still there because they continued to sound when played. If, while holding the Ctrl button, I then select the area where the notes are supposed to be, they become visible again but then disappear as soon as I release the Ctrl button.

The 1,2,3,4 buttons work as long as I make sure the focus is on CM and not Studio One i.e. if I press the play button in S1 to here the CM melody, the focus transfers to S1 and the buttons don't work. If I then click the mouse on CM and then use the buttons, they work fine.

For me the fill function works fine - I don't want the entire progression filled with the same melody pattern by default.

When recording a rhythm in Captain Chords, you can loop through the progression to get the feel/ beat of the rhythm to your liking. When completed it shows the take number - e.g. Take 3. Is there a way to review the previous takes? If so I can't figure out how and would appreciate a clue.
