Liquid Notes, the “intelligent composing assistant,” has been updated to add its own library of instruments and a track assignment editor.
Liquid Notes is an app that integrates “music intelligence” algorithms based on the theory of harmony: chords, scales/melody, and harmonic movement. These algorithms assist the user during the music production workflow: from finding the basic chord progressions to applying complex multi-track alterations to a composition.
The library includes basic instruments, ranging from percussion to bass, leads, pads, mallets, classical instruments, and a variety of other sounds. The addition comes in handy when composing without connecting to a sequencer, as the new features allow the user to work without one.
Here’s an example of the new feature in action:
Re-Compose, the company behind Liquid Notes, has said that they plan to expand the application’s capabilities to “manipulation of the overall aspects of compositions and arrangements (e.g., for accompaniments, melody creation, song form, etc.)” in Liquid Notes 2.0, due in the second half of 2013.
Liquid Notes is available for Mac & Windows, priced starting at US $149.
