FeelYourSound Releases MelodicFlow, MIDI Performance & Songwriting VSTi

FeelYourSound has released MelodicFlow for Windows and Mac OS X – a MIDI performance and songwriting VSTi.

The concept:

  • Put MelodicFlow on a track of your DAW.
  • Connect it to a synth or some other instrument.
  • Play a chord on the lower half of the keyboard. You won’t hear this chord, because MelodicFlow stores the notes and as your “action notes”.
  • Then press a white note on the upper half of the keyboard to trigger arpeggios and ‘melodic rhythms’.

Here’s a video of MelodicFlow in action:

Here’s an example of using MelodicFlow to trigger a variety of synths. The advantage of this approach is that you can use your ‘chord master track’ to change all the dependent tracks at once:

Pricing & Availability:

MelodicFlow is available now for US $32 / 29 EUR. Enter flow2016 at the checkout page to get a 10% introductory discount (valid until 2016-06-16). A demo version is also available.

    1. Yeah, this and some of the recent synth releases from Sugar Bytes do way too much of the heavy lifting for my liking.

  1. I’m 53 and run a small company with 18 employees and instead of watching TV with my rare free-time, one of my hobbies is playing around with “making” music. Tools like this do NOT allow me to claim being a Hans Zimmer but they do allow me to extend my own entertainment while simultaneously learning something new instead of leading a passive life as an observer or worse; a complainer about others short-cuts and perceived lack of authenticity.

  2. Can’t wait to see live streams of FL studio users with their note writing VST, playing their pirated Sylenth1, while squashing the $#!T out of it with Soundgoodizer on the main outs. How far we’ve come!

  3. There is something gratifying when I make a progression, learn my chords, start playing melodies over those chords. Wrong notes and all, it’s a valuable process to me– and it is fun.

    I get that some people will like how “easy” this makes it. Easy isn’t necessarily a bad thing. And I think this could be a fantastic tool to help kids get into music without losing their attention too quickly.

  4. Just plain laziness. If you can’t do this on your own already, you need more training.
    I agree this can be fun, but so is masturbation. If you actually have skills other people will join in and that’s when it’s really something worthwhile.

  5. The Luddites are out today!

    The point of arpeggiators isn’t to replace musicianship, it’s to extend it so that musicians can do things not otherwise possible – playing sequences not humanly possible, getting that motoric sound, improvising with machines, playing more parts at once than you could otherwise, etc.

    Musicians without imagination will always make unimaginative music, no matter what he tools!

  6. Like Presets, these ar good starting points to learn how to get the sound you’re after, but nothing compares to knowing where the notes go and what sounds good with what . Sure, I use the Scale feature of Studio One 3, (eg: The Key of F#m Melodic Minor) because my music theory isn’t perfect, when composing a lead guitar solo, and sometimes have to switch to either a Minor Pentatonic, or Harmonic Minor scale on the fly because one scale note doesn’t fit with the chord structure I’m using. Anyway, it’s all about using your ears and “hearing” what you need and not relying on these tools. When building a house, Using a pneumatic hammer is easier than using a claw hammer, so I shouldn’t use the pneumatic hammer?
