Feelyoursound.com has updated its MIDI composition software Sundog Scale Studio, for Mac & Windows, to version 1.4.0.
Sundog is a stand-alone MIDI sequencer that is designed to provide tools focused on composition.
It works like this:
- Connect Sundog to your DAW via MIDI.
- Pick a scale – like C Major or E Minor.
- Sundog will show you a list of chords that can be used on this scale.
- Create a chord progression by clicking and listening.
- Use the internal step sequencer to create melodies or arpeggios on your chords and scale notes.
The update adds enhanced sequencing options, improved MIDI support, ‘tighter’ MIDI clock, new views and more.
