Postby musicdevelopments; Mon Dec 11, 2017 2:44 am RapidComposer v3.4 released!

The latest update, version 3.4 features the new Ostinato Generator and chord voicing assigned to tracks, phrases or master track chords with 21 presets and a chord voicing editor. Phrase drag-and-drop was improved, 2 new variations were added, the circle-of-fifths chart was extended, as well as many other improvements were implemented.


  • New phrase generator: Ostinato Generator
  • Chord voicing can be set for master track chords, tracks or phrases.
  • 21 chord voicing presets included (several drop voicings, rootless, root/3rd/5th In Melody, etc). You can create new voicing presets.
  • Chord voicing editor integrated into Quick Suggestions and Chord Selector
  • New phrase generator: Markov Melody Generator (it can be enabled in the settings under "Experimental Stuff")
  • New variation: "Velocity Range" : assign velocities to downbeats, on and off beats, 8ths and 16ths with randomness if needed
  • New variation: "Accents 4ths/8ths/16ths" : set 4ths, 8ths and 16ths note accents, useful for percussion
  • Muting phrases is possible
  • New setting: "Base Octave" : set the displayed name of MIDI note 60 (C3, C4 or C5)
  • New setting: "Convert drum notes when changing drum map". It is off by default.
  • New setting: "Quick Suggestions Placement". You can open the chord suggestion on the right side of the chord box
  • New Setting: "When Playback Stops Jump To Playback Start Position"
  • Phrase drag&drop improvements: phrases are shown inside the tracks during dragging them
  • MIDI files can be dropped to rhythm drop targets (where previously only rhythm patterns and phrases could be dropped)
  • Chords may have lengths in progressions. Chord lengths can be edited in the Chord Selector.
  • Drag-and-drop of chord progressions improved: you can drop one to a certain position on the master track
  • Circle of fifths improvement: Major/Minor Rings view option, and optional Chord Builder display
  • Chord Progression browser offers {length} and {namewithlength} synthesized data for chord progressions.
  • Loop mode implemented for chord progression preview
  • Visual feedback and pop-up explanation when dragging phrases or rhythm patterns over phrases
  • The currently played chord is highlighted during chord progression preview
  • Chord naming improved for chords not in the library (e.g. "R-2-b3-5-b7")
  • Custom phrase loading is several times faster than before
  • Toggling note selection in the Phrase Editor is now Ctrl-click instead of Shift-click
  • Alt-clicking over the master track (to split or join chords) does not open Quick Suggestions
  • It is possible to use slashes in group and phrase names, e.g. "3/4"
  • 'Extension' was removed from the Chord Generator - specify voicing for the phrase instead
  • Bug fixes and stability improvements

I've been sending email thru your website without any answers.

I was wondering if the software is stable under windows 7.
