Product: https://www.kvraudio.com/product/forage ... st-plugins

Looks very cool but unfortunatly there isn't a demo version :x

It's an unique way to create own progressions... maybe it's a good add-on if you already own Chordz, Cthulhu or Scaler.

Any experiences so far?

Used it a couple of times (not spent much time making music recently). It took a bit of messing around to get set up at first but got it working, and then found they have detailed instructions for different DAWs here:

It works well, my musical theory is seriously lacking so it helps speed up the process significantly, means I can just jam away finding chords that I like that work together. I like to set the synth track to record and then play around finding chords I like, and then turn Forager off and just work from the recorded chords, chopping and arranging the MIDI etc.

They have a 30 day money back guarantee so if your music/chord knowledge isn't great I would give it a go

I bought it and like it. I use Scaler 2 just as often but it's super nice to set up different chords on my drumpads on my midi controller with forager, and it's easy to switch chord inversions..
