Venomode has released Phrasebox, a phrase arpeggiator MIDI plugin. With its DAW-like piano roll a user can create expressive, layered melodies from simple MIDI chords.
Phrasebox is designed to allow control over the timing and length of notes as one would in a DAW, by designing phrases using a piano roll. Select notes in pitch order, or use the special selectors – such as the loudest/quietest or first-played/last-played. A phrase can be played back with sample-accurate timing.
Alongside note patterns, you can also send MIDI controller data from up to 8 assignable controllers, and with built-in generation tools, you can quickly get inspiration at the click of a button.
Phrasebox is compatible with most Windows, MacOS, and Ubuntu VST hosts.
Price: £35 (RRP £49 - Offer ends 29th Feb). Demo versions are available at the Venomode website.
