Professional MIDI Multi-FX Plugin

Kameleono is a new kind of a live musical instrument.

It brings the power of side-chaining to the MIDI world by using your DAW to build patterns and sequencer steps.

You can use it to program or even play live the most high speed and complex modern melodies, bass lines, etc. You can also use it to simulate professional playback of a real instrument such as a Piano, Guitar, etc., as shown in the demo video.

Key Features:

  • High Precision Engine (Sample Level Accuracy).
  • Accurate Timing for MIDI Out Recording (Agnostic to DAW's Buffer Settings).
  • Pattern Based Arpeggiator.
  • Polyphonic Sequencer.
  • Chord Memorizer and Player (Playing chords with one finger).
  • Unlimited Steps.
  • Unlimited Note Lengths.
  • MIDI Expression Control.
  • Advanced Note Shuffling / Timing.
  • Real Time Quantizer.
  • Enhanced Note Hold.
  • Special Mode for Drums (Note Gate).
  • Build-In Basic Synth.
  • Remote Automation.

Note that all Notes-In parts in the following video were played and recorded live.

This thing is (almost) amazing. It does have a bit of a learning curve -- you need to figure out in the context of your particular DAW how to route things correctly. But it's just pure magic after that. The basic idea is that you have two MIDI sources per instrument: (1) a pattern, (2) some chords over which to execute that pattern. You can generate very complex patterns in a short period of time.

Biggest issue is that it seems to no longer be under development. Also there are some licensing issues where it un-registers itself every few weeks and requires a trip to go re-enter the license key. It could be fixed to be a really awesome tool, but unfortunately at this point I'm going to try to avoid using it again.

This product gets the lowest rating until it starts being supported again. Do not waste your money on this when there are other alternatives like BlueARP that do similar things with less headache and for FREE.

when i buy something, i expect support
transparency from the developer and future security
all this you will miss here that is not a good sign
for that the price is too high with this risk
the platform is not important. a win 10 user.

I was looking for a tiny but powerfull live arpegiator/sequencer plug-in and found Kameleono.

Kameleono is a real new MIDI machine, with lots of innovative features. Can be used for live play (sequences/bass lines), you can use your own MIDI files or patterns in your DAW to send rythmic sequences and play live (or send chords/notes track), Kameleono will sequence your favourite virtual instrument.

one-finger chord mode, scales, many latch modes, transpose in and out. The sequence can pick velocity/pan/mod from the rythmic pattern or input notes (or a mix of both)

Tested with Cubase, Live, and Mulab, very stable. Also tested with Bitwig demo, can't find more simple: drag/drop Kameleono, drag/drop a synth behind and you're ready to play with Kameleono's pattern presets.

Also tested with 3 instances: one for bassline, 2 for synths, all in sync, no hiccups.

If you want to use patterns on your DAW, once you have understood the way it works (one MIDI track for rythm datas > kameleono, one MIDI track for notes input > Kameleono, one MIDI track for your VSTi with Kameleono as input), it's very easy and fun to use.
