MIDI Madness is an algorithmic melody generator, in VST, AU, and AUFX audio plugin formats. It can be used to create everything from short melodies to longer phrases that follow a chord progression.

MIDI Madness can be used to create all kinds of MIDI, from short melodic phrases to longer lines which follow a chord progression. It can generate the notes for basslines, riffs, sustained pads, arpeggiators, or whatever other use you may have for its output.

MIDI Madness creates MIDI notes and controller data for you to use in your DAW. You can route the MIDI to another plugin, drag and drop loops to your DAW, or host a third party instrument directly in MIDI Madness. MIDI Madness also features various options for using it live.

MIDI Madness generates its notes and events based on selected probabilities (or probability weightings). You, the user, select the likelihood for something to happen; then MIDI Madness makes decisions based upon your choices.

Every aspect of the melody generation is available to be controlled – the notes, the duration of the notes, their loudness, how accurate to a metronome... MIDI CC and pitch bend parameters can also be set to control the final sound player.

When generating each note, MIDI Madness inspects the settings and generates the notes depending on the boundaries you have put in place. The probabilities are set using the modules accessible from the main console.

I think many creative people like painters or writers would like to have a tool like MIDI Madness for their profession.
But only musicians and producers get the fun. :-) MIDI Madness is easy to understand and after you've got the hang of it you are able to use it to create basslines, melodies, chords and even drum patterns.

Make 4 Tracks, drums, bass, pad and lead, load an instance of MIDI Madness for each track, tweak, use the random features and in the end you will get, for example, a nice ambient sounding endless song...without recording or setting a single note in the piano-roll. :-).

It's fun.

In the 2.1 update, the AU MIDI FX format is added and it works like a charm in Logic X. No more hassle in the environment page, just load it into the MIDI fx slot and there you go. A great tool to create inspiring CC automation on your generated sequences. The plugin was launched Q1 2014 and already some major additions have been added to give the plugin more potential. The developer listens to the feedback of his buyers, which I appreciate a lot. Steep price, but great value for your money.
