Ripchord is possibly the best MIDI audition tool (not just playing the MIDI but being able to see the notes being played), thanks to it's minimal CPU usage and the ability to scroll through the presets with the arrow keys, without any delay.

The search function in the presets section helps a lot but one feature I'd really like to see in a future update is the ability to have the preset folder contain subfolders, rather than them all being in one directory, in order to have them more organised. Finding specific presets when you have a lot can be quite a challenge, so having them categorised in folders would make it a lot easier - even if this only allows for searching in the folder you select.

Great VST and really worth checking out. I have Scaler 2 but still prefer auditioning with Ripchord - it's just so much quicker, especially when you have tonnes of Scaler presets added. Keep up the great work, Trackbout and thanks for this amazing free plugin.

Congratulations to the new version of RipChord. Nice new features are included. And working perfect without muting any notes if you press another note after the first. Really polyphone!! The only thing is the functionality of the Mod-Wheel und the Pitch-Wheel.
Would be nice if that will passing through.

Any chance for VST 2 compatibility?

Unfortunately not. We've already made a VST2, but Steinberg will not allow us to give it to you. They are not giving any new developers a VST2 license, so only developers that already had a VST2 license before October 2018 are allowed to distribute VST2s now:

The only thing I'm missing is an easy and fast Chord-Assigning. There for I created a VBA-based Excel-Sheet (for Windows only!!).
There you can do that. See the video sample on youtube:

I am loving the plugin especially the Prism Preset pack. Just one request, (can you add descriptions of the buttons when you roll over them, ) nobody can tell what the buttons do, or I forget and have to go dig up a video. Thanks!.

Thanks a lot to Trackbout for giving us Ripchord for free! I like it very much! But as mentioned in the review from bluetom, it would be nice if Ripchord is able to pass Mod-/Pitch-wheel and I guess all other CCs etc. in the next update. Or is this only on REAPER which I'm using here?
