We have once again created a few videos that make an attempt in bringing the essence of Liquid Notes to you.
This shall help those of you unfamiliar with our intelligent music composition software in getting a better understanding of its capabilities, what it contains and what it doesn't. Overall, we also want to make sure that people get an overview of Liquid Notes' main features by watching one video only.
Changing chord progressions and improvising live
Liquid Notes is all about chord progression management. Once the harmonic analysis has run, the software has gained a deep understanding of the musical structure from the perspective of harmony of your MIDI arrangement. This enables the software to assist you with changes to chord progressions, and to add a melody to a song that fits the scale of your song.
Changes to chord progressions can be made by selecting an alternative for chords, scale and melody from the chord drop down menu, or by using the main controls (dials, slider). Each selection of a new chord setting triggers Liquid Notes to model that chord for you, on all tracks affected in conjunction with music theory. You can listen in directly, thus focus on the hearing while visual indications for each chord inform you how far off from conventional Western listening habits you are.
The live improvisation feature in Liquid Notes enables you to add a melody to your song, with the input from a QWERTY-keyboard or external MIDI device being mapped to the scale of your arrangement. You may also choose for a different output scale in Liquid Notes' setting, which will trigger the incoming notes to be mapped to this. It enables you to record the output directly in your DAW, thereby requiring only one take to have it in your system.
Of course there are more feature in Liquid Notes, however these sum up its main capabilities. Watch the video for more information, and have fun playing around with the software!
