InstaScale

Instascale is a newly invented, scale oriented instrument with only 16 keys to play with. But wait, is that enough? Turns out it’s more than enough. Unlike the standard keyboard instruments where each key can only play a single note, Instascale has a set of smart keys, each one capable of playing different notes. The new note will be based on the given scale, last note’s position and the action of the key assigned to it.

Instascale is available as a MIDI processor plugin that can be used in any DAW that supports VST instrument plugins (with MIDI routing) or AU MIDI effect plugins, given you the freedom to play any instrument you choose without any limitations regarding the sound and hardware.

What can I use it for?

  • Learning. With all the scales included in the plugin and various information displayed on the interface, Instascale can be a valuable source to study and learn different scales and modes very quickly.
  • Ear Training. Get familiar with the scales in different keys and modes without having to know how to play them. Train your ear to recognize intervals and distances quickly. Using the home feature you can stay on a certain note and see what feelings it creates compared to the other notes of that scale.
  • Serious playing. Instascale might seem like a strange and unfamiliar instrument at first but don’t be fooled, like any other instrument with enough practice and dedication you can play a kind of mind blowing music that you could have never done with any other instrument out there.
  • Experimenting and getting inspired. Considering that you can never hit a wrong note with Instascale, just play random keys and get inspired by the unpredictable but musically pleasant results. Happy accidents always happen. You don’t even have to use your MIDI keyboard, you can use your drum pad/kit, map the pads to the correct keys and start playing. You’d be surprised how cool it feels and sounds.
  • Breaking the rules. The foundation of the plugin is based on doing things differently, knowing the rules first and then breaking them. So let it inspire you to go even further and find new ways to create music without limiting your mind to the concept of black and white keys and minor and major scales. The plugin guards the rules but lets you change them, bend them or break them. It lets you change the scale, root and home notes on the fly, do crazy runs, it even allows you to create your own experimental scales.

InstaChord 2

W.A Production believes that creative expression should be simple, intuitive, and inspiring. When you’re making music, you need the right chords to set the tone, and Instachord 2 delivers exactly what you called for… and fast! 

The team at W.A Production were so blown away with the reception to the original Instachord that they couldn’t resist developing that concept into a fully-fledged chord creator and mini-sequencer. Simple enough to be used by anyone, but with the power to make professional music, this dynamic MIDI processing plugin is the chord creation and sequencer tool that will take your music to the next level. 

Pattern Editor

After releasing Instachord, an oft-requested update was to gain more control over strums and chord playback. W.A Production took that note and ran with it, creating a brand new interface window, the Pattern Editor. Here you’ll create your own patterns and sequences, dragging notes around in the same way as your DAW. Produce soaring synth arpeggios, pounding piano chords, or delicate guitar riffs. You get full management over time signature, play mode, and velocity with creative editing controls for strum programming. 

AI Generation

Adapted from the popular InstaComposer plugin, this generative button will take the existing scale and spawn brand-new riffs based on complex algorithms and a touch of randomisation. Always musical and inspirational, these new ideas can be tweaked in the same way as your own patterns so that they fit perfectly into your song.

Hold Modes

Compared to the original Instachord, this new version has many more playback options for fretting and picking notes. 5 in total, covering different behaviour for holding notes and toggling chords. Whatever the instrument you’re playing, there will be an authentic playback mode to suit. 

Custom Chords

Edit existing chords or create your own by selecting intervals between notes to make custom chords. Alternatively, play in notes with your MIDI keyboard to help Instachord 2 learn your favourite chord shapes.

MIDI Drag & Drop

Thanks to the latest update, you can now also Drag and Drop MIDI from the pattern editor right to your DAW.

So Many Chords    

With over 60 chord shapes to choose from, you can explore inversions, voicings, augmentations, and extensions like never before, making your music sound more interesting and compelling. Choose your own chords from the extensive selection, or hit the Generator button to ask Instachord 2 for inspiration. Set up to 24 different chords and switch between them using the chord keys. Transpose the current chords to any other key you desire with a couple of clicks. 

Playing Chords & Picks

There are more ways to play chords and picks than ever before, now all fully customizable in the Pattern Editor. For example, a key can be assigned to strum the top 3 notes of the chord and another to play a riff on the other 3 notes. You can also play individual notes of the chord separately. So it’s possible to manually arpeggiate or strum chords. 

Action Stations

Newly integrated into the main playback keys, action keys can be set to transpose by octave or semitone, providing an easy way to move chords away whilst playing live. 

Flexibility

Instachord 2 is highly customisable and users can change many aspects to match their needs. Select your own UI size, type of playback, key configuration, and position. You can even lock the Chord and Action keys so that they don’t change whilst you experiment with more presets and settings. 

Factory Presets

Although Instachord 2 allows you to program chords and riffs with simplicity, it’s even easier to use the preset system to take care of things. You’ll never be stuck for ideas with loads of carefully designed presets for both chord sequences and patterns. Suitable for keys, guitars, synths, and many other types of instruments, these presets make ideal jumping-off points for your next song.

InstaComposer

Sometimes inspiration comes at you thick and fast… but sometimes not. Instacomposer is your saviour when creativity runs dry, or when you just need your talent topped up. This MIDI generation plugin can conjure melody, rhythm, bass, pads and chords at the click of a button – all using artificial intelligence to create genuinely useful and musical riffs. This is the next step in automatic composition, using a complex algorithm to determine notes, harmonies and chords based on your personal preferences. With this much composing power at your fingertips, you’ll never be stuck in a musical rut again.

Artificial Intelligence

The backbone of Instacomposer is a behind-the-scenes decision-making matrix that creates notes based on both mathematics and musical knowledge. Plus, the artificial intelligence factors in a whole host of parameters that you can set in the bottom panel, from repetition probability to the complexity of chord shapes. Harmonic variations, strumming techniques and note density are just some of the myriad of options that can be adjusted, feeding the algorithm your own personal set of preferences. 

Total Flexibility

Instacomposer is as unique as you are, taking into account your chosen scale, time signature and riff length. Choose to create new sequences for one, some or all of the 5 tracks, and in any combination of melody, rhythm, bass, pad and chord. 

MIDI Editor

The onboard MIDI editor can be used to tweak the output of Instacomposer within the interface itself. This means that you can manipulate the music before it leaves the plugin, adding your own creativity and personal style on top of what the plugin has offered you. Move, copy and delete notes within a familiar piano-roll interface, even changing the velocity. 

MIDI Export

Drag the MIDI tracks straight out of Instacomposer and into your DAW for ultimate ease of use. Alternatively, set up multi-channel instruments and route the MIDI from Instacomposer into your favourite VSTi’s. In this way, you can preview all 5 tracks simultaneously, without ever leaving the Instacomposer environment. 

Presets

8Instacomposer includes a huge number of factory presets; useful musical motifs to get you up and running quickly which can eventually become the basis for whole tracks. 

MIDIQ

Sometimes you can sit down in the studio and you’re just fresh out of ideas. That’s when you can reach for MIDIQ to kickstart concepts for chord sequences, harmonies and bass lines. MIDIQ is an innovative MIDI sequence generator for both studio and live applications, featuring a unique and highly interactive user interface.

Generating near-limitless chord sequence possibilities, MIDIQ uses a simple pattern language for the definition of repeating chords. The layout resembles a slot machine so the interface is very visual. In fact, you don’t need any knowledge of music theory to get some great results from MIDIQ.

Whenever you add or change a pattern symbol, the algorithm generates a chord for this position and also creates a set of eight alternative chord sequences for the current pattern of symbols. A click on one of the chord boxes is enough to switch to a new variant. Truly inspiring stuff.

Preset data is automatically saved in DAW sessions and can be exported for import into other sessions. Equally, copy-and-paste, drag-and-drop and drag to-host functionalities are all included for ultimate flexibility. And it doesn’t stop there… experiment with feeding a chord progression into an arpeggiator, running several plug-in instances in parallel, generating polyrhythmic patterns and finding interesting chord progressions between two or more chords.

Create chords

MIDIQ runs in any DAW with MIDI routing support. Place the plug-in on the generator track or use multiple instances of the plug-in assigned to different tracks (e.g. to layer the output for the creation of very unusual, highly polyphonic progressions or to generate polyrhythmic loops). Use the copy-and-paste functionality to copy parameters from one plug-in to another. Preset data is automatically saved in DAW sessions, so nothing gets lost. A simplified piano roll display shows the generated chord sequence. Chords from the piano roll can be dragged to the host sequencer.

Edit chords

Click on a chord to manually change the chord symbols as desired. Whenever you specify a chord, the corresponding pattern element is replaced by a lock
symbol, and the music intelligence algorithms create a new, matching chord progression. By clicking on the unlock button, the pattern element returns to its previous state.

Explore sequences

Hit “Play” just as you do in a DAW. The chord sequence is played back in a loop, and the current loop position is displayed by yellow and blue boxes around the pattern and chord symbols, respectively. Click on one of the chord boxes to explore alternative chord sequences for the current pattern of symbols. The new variant of the sequence will be played back with the next loop onset and the time until the next onset is displayed by a yellow countdown bar. Click on the button again to restore the main sequence.

Trigger chords

Use your keyboard or an external MIDI keyboard to trigger chords in your progression manually. Duration and volume of your input are used to create rhythmic and dynamic variations of the generated chord progressions. It is also possible to record a MIDI sequence in your DAW and use it as a trigger for the generated chords in MIDIQ.

The Ultimate MIDI Bundle 2 is available to PC and Mac users (VST2, VST3, AU and AAX).
