Chordscape is now at Version 1.2 with many new features and snapshots included. Updates include:
Chordscape contains 8GB of sound designed content derived from acoustic instruments, natural recordings, sound design, outboard effects and synthesizers. Each sound has been carefully created from scratch to fit the engine and philosophy of the library by our good friend Erick McNerney.
There are 4 sound sources, an inbuilt browser system, 4 dedicated sequencers and multiple assignable effects
The unique feature of Chordscape is that it is designed to emulate a tape machine. Once you start the Chordscape engine running you can create movement by modulating and automating parameters as it plays. This gives incredibly unique evolving sounds that never stop!
Chordscape ships with 421 snapshots in 10 different categories to get you started. Categories are:

Chordscape can be used in many different ways but it excels at creating infinite ambient soundscapes, pads and moving textures. Once you start Chordscape running it never stops, it will run forever and can be made to never repeat itself. For this reason Chordscape is truly in a league of it’s own.
We’ve used it to generate chilled-out, spaced-out ambience for hours on end. We’ve gone to the shops and come back to find it still churning out never heard before sounds.
We love Chordscape and we think you will too.
