Hey guys! We're back with another blog/review today and it is non other than the latest update for one of our favorite plugin companies "Mixed In Key" and their flagship plugin series "Captain Plugins"!
We love "Captain Plugins" and their plugins seems to never disappoint us. From captain Chords to Captain melody, Beat, Deep or Play, all of these plugins are the industry leading plugins on their individual platforms.
We last reviewed "Captain Plugins" by "Mixed In Key" almost a year ago but they have come back some astonishing updates and we weren't expecting any less!
These plugins have been created for one solid purpose only and that is to help you get your ideas from your brain, straight onto your computer!
Imagine a single plugin for creating chords, and another one for creating melodies, then another one for making beats and so on! But all of them are made by the same company and the interfaces are pretty much the same with no confusion?? That's a WIN WIN we say!
Lets take look at some of the specs of each individual plugin that comes with the latest update:
