Kameleono Is An Innovative Plug-In For Arpeggiation And MIDI Sidechaining In Any DAW

This clever plug-in is an arpeggiator, sidechain MIDI multi-effect and even has a built-in synth section. Check out the video of it in action.

Back at the end of 2016 we ran a story on a clever Max For Live device that combined arpeggiation with sidechaining to provide an innovative and unique way of creating patterns in Ableton Live. Spurred on by the success of that M4L module, the developer has now adapted it into a full VST / AU plug-in that can be used in any DAW. Kameleono (for that is its name) now features sample-accurate processing of MIDI notes, a polyphonic arpeggiator, unlimited sequencer, flexible I/O and even a built-in synth. 

Here's the full feature list:

Kameleono is a multi-effect MIDI plugin with a modular design.
Every module can be used separately, or in conjunction with other modules.

  • The Flow Module handles note mapping such as Arpeggiator and Sequencer.
  • The Express Module handles velocity and various MIDI controls.
  • The Sync Module handles timing and synchronization.
  • The Hold Module handles note hold functionality.
  • The In:Out Module handles input and output settings.
  • The Audio Module is actually a  basic synthesizer.

Check it out in action in this video. 

The developer continues: "Kameleono is unique. In addition to the standard MIDI-In / MIDI-Out you’ll find on any other MIDI FX plugin, there is also a side-chain MIDI input called Pattern-In.

The Pattern-In acts as a data source for Kameleono’s internal engine and can be used for Arpeggiator Patterns, Sequencer Notes, Sync Markers, etc."

It's certainly an interesting new way to program and work with MIDI, and at the price it's got to be worth checking out!
