Since the release of version 2 of the MIDI Harmonizer, I got a lot of requests from many users, in particular EWI players. Since then I've been working to include all kinds of new features into the MIDI Harmonizer. During the coming months I will release version 3, which I'm testing at the moment. Apart from a number of new functions and MIDI cc functions, the most exciting to me are the forcing of non-harmonic notes to fit into selected scales as well as the possibility to set the MIDI channel for each individual note in the 4-note harmonized chord.

Thusfar only harmonized chords triggered by a harmonic note (i.e. a note fitting into the selected scale) could be harmonized to fit the selected scale. Non-harmonic notes were treated as passing notes and the corresponding chord was not harmonized. In version 3 you can now selected whether or not you want the non-harmonic note/chord to be harmonized/forced into the selected scale. If you select non-harmonic forcing, you can play whatever you want, the result will always fit into the selected scale. Good for fast licks that need to stay in a certain scale!
In version 3 you can have each individual note of the triggered 4-note chord to be send out on any particular MIDI channel. This allows some nice setups like the lowest note playing a bass guitar sound, the two middle notes playing some pad sound, and the highest note palying a lead sound.
I'm testing version 3 at the moment, both with Apple Logic as well as Ableton Live. Existing version 2 users can request a test version to try it out, and will receive version 3 automatically when released.
