Melodrumatic screenshot


Melodrumatic is an audio plugin that lets you "pitch-shift" via delay (i.e. the Doppler effect) to turn unpitched audio into melodies. Controllable via MIDI or mouse :)

Available Formats



Download the latest version of Melodrumatic from the releases page, then unzip and place the individual files into the appropriate plugin folders for your respective DAWs.

For Mac, this usually means:

VST3  -->  ~/Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/VST3
AU    -->  ~/Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/Components
AAX   -->  /Library/Application Support/Avid/Audio/Plug-Ins

And for Windows, this usually means:

VST3  -->  C:\Program Files\Common Files\VST3
AU    -->  Not supported :(
AAX   -->  C:\Program Files\Common Files\Avid\Audio\Plug-Ins


(NOTE: The screenshot examples are in Ableton Live, but the steps should be relatively similar for any DAW you use.)

1. Insert Melodrumatic as an effect on the track whose output you'd like to pitch-shift (this can be either an audio or a MIDI track).

Usage step 1

2. Create a MIDI track.

Usage step 2

3. Route the MIDI track's output to the track that Melodrumatic resides on...

Usage step 3a

... and specifically to Melodrumatic.

Usage step 3b

4. (optional) If you have an external MIDI controller, assign that as the input to your MIDI track so that you can control Melodrumatic live!

Usage step 4


Please get in touch if you end up making any cool music or sounds using this, as well as if you have any questions or comments!
