This week saw the songwriting-specific software developer announce a new Temptress plugin, designed to help create and arrange new music

lephant Development Software has announced availability of its inaugural product in the form of the Temptress plug-in — providing inspiration and modern musical production elements within a virtual instrument for RTAS-, VST-, and AU-capable workstations.

Elephant Development Software assembled a team of top songwriters and producers to create contemporary musical content, while simultaneously engineering a new way to integrate chord progressions and musical phrases into user’s productions, in any key and at any tempo. Using a pitch shift and time-stretch engine, adjustments can be made in realtime and are locked to the host sequencer.

The browser in the Temptress plug-in window provides previews of the musical content in its library. Whether pop, rock, dance, hip-hop, or country floats your musical boat, the Temptress core library includes over 3GB of cues, plus future libraries will provide cues in various genres, which will work in conjunction with previous libraries. Drag-and-drop directly from Temptress, to tracks in the host DAW, to have musical phrases immediately available. All sounds used are from the newest and most-popular synths and sound banks, and Temptress shows you which patches were used to create each cue.

Temptress can be ordered directly from the dedicated online Store for $149 (approx. £89).
