Rapidcompose is a phrase-based music prototyping software for composers, song-writers and musicians of all musical styles.

Version 1.21 changes:

- Chord inversions and added octave offsets can be specified by a formula; inversion description is now an integral part of the chord

- It is possible to create a new note by doubleclicking (Ctrl-click still works).

- Default note offset unit can be set in the Settings/Misc panel.

- Recording a phrase from MIDI In works again in the Phrase Editor.

- Problems with the FingerPicking Generator fixed (experienced on Windows XP).

- History data was not updated when History tab was selected. This is fixed.

- Importing a 44.1kHz audio file and converting it to 48kHz made the end of the audio silent.

- Sometimes a keyboard was rendered for audio tracks, this is fixed.

Changes since version 1.1:

- Phrase Morphing tool

- Guitar Fingerpicking Generator included

- Audio track support

- "Override Chord" button to override master track chords from the MIDI keyboard

- Track color can be specified

- Phrase name is optionally displayed over the phrases

- New track icons with pop-up help
