Songwriting-specific software developer Elephant Development Software has announced availability of its inaugural product, the Temptress plug-in, which they say provides inspiration and modern musical production elements within a powerful virtual instrument for RTAS-, VST-, and AU-capable workstations. Here's the company's own description of Temptress:

Temptress is a new concept for songwriting and productions. Unsurprisingly, Elephant Development Software assembled a team of top songwriters and producers to create contemporary musical content while simultaneously expertly engineering an exciting new way to integrate chord progressions and musical phrases into user's productions in any key and at any tempo they choose (using an innovative industry-leading pitch shift and time-stretch engine) -- all in realtime, locked to the host sequencer!

Temptress is both a blast and a breeze to use. The simple yet powerful browser in the Temptress plug-in window provides previews of the diverse musical content in its ever-expanding library -- all but a click away. Whether pop, rock, dance, hip-hop, or country floats your musical boat, the huge (over 3GB) TEMPTRESS CORE library's hundreds of cues have got you covered. Future libraries will provide cues in ever-expanding genres and will even work in conjunction with previous libraries to expand their creative possibilities. Feel free to utilise the plug-in's already awesome-sounding audio elements or the actual MIDI data used to create the cues. The choice is yours. Either way, simply drag-and-drop directly from Temptress to tracks in the host DAW to have stunning-sounding musical phrases immediately available at your fingertips. It's surely simplicity itself.

There are no great secrets here -- all sounds used are from the newest and most-popular synths and sound banks. Temptress even shows you which patches were used to create each cue.

Quite simply, Temptress is a catalyst for great songwriting, as well as an almost limitless musical resource for productions and remixes. Change tempo, change key, change your mind... Temptress keeps pace with your creativity as an inspirational production partner for any modern music-making endeavour.
