You can generate a new/random melody idea over and over again, in any scale, any key, over any chord! Especially useful for singer/songwriters who have no problem coming up with chords and lyrics, but can’t seem to come up with melodies for their lyrics. for making ambient/soundtrack-ish music (certain VST instruments are tailor-made for ambient music, such as Green Oak’s Crystal, or Athereal by Psychic Modulation Software, and others). Use some of the pre-made “ambient” chord progressions from the Chord Progression Browser, and get ideas going fast! for making “chiptune”-style music (similar to the background music of video games from the mid-to-late 80s and early 90s), by using the included “RCChiptunes” soundfont. No program lets you create fun 8-bit chiptune music faster than RC! layer various melodic phrases together (on different tracks, with different instruments if you like) to create dense, polyrhythmic harmonic textures that otherwise would take a lot of time (and musical theory knowledge) to complete, in any other program!
