Senode Update Adds New Features
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , ,

SENODE – GRAPHICAL STEP SEQUENCER – SENODE is a new music composition app for iPad. It extends the concept of linear step sequencers to a graph with unlimited directions and instruments. The simple “finite state machine” model allows you to create complex polyphonic sequences and play them in real-time!

1.0.3 Sep 22, 2018

– new emitter settings panel
– added MIDI bindings for emitter actions
– added generic MIDI CC bindings for synth and clock control
– added support for Bluetooth LE MIDI devices
– improved MIDI device selection
– performance and stability improvement

CREATE COMPLEX SEQUENCES WITH RANDOMIZATION

The core of Senode is a graph of Nodes connected by Edges. You decide if it behaves like a simple vending machine or a complex pinball game. Each Node triggers a sound when activated, while Edges determine the direction of travel. Instruments are controlled by Emitters which send their Tokens onto the graph. That means, you can compose a generative music piece for a whole orchestra using the graph notation and a couple of Emitters! It gets more interesting if you add random directions or emit multiple Tokens at different time positions.

GRAPHICAL MULTI-TOUCH INTERFACE

You can compose and perform your music live using the intuitive multi-touch interface. The on-screen keyboard helps you to visualize and edit notes assigned to the currently selected Node. Drag and connect Nodes with multiple fingers or use the lasso tool. Activate a sequence by sending Tokens onto the graph. Use your fingers to step through sequences manually or tap the master clock. All synth parameters are accessible from the main panel with multi-touch as well.

INTEGRATED SYNTHESIZER

Each Emitter contains a simple but powerful subtractive synthesizer with main OSC (sine, saw, square), sub OSC (sine), 1-pole lowpass filter, stereo reverb and ADSR envelope. Try the demo patches to get inspired!

MIDI CONTROL

Use a drum kit, wearable sensors or any other MIDI device to control the steps of Senode. Enjoy the unique experience of being your own master clock!

CONTROL MUSIC APPS AND EXTERNAL DEVICES

Senode is the perfect sequencer for all MIDI-capable apps. If you connect a MIDI interface, you can even control your hardware synths with the app.

EASY COMPOSITION WITH MIDI INPUT AND STEP RECORDING

Use the step record function to create new nodes on the fly, either from single notes or with chord detection. For advanced compositions, we recommend to connect a MIDI keyboard via lightning adapter and capture your song ideas as you play.

REALTIME CONTROL

Senode is made for live music performance. There are no default “beats” or “bars” and all actions are performed in real time. However, Tokens can be quantized to a master clock (16th resolution) and support catch-up, which means you can hit all functions like a drummer “on the spot” and stay in sync, even if you’re too early or a little late. By the way, the really cool stuff will happen if you break free from 4/4 bar schemes, start your sequences on off-beat timings or create crazy polyrhythmic cycles…

KEY FEATURES

– innovative non-linear graphical sequencer with draggable multi-touch interface
– integrated polyphonic synthesizer with sine wave, square, saw and noise oscillators, ADSR, filter, reverb
– unlimited number of steps and directions: cycles, randomized, one-shot
– real-time sequencer control with master clock and catch-up quantization
– full MIDI binding support for all sequencer operations like step, emit, tick, trigger or clear
– support for single notes or chords with velocity, legato or fixed-length notes
– chord detection, hold and replace modes
– transpose and clock divide functions
– polyphonic traversal with unlimited number of tokens and different instruments on the same graph
– quickly record nodes or chords via on-screen keybard or MIDI input
– control other music apps or external gear via MIDI
– comes with tutorial and example patches that you can instantly play
