Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , ,

Xequence is an advanced linear MIDI Sequencer and Keyboard / Controller for iPhone and iPad. It makes a great MIDI companion with apps like AUM.

NOTE: This app does not produce any sound by itself! It can control OTHER apps or hardware via MIDI!

What’s New in Version 1.5

– MIDI File Import: Import type 0, 1 or 2 standard MIDI files, including controllers, program changes and track titles, with various options and automatic creation of tracks and instruments.
– MIDI File Export: Export type 1 standard MIDI files, including controllers, program changes and instrument titles, with various options (entire song, only selected parts, etc.).
– MIDI Program Changes: Can be inserted on any tracks at any points in the song, with full backtracing just like with controllers (when changing song position, previous program changes are automatically found and sent).
– Global Clipboard: Parts from any number of tracks can be copied and pasted (either linked or independent) between arbitrary tracks and song positions, or even between different projects. Extremely smart and robust handling of linked parts and track assignment. Options can be found in new “+” menu at the bottom left.
– Up to 12 controllers per instrument (In-App Purchase).
– Arranger: “Insert empty part” (in new “+” menu).

IMPROVEMENTS:

– Arranger: More accurate drawing of parts.
– Controllers: Each controller now has a toggle whether or not to show it on the Keyboard screen.
– Controllers: Added three more standard controllers (Effect 1-3).
– Files are now always sorted by name.
– Faster deselection when tapping empty area when “Single Tap Selects None” is enabled.
– Recording: Notes triggered during pre-roll are now recorded even with the song loop active and the pre-roll outside the loop.

Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , , , ,

Refraktions is an 8-track generative MIDI sequencer with artificial intelligence that processes input over time to create loops tailored to each individual user.

I have to admit I was really excited to purchase this app and then when I did it was a tad disappointing (sorry dev) BUT this new update came today and solved a lot of the issues so I just had to publish a video. I hope you enjoy it!

SEQ3X64 MIDI Step Sequencer
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , ,

SEQ3X64 is a MIDI step sequencer, with two melodic tracks and one drums track. Each track can be from 2 to 64 steps long. Up to 16 projects can be stored in the sequencer memory, each project containing up 16 sequences on each track.

Each step on the melodic tracks has its own configuration (note number, velocity and gate length), and can be tied to next step in order to get any note length. The two melodic tracks can also be transposed in real time.

The drums track can trigger 16 different events (note number, velocity and gate length). Each step on drums track can trigger the 16 events at the same time.

The three tracks can be configured independently in terms of direction (forward, reverse, alternate) and time division (1/4, 1/8, 1/16 and 1/32). Each track can also be used in triplet mode and can have a different number of steps. Tempo can be set from 30 to 300 bpm. SEQ3X64 can be clocked internally or externally, and it can provide MIDI synchronization data to other MIDI devices as a Master.

SEQ3X64 has been specifically designed to stay compatible with older iOS versions (iOS 5.1 minimum). A nice way to recycle an older iPad…

Tutorial for the application is available here : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tsUXwCLDJGU

IMPORTANT : SEQ3X64 requires a iOS compatible MIDI interface connected to the iPad via a Camera Connection Kit (for iPads 1/2/3) or a Lightning USB cable (for iPads 4or greater, iPad Air, iPad Mini and iPad Pro)

sequencism is a music sketchbook tool that allows the creation of short and simple pieces of music. It is designed to provide a traditional user interface of track and piano roll editors, while taking advantage of the touch-screen capabilities of the iPad.

Note that the main goal of this app is to work as a sketchbook, thus it is not recommended to use sequencism to produce complex songs or to play songs live on stage.
