PolyPhase AU Generative Sequencer
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , , ,

PolyPhase MIDI Sequencer Audio Unit

PolyPhase is a generative sequencer. Melodies on a Master Track are created on the fly & copied, with phase offsets, to Slave Tracks. This structure, along with the interplay of various probabilities, leads to unique melodies and rhythms.

You can disable the generation of notes & draw your own Sequences, or select some of the randomization functions

Sequence external hardware, other iOS synths, or use the included Wavetable Synthesizer!

PolyPhase AU Generative Sequencer

– 4 independent Sequencers with their own rate, direction, transposition & other properties
– Disable the generation of notes to draw your own, or use some of the intelligent functions provided
– Random Euclid & Drum Sequences
– The Wavetable Synth + FX lets you use PolyPhase even if you don’t own any external Instruments
– Filter notes to a Global Key / Scale and selectable Chord Masks
– Save / Load Presets
– Snapshots for install recall of your Sequences
– Intelligently Randomize and Morph your Sequences & Synth sounds
– Accepts external MIDI clock & can provide clock to other devices
– Audiobus (Audio / State) & Inter-App Audio support

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

– 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

Grid Music Adds Velocity Cells
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , ,

Grid Music is a handy little step sequencer with probability. I did a demo / review of the app and realized that I really like this one. This update is very nice.

What’s new in Grid Music v2.2.0:

• New: Velocity Cells

Velocity cells (stars) change the loudness and MIDI velocity of all notes when active. If a velocity cell is set to the lowest value, it is a rest (labelled “—”). If a rest is active, note cells will not make any sound and no MIDI note messages will be sent on that step.

Use velocity cells to add dynamics to your patterns, or create variations on a sequence of notes by adding a sequence of rests with a different interval. The new “16 Step Velocity” template can be used as a starting point for this technique.

• New: Octave Range

You can now adjust the range of note cells from 1 to 5 octaves.

• New: Added templates featuring velocity cells.
• Changed: The default MIDI velocity is now 80, or mezzo-forte (labelled “mf” on velocity cells).
• Changed: The full volume of the built-in synthesizer is louder.
• Changed: The Shift setting has a wider range, from -3 to +3 octaves.
• Changed: Pattern Length is now called Measure Length.
• Fixed: The Play button is now easier to tap.
• Fixed: Playback no longer stops when deleting the current pattern (if there is one before or after to replace it).
• Fixed: Document thumbnails would sometimes not be updated.

Grid Music is a miniature workshop for creative MIDI sequencing. It can be used to compose classic 16-step patterns, but can also create loops, random branches, and polyrhythm. Its 5×5 grid allows for countless arrangements of melody and timbre while keeping the entire composition visible and easy to understand. Pitch and rhythm can be directly manipulated by touch, and the structure of a pattern can be altered in just a few taps.
