Woodstepper Sampler Step Sequencer

Woodstepper Sampler Step Sequencer

The WoodStepper is a sequencer having both audio and midi out.
It consists of 4 independent 8-steps sequencers which can be linked to a 16, 24 or 32 steps sequencer.
Each step can send 4 midi messages (note on, CC, …) to 2 midi channels.
The audio part for each sequencer has a pitch (down) shifter, (Moog lowpass) filter with ASR envelope, saturator, amplitude ASR envelope and delay line which can all be set independently per step.
The audio sources can be the track audio, sampled audio or the built-in VCO.
The app can be used stand-alone (device audio input and output) or as a plugin in a DAW.
In this case it has to be inserted in an audio track and not in an instrument track as WoodStepper is still an audio effects plugin with additional midi input and output.

Grid Music Adds Randomize and MIDI Out!
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , , ,

Grid Music is a 2-dimensional MIDI step sequencer. 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.

What’s new:
MIDI output. Grid Music can now control other synthesizers via MIDI.
Randomization. Tap the Randomize button to randomize the values of a pattern’s note cells.
Undo. When editing a pattern, you can undo changes like randomization, adding or removing connections, changing cell values, and more.
More scale options for pitch quantization, including triads and sevenths.
The synthesizer now supports a sustain parameter.

• Send MIDI notes and control change messages to compatible synthesizer apps. If you have a compatible MIDI interface and the Lightning to USB Camera Adapter, Grid Music can control an external MIDI synthesizer.
• Easy to use built-in synthesizer featuring envelope settings, PWM, and vibrato.
• Randomize button for quickly exploring new melodies.
• Pitch quantization ensures that notes are always in key and makes it simple to create chord progressions. Includes several scale and chord options.
• Multiple levels of undo while editing patterns.
• Perform songs with perfect timing using synchronized pattern queueing.
• Support for Ableton Link allows Grid Music to play in time with other apps and devices.
• Support for the iOS Files app makes it easy to organize your compositions and access them from multiple devices.

Senode Graphical Step Sequencer
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , ,

SENODE is a new music composition app for iPad. It extends the concept of linear step sequencers to a freely connectable graph with an unlimited number of instruments traveling along the edges. The simple “finite state machine” model allows you to create complex polyphonic sequences and play them in real-time.


(quick start video)

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!

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
