Musaico Audio Sequencer For iPad

Clip it. Loop it. Mix it. Drop it. Musaico is the most streamlined interface for recording and remixing music. Record, loop, layer, and remix sounds in real time, from layering guitar parts to looping rap beats. Designed and optimized as a universal app for the iPad and iPhone/iPod Touch platforms, you can record your musical ideas quickly and intuitively from anywhere.

Musaico features a new compositional paradigm consisting of integrated loop-based and timeline-based approaches. First, quickly record or import sound material, organize it, and loop it. Experiment with sounds by instantly triggering clips that will automatically play in time together. Then, drag clips into the timeline to create compositions with multitracker precision and control. Export those compositions back into loops and continue to refine your ideas in real time! When running on the iPhone, Musaico offers all of the features as for the iPad, except for the timeline features.

What’s New in Version 2.3


Use the iPad’s processing to its fullest extent by triggering samples like a traditional hardware sampler

– Enter Live Mode by tapping the Production/Live switch. Your clips and groups will become arranged into a grid of large buttons.
– Clips will begin playing the moment your finger touches the screen. Stop playing or adjust loop settings with the control buttons. Adjust volume for each clip with the volume indicator control.
– Move clips around in the grid by tapping the Lock/Unlock switch, then dragging the clips around.
– For a higher degree of control, switch back to Production mode, tap the upper left button on a clip or group, the Edit Quantization to OFF, 1/8, 1/4, or 4/4. Now while in Live Mode, the clip will trigger immediately (OFF), or exactly on the half beat (1/8), full beat (1/4), or each 4th beat (4/4).

UI Improvements
Now you can edit a clip by tapping on the upper left hand corner of each clip to edit, duplicate, set quantization or delete the clip.

Features included in Musaico:

– Real time, instant touch-and-play control interface. Record, play, import, and edit sound material without interrupting the audio stream
– Automatic beat alignment – sound material plays in time together
– Automatic or manual play speed adjustment
– Import from iPod library (supports non-DRM .m4a, .mp3, .aac, .caf, and .wav)
– Import from iOS clipboard using audio paste
– Precisely edit sound material with dynamic, real time waveform views – pinch to zoom, swipe to scroll, and tap to play
– Group sound material to play in time together
– Multiple timeline arrangement views with mute and solo, track volume, and metronome controls (iPad only)
– Export themes from timeline into loop-based clips (iPad only)
– Share clips, clip groups, or timeline themes via e-mail (.wav or .m4a formats for iPad, .m4a for iPhone)
– Demo projects included (3 for iPad and 1 for iPhone)

Musaico is available for $9.99

★ Reviews ★

“This is a great app. Experienced musicians and laypeople alike can enjoy their music within seconds.” – AppAdvice.com

“Another bold step forward in iPad musical devices, which turns networks of nodes into bumping beats.” – Belinda Lanks – Fast Company’s Co.Design

“Relaxing and Fun. If you’re the sort who enjoys playing with meditative toys like tabletop Zen sand gardens, you’ll probably enjoy this relaxing and visually appealing sound app.” – Gianna LaPin – 148apps.com

“More than anything, it’ll be a calming oasis in the chaos that is a typical day in a modern city. If it all gets too much, as it inevitably does, just plug in your earphones and sculpt some sounds by moving around the nodes on the screen, simply making music and letting the ambient chimes wash over you. Until your boss tells you to stop messing around and get back to work, that is.” – Kevin Holmes – thecreatorsproject.com

“If you like generative, reactive or ambient music- Nodebeat HD is a vital addition to your app collection. It is easily on par with the likes of Bloom,Slewpi,Aura flux, Curtis, Reactable and the rest and is super user-friendly…You can get lost in this ambient world for hours if you are just into playing at home, but if you are part of the new wave of live performers that are using iOS devices for live performances then you too should grab this app! You will astound your audience with mesmerizing spaced out grooves like never before!” – Zac Laurent – www.evolutionarymusic.org

“Addictive – Like a Deep House or Techno version of Brian Eno’s Bloom and Trope apps. Uptempo ambient for headphones at work. Kids love it, too. One of the best generative music apps I’ve found.” – Top Review

NodeBeat is available for $1.99
