Let's Play with Fugue Machine

As a change of pace I'm happy to present a new non-synth related Let's Play! Fugue Machine is another app that sees a lot of use from me, but I've been remiss in doing a video for it! I love using it to sequence a synth or synth app while I'm working on a patch, because it is so easy to change the melody up when my ADHD gets bored.

Video Description:

Fugue Machine is a unique sequencer that lets you quickly develop rich melodies in a highly interactive interface. It's a lot of fun, so Let's Play with it! If you enjoyed this please consider supporting this series by sponsoring them on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/discchord
