Genome on sale!

There sure are a lot of sales today. I had a look at Wikipedia to figure out if this is some national holiday or something. While it is a busy day in history, the most likely thing I can find is that this is the day Leonidas died, in 480 BCE! The Spartan guy from the movie 300. On this day we remember Leonidas, first of his name, in his valiant attempt to defend Greece from Persian invasion. Never forget!

Also Genome is $8! This is my favorite MIDI sequencer for iOS, and one of my few Essential apps. With so many apps now supporting Virtual MIDI, it is great to have a sequencer to drive them all!

I've done a couple of tutorials for this. Embedded below is my video overview, and here is a recent written tutorial detailing all of the steps From Setup to Song in Genome.

SunrizerXS is free!

The iPhone version of Sunrizer is free! There are no details on why it is free today, or how long it will stay free, so grab it now!

Even if you don't have an iPhone, you may one day and on that day you will deeply regret not having this impressive synth. It is unique among the subtractive synth apps, with a morphing engine to glide between different patches as you play. If you don't already have it for the iPad (link to review), consider this a demo!

SpaceWiz Official Videos

After yesterday's rampant speculation about what SpaceWiz actually does, we now have a great intro from Jordan along with 5 tutorial videos.

The intro video alone does a great job of explaining what is going on here. My guess was correct! The on-screen planets and particles are all doing their own randomish ambient thing, and you can play over that with an independent synth.

It looks like a cross between chessy fun and beautiful ambiance!

Genome 1.1.1 adds MIDI Learn for everything!

Genome has it's 10th update since release, and it just keeps getting better and better!

New in this version:

  • MIDI Learn. You can bind a MIDI note or CC to trigger any pattern or song step. 
  • Added Song navigation buttons (MIDI bindable) Rewind, previous, next and end
  • Revamped pattern info dialog to add tabs and make more readable 
  • New Pattern Option: Launch Quantization for controlling when patterns can begin playing. Options are: 1 / 2 / 4 bars or 1/4th, 1/8th, 1/16th notes. 
  • New Pattern Option: One-shot flag. Pattern plays once then turns itself off. 
  • Genome can open .SNG files from email or another app now.

With all of these MIDI assignments you could be launching patterns in Genome while it is in the background, via an external controller like the Launchpad or APC20/40, or even over networked WiFi MIDI from another iDevice.

I'm also pretty excited by the idea of having different styles and quantizations for clips. It'll be nice to fire-and-forget on some one shot patterns.
