iTunes Description:

The world's first multi-playhead music sequencer.

"How Bach would have made a sequencer." (Create Digital Music)
"A musical feat." (Creator's Project)
"A new approach to sequencing." (XLR8R)
"Next generation music sequencer." (Ask Audio)
"A brilliant concept that has been beautifully realized." (Music App Blog)
"It’s good. So good." (iOS Mars)

BACH IN A BOX.

FUGUE MACHINE is a tool inspired by composition techniques used in Baroque music and Serialism — e.g. Bach’s canons and fugues, and Schoenberg’s twelve-tone technique. The idea was to design a tool to manipulate a melody’s speed, direction, and pitch, as well as play multiple variations of the melody simultaneously.

As it turned out, the best implementation for this was to reimagine one of the most fundamental building blocks of all music sequencers: the piano roll.

THE PIANO ROLL, REIMAGINED.

FUGUE MACHINE is the world’s first multi-playhead piano roll. Create a musical sequence and play it back with up to four playheads at once — each at various speeds, directions, and pitches. You see the playheads dance over the music sequence, and hear the complex patterns that emerge.

It’s mesmerizing.


/ Supports Ableton Link, MIDI, AudioBus, Audiobus 3 MIDI, and Inter-App Audio.

What's new in v1.4.1

// ======================
// BUG FIXES

SYSTEM SETTINGS SAVE ISSUES
In some cases, system settings were not saved between sessions. This may have caused the welcome screen to show or midi routings to reset on each launch. Resolved now.

// ======================
// ABOUT THIS UPDATE

Just a quick bug fix :]

Also, I'm still hard at work on my new project (13+ months now!). I've never worked on anything for so long... and I'm still super excited about it :] Check my twitter (@alexandernaut) for a short teaser.

Anyway, thanks again for your support, and please let me know if anything comes up.

All the best,
Alexander

iPad Screenshots:

This is worth every penny! A fantastic way to explore melody creation and just have fun. The recent addition of per playhead midi routing allows for some awesome sound combinations.

I hook my iPad up to a Novation Circuit and let three Fugue Machine playheads dabble with synth 1 while a fourth controls synth 2 and I blast out some beats. Bliss!

This is an excellent app. I normally avoid buying apps with flat GUI designs, but one video demonstration of this app won me over in an instant. The app itself provides a fantastic creative utility for rhythm, melody generation, and song composition. I have a few critiques about the UI but the developer responded to me directly about wanting to adjust those things and I'm not going to comment about them here. Suffice to say, this is a fantastic app for music creation and its ability to send on four different MIDI channels is excellent. All it needs is IAA transport controls or MIDI start/stop synch and support for time signatures. It's a winner even without.

Fugue Machine is one of the best, most innovative apps around. Also, good news, I heard from the developer recently that something is in the works.
