App Store Description:

cykle is an innovative, semi-generative melodic step sequencer for iOS that is based around the idea of sequencing individual musical parameters (such as pitch, velocity, length, transposition, etc.) independently, by way of decoupled sequencer lanes. thus, the interplay between simple elements can yield complex and musically interesting results.

nb: cykle does not make sound by itself, you will need to connect it to a MIDI-compatible synthesizer app on your device, load it in an AUv3-compatible host (such as Audiobus or AUM) or connect it to an external synthesizer, computer or any other sound generating device.

features:
- works as an Audio Unit (AUv3) MIDI plugin or as a standalone (CoreMIDI) app
- sample-accurate sequencing engine
- universal layout with landscape and portrait modes
- slick and responsive native UI
- configurable tempo, scale and key
- each channel can be routed to a separate MIDI destination and channel
- each channel sends MIDI note- and pitch-bend data as well as an arbitrary number of continuous control messages
- AUv3 state-saving
- randomization
- save and load patterns
- independent sequencer lanes for various musical parameters:
• pulse
• pitch
• rest
• step length
• chance
• velocity
• accent
• gate length
• chance
• invert
• accidental
• ratchet
• transpose
• octave
• pitch bend
• mappable MIDI CC values (e.g., filter cutoff, resonance, envelope, etc.)

- sequences can be instantly manipulated by various actions (shifted left/right/up/down, rotated, randomized, mirrored, doubled, bisected)
- configurable clock division rate per sequencer lane
- Ableton Link support
- MIDI clock output
- an offset can be added to timing to compensate for MIDI latency
- works offline
- no push notifications
- no ads or in-app purchases
- no third-party behavioural tracking tools
- ongoing development and support, many new features on the roadmap

Off to a good start, but really needs a way to tie notes together. Add that, and I’m in!
