◆ Reviews ◆

"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

"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 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

Senode

playlist_add Wishlist

iTunes Description:

SENODE - GRAPHICAL STEP SEQUENCER

Senode is an innovative music composition app based on finite state machines. It works like a modular step sequencer with polyphonic steps and probabilistic choices between routes, which makes it perfect for algorithmic composition. In addition, all sequencer actions are MIDI bindable, so the steps can controlled in real time from drums, sensors or other apps – a real live-performance instrument.

"Senode is something quite different when it comes to sequencing" - Create Digital Music

"If you search a new unique sequencer for iOS than check out Senode." - Synth Anatomy

"A Killer App!" - A4iRebirth


CREATE COMPLEX SEQUENCES WITH RANDOMIZATION

The core of Senode is a graph of Nodes connected by Edges. You decide if it behaves like a simple vending machine or a complex pinball game. Each Node triggers a sound when activated, while Edges determine the direction of travel. Instruments are controlled by Emitters which send their Tokens onto the graph. That means, you can compose a generative music piece for a whole orchestra using the graph notation and a couple of Emitters! It gets more interesting if you add random directions or emit multiple Tokens at different time positions.


GRAPHICAL MULTI-TOUCH INTERFACE

You can compose and perform your music live using the intuitive multi-touch interface. The on-screen keyboard helps you to visualize and edit notes assigned to the currently selected Node. Drag and connect Nodes with multiple fingers. Activate a sequence by sending Tokens onto the graph. Use your fingers to step through sequences manually or tap the master clock. All synth parameters are accessible from the main panel with multi-touch as well.


INTEGRATED SYNTHESIZER

Each Emitter contains a simple but powerful subtractive synthesizer with main OSC (sine, saw, square), sub OSC (sine), 1-pole lowpass filter, stereo reverb and ADSR envelope. Try the demo patches to get inspired!


MIDI CONTROL AND STEP RECORDING

Use the step record function to create new nodes on the fly, either from single notes or with chord detection. Use a drum kit, wearable sensors or any other MIDI device to control the steps of Senode. Enjoy the unique experience of being your own master clock!


CONTROL MUSIC APPS AND EXTERNAL DEVICES

Senode is the perfect sequencer for all MIDI-capable apps. Play in sync with other apps using Ableton Link. If you connect a MIDI interface, you can even control your hardware synths with the app.


REALTIME CONTROL

Senode is made for live music performance. There are no default "beats" or "bars" and all actions are performed in real time. However, Tokens can be quantized to a master clock (16th resolution) and support catch-up, which means you can hit all functions like a drummer "on the spot" and stay in sync, even if you're too early or a little late. By the way, the really cool stuff will happen if you break free from 4/4 bar schemes, start your sequences on off-beat timings or create crazy polyrhythmic cycles...

Rozeta Sequencer Suite

playlist_add Wishlist

iTunes Description:

Rozeta is a suite of MIDI sequencers and controllers that lets you explore a new, freeform approach to sequencing and controlling mobile music apps.

The app contains 10 MIDI Audio Units (a totally new feature in iOS11) in a single package, which can be loaded in compatible MIDI AU hosts (AUM, Cubasis 2, ApeMatrix, Sequencism).

1) Rozeta Bassline: a monosequencer based on the popular Troublemaker sequencer. Obviously comes with all the randomization and mutation features. Up to 8 patterns per sequence, with Follow Actions. Transpose using MIDI.

2) Rozeta Rhythm: a euclidean drum sequencer with mutations per instrument and polyrhythms. Comes with configurable key mappings for many popular drum apps.

3) Rozeta X0X: classic TR-styles step sequencer for drum machines. Supports triplets, polyrhythms and mutations per channel. Optionally emulates the exact timing jitter pattern of the legendary TR-808

4) Rozeta LFO: a triple MIDI LFO generator lets you modulate CC parameters of your MIDI instruments. Apply amplitude modulation to each wave for more organic behavior. Optionally syncs to tempo.

5) Rozeta XY: a double XY Controller Pad for generating 4 simultaneous configurable CC controller streams per instance. Also features MOD wheel and PitchBend sliders.

6) Rozeta Arpeggio: adds a MIDI arpeggiator to any of your synths. Offers latch mode, shuffle and automatic tempo synchronization. Turn any incoming MIDI stream into an arpeggio on the fly.

7) Rozeta Particles: MIDI particle generator - generates a cloud of MIDI notes that create pseudo-random patterns when bounding off the walls.

8) Rozeta Cells: Polyphonic Step Recorder - record and play back polyphonic phrases and patterns.

9) Rozeta Collider: MIDI Hadron Collider - explore semi-repeating generative patterns and melodies.

10) Rozeta Scaler (NEW): MIDI Scale Quantizer and Transposer - tune incoming MIDI to a different scale, never play out of tune again.

Notes:
- these plugins do not run as a standalone app and require a compatible host to work
- MIDI is not sound. To make sound you'll have to feed the MIDI into a synthesizer or instrument app. Bring your own synths!

• Universal, runs on iPad, iPhone and iPod touch.

Improvise or compose within the scales and rhythms you choose. Use parameters like pulse density, scale morphing, rhythm randomness or pitch fluctuation to find new paths for your musical expression and creativity. Use the tutorials or define your own settings to fit the musical style you want to play and compose in. Play on up to eight instruments at once - all with different individual settings.

Gestrument works equally well for rhythmic music or sweeping soundscapes, for solo melodies or chord blocks, for long lines or short staccatos. It can help you make music in whichever genre you can imagine.

Gestrument works directly with its built in sounds and is therefore perfect for the amateur or beginner who wants to make music in an intuitive way. But it is first and foremost built for professional musicians and composers who can work with the settings to build advanced theoretical frameworks that they can later improvise or compose within.
