Autony by Abigail Macfarlane

Abigail Macfarlane released Autony, an AUv3 MIDI sequencer inspired by Brian Eno's philosophy of having unreliability introduced into his equipment. To that end, Autony has a Reliability knob that can affect its playback. This, and all of the other controls, can be modulated via MIDI automation.

Autony iTunes Description:

AUv3 Midi sequence generator which generates musical evolving sequences that you can further automate or modulate via midi.

A clever algorithm creates a musical sequence which is output as a midi signal which can be used to drive a software synthesiser or a hardware device. Various settings allow the sequence to be constrained to scales and chords, transposed on the fly and also allowed to gently mutate giving an evolving sequence.

All the controls can be modulated or automated via midi.

Needs a AU host like AUM and generates no sound on its own.

"My solution has been to make the equipment unreliable in various ways." - Brian Eno

There is a short official promo, but The Sound Test Room has already posted a helpful demo!

Immediately thought of Rozeta. Nice to notice that Abigail was also thinking of Bram’s awesome AU MIDI plugin suite.
It’s funny how the iOS musicking scene is expanding, these days. It may not sound like a revolution on a day-to-day basis but it does quickly add up to a major change in the ways people can play with music on Apple’s mobile devices.
Just sad that Apple doesn’t make it easier for devs to come out with AUv3 plugins.

I think you're tripping. It is there for me on the US iTunes.
