midiDREAMs by Arthur Kerns

Arthur Kerns released midiDREAMs, an analog sequencer for AUv3. This is a rare treat for fans of classic analog sequencers. We just don't see a lot of this on iOS. midiDREAMs may even be the first AUv3 analog sequencer. Frankly, I can't keep track of all the apps anymore! ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Christ, it has been 3 weeks and I still need nicotine! Let's be positive and assume that this is in fact the very first analog sequencer for AUv3.

As an added bonus, you also get midiDRUMs, an AUv3 x0x-style drum sequencer!


midiDREAMs is a MIDI AUv3 sequencer plugin designed to work like a classic analog-style modular sequencer with 16 virtual sliders and up to 64 steps per pattern. It requires a music app host that supports MIDI AUv3 plugins such as AUM, Audiobus, Cubasis, ApeMatrix, etc, and runs within those host apps. You can use it to sequence synth apps running on your iPad or external hardware synthesizers connected with MIDI.

Also included is midiDRUMs, a second MIDI AUv3 that is an x0x-grid style drum sequencer. This plugin should be used in host apps such as AUM, AudioBus, etc to sequence drum plugins and external drum machines.

The 3rd day, the 3rd week, the 3rd month, are the toughest when stopping smoking! I feel you, I've stopped in 2004, and I still feel for a smoke sometimes. Be strong, it is worth it! Take care :)

It's great to hear thar you are on the way to healthier life, Tim!

On the app: it's a lot like StepBud, but it's iPad only :( And Cem Olcay's app amazes me with individual length setting for each step. Drum sequencer though is very Elastic Drums – like.

I guess it could be worthwhile to "stack" apps together if they have almost identical functions, to remind them easily together ;) In your mind, or maybe create some "stacks" to be shown here on site? It's like categories, but with more strict filter.

Does this have a way of automating pattern switches?
