Sweetwater's Mitch Gallagher explores DM1 Drum Machine in detail.
Mitch also has some handy tips for those of you that buy every app out there, but can never find the app you want!
Sequence is a new circular audio sequencer using the euclidean algorithm. Perfect for making polyrhythms, Sequence works well to create all kinds of electronica and techno.
- Eight patterns to play with
- 30 samples from classic drum machines
- MIDI output
- Save and load sequences
- BPM control
Experimental musicians have been playing with Euclidean algorithm rhythms for a while now, as a means of generating lively beats, but to my knowledge this is the first iOS app to make use of it. I was playing with it this morning and liked it a lot. The interface is very minimal, but a lot of functionality is in there. It would be nice to be able to import your own samples (at all, though especially via AudioPaste), but the inclusion of MIDI in the first version is very welcomed! You can set different MIDI notes and MIDI channels for each of the 8 patterns.
For more examples of how Euclidean rhythm generators work, check out this video. Below is a demo from the developer.
Chauliodus is a synthesizer that specializes in the bass. You can play the bass line from built-in sequencer, external MIDI devices, external sequencers, and other iOS applications.
It is possible to change the parameters of the filter by using gyroscope; you can get interesting effects by shaking the iPhone or iPad.
You can also enjoy dubstep wobble bass since LFO rate is synchronized to the tempo, and settable by each step!

**Note there is an issue turning MIDI off resulting in a crash, I am working hard on resolving this issue, and will ask for an expedited review.
Fortunately MIDI is not enabled by default, so to avoid the crash mentioned there either leave it on or leave it off!
