Xequence | MIDI Workstation

Posted by Mikers On October - 18 - 2017

552x414bb (4)Xequence is an advanced linear MIDI Sequencer and Keyboard / Controller for iPhone and iPad.

NOTE: This app does not produce any sound by itself! It is meant to control OTHER apps via Virtual MIDI.

HIGHLIGHTS:

– Efficient User Interface for an amazing editing workflow on a mobile device
– Scale-Aware Keyboards and Pianoroll Editor: All modules and functions observe the current instrument’s scale
– 16 scales included
– Extremely tight, best-in-class MIDI timing
– 100% accurate song looping, no dropouts/jitter at loop points
– Robust controller (CC) handling with backtracing (inside parts)
– Supports any time signature and BPM
– MIDI In and Thru with re-channelization and re-routing to currently selected instrument
– MIDI Sync Master (Clock / Start / Stop / Continue / SPP) – other DAWs or pattern sequencers can run in accurate sync with Xequence, e.g. to use audio tracks, or an external drum machine. Several modes for maximum compatibility
– Works perfectly with e.g. AUM or Gadget as hosts / sound generators, with drum sequencers like Ruismaker, or with Beatmaker 2 for synced audio tracks
