  • Grabbed...thanks :)

  • Thanks @midiSequencer somehow this has always been a "maybe one-day".

    Today is obviously that day, looking forward to giving it a spin later.

  • Sold! Happy fourth....

  • Got it, was on my think-about list ;-)

    Thank you very much!

    I really like this!!!

    Where's the midiSequencer project file?
    ;-)

  • Very easy to use, shockingly ugly, and sonically effective!

    yes its abit multicoloured & saturated .... intentionally retro. some people hate it, some like it, others (like me) just use it to create great berlin school sequences....

    not sure I have it (it was a year ago) - but its basically 8 notes with echoFX tweaked in realtime (transposed, shortened etc in the spirit of berlin sequencing). Only animoog is being played by midiSequencer here.
    The bird sounds were the main feature here - it's my patch you all have in the m15 library but again tweaked like made, but animoog sounds good playing in the background.

  • Has the app's development been abandoned?

    I am no longer developing this app as it needed to go multi-track - hence Quantum has been in development for over a year - all extending midiSequencer to n dimensions. But midiSequencer is at the heart of it and still useful to drive Quantum (when it is released) for automation via cc & NRPNs as well as learn step sequencing without the contrapuntal overhead.

    I hope that I was able to convey both love and hate, but mostly love.

    believe me Quantum is more fugal than fugue machine - that only has four play heads this has 24! But even midiSequencer with one play head and echoFx is great imo.

    not to dis fugue machine - I did a demo of that too (in a Klaus Schulze style)! Can't have enough sequencers - just fire up your favourite synth and you get all sorts of goodness out of it.....

  • I'm looking forward to having a play with this

    Will midisequencer be necessary for Quantum? Or does my purchase simply help keep you in Ramen during the making of the new app? ;)
    Either way, I'm in.

    Mmm klaus schulze style. Thanks for the IAP gifts, looking forward to the new one.

    no different app, but midiSequencer has up to 16 midi controls (you could use CCs or NRPN with 16 step values) you can automate Quantum, or indeed any other midi app.

    but Quantum is complex - for example it has a timewarp feature that allows you keep overall time if you skip notes (it slows down steps). It has three levels of tempo (song tempo, sequence tempo division then per step tempo division) - midisequencer just has song tempo. It has an extended programmable clip action follow on looping (borrowed from Ableton live) - so you could play one loop, wait a number of loops, fire off another sequence, transpose it, change key or loop direction etc. It also features new loop types - like forward 3 back 2 or the Cirklon's brownian motion (random but forward). etc. But everything in midiSequencer is in Quantum, just multiplied and extended a lot.

    @midiSequencer Question, will this sequencer output this type of midi message as noted below??

    @Ksh said:

    In other words, via another app, what setting would I need to look for in another app to send this type of code to get MidiBand to listen to the start'\stop command?

    You need to generate a MIDI out event in the 0xF0-0xFF range, and then teach MidiBand to listen for it on its MIDI Engine Settings page. In a usual MIDI convention, the second digit represents a channel, e.g. 0x95 event is a 9x-Note On event on channel 5. However this is not true for 0xFX events, the second digit here is an event type rather than a channel. Thus you cannot say that MIDI out event in the 0xF0-0xFF range belongs to any channel; rather it's a generic hardware button press event.

    You mean sysex? It starts $F0 ends $F7
    Yes it can - you can define any one of the 16 possible controllers to be a sysex then define up to 115 bytes of data.
    To transmit it just set the fader value to 1 on any step and it will transmit that controller sysex to the midi output.
    You could of course use any bytes not just the $F0..$F7, so could mimic an NRPN or RPN say, but then midiSequencer has those types already.

    I think it all works - don't use it myself - CCs are good for most controls, NRPN for synth internals. etc

  • Cool. Can we assume that this app will survive the 32 bit death?

    I suppose this app has no Link or midi file out? Is recording the midi live to some other daw the way to integrate mS in a workflow? Do people find the sync to be reliable?

  • Sold. Thanks!
    I've been wanting to trigger Midiband's start stop transport but the developer said it only worked with apps that send out that type of midi messages or even hardware synths like the Yamaha Motif sends it when pressing the transport buttons so I'm so glad and grateful!
