riffer vs steppolyarp

Due to spending a lot on all these sales, I still want one of these two, I want both, but should only get one cuz I've beem on a spending spree lol..

I want to create some down tempo pad, bass and lead patterns but it's hard to decide which way to go here, they both look awesome, would like some random generation as well as programmable stuff....

Help me choose ! 😂

  • SPA for the win, if you’re trying to make multiple pattern chains for songs easily. But they are pretty different.

    They're both good at different things.

    The strength of StepPolyArp for me is that it can be triggered via a keyboard - so you can have a bunch of synths, all triggered by SPA sequences or arp's, and change key just by pressing a note on the keyboard. Latch the keyboard to all your SPA instances and all your synths stay in key.

    Riffer, as the name suggests, is very good at creating usable little sequences, or riffs. The random factor seems to generate better results than the randomiser in SPA, and the interface is a bit more fun for jamming.

    I use one or the other, dependig on the project requirements.

    Good word.... How long can your sequences be in riffer ?

  • Is Riffer in sale too?

    64 steps I think. One thing against it is the controls are far too small, impossible to see on the iPhone version when I just checked. Results are really good though.

  • I'm not sure but it's like 6.99 right now I think > @david_2017 said:

    Man I just can't decide lol...
    But I'll use it a lot more on iPad than iPhone

  • I don't think SPA is going on black Friday sale tho 😬😡

    I have both, but I honestly think that SPA is the more useful app just in generating finished progressions with 16 per preset that can be easily chained/sequenced. Meaning that you could actually make songs without much difficulty. Riffer is the more capable app for jamming and generative stuff.

    But, it’s only Thursday where I am.

    My 2¢, SPA is better if you kinda know what you are going for and want to set it up.
    Riffer is better if you want good auto sequencing that can evolve on its own, or not.

    I disagree with their assessments, I don’t think one is better than the other - as they both excel in different ways.

    SPA has more features, but I find Riffer produces more musical results. Really depends on what you’re looking for.

    Isn’t that what I just said?
    Maybe I should have said ‘better suited for’?

  • Me, having been away for just about a year, and now coming back into it all, have been well confused with the difference between SPA (which I had to the old one, one of my most used apps, so figured I kind of know it) and the new kids on the block like Riffer and Autony. Also, I'm not sure on what they can do melody wise that SPA (as I remember it) can't do. Or Quantum for that matter. Apart from being AU of course.

    Have the same conundrum regarding QuantiChord vs Scalebud vs Rozeta Scaler vs Midiflow-thingy (which I've noticed ONLY runs under AB, and not as I thought, under all AU midi enabled hosts). Having good fun exploring though. :)

  • @MonzoPro @CracklePot @hellquist
    I deff see that one isn't better than the other as far as apps, but I am looking for one to lay out full songs with and get a little complicated, but I'm not sure that either one is going to excel in that other than SPA may give more ability to change longer patterns on the fly... Looks like we just need em both and all 😂😂😂

    That's what I'm wondering, if one can do something that much better than the other, I feel over whelmed with apps so I'd like to just get one and use it a while you know
