As I posted a few days ago, AppBC delivered a further update to Modstep – their fully-blown MIDI sequencer with both step sequencing and piano roll editing environments – bringing a number of maintenance-style fixes to what really is a very sophistcated sequencing platform. If your music making revolves around MIDI, rather than audio recording, then Modstep is a powerful option for sequencing on your iPad.
I did a full review of Modstep just after it was launched and the feature set is impressive. You can use unlimited MIDI tracks and there is support for multiple MIDI continuous controllers on each MIDI track so you can modulate your sound sources to keep your sounds changing, etc. The first significant update added Audio Units (AU) support which was great to see.
Anyway, Benjamin Weiss from AppBC was kind enough to provide me with five copies of the app to give away to readers here at the blog. The draw closed yesterday and the winning names were pulled out of the hat this afternoon….. and the winners are:-
Jelle de Gooijer
All the winners have now been sent an email with the details of how to get hold of their prizes. Incidentally, if you do appear as a winner in one of these giveaways and you don’t seem to have seen an email from me with the promo code details, then do make sure you check in your junk, trash or spam folders just in case your email system has ‘filed’ the message there :-)
Oh, and if you want to make sure you are entered for all the promo code giveaways that I run through the Music App Blog, then get yourself on the email newsletter list – and pick up your copy of our free ’25 apps’ guide :-)
Modstep is a very powerful MIDI music creation environment with impressive functionality. It is perhaps not for the faint-hearted as that power comes with a depth that does involve an initial learning curve but, as a stand-alone MIDI sequencer, it’s clip-based approach is both very flexible and very creative. The app requires a minimum spec of iOS7, is iPad-only, a 103 MB download and is currently priced at UK£19.99/US$19.99.
And if that sound like it might be of interest, then check out the original full Modstep review, note that AU support has been included since the first launch, watch the videos below, and then hit the download button to find out more from the App Store….
