Quincy IAP giveaway results – 5 winners of the Module Collection IAP pack

Download from iTunes App Storequincy logo 2I included Quincy from RoGame Software in my iOS generative music apps roundup a while ago. Quincy is a sort of abstract ambient music generator and the app uses an underlying algorithm that is based upon the Game of Life pattern generation process. You ‘seed’ the musical idea with a graphical pattern of cells and a set of rules are then applied that dictate which cells remain alive, which die and which new cells are ‘born’.

Quincy’s main screen is quietly hypnotic :-)

And, as the pattern changes on the screen so the music created also changes. You can change the rules that are applied and also draw new sets of cells on the screen as the composition unfolds. Sonically, it’s fascinating but, equally, it is quite hypnotic to watch as the patterns change with time.

As I mentioned a week or so ago, Quincy has now been updated to add support for Ableton Link which is kind of cool and enables the app to be more easily integrated into a broader app-based workflow. On the back of the update, Arthur from RoGame was been kind enough to supply me with 5 copies of the ‘Module Collection’ IAP for Quincy. The draw closed over the week-end and the winning names were pulled out of the hat this morning….. and the winners are:-

Patrick Heischrek

Kelly Brown

David (astrodoops)

Graham Vahs

Simon (GoDat)


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 :-)

Yay! Quincy now includes support for Ableton Link.

Quincy is an interesting bit of software and, as it pretty much does all the heavy lifting for you in terms of music creation, I suspect it would probably suit non-musicians (or, more accurately, those with non-traditional instrument skills) looking to get into music making rather than those with a lot of musical theory/expertise. However, as a source of new, abstract or ambient or hypnotic melodic ideas, Quincy is a lot of fun and great to watch. And, at UK£7.99/US$7.99, it is unlikely to break too many banks….
