Quincy IAP giveaway – 5 copies of the Module Collection IAP pack to be won

Download from iTunes App Storequincy logo 2I included Quincy (currently UK£3.99/US$4.99) 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 mentions a few days 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 has been kind enough to supply me with 5 copies of the ‘Module Collection’ IAP for Quincy. Obviously, this does require you already own the base app, but if you don’t, then maybe the prize would be a good excuse to give it a try?

As usual with the giveaways I run on the blog, the deal is simple; get your name in the hat and see if it gets pulled out. You can enter the draw in one of two ways.

  • First, if you just want to enter this draw, then use the Contact Us page to leave your details before 10 pm (GMT) on Friday, June 30th, 2017. Make sure to enter ‘Quincy IAP’ in the message subject line.
  • Alternatively, if you want to get included in this – and every future promo code giveaway run on the site – then sign up for the Music App Blog email list before the deadline. All members of the list will automatically be entered in every draw. You can sign up here and, as a bonus for signing up, you also get a copy of the Music App Blog’s ‘25 iOS music apps to get you started‘ guide. And if you are already signed up for the email newsletter, then consider yourself entered :-)

As soon as I can organise after entries close, I’ll draw a suitable number of names at random from all those entered. I’ll then notify the lucky winners by email and include the necessary promo code. I’ll also post a list of the winners here. If you are one of the lucky ones, do make sure to use the code ASAP – iTunes Redeem Codes generally have a relatively short life span once they have been issued.

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£9.99/US$9.99, it is unlikely to break too many banks….  so get your name in the hat to expand your Quincy options via the Module Collection IAP :-)
