Art Kerns will be well known to regular iOS music apps users through his excellent midiSTEPs, midiLFOs and Funkbox, all of which I’ve reviewed here on the Music App Blog in the past.

midiSTEPs giveaway results – 5 winners of beautifully designed four-part iOS MIDI sequencer

I reviewed midiSTEPs on the blog just after it was released. There is some considerable iOS pedigree behind midiSTEPs as the developer is Art Kerns who will be well known to regular iOS musicians through apps such as midiLFOs and Funkbox, both of which I’ve reviewed here on the Music App Blog in the past. MidiSTEPs, at one level, is a fairly conventional step-based pattern sequencer with patterns featuring up to 64 steps (with control over step-length relative to the musical grid) and you can … [Read more...]

midiSTEPs review – beautifully designed four-part iOS MIDI sequencer from Art Kerns

I reviewed a new iOS MIDI sequencer app last week – Fugue Machine from Alexandernaut – a rather wonderful, and very iOS, take on creative MIDI sequencing.
