midiFILTr-PG launched – interesting iOS MIDI ‘randomiser’ from Art Kerns

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. Art has a couple of other iOS music apps on the App Store in what's becoming a bit of a series - the mididFILTr apps - thet first two of which were aimed at Volca FM and Volca sample users. However, a third app in this series has arrived on the App Store today - midiFILTr-PG - and this might have a somewhat … [Read more...]

Audio Evolution Mobile Studio update – rapid fire tweaks to iOS DAW/sequencer

I posted about another update to Audio Evolution Mobile Studio just a couple of days ago where developer Davy Wentzler had added some minor new features and a bunch of tidy-up style tweaks. As I commented in my original review of the app when it launched for iOS, Audio Evolution Mobile Studio is well worth a look if you have not yet found your 'home' with any of the established iOS DAW/sequencer. As I discussed in the full review, I was impressed with the basic concept, the conventional … [Read more...]

Audio Evolution Mobile Studio update – further tweaks to new iOS DAW/sequencer

If you look at the desktop marketplace, the world is not short of DAW/sequencer options. And, if the likes of, for example, Cubasis, GarageBand, Auria Pro of now Gadget, don't float your particular boat, as I posted a couple of months back, there are further options for you to consider. However, I also reviewed another interesting contender that made it's iOS debut quite recently; Audio Evolution Mobile Studio. As I discussed in the full review, I was impressed with the basic concept, the … [Read more...]

Fugue Machine update – new MIDI features for brilliant iOS sequencer concept from Alexandernaut

I reviewed the rather wonderful Fugue Machine from developer Alexandernaut when it was launched back in October 2015. The app has gained a dedicated following amongst iOS musicians, especially if you like to be occasionally surprised and delighted by the compositional assistance your apps can offer. The app is something familiar – in this case, a fairly simple piano-roll-based MIDI sequencer – but delivered with a considerable twist; multiple playheads. If you have not yet seen the app in … [Read more...]

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...]
