  1. Hi, can this app be used for live playing. I mean that can you play and loop different patterns smoothly to make an arrangement live. Genome is quite good for that but I find it little unstable and buggy…

    1. it’s kind of maddening, there are quite a few sequencers but none have really nailed it- each have a handful of great features and some annoying downfalls. The best one I’ve used (and I’ve tried plenty) is in nanostudio but of course it doesn’t have midi out and shows no signs of adding it. sigh!
