The Tenori On is a visual sequencer. On the 16 × 16 grid of buttons, the horizontal direction is time, and the vertical direction is pitch
By laying sounds on these buttons, you can combine rhythms and melodies to produce music. A button will glow when its sound is produced. The movements of the glowing lights also produce a visual performance.
Here’s what’s new in TNR-I v1.5:
- Compatible with Inter-App Audio features (iOS 7 and above, not including iPhone4)
- Instrument App can be assigned to each layer during performance.
- Compatible with Audiobus
- Sound Cloud browser window added – TNR-i songs upload to Sound Cloud can be played.
- Guide screen added – Pressing and holding the L button or the R button will bring up the user guide. This feature can be turned off by selecting System Menu –> Guide and “”None.””
- Bug fixes
Note: Early reviews indicate that MIDI support is missing in action in this version. “The Good: We now have Audiobus support. The (VERY) bad: MIDI implementation is still gone. Version 1.4.4 was the last one to support MIDI, and I have beat my head against the wall with Yamaha customer service, and i simply can’t get through to the right people who can help. ”
