Developer Anthony Saunders has updated midiSequencer for iPad to version 1.7.
The new version sees a major overhaul to include up to 16 midi controllers per step (Sysex, NRPN/RPN, named CC’s etc)
Here’s what’s new in midiSequencer 1.7:
- new colour scheme – cool blue.
- monitor function – enables you to hear steps by touching. Can also play sliders (even whilst not playing) to make MS a controller interface.
- complete rework of midi controllers – now have 16 midi controllers :
- Each can be defined as Continuous(0..127), NRPN, RPN, Program Change, Aftertouch, Pitchbend or Sysex (or custom) data
- Can record these into midiSequencer too.
- Optional one byte entry for NRPN & RPN
- CC’s can be named to match hardware (will update list on future updates – Novation Ultranova & Waldorf Q & Blofeld)
- Key(polyphonic) or Channel(monophonic) aftertouch on step notes
- Pitchbend (14 bit)
- Hex pad entry for Sysex data (up to 76 bytes) with autolayout
- Sysex data not restricted to sysex – can be any midi data you wish! Chain sysex using multiple CC’s.
- Define 16 controllers in one panel – will reload on next runup or save/loaded with your snapshot.
- limit controls – will narrow down lower/upper ranges for easy input & clip existing. Note: will reset on load to avoid clipping.
- new ornament – 2 note tremolo (octave arpeggio)
- new step logic : repeat notes x2 to x8 and stop
- latched notes – use for drones (no midi note off sent until unlatched)
- performance panel – One touch load with non-empty slot selected now loads immediately. Save Bank for quick save action
- increased bank size up to 40 snapshots (20-40 accessible from performance panel)
- big improvement on file/bank save/loading times and file size
- file/Bank description increased from 50 to 120 characters
- files Panel – can now sort by Name or Date (see small buttons at top of list)
- tempo clock fraction multipliers now 1/2, 1/3 & 1/4
- chords – can save current chord+notes as a preset and use to restore on other steps
- auto close non-moveable panels by touching outside panel
- misc bug fixes
