  1. I just glanced it through very briefly.

    Many features, such comfortable. Very nice, million thanks.

    But, I am sorry, I am asking this everywhere:
    Is there no transposing? I am dying for an iPad sequencer, that could transpose in realtime.

  2. Yep, all codes are gone… I can confirm that. Looks interesting though. I hope the people that did get the codes put some kind of a comment on the forum so we know how well it either works, or doesn’t.

  3. Look at all these whiners… Of course these would go quick. Why do you feel so entitlled about freee stuff you had no idea even existed yesterday!

  4. Looks like a nice editing interface, and supports scales which is a handy feature. I can’t really see any other differentiating features from Cubasis’ midi editor but I might take it for a test ride one of these days, it does look really streamlined.

  5. Interesting psychological experiment…offer a limited number of coupons to get a program for free that most people would be happy to drop ten bucks on and see if those who don’t get a coupon are turned off of spending the money on it at all. Perhaps a time-restricted discount would get better results for the company. I am not interested in it and came in way after the offer ended but the comments are interesting. I’m sure there’s marketing research comparing methods somewhere.

    1. Giving away free copies works by “generating buzz”. The free users feel friendly and positive towards the creator, and that gets reflected in reviews, positive statements via word of mouth and on forums, etc. Even if your product has some early shortcomings, they are generally overlooked because people got it free. It helps build up some early positive momentum. And also, iTunes reviews are crucial, so a few free copies usually buys you some.

  6. Easily the most interesting MIDI sequencer on iOS, but I’m having problems with MIDIS throughput when using the QuNexus to try and communicate with outside apps. If this were fixed, I suspect I’d be using this endlessly.

  7. *Really* nice interface and worth the $10 (I believe in allowing developers to eat), though MIDI Start/Stop seems to be a bit hit or miss. Agree with Kabletx – one of the best from what I can see. If you use Ableton, you’ll see some familiarity there.

  8. This must be very “hot off the presses” software. The developer’s website doesn’t show it yet.

    It always seems like a weird roll-out mistake to offer up new software but not provide the appearance of a support site that features the new software. But that’s nit-picky, I guess.

    I’m intrigued by this software. SMF/MID import/export is welcome. Pleasant editing is also a good thing.

    I’ll wait until until I’ve seen some reviews or studied the manual. I’d like to know if supports a range of meters and meter changes within a sequence. Would also like to know if it supports dotted & tuplet quantizations besides triplets (x in the space of y). Also would like to see that it is relatively stable, easy to use, and flexible.

    I like Stroke Machine for all the rhythm stuff, but it is crash prone and doesn’t support a true song-mode yet. Perhaps Pro MIDI is another option.

  9. I’m a potential customer for this but they’ll need to do much more before I’d consider buying it. I want to see videos of it in action, someone using it in real time, connecting to various gear and apps, etc. been burned too many times by ‘kind of working’ midi apps

  10. Well I looked at this ….

    No user manual anywhere….. I tried emailing them but no reply.

    I would advise against anyone buying this until there is a user manual.

  11. Has buckets of potential!

    Could be really, really good, but couple of issues making it not much use for me yet. Would give it a 5/5 if these are fixed.

    Couple of annoying things: I’m using Ableton as the Master and Pro Midi as the slave. Whenever I stop and start Ableton, the playhead in Pro Midi starts playing from exactly where it stopped, it doesn’t go back to the beginning of the pattern, like Ableton does. This means everything get out of sync (this works fine in other iOS step sequencers so I know Ableton is set up right). I’m using Pro Midi with Ableton because I want to use a touch screen to enter midi, before you ask 😉

    Scale mode looks great, but I can’t see how to transpose it to a different key – it looks like it’s stuck in C?
