White Noise Audio Software has released Genome MIDI Sequencer 2.0 – a major update to its iPad MIDI sequencer.
Genome 2.0 features a number of improvements to all areas. Here’s what they have to say about the update:
Genome 2.0 features a number of improvements to all areas. The new song mode makes it easier to work on longer songs and is more intuitive. We’ve also added a metronome, a zoom to fit button, and made it possible to view velocity values on selected notes.
We’ve also redone the file manager to make it easier to manage your files and open them in other apps.
Finally, we’ve added the Rack Page, which will allow you to make songs within Genome using built in modules. To start with, we’ve included a synthesizer, a drum machine and a host of effects. Additional modules will be added over time.

At the 2015 NAMM Show, Buchla Electronic Musical Instruments introduced the Polyphonic Rhythm Generator – a high-end step sequencer that is one of the most complex and powerful hardware step sequencers ever created.
The new sequencer is:
- polyphonic – it can sequence three lines, completely independently;
- polyrhthmic – it can be used to create complex rhythmic patterns, and includes a powerful Euclidean pattern generator; and
- polymetric – it can create sequences of different lengths, syncing them either by a shared pulse (creating cyclic interlocking patterns), by a shared down beat (creating complex time signatures) or they can run completely independently.
Here’s an in-depth intro video from the NAMM Show, featuring Buchla engineer Charles Seeholzer. Note that the new Buchla sequencer is insanely deep, and this video digs deep into the many options that it offers:
