The developers at Bleep Blox are excited about a new hardware MIDI sequencer they are developing for the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch.
Here’s what they have to say about it:
I am working on a new app. Some of you may know that Line6 recently changed their licensing agreement around making apps for the Midi Mobilizer, which makes it much more attractive for developers. I decided to throw my hat in the ring, and have begun work on a MIDI sequencer focused on live MIDI jams with your favorite music gear. My goal with this (not yet named) app is to give you one of the most intuitive and fun sequencing environments you?ve ever used, while opening up the possibility of making music with your gear in more casual settings, other than sitting in front of a computer. We are rethinking the way things like piano rolls work by redesigning them for the touch screen and making them as easy to use as a paint program.
Features are still being decided, but you will be able to create multiple loops of MIDI and send them to any MIDI channel. You?ll also be able to automate CC?s to control your synthesizer?s knobs. Stay tuned for more info!
This is vaporware, at this point, but Bleep Box’s concept for a multitouch step sequencer sounds very interesting.
