Genome MIDI Sequencer For iPad Now Available

White Noise Audio has released Genome MIDI Sequencer (GMS) – a pattern based MIDI sequencer for the iPad.

According to the developer, “It’s simply the best app on the iPad for controlling all your MIDI gear. You can sequence single patterns or an entire 16 track song.”


  • CoreMIDI, Line6 Mobilizer Mk I & II compatible
  • Supports Network MIDI
  • Sends and Receives MIDI Clock Sync, Start and Stop events
  • Also sends Note On, Note Off, Pitch Bend, Aftertouch, Channel Pressure and CC’s
  • Pattern Based, pattern changes occur on bar boundaries so song stays in sync
  • On screen keyboard interface
  • Up to 16 simultaneous tracks, unlimited number of patterns
  • Song / live modes
  • Record incoming CC’s and Notes
  • Undo / redo for most actions

GMS is compatible with the Line6 MIDI Mobilizer and any interfaces that support CoreMIDI using the Camera Connection Kit or Network MIDI. Network MIDI allows you to send events to your Mac Desktop or to other iOS devices and apps.

NOTE: GMS does does not produce any sounds by itself. Some MIDI gear or software synths are required to use this app.

  1. Can you run this at the same time as one of the software syth applications

    I would like to have a setup that is just the ipad and a cotroller keyboard and be able to take the ipad with me wherever and wok on songs edit etc.

  2. Does it have individual track leghts? Microshifting? Whats the resolution? It looks tempting but if it does not have this features its pretty much another useless ipad app I already have…

  3. Good questions.

    It mentions syncing at the bars – but not whether you can have 'free running' sequences of arbitrary length cycling against each other.

    I'd like to see more details on the specs of this and also a deeper demo before committing to it.

  4. @Synthhead – yes, that's exactly how it works. Patterns can be up to 8 bars in length and you can have them all running at the same time cycling against each other.

    @Vibralux: I'm not familiar with the term microshifting.. Can you elaborate?

  5. @suckers – yes, it can. Expect a small amount of latency with network midi stuff.

    @Chris – yes, as long as the synth supports Network MIDI. Note: Just supporting midi is not the same. Network midi requries additional work on the part of the programmer. Not sure if Sunrizer supports this.
