Alexandernaut has released an update to Fugue Machine for iOS that promises to deliver faster, tighter MIDI and more.
Here’s what’s new in Fugue Machine 1.2.0:
- Per-Playhead MIDI Routing – You can now independently route each playhead to any MIDI Channel, allowing the playheads to control separate apps or MIDI devices. Go to Settings > Midi Output Settings > Output Channels for more info.
- Faster, tighter MIDI – Thanks to a complete rewrite of the sequencer code, Fugue Machine is now about 4 times faster and MIDI timing is now as tight as computationally possible.
- You can now (optionally) send MIDI Program Changes to the MIDI Destination when you change patterns. When enabled, there will be a “PC” button next to each pattern in the PATTERNS Menu. When you press this button, the pattern will change and a Program Change Message will be sent to the MIDI Destination. Go to Settings > MIDI Output Settings > Send Program Changes.
- Ableton Link Offset Setting – When Ableton Link is enabled, you now have millisecond control over phase offset — allowing you to compensate for potential audio and midi latency introduced by your setup. Go to Settings > Ableton Link Settings > Offset for more info.
- If you loaded a pattern while editing a note on the piano roll (yes, a corner case’s corner case), you’d find yourself controlling the loaded patterns selected notes. This was weird, and doesn’t happen anymore.
- Fugue Machine would hang when being launched from an Inter-App Audio host, requiring you to open it before adding it to your IAA session. Fixed now :]
Here’s the official preview for Fugue Machine 1.2.0:
Fugue Machine is available for US $9.99 in the App Store.
