Developer Andrei Antonescu shared this video demo of Pixel Music, a music sequencer for iOS & Mac that lets you create sequences based on images.
Here’s how it works. You start with an image:
- Pixels turn into pitch, velocity, and note durations
- Play multiple images at the same time, in sync
- Choose what parts of the image will be played and at what timing
- Tap on the image and record yourself playing alongside the sequencer
- AUv3 with preset and MIDI support
- Ableton Link compatible
- Control sequencer timing and configuration
- Internal Synth with delay and reverb effects
- Send MIDI to external synths when used as AUv3
- Save and Load app states and configurations
- Dark mode support
Pricing and Availability:
Pixel Music is available now for $5.99 USD.

ooo! more nonsense! i can make music by waving my fingers!
what people won’t do to avoid practicing these days. tsk tsk.
Yes. I practice hitting the buttons on my sequencer for 8 hours a day. It was tough at first, because I kept missing the buttons, but I think I finally have it down.
i can only hope that this brings http://www.ratemypoo.com back from the bowels of the internet.
Heaven forbid if anyone actually imagined music and then endeavoured to express it.
A music tool for infinite monkeys.
File along with preset randomiser, MIDI files, phrase generators etc, and to be perfectly frank: genres. Genres are the painfully obvious bits you copy from someone else’s creation because you care more about being popular than actually pouring your existence into art. YMMV.
i propose two internets; one for humans, and the other for the all the AI, algorithmic crutches, and mechanistic nonsense that’s burbling to the surface lately.
My cat could cough up a hairball on a keyboard and sound more musical than this.
This is pretty neat actually, would be interesting to actually hear the sequences this app evokes from images, could be a fun experiment and certainly a fun story for any song that brings from the sequence. A nice, simple, niche sequencer.
