midiDREAMs is a MIDI AUv3 sequencer plugin designed to work like a classic analog-style modular sequencer with 16 virtual sliders and up to 64 steps per pattern. It requires a music app host that supports MIDI AUv3 plugins such as AUM, Audiobus, Cubasis, ApeMatrix, etc, and runs within those host apps. You can use it to sequence synth apps running on your iPad or external hardware synthesizers connected with MIDI.

Also included is midiDRUMs, a second MIDI AUv3 that is an x0x-grid style drum sequencer. This plugin should be used in host apps such as AUM, AudioBus, etc to sequence drum plugins and external drum machines.

Aesop ,

Wonderful, very “tactile”

I’m just getting started with this but it seems like a really well thought out app. I’m particularly looking forward to plugging in the Kong nano and taking it for a spin. I have one question and perhaps I should rtfm a bit more:I see it is possible to change pattern length easily so that one could for instance do a much shorter pattern length on the fly. That sets the ending- could one also set the beginning? I would love it if there were the possibility of setting a pattern loop by holding a beginning and end step- this would mimic similar behavior on sq-1 (probably my fave performance feature on sq-1): imagine that here with all its additional depth!

This is great

You can’t get a sequence going any quicker than with this and it still has the essential controls. Quick and easy and fun. A+

Useful and Fun

The two things I demand in an iOS music app! Another winner from Art Kerns!
