Tried all the rest, this is the best!

I have found this app particularly helpful when I land in a “progression rut” or just need a nudge in a different direction. Super clean UI holding a rather flexible set of configurable parameters, making it by far the most customizable AND easy to use generative app I’ve come across. Could use a bit more of a instrument selection although I have grown fond of the pads.
I probably haven’t done more than star and app in 2 years, but I feel compelled to shout out the dev for an awesome, well thought out and awesome tool. Thanx guise!

Hi Kitty,

Thank you for your feedback!

Just wanted to update you that we have a new version out with new sounds, MIDI out (so you can use your own instruments) and other useful features.

Midi out rules

Really nice UI that works well on my iPhone and the new MIDI out means this is about to get a lot more use from me. Only thing I can think to improve is being able to change the order of the four note sequence windows. Thanks to the dev for continuing to add features to this very affordable generative tool.

Cool app

Some features I’d like to see. The ability for the app to keep playing when you change notes and chords. I’d like to see what the note names are on the editor. Perhaps the ability to program a sustained note. The ability to change octave in editor.
