Pixel Music is a music sequencer based on images. Take an image you love and start playing.

◦ 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
◦ Choose between RGB, Luminance, Hue, or Saturation data to control pitch, velocity, or note duration
◦ Choose how the image is traversed, between Left -> Right, Top -> Down, or Circular. Select randomness factor in image traversal
◦ Choose recorded loop length and quantization settings
◦ Internal Synth with delay and reverb effects
◦ Send MIDI to external synths when used as AUv3. Each image you add has a separate MIDI channel exposed in the AU host
◦ Save and Load app states and configurations
◦ Dark mode support

Have fun with it.

Add Original Image record feature

This is app is great! Very smooth and the UI is nice. I would love to be able to hide the pixels and see the actual image and record a video play the image with out the pixel blur.

Very nice app

Nice app. Works fantastic when you are using one sequence. When you use two sequences or more it sticks notes. Would be nice if you can send the output of each sequence to a different channel. Also tempo division for each channel would be cool too.

Developer Response ,

Thanks for the support! Sending MIDI to separate channels from each sequencer is now available in version 1.1 :)
