    • $6.99



SAND is a grid based sequencer and host for audio plugins. An intuitive yet powerful way to produce music, without getting in the way of creativity.

Host your favorite plugins (instruments and audio effects), control their parameters and presets, record and playback midi clips with the on-screen keyboard or external MIDI keyboard.

Connect and map your MIDI surface to completely control the app, mapping is flexible and customisable. By using buttons mapped as "shift" keys, you can expand the ability for a MIDI device to control the app.

Record your performance and export it as audio file, with separate stems.

Was waiting for something like this

I love this, I am not to smart when it comes to midi use but was able to get things going with ease and my creative flow became nourished. I like this app a lot and look forward to watching it grow. Very fun to use as well.

A solid experimental Clip launch

Phenomenal. Can’t wait to see how this develops from here. Does exactly what I need it to with promise of much more in the future. If you’ve struggled with midi recorder or drambo or don’t like Note’s lack of interfacing with AUV3, work this into the setup. You’ll be presently surprised.
Great work Matteo!

This is nice!

I like clip-based but not overly complicated sequencers. I like the roadmap / feature request site. The devs accessibility and response are among the best of any iOS music dev. As far as I’m concerned, this one’s a winner!

Keep an eye on the Version History - there’s more to come!
