A beautiful and playful multi-voice synthesizer.

Seaquence lets you create, modify, and share musical compositions of swimming "planktone" creatures in a stereo-spatialized mixing dish. Each creature has a voice and a sequencer, and only the closest are heard as they swim around your view. With Seaquence's fully capable audio engine, you can create layered and dynamic compositions with a wide range of sounds ranging from ambient drones to intricately layered rhythms and transients. With its playful and colorful interface, even composers who are brand new to synthesis will be able to unlock their synesthetic creativity. You can save your sessions, post and share them, and explore the Seaquence Galaxy to listen what others have shared to get inspired.

Stands the test of time

Great for sequencing hardware synths. Is the developer still out there? This app still has years of life in it.

Needs some things.

Needs some things.
It needs to be able to make the voices play music after a certain amount of time that you can set up. Or play a certain amount of times when it reaches a certain time of day. Maybe even a thing where it can be random like if I set it up to play 3 times every 30-60 seconds. That would be cool. Also there needs to be an option where the voices wander around or at least set up a path for them. I would like to make them go where I want them to. I have paid 10 dollars for premium and I still wasn’t able to do any of those things.

Unnecessary premium for an app

I know that hard work and effort was put into this game, but I think forcing someone to pay $6.99 just so they can do simple actions such as make their melodies longer or increase and decrease the pitch is quite outrageous. This makes completely no sense for a music application of all things, especially considering the fact that I can do the exact same stuff that you put behind this dumb paywall on other programs for free. In fact, there are many games that have much more content than this, and you don’t have to spend a dime. Pretty high price for an experimental game you might get bored of after awhile.

Developer Response ,

Hey! Just a heads up. Seaquence Complete is on sale through the end of March if you want to get the upgrade for more than half off!
