Textquencer is a text-based MIDI sequencer. Each letter's alphabetical index is mapped to the note in the scale you are working. 

For example in C-major scale,
Letter A (index = 1) is Note C (first note in the scale)
Letter B (index = 2) is Note D (second note in the scale)
Letter C (index = 3) is Note E (third note in the scale)
Letter H (index = 8) is Note C but an octave higher
and so on.

You can create custom character mapping for emojis, punctuation, symbols or any letters in any language. A custom character can mapped to
- A specific MIDI note or,
- A specific note in the scale like the first note in the scale, the third note in the scale etc.

Unless a character is custom mapped, a letter in English alphabet or a number, it will be a rest in the sequencer.
Also, you can randomise the velocity and gate lengths in each step if you want,
You can enable it on the settings menu and set a randomization min-max range.

Textquencer is a MIDI app and does not create any sound on its own. You need to route Textquencer's MIDI output to your audio app's MIDI input. The standalone app supports Ableton Link. For using the AUv3 plugin, you need an AUv3 host app such as AUM, Cubase, Nanostudio etc.

Gio Bellini ,


Cem, I think I might have encountered some kind of bug. I have an iPad Air 2020 with 256GB. Using several instances of the app in AUM, at some point each one crashed and I lost the text that I had input into each instance. Text reverted to the default. (Edit: the DSP was between 30-50% in AUM.) Otherwise, this is a really fun way to play with randomization and generate ideas.
