We love old fashioned hardware stepsequencers such as the genoQs Octopus, but Little MIDI Machine offers you the best of both worlds - it allows you to create MIDI sequences from you iPad.
Program two independent sequencers that send note and velocity MIDI data out on two MIDI channels to control your hardware synthesizers. LittleMM includes many hardware sequencer features such as mute and un-mute notes, skip steps, reverse the sequencer, adjustable clock speed and more.
For sending the MIDI data to your gear, this app requires you to have a CoreMIDI setup or own the hardware Line 6 Mobilizer MIDI interface. To try out the app, LittleMM can generate very basic melodic sounds (in place of sending MIDI) but it is not a feature that will be developed further and is not the primary purpose of the app. LittleMM is intended to be a MIDI sequencer driving external hardware.
With Little Music Machine you can use your Line 6 MIDI Mobilizer interface or CoreMIDI network/USB setup to control your favorite hardware synth or apps running on other iOS devices and create mind-bending loops and sequences.
It is an universal app that works with iPhone and iPod touch, as well as iPad. And it is FREE!
