1.0.1
26 January 2012

Multitrack, pattern-oriented MIDI step sequencer.

Overview

MidiPatterns is a multitrack, pattern-oriented, MIDI step sequencer with a simple but effective user interface, so that it can be used as a simple drum machine, but also to handle complex multi-timbral, polyphonic scores, controlling multiple software synthesizers and hardware expanders at once.

The app supports virtually up to 32000 tracks per document and can drive multiple MIDI devices, directly connected or linked through a network. The size of each pattern can vary between 1 and 216 steps. Each document can define up to 32000 distinct patterns.

There are powerful per track modulation capabilities, including volume, reverb, chorus, attack, decay, release, pan, cutoff and resonance. Besides, MidiPatterns implements sophisticated "swing" and randomizing capabilities to improve expressiveness. Events properties like MIDI velocity, duration, probability and swing and all modulations can be set to change subtly and randomly during playback.

A song editor permits to assemble patterns in a structured playback, MIDI files can be imported and exported and there is support for MIDI clock synchronization, both as master and as slave.

Finally, it has powerful and detailed mute & solo capabilities and makes use of drag & drop to ease editing operations.

In the first place a DAW needs to be user friendly. MidiPatterns does not fit the bunch. It is ugly and a mess. The demo crashed several times during playing. Bad bad bad Ableton Live is still the best. Period.

1. MidiPatterns doesn't claim (nor it wants) to be a DAW, it's a MIDI sequencer. 2. You may find it ugly, that's a matter of taste, but it's not a "mess": its UI has been thought out VERY carefully. 3. If you provide me with enough information on how to reproduce a crash, I'll be more than happy to solve the trouble; although so far neither the Mac App Store reviewers nor the MidiPatterns customers did experience any. 4. Comparing a $450 product with a $12 one seems a little… improper.
