13 July 2018

Graphic music generator based on Conway's Game of Life.

Overview

Quincy is a musical explorer of Life, a cellular automaton created by J.H.Conway. Conway’s Game Of Life has long been of great interest to musicians specifically as a pattern generator. Quincy is a full implementation of Life, capable of generating all possible variations, the common B3/S23 as well as others like HighLife or Seeds. It is document-based and features adjustable grid size, random cell insertion and more. Quincy comes with a large library of patterns, a color mixer for a document’s color set and many display options. Editing tools beyond pen and pattern stamp also include options like copy, paste and rotate.

  • Intuitive interface

I bought Quincy for iOS a long time ago, but I still don't have a current device on which to run it (I'm on a 1st gen iPad). The dev has updated it six times so far on iOS, which to me shows commitment to maintaining the app. Also, it looks like it might be more accessible than a certain other cross-platform generative music app. I'll be interested to see what people say about this.

Also, it would be nice if the dev would release a demo version of Quincy with saving and virtual MIDI disabled just so that people could test the app's core functionality. The demo video is good, but when apps are priced more in the typical Mac app price range (as opposed to the $1-10 that most iOS are priced), it's hard to spend money when we don't have a better idea of what we're getting.

Thanks so much for your kind comments and interest in Quincy. To learn more about the Mac OS version of Quincy you may want to review the online documentation ( http://www.rogame.com/d/macos/quincy.html ). It is very detailed and even includes several tutorial style chapters.

We are planning to release a more traditional demo outside the app store later this year. If you’d rather not wait in order to be able to take advantage of the introductory discount (30% off until 6.1.2015), you are very welcome send in a feature request should you find anything amiss. We are really good at honoring those wherever possible :-)
