MIDI Step Sequencer For iPad

Updated On

nord beatThere are so many cool music making and recording apps for the iPad that it's hard to keep up with them all. Here is a recent one that is a 4-track MIDI sequencer called the Nord Beat CoreMIDI Step Sequencer. If you don't know what sequencer does - well, it's sort of like the drum machines of old (though the sounds a sequencer uses don't have to be drums). There is a tempo and time signature you can assign to a box (in this case, an iPad app). Then there are buttons that correspond to up to 16 beats in one "sequence." You can assign a sound - usually a drum hit - to each button to create a pattern over the sequence. Then you can build songs by stitching together a bunch of sequences.

Anyway, here is some info on the Nord Beat: http://en.audiofanzine.com/virtual-instrument-iphone-ipod-touch-ipad/clavia/nord-beat/news/a.play,n.14074.html
