dot E ++

I noticed this the other day and thought it looked vaguely interesting. Here’s the app description:

dot E++ : Tropf Musik.electronica +OSC +OGG
OSC (Open Sound Control) supported, eight directions available sequencer on the 16 x 16 matrix .

We have challenged that the simple operation to compose music and various expression of the music are consistent. This is new type matrix sequencer with quick phrase transition.

As you know, a matrix style sequencer is very easy to compose music. However I feel it is monotonous gradually by listening for a short while.
I thought it needs the change of sequence pattern. Then we implemented this feature on 16 x 16 matrix. (16 points stereo sound)
You can make the eight various melodies per a matrix pattern moreover change the matrix pattern, sound, scale and tempo in real-time. Pressing direction buttons change melody into rhythm or rhythm to melody.
You will certainly meet unexpected new phrase!

# If you are composer when you don’t have good ideas try it!

[Deference between iPhone version]
– add OSC. The dot E++ plays external sound via network (address example: /matrix)
– add Ogg Vorbis streaming server. Broadcast internal play sound.(22kHz mono)
– add direction button instead of tilt sensor to change sequence direction
– add matrix dots shift function and mute button.

GuitarJack update

There’s been lots of debate about GuitarJack since it was first announced, but Sonoma have also just announced the GuitarJack 2 upgrade offer which is pretty good I think.

The GuitarJack 2 will work with the iPhone 4, iPod Touch 3rd and 4th gen, and the iPad

Take a look here.
