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!
