Thesys from Sugar Bytes arrives

Sugar Bytes bring another pretty awesome looking app to your iPad. Thesys sequencer arrives. Here’s the detail of the app:

Thesys is an extremely powerful and intuitive MIDI step sequencer app, giving you control over just about all aspects of your favorite MIDI devices. Use Thesys to create varied and organic bass lines, screaming leads, pulsating chords, and organic pad sounds in the studio or on stage. For live musicians, Thesys provides an extremely versatile palette of performance options which can be triggered right from your MIDI keyboard: you can transpose, manipulate, twist up, mutate, and mangle your patterns without even getting near your iPad. No other MIDI sequencer plugin offers you the ease and power of Thesys. It is 100% MIDI compliant and therefore provides the ultimate MIDI sequencing solution.

  • Full Midi Support (Virtual, Network, Extern)
  • Midi Clock Sync (Master & Slave)

We have Audiobus, we have MIDIbus (-ish), so how about …


What about an app that could hold, move / transfer and share patches from any synth app? A bit like AudioShare but for patches? That would be so useful! It would be amazing! Here’s a rough outline of what I’d like it to do:

  • Save patches from any synth app
  • Back up patches / banks to dropbox or another cloud service
  • Share / publish patches to social media sites

And if I’m really honest I’d like to see:

  • The ability to move a patch from one synth app to another

So, is it even vaguely possible? Would you use it?

Anyone up for even thinking about it?

It isn’t on the app store any more, which is a shame, but maybe one day it will be back.
