A new sequencer arrives which looks like it could be really quite impressive, and it’s free too.
From a few simple elements complexity can arise. Fifth Degree is a MIDI sequencer based on a simple concept: loop around the musical circle of fifths in key and tweak the performance parameters live. You can use it to create a mesmerising loop and change the way it plays or use it as a base while you improvise alongside it with another instrument. You can even use it as a convenient loop of notes while you try out different sound patches on your synthesizer.
- Lean user interface that gathers the essential performance controls on the main screen.
- Fixed sequence of notes (ascending circle of fifths).
- Clearly displays the notes in the key and scale you select.
- Outputs to CoreMIDI output ports (virtual, network and physical).
- Keeps sending MIDI while in the background.
- Can send MIDI notes and MIDI clock, so other apps can choose to synchronise.
Fifth Degree is a MIDI sequencer app supporting any CoreMIDI output: virtual MIDI, MIDI over Wi-Fi and CoreMIDI compatible hardware interfaces. Since it is a sequencer it does not generate sounds on its own, so use it with your favourite CoreMIDI-compatible sound generation app or hardware.
Fifth Degree was developed for the 2014 KVR Developer Challenge. It is powered by the MidiBus library from Audeonic.
So, in case you did miss it from yesterday, Tera Synth from VirSyn has arrived and it looks pretty awesome. You can find all the details in my original post here.
You’ve still got some time to fund these and get them over the stretch goals.
