Xequence is a MIDI sequencer, editor, arranger & controller for iPhone & iPad.

New version 2.2.5
Old version 2.2.4
Release Notes NEW: - BETTER TEMPO AND TIME SIGNATURE HANDLING: The "beat unit" can now be set manually in the tempo menu (this can change the metre of the song). For example, for 6/8 time, it can be set to "1/4 dotted" to provide the correct tempo. It is also taken into account for tempo received from Ableton Link peers, so it could be used to "process" that tempo (for example, halve or double it). - IMPROVED METRONOME and GRID HANDLING for compound time signatures. - NEW SWING ENGINE: The length of the swing (defaults to 8th note) can now be set, independently per track, and non-destructively as usual. - Added Drum Map for Fractal Bits. IMPROVEMENTS: - Arranger: Make "Controllers to own tracks" also work for clips without note data. - Ruler: The ruler will now show subdivisions (upper number of time signature) as dots. - Keyboard: Fixed and much more robust scrolling behaviour, both keyboards can be scrolled independently even while playing chords. - The tempo menu button will now show a "/2" symbol when the "1/2 speed" toggle (now with a cute snail icon!) is enabled. - The upper and lower number of the time signature can now be tapped to directly enter a value. - Various optimizations. FIXES: - Xequence projects (.xeqproj) can again be opened in Xequence via "Open In" / share sheets. - Keyboard: Prevent iOS "Copy/Paste" menu from popping up when playing chords in "Scroll" mode. - Prevent dragging loop region handles during recording. - Some modifications to the project weren't always registered and the "Save" button would still be greyed out. Fixed. MISCELLANEOUS: - Every Xequence release from now on will be named after a small Irish town or village that is totally unknown, but beautiful or in some way relevant nonetheless!
