• Share audio or MIDI through iMessages, e-mail, Whatsapp or AirDrop. Save audio, MIDI or .motif file to your device's file system.

• AUv3 MIDI Plug-In In-App Purchase:
Incorporate Piano Motifs seemlessly in your workflow by instantiating it once or multiple times in an app that can host AUv3 MIDI Plug-Ins, for example: AUM, AudioBus 3, ApeMatrix, Drambo or EG Nodes. Please note that Piano Motifs as an AUv3 MIDI Plug-In will not play any sound by itself, it generates MIDI that can be routed to other apps and effects instantiated in a host. IMPORTANT: GarageBand does not support MIDI only Plug-ins, so the AUv3 will not work in GarageBand.

• AUv3 MIDI Plug-In features include:
- Ability to play Piano Motifs in sync and out of sync with the host.
- State saving functionality.
- Independent programmable MIDI channels for melody, accompaniment, optional third track, and optional melody harmony track.
- Interactive octave shifting for melody and accompaniment.
- Controllable Melody and Accompaniment Velocity parameters.
- Start Delay and BPM multiple with respect to the Host in Sync mode.

•  MIDI Out In-App Purchase: 
Play the music generated by Piano Motifs on your favorite synthesizer, DAW, a connect/route/mix app like AUM, or any app that has Virtual MIDI Destination (MIDI In) capabilities. IMPORTANT: Before purchasing please be aware that Piano Motifs DOES NOT OFFER Ableton Link functionality.

• MIDI Out In-App Purchase features include: 
- Programmable delay for the start of a motif
- Independent programmable MIDI channels for melody, accompaniment and an optional third track
- MIDI Out settings are saved between Piano Motifs sessions

• Piano Motifs chooses a music key from many different scales and an accompaniment from a varied set of accompaniments. Piano Motifs then uses its musical theory algorithms to overlay a melody in the chosen key and accompaniment. Piano Motifs are short, they go from around  16 seconds to around 30 seconds.
