Chris Randall has provided details of his upcoming analog-style four-channel MIDI sequencer for the iPad – Phaedra! As you can see from the screenshot each of the four channels has 32 steps, with each step able to control note, velocity, gate time, as well as two user-selectable MIDI CCs.
Phaetra will also include a chaining feature with 4 x 32, 2 x 64, and 1 x 128 modes. The steps can be 32nd note, 16th note, 8th trips, and 8th note, with each “bus” able to run in arbitrary lengths. It also includes “Live Control” knobs which can be used to modify one of the four destinations.
The feature list is not yet complete but we are told both “MIDI background mode” as well as Korg’s Wireless Sync-Start Technology (WIST) should be supported. It supports both hardware and network MIDI, and can both send and receive MIDI Clock Sync from an external source.
