BACH IN A BOX.
FUGUE MACHINE is a tool inspired by composition techniques used in Baroque music and Serialism — e.g. Bach’s canons and fugues, and Schoenberg’s twelve-tone technique. The idea was to design a tool to manipulate a melody’s speed, direction, and pitch, as well as play multiple variations of the melody simultaneously.
As it turned out, the best implementation for this was to reimagine one of the most fundamental building blocks of all music sequencers: the piano roll.
THE PIANO ROLL, REIMAGINED.
FUGUE MACHINE is the world’s first multi-playhead piano roll. Create a musical sequence and play it back with up to four playheads at once — each at various speeds, directions, and pitches. You see the playheads dance over the music sequence, and hear the complex patterns that emerge.
/ Supports Ableton Link, MIDI, AudioBus, Audiobus 3 MIDI, and Inter-App Audio.
// BUG FIXES
SYSTEM SETTINGS SAVE ISSUES
In some cases, system settings were not saved between sessions. This may have caused the welcome screen to show or midi routings to reset on each launch. Resolved now.
// ABOUT THIS UPDATE
Just a quick bug fix :]
Also, I'm still hard at work on my new project (13+ months now!). I've never worked on anything for so long... and I'm still super excited about it :] Check my twitter (@alexandernaut) for a short teaser.
Anyway, thanks again for your support, and please let me know if anything comes up.
All the best,
