What's New

Version 2.1

More refined. More affordable.

Create your own individual B-Step colour theme with the B-ColourStyler or choose one of the preset styles. Be able to switch through your favourite ones quickly and easily. Styling your own personal look has never been as easy as this. Find a colour scheme that works for you, on your monitor settings.

Expect simple project and file management with the new B-DataManager. It comes with a couple of bonus features like free downloadable presets and import and export of your projects via text or email. Add preview audio samples and comments to your projects and chords, or share your own work at the B-ProjectRepository.

If you're having difficulty in using one of the many features that B-Step provides, no problem!
We give you the option to embed the user manual inside the program itself, which makes it very easy to get to the right information at the right time, for any feature. It's as simple as dragging the 'Question Mark' to the component you want to learn about.

Disappointed

I got an iPad Pro and this app won’t even open up.

Pressed play and no sound

Broken.

Sequencer for guitarists and other chord people

I have tried most of the iPad sequencers out there, and found something to like in all of them. What's different about this one? Two things jump out. First, it's easy to chain or jump between sequences; for me, this is huge. Second, you choose notes from a chord instead of a whole scale. This is genuinely unusual, and would be frustrating if you couldn't chain. But with chaining you can set up a series of chord changes. (You can also do this in real time, as part of a performance.) If you want to experiment with Berlin-style sequencing but think in chords (or just need some help finding a musical-sounding sequence), this is one to look at. One more note about the UI: like Thesys, B-Step began life as a desktop VST. Unlike Thesys, the app version has been reformatted for the iPad screen, no zooming required.

v1.2.1: The developer keeps refining.
