MidiPatterns is a multitrack, pattern-oriented, MIDI step sequencer. You can use it as a simple drum machine, or to handle complex multi-timbral, polyphonic scores, controlling multiple hardware and software synthesizers at once. Please note that MidiPatterns does not generate sounds by itself.


• virtually unlimited number of polyphonic midi tracks per document

• output to multiple MIDI devices, directly connected or linked through a network

• virtually unlimited number of patterns per document, each with a size variable between 1 and 256 steps and specific time signature settings

• each step in a track can send volume plus 8 midi controller messages

• randomizing capabilities to improve expressiveness: notes properties (velocity, duration, probability, swing) and step controller messages can be set to change subtly and randomly during playback

• patterns can be assembled in variable length sequences

• imports and exports MIDI files

• MIDI clock synchronization, both as master and as slave

• articulated mute and solo configuration

What's New in Version 2.2

• the interaction with the score grid has been completely revised and now allows to directly define the duration of the events without resorting to the modulations editor.

• the “overlay” mode and the corresponding switch on the control bar have been removed, since now you can access the contextual menus of notes and events with just a “long press”; the overlay in the modulations editor is now always active to give access to the contextual menus of each slider.

• the “general” page of the preferences panel has been renamed “score & events”, has a new icon and includes a new panel devoted to the events in which you can assign their initial attributes.

• the “initialization” page of the preferences panel has been renamed “tracks & patterns” and adds the ability to choose whether to include a percussive or/and a chromatic track when creating a new document, or even none.
