MINI-COMPOSER by Karl Bartos and Masayuki Akamatsu

By Masayuki Akamatsu

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Karl Bartos (electronic musician, ex-KW, co-composer of songs like The Robots, The Model, Computer World,...) and Masayuki Akamatsu (media artist and author of various iPhone apps such as Banner, Oscillator, Echochops,...) create a 16 step music sequencer which is free, simple and fun. The executive producer is Jean-Marc Lederman.

"We have created this simple music app for fun: it implements the basic waves of a synthesizer with a 16 step sequencer. This app is totally free of charge but we would be very glad if, as a relief to people's suffering following the earthquake and tsunami, you would consider a donation to lend a helping hand to Japan. Please make use of the link button to the Red Cross site."

Customer Reviews

Simple and fun, but emphasis on simple

This is a fun little step sequencer that has you creating music in seconds flat. My only complaint is it might be a little too simple. There are very few presets, a rather small grid and no option to import your own sounds. Without those features this is little more than a toy. That said, I assume it was the intent of the appmaker to create something basic and fun. If that is the case, this is a success.

Pretty cool

Simple but very fun! It's easy to work with, not complicated. If you're a Kraftwerk fan, you'll certain dig this app!

Love it!

This app is simple and great. The sounds are sexy and smooth.
