Mobile Music Sequencer - US
By Yamaha Corporation of America
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Yamaha's Mobile Music Sequencer enables composers to combine a range of phrase patterns and create musical compositions intuitively, following the flow of composition, from phrases to sections and from sections to songs.
Wherever you are, you can now sketch the outline of a composition. In addition, you can use the ingredients to delicately craft songs on a Yamaha synthesizer, or in Steinberg Cubase.
First, try loading the demo song (a number of demo songs are provided). Tap on the settings icon in the top right of the screen, select [Digital Sympathy] from the Presets under the File tab, and press the Load button to read in the song.
Create a song right away as follows:
Step 1-Create phrases
You can choose from a rich selection of 382 preset phrases (the phrase is the smallest unit in the structure of a composition). Under Phrase in the View screen, tap on a cell in which no setting has been made, then tap on the Select button on the left. To listen to a preset phrase, tap on its name. It is also possible to use real-time recordings made using the keyboard within an application, or user phrases which have been created using piano roll input. Using the powerful Loop Remix function, it is possible to divide selected phrases at specified intervals and then order them randomly, automatically insert rolls or breaks, and thus rework them into new phrases.
Step 2-Create sections
Combine multiple phrases together to create a section. Phrases are arranged in a vertical block and playback is turned on and off using the Section button at the bottom of the screen. The phrases can be managed as a single unit.
By specifying codes for individual sections, you can easily create variations. Using the Create command you can also create a succession of new sections based on the phrase that is currently being played back, which allows production to proceed smoothly.
Step 3-Create Songs
Put together complete songs by pasting together sections. This is easily accomplished by touching the Section area and then just dragging and dropping sections into the data area. Naturally, you can also input sections by recording in real time or by using the piano roll screen.

• File export
As well as a function for outputting standard general-purpose MIDI files, the application also includes a function for exporting files in an even easier-to-use format designed for Yamaha synths, in which characteristic sounds are specified in advance. (MOTIF XF, S90XS/S70XS, MOXF6/MOXF8, MOX6/MOX8, MX49/61, Tyros5 and MOTIF XS)
Audio mix-down of a song or a phrase and conversion of the song or the phrase to an audio file can be performed in real time.

Audio files can be made compatible with SoundCloud and uploaded.
* To ensure the smooth operation, iPhone 4S or higher or iPod Touch 5th Generation or higher is recommended.
What's New in Version 3.3.1
Learning curve IU
Nice app, really hard to understand due to UI not friendly nor intuitive.
Bring back the original user interface of QY70, I build my own apps and know this was a poor production mobile interface.
At least let us have the option to use the original user interface of your QY70 since you give us the tones to buy.
Figured something out. It only works every other time, seriously.
Start it up, broke. Close it start again and it works. Close it and start again , broke. Etc...
At least I am able to get to to do something after the update.
This could be the app I was waiting for... So close!
Why is it so hard to import midi files? That should be the most basic thing that this does, but no!!!! I attached Dropbox and even opened an iCloud account to do this, but it's not letting me. :(
