Planetone (planet-tone) is a planetary music sequencer where players use plants to create sound. Sprouts grow and disappear over time, allowing for live melodies to be played over each loop. Trees play the same notes as sprouts, but do not disappear. Mushrooms play a randomized pitch each time to add variety to the melody. To tie everything together, Cacti create drum beats. Change the atmosphere of your planet and adjust the BPM by tapping or dragging the slider at the top of the screen.
There are 12 sprout colors and 12 cactus colors to choose from, for an endless variety of loops that grow and change as you play.
Note: Planetone depends on device performance to maintain a constant speed, so older devices may experience hiccups while playing. To avoid this, try using a slower BPM.

Making music is EASY lol
This app makes making melodies so easy and fun! The controls are simple enough to grasp but the variety of tools make you always want to reopen the app and experiment.
My tip to new users would be to line up all the colors one-by-one in a rainbow to test them out and see which ones do what first–
Or just give the planet a fast spin and add plants at random!
There are so many ways to experiment!
Great melody maker
Love playing with this app. Easy way to quickly throw together a tune, with plenty of room for experimentation. The built-in instruments are wonderful!
Pro Tip: to save your beats, use the screen recorder built into iOS11. Decent quality if you want to take recordings further with other programs
Fun & Cute
A great app! Worth the 99 cents I bought it for. Save your beats by using the screen recorder on iOS 11. Only thing I would change would be to have an in-app save function but otherwise, so much fun!!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
