A beautiful and playful multi-voice synthesizer.
Seaquence lets you create, modify, and share musical compositions of swimming "planktone" creatures in a stereo-spatialized mixing dish. Each creature has a voice and a sequencer, and only the closest are heard as they swim around your view. With Seaquence's fully capable audio engine, you can create layered and dynamic compositions with a wide range of sounds ranging from ambient drones to intricately layered rhythms and transients. With its playful and colorful interface, even composers who are brand new to synthesis will be able to unlock their synesthetic creativity. You can save your sessions, post and share them, and explore the Seaquence Galaxy to listen what others have shared to get inspired.

Ratings and Reviews
This is a pretty unique app, and lots of fun to play with. I’ve got some really inspiring loops from it so far, and I’m sure I’ve only scratched the surface.
I did have some problems with the IAP, where my iPhone would not recognize the purchase made on my iPad, but with help from the developer this was resolved.
Feature request: can we get Audiobus or IAA implemented?
Hey Michael! Glad you’re having fun with the app. Seaquence is a universal app, so if you bought the Seaquence Complete IAP on an iPhone you should be able to use that on your iPad as well. Make sure you’re logged into the same iTunes account on both devices and tap “Restore Purchase” in the Seaquence Complete screen on the other device.
A brilliant and imaginative synth!
I was immediately drawn in to this immersive music creation experience. The delightful interface is capable of complexities that defy its simple and unique appearance. A wonderful synth for creating ambient and rhythmic soundscapes. Just a few minutes of experimenting will reveal some very impressive sounds and patterns. My kind of synth! Landscape mode, please!

Seems to have a calming effect. Fun to play with,even though I haven’t figured it out.
