*** Featured in Best New Apps! ***
Instantly reshape any loop beyond imaginable. Create amazing breaks, fills and transitions. Turn even the simplest sounds into unique animated textures. Sequential is an extremely fun yet versatile app for animated effect processing.
Sequential lets you load audio samples for looped playback and apply up to 11 different effects in a rhythmical order. It includes many classic algorithms such as low- and high-pass filters, flanger, resonator, bit crusher, but goes much further with Sinevibes' trademark wave transformer, circuit bender and even synthesizers controlled by the sound's dynamics.
Creating effect patterns with Sequential is more game than workflow. With its bold shapes, clever color coding and all-round use of animations, it feels alive and almost connected straight to your brain. All parameters you change are saved along the audio files and recalled without you even noticing — everything just works the way you think it should.
Whatever you hear coming out of Sequential can be recorded, even if you activate recording as you play. Moreover, all recordings are trimmed precisely to a bar, meaning you will always get audio that loops rhythmically.
Sequential comes with a tasty selection of bass and rhythm loops in a wide variety of music styles, including house, drum'n'bass, r'n'b, dubstep, trap, hardstyle, electro, and more.
You can import your own loops and export recordings both via the general pasteboard and iTunes file sharing. Sequential supports .wav and .aiff files in 16 bit 44.1 KHz format.

Fun, fast and easy loop-masher/manipulator
This is a multi effect unit in the veins of Effectrix (by sugar bytes). Really easy and fast to copy / paste in a drumloop (or whatever) from another app, and put an effect on each hit/beat, by just drawing it all out with your finger on the sequencer board, and change the effects parameters on the left side. Really fast workflow, and great for manipulating loops in all kinds of ways.
I do miss the ability to use more then one effect on each hit/beat. Also some kind of repeater/time-stretching thing would add even more possibilities here. Anyway, for 5 bucks you do get a lot of creative and powerful tools here. Very recommended!
The ONLY reason that I'm not giving this app a Five star is because I would like it to be implemented with a feature to add our own drum beats to go with the pre-installed sequences. It has really great potential, but I haven't used it since this is something that I thought this app would have from the start. Hopefully it's added on with future updates.
Would love to use this as a process with real time input... Can't wait to see where it goes! Very nice start! Worth your money and time.
