Thesys is an extremely powerful and intuitive MIDI stepsequencer app, giving you control over just about all aspects of your favorite MIDI devices. Use Thesys to create varied and organic bass lines, screaming leads, pulsating chords, and organic pad sounds in the studio or on stage. For live musicians, Thesys provides an extremely versatile palette of performance options which can be triggered right from your MIDI keyboard: you can transpose, manipulate, twist up, mutate, and mangle your patterns without even getting near your iPad. No other MIDI sequencer plugin offers you the ease and power of Thesys. It is 100% MIDI compliant and therefore provides the ultimate MIDI sequencing solution.

Still great, but it's time for an update
This is still one of the best midi sequencers in terms of features, but it needs an update so it integrates better with live performances. MIDI clocking exists, but does not play nice with Ableton Link, so unless all apps are using MIDI clocking, Thesys has to be piped into the mix the old fashioned way. SugarBytes has been all over Ableton Link with their other apps...it's time to give Thesys some of that goodness. Also, needs a new idea with the user interface. As mentioned in other reviews, controls are itsy-bitsy, even on a 12" iPad Pro. With a little TLC, this is a five-star app that will be a main work-horse in mobile music for a long time.
Nice that it has independent sequences for note, velocity and gate. I can't think of any others that do that. Would be great if the pattern shift buttons were a bit bigger and other interface elements were a little more finger friendly. Otherwise a pretty tight sequencer with a ton of options built in.
The good: This sequencer is "over the top". It is so much fun to listen to and VERY powerful.
The bad: The UI is a bit "fiddly" and not as iOS-friendly as one might expect. It could be a pro performance app if the controls weren't like that, even with zoom it is not so good. It will be amazing on the iPad Pro I think.
