The earlier announced B-Step Sequencer by Monoplugs is now available in the App Store. B-Step joins some heavy competition as a new iOS step sequencer, but the native Launchpad support would probably make it an attractive option for Launchpad owners wishing to extend their options on the iPad.
Transform your iPad to a real music-sequencer workstation with B-Step!
The sequencer comes with native support for one or two Novation Launchpads. B-Step supports CoreMIDI, Virtual MIDI ports, Network MIDI and a lot of MIDI hardware devices!
It also supports MIDI Learn, so you can control B-Step’s user interface with any MIDI controller you like!
B-Step Sequencer can work as MIDI clock master or you can sync it to another clock master.
With B-Step you program your melodies in a few seconds and you can’t hit a wrong note. This sequencer is designed for improvisation and live use – your synthesizers will love B-Step.
