White Noise Audio Software have provided details of what’s coming in version 1.0.6 of Genome MIDI Sequencer (GMS) – their pattern based MIDI sequencer for the iPad. The update will include support for two-finger scrolling gestures in the pattern editor, support for scales, and more.
New option for using scrolling gesture in the Pattern editor: Scroll and zoom using the two-finger gesture. Fans of the old navigation still have the option of of using the ‘View snapping’ option which keeps the view aligned to a bar, octave, and one of the set zoom levels.
Support for Scales: You can now pick from one of the many pre-defined scales (or make your own) which will limit the visible notes to just notes in the scale. This will make entering notes much more easy and fun. It’s also nice if you have a drum machine that only responds to certain notes. When picking a new scale, you’ll have the option to rescale your existing notes to the new scale. There are now also dragable buttons to adjust the length of whatever notes you have selected and a quick delete button to delete the selected notes. Additional toolbar elements are planned.
Ability to toggle off snapping to the grid: Users could previously set the grid resolution high if they wanted to do ‘off grid’ stuff, but this button makes it much easier to accomplish.
Graphical Improvements: There is also a host of small graphical improvements to the Pattern Editor. Among them: CC dots are now color coded to make it easier to distinguish them and fonts are also bigger for the Note names.
