TvanD has released version 1.1 of Changeling Sequencer – the diatonic chord sequencer for the iPad. The update includes tracks. You now have 16 tracks (one for each MIDI channel), quantization, MIDI File export, support for custom SoundFonts, and more!
This scale locking in combination with tracks makes for a pretty unique & radical feature. It basically enables you to improvise a solo over a chord progression like a jazz pianist. For example; you can play and modulate a naturalMinor solo over a fixed-root harmonicMinor progression.
Also it’s really awesome to connect Changeling via the 16 MIDI channels to your DAW, and use that as a sound module. Here use scale and root locking to fix drum sounds or bass lines.
Other new features:
Meet Changeling; the super easy, flexible, diatonic chord sequencer from the future. This sequencer has its foundation in musical improvisation theory. All recorded musical notes remain relative, and can be changed in various ways during playback.
It’s a simple tool for people that like to create music, but don’t have the discipline or time for studying music theory, or years of piano improvisation practice. Changeling does not generate compositions, you remain in full creative control over the music that you come up with.
