dot Melody is a kind of sequencer. An unique one. I have a little problem to explain why I love this App so much because there is a lot of things that you can not do with it but because of this dot Melody is an awesome App....
So, dot Melody is a Midi sequencer. 3 tracks only! 3 "monophonic" tracks! (Lead, Bass & Drum). It means that you can not play chords, a kick with a close Hi-hat...
it got me somewhat destabilized initially, trying to program a classic drum pattern... The grid is "weird" too... The vertical axis set the note
duration, the horizontal one the pitch. On the left side of the screen, you can choose the Chord (scale), on the right side, the patterns selection. You can create as much patterns as you like. In the option menus, you can set the Time signature, the Scale, the Root note, the Chords (scale) and create custom one. Add a Delay for a track and a Reverb to the whole mix. All the parameters can be change in play mode.
You can also generate a random pattern, randomise one, and play it in reverse mode.
In summary: with dot Melody you can create a melody very fast, with fun and a really great sounding. Even if it's a Midi sequencer, I prefer to use the internal preset. I really love them...). You can also use dot Melody as a random music generator, or a Drone.
A Killer App!
