modstep is a Midi Sequencer. No,… modstep is The Midi Sequencer! Yes, it’s the best one from all the App Store… no doubt with this… and too bad for the suspense! There are so many reasons for this that it’s impossible for me to describe here all the great features included in it, But I will give you an overview of some of them that impressed me the most. The first one is not a feature, but the stability of the App. To make the tutorial, I worked everyday with modstep during more than 1 month… 2 weeks ago, I deleted my tutorial from my iPad, and I had to restart it from the beginning... (Note that because of this. I am known now as the modstep expert in all the Galaxies…). During all this time, no bugs! The second thing is the UI. Very easy to understand and the Drag & Drop feature is so cool! Some technic characteristics now... unlimited scenes! Variable speed per pattern! Unlimited MIDI & Audio Tracks! IAA compatible app or Audio Unit as an instrument or effect. -unlimited number of effects per track and Audiobus support.
modstep comes also with a Sampler and a Synthesizer too. The Sampler comes with a huge library of drum kits / pitch, volume, reverse, fx per slot, 3 band-eq, delay and reverb. The built in Synthesizer with up to 64 harmonics per voice, 3-band eq, delay, reverb, lfo and detune.
It comes also with 2 edit modes: a “Classic” Grid editor and a Step sequencer with a repeat notes feature.. An integrated keyboard with scales, a drum-pads. Up to 128 CC modulations per track! A sophisticated template system allows quick setup of tracks to control external MIDI hardware, apps or plugins....

In summary modstep is very powerful, very study, very well done and very easy to use. The Best MIDI Sequencer from the App Store! A Killer App. A Must Have!
