October is a 4 tracks sequencer.
With it, you will be able to create a 8 bit song.
The tracks 1 & 2 play a Square wave sound, the track 3 a triangle one and the last track, noises. 32 different noises are available.
For the 2 first channel 4 duty cycle parameters allow you to change the sound.
Each track can play one note at time.
Programing your sequence is really easy. You can copy, cut and move note (s). The note length can be set from 1/16 to 7 bars 15/16.
You can set the volume, the octave and the duty parameter indepently for each notes.
2 song modes are available.
Linear and Loop
The first one is a traditional mode.
You create patterns to make your song.
With the second mode, you create loops. 16 max.
Then you add them to the Timeline to create your song.
The App is very well done, very easy to use and very study too.
The loop mode is really great.
I don't have bad things to say about it. (The only weird thing to me is the metronome setting which can not be settled accurately. Ex: it jump from 100 bpm to 113 bpm, then to 129 bpm)
This App has been released 2 months ago (I guess) and for a begining, I am impressed... No bugs, nothing...
I have only one wish for the futur which an Audio routing feature. Audiobus or IAA.
Sure, you can export your project as an.aac or .asm (6502 ASM6 code) file but most of professional musicians who working with iPad only really need an Audio routing feature.
It's the only reason why I can't say that it's a Killer App and I really hope that this will be implemented in a future update.
This App seems to have been developed for game music usage (Nes) so perhaps that the lack of an Audio routing feature, the Tempo setting are not so primordial for the music game creator.... I also don't know the possibility offer with an.asm file....
ASM is an all purpose Java bytecode manipulation and analysis framework. It can be used to modify existing classes or to dynamically generate classes, directly in binary form. ASM provides some common bytecode transformations and analysis algorithms from which custom complex transformations and code analysis tools can be built. ASM offers similar functionality as other Java bytecode frameworks, but is focused on performance. Because it was designed and implemented to be as small and as fast as possible, it is well suited for use in dynamic systems (but can of course be used in a static way too, e.g. in compilers).
