BACH IN A BOX.
FUGUE MACHINE is a tool inspired by composition techniques used in Baroque music and Serialism — e.g. Bach’s canons and fugues, and Schoenberg’s twelve-tone technique. The idea was to design a tool to manipulate a melody’s speed, direction, and pitch, as well as play multiple variations of the melody simultaneously.
As it turned out, the best implementation for this was to reimagine one of the most fundamental building blocks of all music sequencers: the piano roll.
THE PIANO ROLL, REIMAGINED.
FUGUE MACHINE is the world’s first multi-playhead piano roll. Create a musical sequence and play it back with up to four playheads at once — each at various speeds, directions, and pitches. You see the playheads dance over the music sequence, and hear the complex patterns that emerge.
/ Supports Ableton Link, MIDI, AudioBus, Audiobus 3 MIDI, and Inter-App Audio.
Neue Funktionen von Version 1.4.0
// NEW FEATURES
PATTERN BACKUP/EXPORTING IMPROVEMENTS
It's now much easier to backup and export your Pattern Libraries.
First, the Backups Menu is now located inside the Pattern Menu — much more convenient than before (buried in settings). To check it out, go to More Menu > Patterns > Backups. (The Backups button is in the lower right corner).
In the Backups Menu, each Backup File now has a share button on the right side — allowing you to send the Backup File to other devices with Airdrop, over email, and more.
// BUG FIXES
PROGRAM CHANGES NOT SENT TO 'ALL PLAYHEADS' DESTINATION
If enabled, MIDI Program Changes would not be sent to the 'All Playheads' MIDI Destination. Fixed now.
// ABOUT THIS UPDATE
I've been meaning to update the file system for a while now — to make it more robust and easier to backup/export — and after the recent update to 1.3.0, I thought I should just finally do it.
Anyway, I hope you find the update useful, and please reach out if anything comes up. Also, a huge thank you to all the beta testers who helped ensure this file system transition will be as smooth as possible :]
All the best,
