Cascadr For iPad Gets Major Update

Buying Choices

Developer Michael Aldridge has released an update to Cascadr, a unique sequencing synth for the iPad, which adds MIDI out and more. 

Here's what's new in Cascadr 2.0:

  • Added MIDI out via Wifi & Apple Camera Connection Kit
  • Extended range of frequencies available from 220Hz (A3) thru 3322Hz (Ab7)
  • MIDI sends note on and note off messages, as well as velocities for each note based on the volume you've chosen

About Cascadr

Cascadr experiments with the idea of playing a sequence of notes and a number of speeds - simultaneously. Rather than the sequences being played in time with each other (for example, 30bpm, 60bpm, 120bpm...) they are played at intervals of 1bpm - which generates an cascading effect.

There are eight notes in this sequence, and each note’s pitch can be chosen over a range of 2 octaves (on a chromatic scale) starting from A4 (or 440Hz). It’s also possible to alter the volume of each note, so emphasis can be placed on specific notes. 

Perhaps most importantly, you can choose the speed of the sequences. As the idea of this application is to play sequences with this cascading effect, you can only choose the speed of the first sequence. So, if you choose a speed of 10bpm, the next sequence will be played at 11bpm, the next at 12bpm and so on.

Pricing and Availability

Cascadr 2.0 is available now and is a free app.
