Free Karl Bartos (ex Kraftwerk) iPhone app available

April 6, 2011 · Posted in Uncategorized 

Karl Bartos (ex-Kraftwerk) and Masayuki Akamatsu (media artist and author of various iPhone apps such as Banner, Oscillator, Echochops) have created an iPhone app, ‘The Mini-Composer’, which is actually a 16-step music sequencer (you can get it for free right here). Executive producer for the app is Jean-Marc Lederman (The Weatherman + partner in Sushi crime in Brussels with our chief editor Bernard Van Isacker).

In a reaction Karl Bartos says: “We have created this simple music app for fun: it implements the basic waves of a synthesizer with a 16-step sequencer. This app is totally free of charge but we would be very glad if, as a relief to people’s suffering following the earthquake and tsunami, you would consider a donation to lend a helping hand to Japan. Please enjoy our music and think Japan.”

The application has the following functions:

  1. 16 steps sequencer
  2. Start/stop sequence
  3. Multi-touch note input
  4. 32 polyphonic tones + 1 drum track
  5. 4 waves (saw, triangular, square, sine)
  6. 4 drumbeat loops
  7. Drums on/off
  8. Random notes
  9. Clear notes
  10. Additional information
