A brief demo of an audio sequencer I’ve been working on for SEGA Master System. To be clear – you right the audio sequence in assembly code (see start of video) which is then compiled, and then the ROM file actually plays back the sequence. Just some fun for a Sunday evening http://little-scale.blogspot.com

The goal of this project was to create a tool that musicians and casual music fans could use to create music patterns and collaborate on rhythmic ideas with friends. We recognize the performance is currently unacceptable for serious use, but look forward to updates in browser technology to make tools like this a viable option for music lovers.

Audioprom was originally called Sausage Sequencer. The idea was to build a sound sequencer that uses slices of sausages placed on the iPad as physical markers to make sounds. After our first prototype we realized that sausages, or any other food item, is sensed reliably only when touching your hand. As soon as you let go of the sausage, the iPad thinks it’s gone too. Our dream of chopping and placing food on the screen to make sounds ended there, but we were left with a decent audio sequencer. So we kept at it, trying to make an intuitive and simple interface that takes advantage of the multitouch screen.
Sausage Sequencer turned into Audioprom, a sequencer for fingers on the iPad.
Audioprom is an audio sequencer and live performance application for the iPad.
“We just launched Audioprom, a super intuitive audio sequencer app for the iPad. Audioprom doesn’t look or feel like other iPad sequencers out there because it doesn’t simulate popular physical interfaces from 90’s drum machines. We built it from the ground up for the multitouch screen.
It’s been a labor of love. We built it because we wanted it for ourselves and now we hope others might like it enough to buy it so we get to keep working on it.
We posted some how-to and demo videos at audioprom.cwandt.com.
