harmonySEQ 0.15 “arising” released!

After 4 months of active developement and testing I am pleased to announce that harmonySEQ 0.15 is finally available to download! Not only there is a new, rearranged GUI featuring single window which make is far easier to manage your sequencers (now the pattern is rotated 90 degrees, which makes it more logical to use), but also OSC support, which allows you to control harmonySEQ via Ethernet! Many significant improvements have been included, colorful blinking diodes indicating playback, and ability to reorder sequencers, to name a few. Other changes worth highlighting include an optional ability to preserve chord’s octave, when changing it by an action, or some slight optimizations which improve harmonySEQ’s reaction time and lower it’s CPU consumption.

Check the changelog below for full list of changes!

harmonySEQ can be downloaded there.

Also, great thanks to all of you who helped me developing, provided me with ideas or feedback, sent me motivating e-mails, subscribed for news, promoted harmonySEQ or reported bugs! That was helpful, so I am really thankful!

    This is awesome! I have been looking for something like this for Linux for ages! I was almost ready to buy an Akai MPC 500 even though it has got some serious restrictions on the live sequencing capabilities. Also I was almost ready to run windows on one computer + ableton live.

    One thing I wonder, is harmonyseq able to send sysex commands and other commands as well? For example if i want to switch a multi or instrument on one synth before starting the next pattern, can harmonyseq translate the message when i hit pad into a message that will change the next prog in an external midi synth etc?
