Building on the success of the original app, Patterning 2 takes things further and deeper with its unique and beautiful cyclic interface. It’s a sublime beatmaking experience in which you can lose yourself for days.
As the timeline spins around the circle you can tap in beats, swipe in velocity and build patterns. Each drum sound has its own track within the circle so you can always see as well as hear how they relate to each other. Each track can have up to 64 steps. You can automate parameters, lean on the ratcheting and swap kits out on-the-fly. The new version has a page of drum pads if you’d rather record live.
You have complete control over the tempo, rhythms, pattern direction, and which way things are going. There’s randomization on everything and you can record automation and sequence MIDI for running external gear or other internal apps.
There are hundreds of downloadable kits and you can work on those samples with envelopes, filters and a bunch of effects.
Nothing else looks like it or works like it.
