Yamaha's Mobile Music Sequencer enables composers to combine a range of phrase patterns and create musical compositions intuitively, following the flow of composition, from phrases to sections and from sections to songs. Wherever you are, you can now sketch the outline of a composition. In addition, you can use the ingredients to delicately craft songs on a Yamaha synthesizer, or in Steinberg Cubase. First, try loading the demo song (a number of demo songs are provided). Tap on the settings icon in the top right of the screen, select [Digital Sympathy] from the Presets under the File tab, and press the Load button to read in the song. Create a song right away as follows: Step 1-Create phrases You can choose from a rich selection of 382 preset phrases (the phrase is the smallest unit in the structure of a composition). Under Phrase in the View screen, tap on a cell in which no setting has been made, then tap on the Select button on the left. To listen to a preset phrase, tap on its name. It is also possible to use real-time recordings made using the keyboard within an application, or user phrases which have been created using piano roll input. Using the powerful Loop Remix function, it is possible to divide selected phrases at specified intervals and then order them randomly, automatically insert rolls or breaks, and thus rework them into new phrases. Step 2-Create sections Combine multiple phrases together to create a section. Phrases are arranged in a vertical block and playback is turned on and off using the Section button at the bottom of the screen. The phrases can be managed as a single unit. By specifying codes for individual sections, you can easily create variations. Using the Create command you can also create a succession of new sections based on the phrase that is currently being played back, which allows production to proceed smoothly. Step 3-Create Songs Put together complete songs by pasting together sections. This is easily accomplished by touching the Section area and then just dragging and dropping sections into the data area. Naturally, you can also input sections by recording in real time or by using the piano roll screen. Advantages • Built-in software synth with 92 high-quality sounds (including 9 types of drumkit) enables faithful rendering of sequence patterns. • Sound editing using filters, EG, and other effects • Mixer function for each part • Effects including reverb, chorus, and variations • Additional phrases and sounds Four additional voice and phrase datapacks can be purchased directly using the application. (Dance Pop, Electronic, Hip Hop, R&B). Moreover, two additional song and phrase datapacks and one phrase datapack can be also purchased directly using the application.(Song and Phrase datapack: TeddyLoid/Mobile Conductor, access/Eien Dive, Phrase databack: QY Pack) *In case your purchased pack can't be transferred to the app, please tap the "Restore Purchases" button at the bottom of the purchase screen. • File export As well as a function for outputting standard general-purpose MIDI files, the application also includes a function for exporting files in an even easier-to-use format designed for Yamaha synths, in which characteristic sounds are specified in advance. (MOTIF XF, S90XS/S70XS, MOXF6/MOXF8, MOX6/MOX8, MX49/61, Tyros5 and MOTIF XS) • Mix-down Audio mix-down of a song or a phrase and conversion of the song or the phrase to an audio file can be performed in real time. • Compatibility with SoundCloud Audio files can be made compatible with SoundCloud and uploaded. * To ensure the smooth operation, iPhone 4S or higher or iPod Touch 5th Generation or higher is recommended.



  • Not worth the money

    By Peterguzinya
    Can’t load existing midi files! What app or device claiming to be a sequencer is not capable of playing midi files! In addition, when downloading a midi file onto an iPad, you can’t open it into this app! How does one get their money back due to false advertising? Also, can’t give a zero rating!!! Since originally writing this review, I tried Yamaha support and could not find support for apps of any kind - only for hardware products! Did I not see something buried in eye candy? The Montage is not listed as a device it can work with.
  • Not an arranger app! Cool and fun close to professional apps but not one...

    In the best comment that this app haz someone said “this is a powerful arranger” - No, its not. Its a powerful and easy to comprehend looping and mixing loops app bot not even close to an arranger. Just because loops can be arranged in groups and steps this app is not an arranger or else Apples Garage Band is an arranger, and all of the music making apps are arrangers. Yamaha, Korg, Casio, Ketron etc. all of them are calling an arranger keyboard the one that control “styles” with one finger in real time. A style has at least four instruments. So far i haven't found a smart phone app that can do that despite the fact that smartphones are in some cases more powerful then laptops now days. There are so many midi styles that are cool and ready on internet that can spark the next idea and so many music making apps groups ignore having this option in a pocket versions. Like how hard it is to make an app to play and edit any midi style from all kind of old arranger keyboards in a smart phone that already is capable of rolling some extremely hight quality graphics?.. this is just sad because literally i am looking for this kind of app since the iPhone 4s came out.

  • Mobile Sequencer

    If only it could import XG midi files it would be perfect. At the moment it is just potential for greatness and a little tedious.
  • Best music app by far in the app store.

    By blueplanet6
    I think this is an excellent app. I enjoy this app every time I use it. I have been making very good songs with it. I just hope that the app will work with the new iOS coming up this fall 2017. With all the new good features in the new iOS. I hope this app is compatible otherwise I would not install it. If I had to choose between new iOS and Yamaha music sequencer. I won't think twice. Clearly I will choose Yamaha.
  • I need real time chord like Yamaha keyboards accompaniment

  • RS7000...Waiting for the RS7000!!!

    Please recreate an iOS app for the Yamaha RS7000 music production studio (integrated sampling sequencer).
  • Huge Potential if you invest the time

    By Darevalo
    This is an absolutely excellent and powerful arranger app that is a secret weapon in my iPad music arsenal. Feature for feature, there are very few iPad apps (if any) that can compete with this programs long list of abilities. So why is it not more popular? While it is daunting as it goes pretty deep, I think the real obstacle of this program is a beyond terrible interface design, and a very limited and dated sound palette. With that said, the ability to export as MIDI, as well as a half a dozen other arranger formats, this app has mojo for those that look beneath its creepy pink surface.
  • I love this app, but...

    By SurviveTheFAYZ
    This app is a pretty great sequencer, but can be tricky to understand. I was looking for a way to modify the Cutoff Filter using the Control Change menu in the Piano Roll mode, but I couldn't find anything that pointed toward it. I'd appreciate it if the developers of this app were to make the Control Change a bit more clear as to what the options control. Thank you for your time.
  • Yamaha...what the...

    By angelo grover
    nothing is worked upon first initiating after update, then, back to same old disappointment: i have to turn off and turn back on dropbox within the app menu for it to work again Jeez Yamaha, first the Montage half-baked product, then the need for a $700 hardware workstation "lite" to unlock the superb new FM app, and now the same old poorly executed "bug fixes" for this app Well i am glad i sold my major letdown Motif XF on ebay after the two afore mentioned pizz-poor forays...why don't you guys learn from Korg...are you all truly that inept and out of touch...the Reface line strengthens my case to point
