Okaynokay’s Aquatic Music app, SEAquence, Updated

Seaquence is beautiful and playful multi-voice synthesizer. We can’t really describe it. It’s best to watch the video below. Seaquence lets you create, modify, and share musical compositions of swimming “planktone” creatures in a stereo-spatialized mixing dish.

Each creature has a voice and a sequencer, and only the closest are heard as they swim around your view. With Seaquence’s fully capable audio engine, you can create layered and dynamic compositions with a wide range of sounds ranging from ambient drones to intricately layered rhythms and transients.

With its playful and colorful interface, even composers who are brand new to synthesis will be able to unlock their synesthetic creativity. You can save your sessions, post and share them, and explore the Seaquence Galaxy to listen what others have shared to get inspired.
