The MPG64-A (Midi Pattern Generator 64 Alpha) is a free 64 step midi sequencer designed to run on Win 7, Windows Vista or XP with a minimum screen resolution of 1024×768.
In addition to playing midi notes, the MPG64-A is capable of simultaneously recording the resulting audio, creating loopable WAV files that can be used in any audio application. An ‘Auto Set’ feature can be used to automatically calculate and correct for latency of the midi device prior to recording, resulting in loopable samples. The 64 step pattern data can also be exported to a midi file.
The MPG64-A features a row of parameter knobs which can control the duration and velocity of each note, and can also be used to set values for two continuous controllers. A ‘Controller Automation’ feature uses preset patterns to modulate the continuous controllers to create filter sweeps and random ‘sample and hold’ type effects.
The MPG64-A is also designed to run as a plug-in for Tu2 by Bram Bos. If you are triggering synthesizer software on the same computer, you will need a midi ‘loopback’ (like loopMIDI) to route the midi data.
