Warp MIDI Sequencer


Warp is a revolutionary new music-theory-focused MIDI sequencer for software and hardware synthesizers, designed for both composition and dynamic live performance. It currently is available as a Python library and a user interface is in development.

Inspirations include some of our favorite hardware and software such as the Sequentix Cirklon, the Elektron Monomachine, and Ableton Live. Like Ableton, Warp is grid based, yet instead of a piano roll, patterns are based natively on scale degrees and chord types. With an emphasis on selective randomness, direction controls, choreographed key-changes, customizable MIDI effects ("transforms"), and emergent behaviors, you haven't seen anything like it.

  Warp is currently in a developer beta preview stage. For now, you'll need to write a small amount of Python to compose songs. The GUI releasing later this year will make it more accessible to musicians everywhere. Questions, ideas, or feedback? Email Michael.

Warp is a free program - it is Apache 2 licensed and written in Python.
