Polymeter ~ Compose Polymeter Based Music


Polymeter is a MIDI sequencer for music that’s in multiple prime meters (1, 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, etc.) simultaneously. Each track has its own loop length, and when the lengths differ, the tracks “slip” (or shift phase) relative to each other. The resulting interference pattern is sufficiently intricate that variations similar to the embellishments of a live performer can be generated algorithmically.

Features:
  • Multitrack step sequencer for polymeter
  • Each track has its own loop length
  • Any number of tracks, of any length
  • Full clipboard support (copy/cut/paste)
  • Unlimited undo and redo for all edits
  • Multiple tracks can be edited at once
  • Optionally shows current position within each track
  • Drag reordering of tracks
  • Exports a MIDI file
  • Join adjacent steps to make tied notes
  • Velocity editing
  • Controller tracks
  • Recording of live arrangement
  • Editing of arrangement on timeline
  • Inter-track modulation of mute, note, velocity, duration, position, and more
  • Live performance view with full screen mode
  • Recursive modulation (modulation of modulation) for mute and position
  • Modulation graphing via Graphviz
  • MIDI mapping of all parameters with learn mode
  • Optionally transmits MIDI clock
