[prMac.com] Rochester, New York - RoGame Software today is proud to announce the release and immediate availability of Quincy for iOS, a most unique music composition tool. Quincy is a tool for the creation of image-based, interactive, live music. Compositions can be looped and react to touch during play. They can also be shared via AirDrop, messaging and email.
Quincy's core engine is a full implementation of Conway's Game of Life, capable of generating all possible Life variants including HighLife and Seeds. It comes with a Life editor, a large library of patterns, color mixer, features an adjustable grid size, random cell insertion and many display options. Editing tools go beyond pen and pattern stamp and also include options like copy, paste and rotate.
Quincy ships with three sound modules (Chroma, Gregorian and Pentrix) with many more to come. Each module uses its own algorithm to create sound but also defines the key and a base scale to be used as tone material. The Chroma module is geared towards atonal music with several symmetric and chromatic scales. The Gregorian module employs church modes and the Pentrix module offers 27 types of pentatonic scales.
There are two playback modes, audio and MIDI. In audio mode playback is routed through a device's speakers or headphones. This mode offers 128 instruments and adjustable reverb settings. MIDI over WiFi uses Bonjour for discovery of suitable MIDI destinations to seamlessly integrate Quincy's output into any DAW like Logic or Ableton.
