Nora is a flexible pattern based arpeggiator / phrase sequencer in plugin format that assists you while creating melodies, without sacricifing your own style or sounding cliché. Its full contextual interface allows the creation of solo melodies, rhythmic basslines or stabs instantly. It may be used in both live and offline environment.
