Autony is a musical sequence generator with a controllable level of unreliability. It creates musical sounding sequences that you can allow to mutate and change as they play to create ever changing, musically interesting parts in your music.
Autony generates sequences that are musically interesting and gives a great deal of control over them while they are playing from a clock divider that goes from 32nd notes all the way to multiple bars for generative ambience to a built in a fully automate-able note quantiser that even allows the generated notes to be constrained to chords. It embraces what Bram Bos has called the "freeform, modular and MIDI-centric." nature of the iOS music system and draws on generative traditions like the Turing Machine and Marbles from Mutable Instruments.
You can use Autony for all styles of music from adding texture to banging EDM, beautiful sequences for Berlin style electronica or drifting ambient textures.
