Downloads for Xequence
You can either browse the manual online or download it as a PDF for offline consumption or printing.
Korg Gadget projects for demo songs
Xequence comes with two demo songs, "Alpha" and "Beta", which showcase the app's capabilities.
Of course, they will not generate any sound on their own. However, they have both been produced using Korg Gadget, which is an app that contains synths and effects and is available for both iPhone and iPad.
If you happen to have purchased Gadget already, then you can download the Gadget projects we used to make these songs for yourself.
Please be sure to enable "Advanced" MIDI input in Gadget!
How to download, "install" and configure the Gadget projects
Yes, it's really this complicated! It's not Xequence's fault however — it's just how convoluted the iOS / iPadOS platform is. Sorry about that!
- On your iPhone of iPad, open Safari and download the projects by tapping here and here and then again on "Download" in the popup.
- Open the "Files" app, and navigate to "Downloads" in the sidebar.
- Tap and hold the corresponding zip file (Alpha.zip or Beta.zip), and then in the popup, tap on "Move".
- In the popup file list, navigate to "On My iPhone" / "On My iPad" and then tap on "KORG Gadget".
- Tap on "Copy" in the top right corner of the popup (it says "Copy" instead of "Move" which you had actually tapped (iOS / iPadOS bug), so the downloaded files will remain in your downloads folder and you have to delete them later).
- Back in the sidebar, tap on "On My iPhone" / "On My iPad", then on "KORG Gadget".
- In the file list, tap on the respective file (Alpha.zip or Beta.zip) to extract the actual project.
- Tap and hold on the original zip file (Alpha.zip or Beta.zip), and in the popup, tap Delete (it's not needed anymore).
- Tap on "Alpha.gdproj2" or "Beta.gdproj2". It should open the project in Gadget.
- In Gadget's Settings menu (cogwheel), be sure to enable "Advanced" MIDI Input.
- Next to "Other Settings", tap "Open" to open the regular iOS / iPadOS "Settings" app.
- Scroll all the way down to "Gadget 2", and then enable both "Background Audio" and "Network MIDI".
- Launch Xequence, and load "Alpha" from the "Demos" folder.
You should now have a working, complete project that will use Gadget's sounds and effects when you hit "Play".
Note: We used a few In-App Purchases in Gadget for both projects, so if you do not happen to have the same IAPs as well, then some sounds / drums may be missing.
