Procrastination has a new friend in qwertySeq()...

A new MIDI sequencer Chrome extension has been released. 

Developed by Matt Dowdney and William Chu, qwertySeq() is a free, updated 8-track sequencer, available on both Windows and Mac. It's designed for external hardware, and contains 8 banks of 8 sequences that are up to 16 steps in length each. 

According to the developers, "Either notes or control changes can be sequenced. There are also extensive keybindings for a more interactive experience during playback. Originally the project was started as a tool to sequence inexpensive, late eighties synths that didn’t have on-board sequencing capabilities utilizing the Web-MIDI API, the React JS library and Chrome."

This new release of the extension (0.9.0b) and future releases intend to allow saving and return audio recording. Learn more about the extension and download it for free here.
