SoundGrid Live! is a powerful matrix sequencer for iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad inspired by the revolutionary Yamaha Tenori-on instrument and suitable for professional musicians as well as for casual entertainment.

It is similar to the original SoundGrid application but has more performance modes and designed specifically for live performances.

Up to nine 16x16 matrix layers, 16 blocks grouping patterns across all layers. Six different performance modes: Sequence, Bounce, Queue (program modes), and Touch, Repeat, Hold (manual modes).

Various instruments and effects
