Helio is a libre music sequencer designed to help the composer focus on the notes. It runs on all major platforms, including Android! You can compose on the go, and export MIDI files to turn the sketches into full-blown pieces later!

@unfa thanks for the suggestion. Maybe that's something for me as I am stuggeling with #ardour

Will definitively check this out!

@unfa wooow, this looks very neat. I'm going to have to play around with it later.

@unfa I tried this before, quite nice, though lacks in documentation a bit.
And also MIDI input, which is kinda killer.. I asked them what it take to get MIDI input working:

For using helio, see keyboard shortcuts here…

With midi out it would be great tool for composing. As a real DAW it does not work, but for composing I live the interface. My workflow would be compose something in helio, and then record it as midi in Mixbus to continue with getting right sounds.
