FretPet is a powerful guitar-oriented music sequencer, composition tool, and musical toy with a unique dynamic interface. Use FretPet to make chords, choose fingerings in any tuning, build chord progressions, sequence picking patterns, and quickly create coherent musical compositions that you can use for web, multimedia, and professional recording.

FretPet uses the built-in QuickTime synthesizer and acts as a CoreMIDI source device for programs like GarageBand, Absynth, FM7, Reason, SimpleSynth, MIDIPipe, and many others. FretPet exports to QuickTime MOV and Standard MIDI formats.

FretPet is shareware. Single user licenses can be purchased from the Kagi Store for $30.
