-A MIDI sequencer based on probabilistic finite-state automata.
+Machina is a MIDI sequencer based on Finite State Automata.
+A machine can be constructed manually from the user interface, recorded from
+MIDI input (free-form or step), or loaded from a MIDI file. The probability of
+arcs can be manipulated to produce a machine that produces structured but
+constantly changing output. Thus, Machina can be used as a generative recording
+tool that plays back patterns similar to, but not identical to, the original
