Added +/- buttons to the snapseq’s snapshot selector for remote midi control.+ added flash!

each row consists of :
16 x steps in a pattern
8 x pattern(with basic chaining controls and copy/paste) giving 128 steps a row in total.
Direction,start,legnth,shuffle, clock, and step vairiation.note out,master +/-velocity,Solo,and midi channel out select.
Each step has : On/Off,velocity,No. of hits per step,Spacing control and a +/- velocity for rachetts.
There is a Snap Sequencer that allows you to "chain" snapshots together,to create longer more involved sequences.(Song mode)
Also includes are 9 x CV sequencers and 6 x Lfo's, with 32 mod destinations.
There are a few snapshots and a basic drum map player.I’ve yet to explore it’s possibilities.
This is version 1.00r so there may be a few oddities/nonfunctions, so if you come across any please let me know.

Wow, Numerology made better(, with the snapseq.) Superwellmade! Any way to nudge or delay the trigs would be awesome. That way the grid would be less rigid. (Could be i overlooked this though)

Once again you made huge multifunctional sequencer, all honour to you, dear Michael! TBH, I can't understand all that fuss around Maschine Seq, which looks like a dwarf in comparison with your creature (no offence to nice people from NI, though :))...

Damn... I'm blaggerfasted....This beast is really deep - I'll run out of life for lack of time to master it. Really think you ought to adapt a "freemium" model in which whoever wants manuals and tuts has to pony up some dosh, you really deserve it.

For PolyPlex connections(or any other sound module) high light the polyplex inst. and go to its properties(in edit mode) and under connect tab tick the rds rows you want to use.If you want to use the kit selector also connect to Ens-RDS1 v1.00 which will also allow midi vol(if set up on receiver) and snapshot control. PolyPlex uses layered samples (unto 4 per vioce) so you will encounter note stealing esp. with lots of ratchetts. the first tutorial is up.Any problems just ask
