Euclidean "Snapshots-to-Keys" Mod
Euclidean Sequencer to play on MIDI Keyboard
Mod of the "euclidean seq demo" by benjamin kilchhofer. This single Euclidean Sequencer lets you switch between snapshots by playing the keys on your MIDI keyboard/controller. I wanted a setup, which allows me to "play" and switch between my favourite polyrhythms in a fast and intuitive way just by pressing the keys on my keyboard.
Along with the Ensemble, I've also attached an Ableton Live Session with the Euclidean Sequencer routed to an Ableton Live track containing a simple Hi-Hat sample. Make sure to select the "Save Snaps" Instrument (See Screenshot) in the Ensemble's drop-down menu to access and view the Snapshots-to-Keys Preset Bank (You'll see 13 Snapshots with names ranging from C-2 to C-3). On your MIDI keyboard, play C-2 to trigger Snapshot 1, C#-2 to trigger Snapshot 2 and so on…
This is the Ensemble I demoed at the NI Sessions for Reaktor on the 27th of October 2015. Link to Video: https://youtu.be/4ucwu0ZPhi8?t=1h15m24s

- Fixed an event order problem in the Sequencer View/Display, which is present in ALL other versions of this Sequencer in the User Library.
- Previously under certain circumstances, the settings of the Steps, Fill and Shift parameters would display the wrong number of filled squares.
- The output of the Sequencer was never affected by this (only the view) but it was confusing to hear and see two different things so now it's been fixed.
- Thanks to Dietrich Pank and Daniel Ramm from the Reaktor Team for their help in analysing and fixing this issue.
