DESCRIPTION

boxStep is a QWERTY/MIDI controlled version of the ensemble i use with my monome 40h controller for live performance. it a nutshell, it is a simple stepsequencer (no velocity!) controlling a groove-box-styled sampler, which has alot of sound-mangling features, like filtering, looping, reversing, individual-voice graindelay, etc.

using the QWERTY keys shown on the box, or MIDI notes 48+, you can change the playback "scenes" of both the sampler and the sequencer independantly. the scenes are similar to that used y the R4 ensemble go-box. yes, i am revolting against snapshots. i like tables better! maybe i was dropped on my head as a child! i dont know, but thats how i like it, much faster and more fun for live performance as well.

most controls are labelled. the main thing to remember, is that samples should start mapping at key 0, and that the highest key a sample is mapped to should be set as the value of the numeric control, for proper use of the sample select control. also, for the loop/reverse controls to work the samples loaded must have looping turned on.

enjoy, and send any questions or comments to kid_sputnik over at yahoo dotcom.

thanks!

sakes alive this is a spicy number. very flexible too, useful for a lot of different stuff; so many combinations are there already without even doing table edits.

Very Nice... Was gonna post a question in the forums bout how Poly event tables work, but think this has just answered that. This is right up my alley, and has given a few more ideas. Very RAD, Thank you!

Think the filename needs renaming, its reading as "boxstep_1..zip" I think the double .. can cause problems
