Instrument Sequencer

DESCRIPTION

this is a special sequencer generating a modulation signal. most of my synths and samplers have a cv-input where you can connect this one.
the basic concept is similar to the performer-modulation in N.I.'s Massive. you can select 16 different curves which are written into the 16 sequencer steps. you can scale each sequencer step and also adjust the overall level of the modulation signal.
the instrument corresponds to incoming midi note, gate and control messages. you can select one of eigth patterns using midi note C2 - G2. The sequence restarts at incoming midi gate signals or at the snc-input if "gate sync" is activatetd. last but not least the amount knob and the invert-button correspond to midi control # 1 and 2.
the mp3 file is played by my nord synthesizer with a plasma sequencer for gate and pitch and a MS16 modulating osc 1 fm amount and filter 1 frequency.

1st update: a half transparent bar shows the current readout position

O frabjous day! So glad to find this, thank you! I dropped in an IC Send and LOVE the extra controls this adds to that:)

This is excellent, exactly what i needed. But can you please tell me how to turn off the pattern select by midi note?

I'm working on turning this into a 32 step performer with 128 patterns selectable by a knob, I've pretty much got it working except for the multi display that shows current position, it passes through once and then disapears for the second pass through and then re appears on the third pass through, it is only visible on every other pass, any suggestions?

i think this is fantastic - i've been looking for something like this for a while ... could you include a little more in the way how to use it ...i've managed to get it to modulate a filer in my synth ..but how to control it from the clock so it starts and stops with the sequencer etc would be great ... but overall - top marks - cheers

Hello sorry I'm quite new to Reaktor how would I get this to simply effect the pitch or the cutoff of a filter? I'm not sure how I would go about routing this into a synth thanks

hi stephan, could you explain how can i trigger my Nord synth by your sequencer? i don't see any midi out coming from the sequencer...

thanks.. really appreciate it.. this .ens is just too good.. ----- could you tell me what feeds the event table that generates the step shapes? I'm quite new to event tables and trying to understand how/what/where in this .ens.. thnx..

@ marco: i think a global envelope and the direction control are easy to implement. I'll have a look at it next week.

some other thoughts.. - separate CC output per step - global depth envelope slope for all steps - sequencer direction (FW/BW/FWBW, Random etc) - shuffle

just what I needed.. great ens.. would it be possible to have a separate CC output for each step?

Sandy has a point about the always active panel element. i used a numeric readout. whatever, i am loving this :-)

Splendid work as always, and the new step indicator is a nice addition. I have a few suggestions--rather than dividing the clock output sent to the multi display by 16, divide it by the output of the event table in the clock macro. That way, when the number of steps is reduced, the multi display will indicate the correct step rather than running faster and faster through all 16. Secondly, it would be nice to connect an invisible, always-active panel element (I used a lamp) before the output so the sequence can be altered without having to connect the output to another ensemble first. Cheers!

simple, useful and deep. just the way i like em!

@phil: i wanted to add a multi display which shows the current step, but i still have some problems with that. i'm working on that, it will be included in the next update.

wow, great idea!... it would be nice to see which step is being sent out, but i still have to give this a 10.
