I'm not too keen on sequencers, but this one is nice - very nice!

Yes, these table-seqs. However on the other hand it seems that they are not really well working with snapshots...? Let me do some more "research" for this:) Regarding your clicks. I don't see your patches, so I cannot really say where they are from. Maybe the LFO is on pulse, could be a reason, or the Env has too short Attack or Decay or no Release... Maybe the best if you switch off both modulators on the OSCs and mix it to one OSC only in order to search the click source step-by-step. I have built in some smoothers, but with so many modulators you can never avoid it 100% on such an instrument and I am not sure, if it is really needed, as these also can contribute as rhythmic elements to the generated loops.

Great ensemble! I downloaded it last week and have made some pretty cool little patches with it. I, too, would like to see Table based sequencers implemented. Perhaps similar to the ones in the SamplerPak ensembles. The only problem I'm having is that most the patches I make tend to have clicks in them but all yours do not. Any advice on avoiding this? I need more practice!

Really well crafted. Some great squelchy sequences and oddness from this'un.

I like the presentation, but I don't think it is quite as original as some others think. Also I agree a table would be better for the sequencer section. I do like the sound even so, very balanced and not too wierd.

Oh, there are SO many cool, elegant sequencers...and several great threads recently and currently regarding tables in the forums. But I'd suggest you start by looking at the sequencer in James Walker-Hall's wonderful 3X. It's a model of efficient useability and depth.

hey guys, thanks for all the compliments. I also like it quite a lot:) Regarding the crash in LAP 6.2.1. - I cannot reproduce any problems on my LAG 6.0.1. Regarding the Sequencer Upgrade: you are right. I was thinking bout the same, also dedicated ones for filter and wave modulation. It's just I didn't spend time on understanding those table stuff yet. Guess I'll have to though:( Anyone got a suggestion which sequencer would be best to borrow from a different ensemble?

Very cool ensemble, thank you, but it keeps crashing Logic 6.2.1 when I call it up as an AudioUnit. I don't have this problem with other ensembles. It does hold up fine as stand-alone. I'm on OS X 10.2.6

Suggestion...make the sequencer a set of tables for easier, more visual alteration. Boy, does this thing SOUND great; thanks again!
