Instrument Sequencer


sample based rudimental-drummer
fractals of drumgrooves can be patched together to never ending beat sessions.

pattern sequencer and song sequencer
make huge arrangements possible.

meant to play along r e c h o r d e r
or any other generative instrument!

still improving, expect further updates!


-now starts with the first note
-improved shuffle algorithm
-added humanize algorithm
-sample prefer algorithm makes sure that snare
and kick do not sound at the same time
-many bugfixes
-send effect
-added crash cymbal sequencer (plus "no hat" algorithm)
-added intelligent quantized locators
-added cpu saving features
-added output management
-improved humanize
-improved shuffle
-improved send effect
-new samples

hey dude. i want to say thank you very much for this instrument. basically, this has made me delete all of the Boss DR Rhythm machines that i have been watching on ebay. this is simple and VERY effective. only thing i wish it had is triplets. nevertheless, great stuff. the song seq section took me a little bit to figure out, since the values increase from top to bottom, opposite of the sequencer table to the left.

hi! sounds great, though i would love to use it un-sequenced, i.e. to be able to play the different sounds by midi keyboard. is that possible? thanks!

hi norman, the high cpu load is due to the internal compressor, 5 eq´s and send effect, also the single out routing needs some cpu. On my 2ghz pc it takes 18%. Disable the compressor display by clicking into it to save cpu, when you disable the send effect you will also save cpu.

Top marks for the sequencer, but the synth section is an unnecessary CPU hog. 5 samplers and it uses 50% CPU on my powerbook. Nice work but I think you should spend more time optimising for CPU usage.

alive and kicking.......HOWEVER, the one annoying thing about this genius "drumbox" is that when you stop and then does not play the first beat. please programchild fix is really annoying not to hear the kick at the start.
