Seqmod

A step sequencer designed with Push 3 Standalone use in mind.

  • Seqmod circles through eight pitches defined by 4 dials.
    The four dials [PITCH 1 5], [PITCH 2 6], [PITCH 3 7], and [PITCH 4 8] each define two pitches relative to the pitch of ROOT.
    Pitches 5, 6, 7, 8 are the inverse of pitches 1, 2, 3, 4 with the pitch set by ROOT as centre.
  • Example:
    ROOT: C3
    [PITCH 1 5]: +5st
    [PITCH 2 6]: +0st
    [PITCH 3 7]: -1st
    [PITCH 4 8]: -12st
    -> STEP 1: C3+5st = F3, Step 5:C3-5st = G2
    -> STEP 2: C3+0st = C3, Step 6:C3-0st = C3
    -> STEP 3: C3-1st = B2, Step 7:C3+1st = C#3
    -> STEP 4: C3-12st = Cs, Step 8:C3+12st = C4



    Seqmod is driven by notes sent from a Clip or played on a keyboard. Each Note On will move the sequence one step further (defined by the MODE dial). Incoming Note Offs and Pitches are ignored. Drop any clip on the same track. Fire the Clip. SeqMod should run accordingly.

  • Using any number of notes in a Clip other than eight is an easy and flexible way to immediately create endless variations of shifting sequences.
  • Using Clips with unusual Loop lengths are a quick way to create interesting rhythmic patterns.
  • Feeding the midi notes from another track (e.g. an accompanying Drum Patterns) is another way to get interesting sequences which feel independent and synchronized at the same time.

  • The sequence resets to step ONE when you stop the Live set (More reset options are in development).

  • The device is originally inspired by the Eurorack module Modseq by dinsync. This video explains how the four dials PITCH 1 5/2 6/3 7/4 8 work:

  • MODE
    Directions in which the set pitches are turned into notes. Currently available:
    FWD – Forward
    BCK – Backward
    F+B – Forward and Backward
    ZIGZAG – Steps 1 > 5 > 2 > 6 > 3 > 7 > 4 > 8
    RANDOM – Random
  • LENGTH
    Note duration between 1-1000ms
  • DELAY
    Delay between incoming Trigger Note On and Note On generated by Seqmod
  • ROOT
    Defines a central midi pitch used by PITCH 1 5, PITCH 2 6, PITCH 3 7, PITCH 4 8 to create 8 pitches
  • VELOCITY
    Changes notes velocity
  • PITCH 1 5, PITCH 2 6, PITCH 3 7, PITCH 4 8
    Defines pitch offsets relative to ROOT

  • This v1 is an MVP. There is a long list of features to be added step by step in updates.


LATEST VERSION

A collection of midi clips to drive Seqmod.

RELEASE NOTES

SeqMod 1b21 240218b

  • DELAY: Range reduced to 0-500ms. Exponential scaling added to make it easier to dial in small delays.
