[Share] Floating Step Sequencer (Version 4)

Post by jon_moore » Sun Nov 15, 2009 1:30 am

Rebuilt the step sequencer so that it appears in a floating window (provides a less constricted user experience). You can easily resize the window by opening the 'Floating Step Sequencer' patcher and adjusting to suit. The dimensions of the floating window are controlled by the 'thispatcher' element.

Ensure you place this patch in the same folder as the existing step sequencer as it has to reference the same external JS script to function (provides the algorithm for the swing function).

I'm updating this on a daily basis and the following download link will always be the latest (Reading through the thread you can see the modifications made with each iteration)

Added new functionality: You're now able to select the number of steps in each sequence (1-64).

As before place in the same folder as the standard step sequencer.

wow, speechless. thanks so much, I'm glad to see the floating window capability in M4L.

does this mean you can make any device float like a VST ?

Yes, any device you create can function as a floating window so your not limited by the real estate of the device area.

Version 3 is now ready for download.

I've now added the capability to select a CC value such as Mod Wheel, Pitch Bend etc - hacked the code from Nico's sequencer, cheers mate ;)

See first post for latest download link

Thanx, Jon. When I download your updated version, I get the 'standard' step sequencer.
Could it be that you uploaded the wrong file, or am I doing something totally wrong ?

Best,
Bert

Ha! It took me a while to hack all the names into the inspector. I wish it would be possible to add menu items to live.menu as easily as in the umenu object.

Just uploaded version 4 which now has the ability to copy and paste sequences (great for when you want chain sequence iterations together and fire each sequence off via midi).

Just chiming in to say I was wondering about floating windows, and thanks for sharing your work! This is excellent!

Hey Jon,

Thanx, it gets better with every update!

Two questions:
Although I placed yr seq in the same folder as the 'original' I can't get the swing function to work. What do I do wrong ?

The copy/paste function; how is it supposed to work ? I have no succes by just selecting
the numbers in the two pulldownlists.
EDIT: forget the second question, sorry: it works, excellent!

Can you shine some light on this please :-) ?
Thnx again,
Best,
Bert

There might be a problem with your installation because the swing function looks for the same external JavaScript file as the bundled sequencer device. As for the copy / paste function, you click on the number of the source sequence you wish to copy and then click on the number of the destination sequence you wish to paste into. The device has been downloaded approx 200 times (version 4) and your the first to mention a problem. I'll look into it though and see if there are any gremlins in the patch (it's been tested across both Mac & PC).
