The Protoclidean Sequencer 1.01

Hi there,
You can find the Protoclidean Sequencer here: ... -sequencer

You can see the video here

The Protoclidean Sequencer is based on Euclidan algorithm.
This is one of the oldest mathematical algorithm ever.
It offers a very simple way to distribute the most evenly possible a particular number of objects inside a particular number of slots.

The Protoclidean implements this algorithm to place a particular number of notes into a particular number of slots.
That way, you can easily create sequences using odd or even number of steps without the need of creating a lot of clips with different size in your liveset, you can also play live with it, using the banks storage/load feature.

It can easily used to design rhythmic patterns, but for melodic purposes too.
Check the video to better understand how it works.

Here are some features:
- 8 independant channels
- step number + number of notes + offset + pitch + velocity for each channels
- accurate synchro to Live transport
- scaler helper to choose a scale across each channel
- GM Drum-map mode with the 8 first standard MIDI Drum map notes accross channels
- notes randomizer with min/max limits
- MIDI Thru (the sequencer let all notes from your clips to go to the next devices)
- all parameters are auto mappable to any control surfaces compatible with Live
- built-in help

Here are some tracks made with it and the other tools: ... -our-tools

I hope you'll like it.

is there a way to send the channels out to different midi tracks? one protoclidean controlling several vsts. very cool plugin. thanks.
