Hi,UPDATE : this m4l device has now its own page on my website with a download link - http://www.hpsounds.com/octane-step-sequencer/
Here is a small teaser of a project I'm working since several weeks now.
This project is in fact a very old personal project that I've started to develop in Max before Live or MaxForLive, and even VST exist ... But I've got recent influences from my Sequentix P3 and Cirklon sequencer
is a MaxForLive MIDI step sequencer designed with a modular point of view. Each step is divided in 8 main parameters families:
: the note event is played or not, with a probability parameter for each step;
: the note event is repeated or not, with micro-step edit;
: set the value in semitone of the note, with note randomizing;
: set the octave value of the played note, with octave randomizing;
: set the velocity of the played note, with velocity randomizing;
: set the duration of the played note;
- CONTROL 1 / CONTROL 2
: set the MIDI controller or remote Ableton Live parameter.
Each of these parameters has a TAB. Each TAB is in fact an independent sequencer with its own start and end step (so each sequencer can have its own lenght
) with different motions (up, down, up&down, random, random w/ no repeat) or can be linked to the GATE TAB.
There is a nearly full remote and tactile control of up-to 8 instances from a custom Liine Lemur layout through OSC protocol, with an automatic iPad Lemur detection. Most of the parameters are MIDI controllable and clips "automatable" too.
Each instance has preset memories, and can be synchronized to Ableton Live or clip triggered which is a much more flexible way to play (a modular step sequencer with the full benefit of clip launching
Here are some screenshots of the iPad Lemur
Here are two video teaser of this MaxForLive device (btw, nothing quite musical here):http://vimeo.com/49719313http://vimeo.com/49782319
In the second video, the sequencer here is triggered by MIDI clips, which can include the step duration (with groove possibility), a reset at step one trigger, an on the fly preset change (via MIDI program change).
In the first part, hps-octane is remote controlled by a custom OSC Lemur template on an iPad. You can see presets and TABs parameters switching without the use of the mouse.
On the second part, we are using MIDI clips to switch presets.
This device might be released as a "contribution freeware" (I don't know how to call it ...). I'm now looking for a couple of serious beta-testers for this device. Feel free to send me a PM.
