An evolution of arp2midi, joins chris kerry’s arpeggiator with contemporary synchronisation functions, adding gate offset (eg. early or late) host position based sync, and lobster (’humanise’)
Includes arpeggiate and phrase modes, 16 step sequencer assignable to gate or arpeggiator step.
BloqSeq switches between four 8-step sequences using an 8-step pattern.
CC Cube gives you eight sets of MIDI cc values and transmits them at tempo. You may send the cc value sets manually, or configure an algorithmic progresson between them.
hypercyclic is an LFO-driven MIDI arpeggiator, gate effect and step sequencer for mangling MIDI input chords.
Two tempo-synced LFOs can be used to modulate various parameters to create interesting rhythmic effects and chord variations. A unique feature is the possiblity to modulate the sequencer step size itself, which is useful for creating glitchy stuttering effects.
The sweetspot for hypercyclic is the narrow border between chaos and regularity. Or, in other words, how to induce a certain pleasant randomness, yet forcing everything to align again on the bar or beat boundaries.
The product is further complemented by a groove function for playing slightly off the beat. The groove parameters can also be modulated over time by the LFOs, adding to the rhythmic variation.
Step Machine is midi loop sequencer, in the style of a classic analog step sequencer.
To use it your host must support midi output from vst plugins.
As the host plays, you will see the sequencer run through its loop. Pitch, octave, gate, slide and velocity can all be controlled for each step. Along with this there are two assignable midi CC sequencers.
You will also find a complex randomise function and a force-to-scale function (which can be transposed via incoming midi).
DrumSeq was made to provide a simple grid based drum pattern sequencer. Still handy for controlling drum sampler VSTis like Computer Music’s SR202.

Pedal trigger is a step sequencer driven by a MIDI sustain pedal. It is intended as a performance accompaniment tool (for when us guitarists just dont have any hands free!) and not for composition and production.
Used at its simplest, it can output chords to a VSTi synth - each one triggered by pressing on the pedal. In addition, it can be used as a meta step-sequencer to output MIDI notes that will trigger patterns in a more standard step sequencer
AZ Audio has released Monobar, a free VSTi MIDI step sequencer. Each pattern is composed of 4 sub sequences: pitch, note-on/velocity, note-off and 5 user-defined CC.
Monobar functions as a VST instrument plug-in on Windows and it is free.

16 notes step sequencer.
You can setup a ’bone pattern’ with steps set at 100% and some alternative steps, let say some fill’in steps, with a setting for its probability to be generated.
This plug is mainly build for drum sampler and drum synth vsti.
Tracking is a method for computer music almost as mature and time-honoured as MIDI. Sometimes better, sometimes not so - always different.
Tracking has to date been the remit of dedicated underground [freeware] software called “Trackers”, particular examples of which (eg. Fast Tracker, Impulse Tracker) have almost acrued cult-status with multi-million strong user-bases. The integration of the Tracker architecture (notably its User Interface*) in sequencer software, will bring the best of both worlds to the composer.
Trigger sequenced MIDI data either by button or CC/Note input. The sequence direction can be chosen between forward/backward/alternating or random. Optionally the output channel(s) can be set.
StepSeq started off for creating simple MIDI cc patterns - Now it can also send midi notes (either a set note or you can use a little piano roll), you can select which patterns are active at any one time and there’s a pattern playlist.
Sequetron is a program with a twist; designed as a live instrument for hands-on use, all played & controlled from where your hands are - the music keyboard. It runs from switch-on with no interaction, and converts the simplest MIDI keyboard into a multi-track recording, playback & looping instrument.
You may be tempted to compare it with conventional sequencers with more powerful editing & audio features, but their MIDI control systems tend to be added as an afterthought; either using dedicated keys, or keys which mimic windows-based operations.
Sequetron takes a fresh approach by first designing a command language around the keys on a music keyboard, then writing a program to interpret it. The computer now takes a back seat, so it really is a different concept…
A front-end instrument for ideas & inspiration… and fun!
