Well, looks like my weekend project has been working on my modular sequencing application for Reaktor. I’ve detailed what this is all about in my previous blog. I’ve updated the sequencer and added some detailed comments on all the GUI elements to help people get up to speed with using it.
I’ve included a handful of useful modules. These modules are meant to be added and removed at your convenience to suit whatever purpose. Ideally, you could create multiple instruments holding these sequencer modules, and have them sent to various different devices, and store the different instruments in different Reaktor panelsets.
I’ve created a quick demo track to show some of the things the current sequencer modules can do, and this is only a small fraction of the possibilities. This track is Reaktor sending midi to my G2 modular on two different midi channels.
All modules have their own independent pattern lengths and step speeds. Included modules are a 6 channel drum sequencer, 3 kinds of gate sequencers, a “control” sequencer, a numeric sequencer, an LFO module for triggering sequences, a tempo modulation LFO, and a scale quantizer for making melodies with.
I plan on making more modules: Some random trigger modules, ratio sequencers, and so on, as well as MIDI automation stuff for sending CC messages, program changes, and also a snapshot sequencer for automatically changing the reaktor snapshots while the sequence is running.
anyway, let me know what you think, and I am especially interested in other people trying their hand at making some of their own sequencer modules too .
