Check this out:

http://www.klangmanipulation.de/indexvst.html

If you like ClockWOrK and TO-Stepper youre gonna love this one because it has a lot more features.

To get a good idea of what it can do, just watch the video.

Pay special attention to the part that starts at 14:00, where he introduces the PATCH-O-MATOR.

So far i havent seen anything better for free...

This looks cool, thanks for the heads-up.

I find the probability stuff unfulfilling. In the course of running some iterations it does some cool changes and ones I don't like. After trying such stuff out I found I preferred to craft stuff by hand.

I quite like the song mode in Geist...

Could these be a starting point?

Looks like a good starting point, yes!

How I envision it is like this. Bear with me because I'm using paint and a mouse :hihi:

I think that expresses the basic idea... It's like a stepsequencer where each row of information has it's own ranges and playmode. It should be easy to drop any value into any gridspace, change playmodes, set all tracks to start/end at a certain step, edit everything, and there'd be every editing feature possible on the raw data, such as shifting it left/right.

Ideally there should be 16 or 32 steps, but I didn't draw them ;) And there would be also lanes for CC modulation, and a smoothing and scaling parameter for each CC lane. There could also be columns for standard pitchbend gestures as well!

Perhaps each row could also have it's own clock divider? That might have it's own problems, though...

Regarding Mute and Skip, these are at the top to symbolize that they would be the first thing the program checks. Basically if it lands on a lit Skip step, it jumps immediately to the next state, so it's basically like folding that part of time out of existence ;). Obviously then the program would look at the mute status and if that was lit, it would do a rest, etc...

hmm,
do you have FL Sendy?
We could work on this in FLSM,
clocked by Usine/FL.
The project could be wrapped as a VST by Usine,
when it is finished.
I can't see a clock-divider per line as being too difficult 8D
Sounds like a cool project.

I'm afraid I don't, and I don't know what use I'd be beyond an ideas and testing person, since I can't code or anything. I've had a few more ideas, such as being able to apply transforms to the note data, and being able to force the output to a set of keys perhaps via a midi channel or something.

I spend a long time 'inflecting' riffs so that they don't clash in keychanges, and I think anything that can speed this up, is a great tool :)

A couple interesting (IMO) sequencers, that have slipped under the radar, perhaps:

www.raxntrax.com ! It's a free vst-host based on analog style sequencers but with a lot more functionality.

Looks very good, requires a donation, but there seems to be pay what you want. I'll give it run this week. :tu:

Ah! I just checked your sig. and web info, I assume, you are the dev? This looks really nice, I'll check it and "become a member" soon, thanks :)

EDIT: Oops! I'm a jackass :oops: I just got it! Thanks :D

Rax'n'Trax is brilliant! Even better than the step sequencers in the Emu Command Station. It took me a couple of days to figure out the basic functionality but it was worth the effort. You have to watch the YouTube videos to understand it. I sent a nice donation.

And if you are serious about complex step sequencing, Numerology is unbeatable!
