Procession and Chordian are locked to the Scales you draw or select so that Randomization is always useful? Stepper is very different and cannot be locked to a scale because it uses Pre-defined Chord Shapes, the 1st 2 are about Randomizing freely, Stepper is about building Chord Progressions which is not an easy thing to randomize. if it had a Scale on the back of that it would completely defeat it's purpose as it wouldn't be sequencing chords any more, besides which that is what the other 2 do
Stepper is definitely a sequencer to work with to get useful results, much more a tool than a sonic explorer. But you can switch off the Chord randomization and randomize everything else with good results but i think the chords need to set using your ears. I purposely left out Tune from the global Randomizer as that brings even more unmusical chaos, but you can randomize it from it's own row Randomizer.
@tatanka I haven't released it to the world yet just to the mailing list, I will most likely get the PR done tomorrow but today I'm taking it easier and just responding to emails etc. It' been an intense few days getting this ready.
I'm not sure there would be much value in chaining these sequencers seeing as the all only respond to a single note at a time, but I'd love to see how people are using them
The main restriction for doing more interesting stuff in Kontakt is that I have no control over Note Off which initially made my heart sink because absolute control over this opens up many more possibilities. As it stands you have to precalculate all Note times in advance and use the lengths to prevent premature note cutoffs in advance. That's why the maximum length of a note can't run over another step, otherwise overlapping notes of the same pitch would be cutoff from the first note Off message. I'm sure note Off used to work, there is a function for it but it doesn't do anything unfortunately. Once I get going with JUCE it will be much better for these kind of Sequencers, it's amazing that Kontakt has this ability at all really which is well beyond what you would expect from a sample player
yes Bitwig is fantastic, it's a very liberating environment. I only upgraded to v2 a few months ago and still haven't had enough time to fully explore it even though I have it open all day whilst working on the scripts! I have had plenty of Modular fun here and there though.
