The v1.0 sequencers are all fixed step, so whilst you can record polyphonic notes, the notes will be quantized. There are workarounds though, and nothing stopping you building your own unstepped polyphonic sequencer: I have a MIDI looper in lua script which basically does this.

An unquantized sequencer module - basically just a traditional piano roll, although with some nice modulation tricks - will be in v1.1 or v1.2, depending on whether this or other features get the most requests.

Thanks. It would be cool if you could record and change steps in micro timing at some point also micro pitch shift. Maybe a piano roll is better for polyphonic, but Ive never really liked them :) If I remember right the Elektron Analog Four had a knob to change a steps start position, its just much nicer than dragging around a note imho.

Is it possible to change the step values while the sequencer is running by some kind of modulation or other sequencers like you can do with the ParamModulation within Numerology?
Are there Shift register modules with 16 steps?

This is certainly all possible via wiring and scripting, from everything we've been told before.

Whether it can be neatly wrapped up into a single 'module' in version 1.0 without any intervention from Colin, is a question only he can answer.

If your plugin is a C++ creation, please don't say so.
If it is, pop round Marcos, he has just bought you a Mac to port it.

I'm actually confident we'll see !Epoch pretty soon.

Whilst it would have been nice for the Christmas break and I'm back to work on Monday for a most 'interesting' few months of corporate programming fun, I'm ready for the creative break that !Epoch will bring to my free time.

This year will be fantastic.

Edit: And with respect to the mention of DNF, I'm pretty much done with gaming - I've wasted enough of my life down that rabbit hole and whilst I'll toy with a few of the big-name titles this year, I'm focusing my attention on productivity and meaningful things instead.

Yes, you can change the steps in various ways during playback.

And yes again, there are shift register - macros, not modules - so you can easily build a 16-step one.

I've already spent all my savings (twice) on other gear/software stuff. I just want it released lol. Preferably with OSC support, but it can wait :) And how the plugin will be named anyway? :)

colin has refused to answer that question ever since. I'm still curious to see the name revealed (after all I threw in a proposal), but I'm afraid we will have to wait until release (which might possibly happen, sooner or later or any other time in a near or distant future, or a parallel universe) ;)
