Monoplugs releases B-Step Sequencer v2.0 - incl. Audio Unit, Android & Raspberry Pi versions

Monoplugs has released version 2.0 of B-Step Sequencer, which also sees the release of a Mac OS X Audio Unit plug-in and standalone versions for Android and Raspberry Pi.

Monoplugs kept the B-Step 1 base and built a lot useful stuff on top of that.

A new Advanced Shuffle Mode allows you to add the shuffle modifications to every second 16th, 8th or 4th. You can modify the timing, velocity and duration of the notes in the shuffle grid.

To fill the pattern, you can use the Sequencer Ratcheting features (Step Repeats). This is ideal when you want to create drum rolls, arpeggios or experimental stuff.

Different measurements: You can reduce the pattern length down to 1/16th or increase the length by adding some Non-Linear Playback features.

Polyphony: control up to 4 synthesizers independently with one instance of B-Step. Just split it into 4 sequence groups and share the things you like between.

When you need speed you can use the Multidrag feature which allows you to copy a slider or button state to all others on the fly.

Also, you no longer have to remember the slider states — now just click it and the value will pop up.

Scales: You can fill the chords randomly with notes from scales.

Control and Program Changes can be sent for each step.
