This VCV rack plugin is designed to sequence the analog drums modules but can be used to trig any other drum module, envelope, ...
The design of the drum sequencer is inspired by the TRX0X and modular drum sequencers that offer many particular features such as :
-fast editing features (copy pattern, paste pattern, clear pattern and clear instruments),
-CV controllable pattern and fill selection,
-fill triggering input (gate or trig),
-Tap input and tap button for real time recording/writing.
-32 step encoders (and leds) that make long sequences writing easier.
-Seperate stop- start-reset inputs for easy synchronisation (example given in the user manual)
-A synchronised cv sequencer (same sequence independent from drum patterns) useful to modulate the drum modules CV inputs.
The drum song arranger alow to write a sequence of drum patterns (that can be called pattern chain). This sequence is made of 8 steps but each step can be repeat 1 to 4 times (then can repeat 1 to 4 time the drum pattern). For each of this step (of the drum arranger) you can trig a specific fill on a specific step (of the drum sequencer).
In order to be synchronised with the drum sequencer we need to receive the last step ouputs of this and the external clock it is synchronised on.
To create very long "songs" it is possible to chain many drum song arrangers. That said, this module is a bit unusual, look at the owner manual before unsing it is very recomended, especilly for this feature.
- A dual frequency divider (2, 4, 8 and 2, 3, 4)
- An advanced and complete drum sequencer.
- A chainable song arranger that allow to chain the drum patterns.
Notice that between the first version (0.4) and V0.5 the colors have changed because of the Roland guidelines about their intelectual properties about the TR808.
