Delptronics Trigger Sequencer

When creating any type of music making device that has many options and functions to choose from, creating a way to navigate through everything clearly is key to making a successful unit.  If one were to simply lay out and endless row of options to choose from, you would have very hard time trying to find exactly what you need everything, even though it’s right in front of your face.  Modern electronic units have benefitted from digital displays and onboard circuitry that sidesteps the need to have a knob and button for everything possible.  Take the Kaoss Pad 3 for example; it has over 100 different settings that can be selected using basically one knob.

But can this approach also work for devices that don’t use digital readouts and clever circuitry?  Yes it can.  The Delptronics Trigger Sequencer was shown off at NAMM 2013, and was given praise for its …

Grove Audio Intros 16 Step Modular Sequencer

Quite frankly, I grow tired of seeing countless apps being created for the Android or iOS that do the same thing as the next.  It seems like an open source code is being tossed around the internet, with the only real innovation being the interface or the next app to be released.  If you search the app store for sampler, sequencer, or drum machine you will find more apps that you know what to do with.  How could you possible ever know which is the right one for you?

Koushion Step Sequencer Meets Moog, Ableton, And More

If you’ve got a room full of complicated synthesizer, then you’ve probably experiment with different ways to chain everything together.  There are several ways to patch and port devices to each other, but it can be complicated and difficult to manage just what equipment takes precedent over another other.  If you have an Ipad, things may have just gotten easier.

Kudzucreative has been working with an app known as Koushion, which acts as a step sequencer, and helps him tie everything together.  He uses a variety of high end synthesizers like the Akai MPK 49 and an iRig connection to bring all of his physical elements together.…

Turn Your LaunchPad Into A Step Sequencer With Lauflicht

Novation Launchpad users now have more options to map their midi controller.  Instead of relying on a typical digital audio workstation to start and stop their triggered samples, Lauflicht was designed as a step sequencer program that turns the Launchpad into a hardware based sequencer, without the need for a mouse.  Samples are stored in banks and can be triggered in 8, 16, or 32 steps.…
