User Manual - Modular Sequencer

Modular Sequencer - Online User Manual


The Modular Sequencer is a Max for Live Device where you’re able to patch any Output to any Input.

With the integrated Scale Correction and up to four Outputs you can create polyphonic Sequences, 

Make Variations with the independent presets for the Stepsequencers, the Patching and the Routing.


The Modular Sequencer has three Sections:

- The Sequencer Section: with 4 Value Seuquencers, these can send out Values to Pitch, Velocity, Octace & Duration

   And they can also send Out Triggers

   It’s possible to randomize the most parameters, and create generative Sequences. It’s also possible to create 

   repetitiv Sequences, depending on the patching of the Device.

The Modulation & Switching Section: You can route any Output Trigger or On/Off message thru the Modulation Section, where 

   you’re able to invert and also reduce the Messages. And send out Values or Triggers for switching things with a 

  Different bahaviour.

   With the switches you can make a lot of variations when triggering Actions.

 The Routing Section: Here you have four Outputs. Inside each Output you can route every 

   of the four Value Sequencers to the Pitch, Velocity, Octave and Duration. So, you can make some Variations from 

   your Melodie of the same Sequence.

   Also it’s possible to select a Scale and/or learn Notes & Scales with an connected Midikeyboard or from the 

   Chord-O-Mat 3 Device.

Many thanks, have fun!

Value Sequencers: 

these Sequencers can Modulate
Note, Velocity, Ocatve & Duration

logical operators

Trigger Sequencers: 

these Sequencers can Trigger Actions

Midi IN / Trigger on X Bars: 

Here you can send triggers from 

The Midi Input and from the 

Timeline

Outputs: here are four  independent Outputs to combine Sequences.

Every Output has a Router, to assign the Value Sequencers and the 

Scale Correction.

Modulators: here you can
set the behavior of the incoming
Values or Triggers

Switches: here you can
switch from / to different 

destinations

Swing / Pattern Designer

You can connect every Output to every Input,  just by drag & drop or with click on an patchpoint and click on another patchpoint.

If you want to delete a connection, you can do it on the same way or just hold a connected patchpoint and press “X” on your Keyboard

this is an output

this is an input

Outputs can send Triggers and On/Off Values.


The most Inputs can only receive triggers.
Some Inputs, like “up/down”, “Note OUT on/off”,

can handle both.

If receiving a trigger it toggles between on and off.

If receiving On/Off the Button takes over this state.


Every Sequencer has an Output, where you can get an On/Off message from. This is the main source to Trigger Actions, for example Notes

Value Sequencer

Trigger Sequencer

On the Output Section you have these four Inputs, where the Notes are Triggered. If you simply connect an Output from one Trigger Sequencer to an Input, a Note will be played on every ON Message from the Sequencer.

Please Note: if here’s nothing Connected, no Midi Note will be played.

You can assign every Sequencer to every Value of an Output.  

In this example the 

green Sequencer is assigned to the Note Value,

the violet Sequencer is assigned to Velocity

 The yellow to the Octave Value

the blue Sequencer is assigned to the Duration

If no Sequencer is assigned, you can set a fixed Value for that Parameter

Same thing with the logical Operators

Connect a Patchcord to control the Parameter

Here you can stop the Sequencer

This sends an On/Off Value depending on the threshold

threshold

Click here with the mouse

You can use up to four Outputs to make different Sequences or variations of Sequences. Every Output has a routing Panel to assign the 

Value Sequencers to Note, Velocity, Octave and Duration. 

This is the Trigger Input, you must connect a trigger to play a Note

Here you can adjust the Range for the assigned Sequencer

This is the Scale Correction:

Off: every Note is possible

Scale: Only Notes from the selected Scale will be played

Chord: learn Chords played from the Midi Input or from the Chord-O-Mat 3 M4L Device

Output On/Off    /     Patchpoint receives ON/Off and Triggers

Here you can exclude Note, Velocity, Octave or Duration from Randomization in this example only Note, Octave and Duration will be randomized.

The Scale is off, all Notes could be played

Only the Notes from the selected Scale will be played

Learn notes from the midi input. Just activate

“Learn” and play some Notes.
If only learn is selected, it turns off, if you

release the notes.


If “Instant” is selected every time you play 

some Notes will be taken over by the output



you can switch between 

Midi Input = M and

Chord-O-Mat = C


If you select Chord-O-Mat all played chords 

coming from Chord-O-mat 3 will be  

taken over by the scale correction of the output.

If the “confirm input to Scale” is ON, the incomming Midi Notes for the learn function will be mapped to the selected Scale

With the Modulators you are able to Modulate the Trigger Output of the Sequencers

Example 1: Value Out

Example 1: Trigger Out

Example 3: Value Out & Changes

Example 4: Trigger Out & Changes

Example 5: Trigger every X Trigger from Input / Value

Example 6: Trigger every X Trigger from Input / Trigger

With the four Switches you can create time based or also random actions. 

Here is an example for switching between two Outputs:

in this example, the blue Sequencer switches the inverted Trigger from the red Sequencer

every 2nd Bar between Output 3 & 4.

You can also use a Midinote to switch between the Outputs:

In this case Output 1 is open if you released the Key, and Output 2 is open when you hold the key

In this case you go over the Modulater, which sends out a Trigger instead a On/Off mesaage. So, you can Toggle between Output 1 & 2 if you hit the Key

To connect the Modular Sequencer with Chord-O-Mat 3 just click on “link to Scale Devices” in the right top of the Sequencer Device.

Then, if you change the Scale in any of the Devices

The other Device will take over this Scale 

To work with  the same scale in different devices, like Scale-O-Mat 3 or Chord-O-Mat you can activate the “Link to scale” button. If you change the scale or rootnote in one device all other devices will follow.


! Please take care with your automation. It’s not recomended to automate the scale while using the “link to scale” function.
