Sequencomat V3.3

This entry was posted on Mar 26 2011

Hey, I made a new substantial update: Sequencomat V3.3

I got no video yet, but updated the manual with all screenshots:
http://www.tonvibration.de/SequencomatV3.html

Here is an overview about the new functions:

SCALES:
- till V3.2 the notes followed a static chromatic scale. Now you can define your scale on the maxpatch. You enter a keynote and the halftone steps based on that. There are shortcuts for chromatic, major and minor scale, but you can enter any halftone row you prefer! Even halftone steps above 12 (across one octave) will work.
- Octaves are now defined the same way
- The grid on the Lemurs MultiSliders will follow the number of notes/octaves you have defined. The script is triggered by the trackchoice button, so rechoice once before you get any changes.
- notes and octaves are labled depending on your scales/octaves
- The scales/octaves are splitted between track 1-4 and 5-8, so you can define them independent (usefull if combining a drumrack (chromatic) and melodic parts (e.g. minor))
- The transpose-slider on the roll container follows track 1-4
- scales and octaves are saved within a set

TRUE TRANSPOSE:
- till V3.2 transposing of notes and octaves was done on the Lemur, graphic based.
- now transposing is done in max (but still using the same pads on the same position)
- transposing follows your scales
- transposing works across octaves
- you can now transpose more than one track at once (multiple editing) and all will follow their notes (but you will get no visual feedback as always in multiple editing mode)

RANDOM-STEP-VALUE-SWITCHES:
- note and octave now got also that random switches you know from other functions in V3.2
- tip: while defining a special halftonestep more than one time in your scale, you can control the propability of that note in random mode
- delay now also got random switches. That means you can humanize your groove (or even parts of it)

NEW TEMPI:
- 2 new slow tempi are available: 1 and 1/2 step per bar (meaning 1 or 2 bars each step)
- they are nice for ambient settings, but more interesting for slow changes in MidiCC or in triggering other events (like effect on/off) by midinotes)

POSITION WHEEL:
- you can the songposition with a rotary encoder in the transport section
- this works during playback (will catch next quater note) or if stopped
- in rewire mode your daw will follow that position
- in midi master / slave mode only the position of Sequencomat will change
- this function is usefull on polyrhythmic patterns

AUTOSAVE:
- with “autosave” on all changes are saved automatically to the current pattern before jumping to a new pattern
- this will delay the patternjump a few milliseconds
- in combination with “autopatternchain” you can live edit up to 160steps long patterns!

NEW EXCLUDE FUNCTIONS:
- beneath single track also range functions for velocity, length, cc, delay and propability can now be excluded from loading
- this becomes handy, if you want to make a fade in of e.g. velocity on one or more tracks while a pattern-chain is running. Without that the range will always jump with the pattern to its saved values…

COMMON:
- unfortunately, sets of V3.2 and 3.3 are not compatible – paste V3.3 into a new folder!
- maxpatch now about 5.5 MB…. (wuff, again a big update!)
- pattern contains now 2000 values (250 each track, btw: limit of max “coll” object is 256)
- Lemurtamplate now only 41% because I managed to cut some functions and bring them into max instead (before the Lemurtemplate was 47%, and on V3.2 42%)
- still combineable with MU or other nice tools on your Lemur.
- still very accurate timing as shown in a new screenshot in the manual

Finally, V3.3 puts it to a max. It brings the idea of V3.2 with random step switches to all functions, adds free defineable scales and octaves and some other usefull stuff. At the moment I am not planning to do any further updates.

All users will get that free update soon (I just send a mail)
