MISA Sequencer – NSC32

Der ist jetzt aber wirklich mal schön gemacht. Der NSC32.
Polyphonie – 32 Steps auf einen Blick.
6 spuren, 768 patterns
Sieht beherrschbar aus, aber leicht “tricky” bei der Anwahl – das sieht man hier im Video..

dies ist ein Controller, aber mit MIDI, wie’s aussieht für DAWs – aus Australien und 1299 Dollars kostet er.

this time it looks really cool, this MIDI Sequencer. it’s polyphonic and it has multiple patterns – as you can see in here how to select and keep control of them and select them again (tracks), it’s 1299 dollars from australia.

Faderfox SC4 Sequencer / Controller + PC4 24-knob Controller

Faderfox are known for controllers of small size reminding of the MFB stuff – now they come back with a controller that can ALSO be used as a sequencer – the result reminds of the Metropolis and Ryk Sequencer for the Roland System 100m and the recent “hack” of the BCR2000 – the Zaquencer that uses the old Behringer to be used as a sequencer – but this time the concept has probability and there are repeats and group edits via 8 knobs with accents and glide .. the video also shows the controller sending CCs to a synth as a part of the sequence…

of course it has skip, and direction commands – it’s more like controlling the structure than setting stages per step according to the Ryk – Sequencer concept..

this is NOT just a controller re-used – it is dedicated to be used as one! – can do a lot more than beatstep – and it has LEDs so it is designed to have an optical reponse and helps to find it quickly

there is also a new controller called the PC4 providing 4×6 = 24 knobs that works with iPads, Computers and USB is made for FAST assignment and – is simply small – all purpose..

B-Step Sequencer Version 2

B-Step is a Sequencer (mentioned here before) that runs on almost deny platform and now it’s going into it’s second round – version 2.


here’s the updates and there is a lot of stuff going in like “roll/flam” in another way – this time called ratcheting (the older word for playing some steps faster) has several new modes that allow song construction and complex polyrhythmic stuff.

the trick is: it is a 4 row sequencer but you can set a number of chords / scales to it and switch them in a sequence, so you have a track for controlling those sales to be switched and therefore allow more / different chord progressions – which is in fact a minimal concept with massive control structures built around it.

since this isn’t very common – check it out – it looks as a simple sequencer but can do whole songs – .. you can control it by 1-2 Launchpads (even on the tablet) and have full control during the performance..


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

For the right groove in your set, we have added an advanced shuffle mode. Now you can 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.

Step Sequencer Chord Editor

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? Sure! 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.

Scales? We have that covered also. You can fill the chords randomly with notes from scales.

And that’s only the major things! Just try it out. Download your free trial version.

Behringer BCR2000 hack: sequencer – > Zaquencer

ZAQ Audio hacked the Behringer BCR2000 which is a super-ordinary controller that is available for about 130€ with 4 lines of 8 endless encoders and 2 rows of 8 buttons – so they turned it into a 32-step sequencer. -> the Zaquencer. 70€ – makes it a XXX€-Sequencer!

basic info – incl. chords:

and here’s some jam using a micro modular and TR505:

the last genoQs Octopus Sequencer made by it’s master

Marcel of the former GenoQs Sequencer company took his soldering iron to make one last Octopus Sequencer and posted it on Ebay for auction – as you know I rarely post things that are just for sale there but since this sort of the last chances to get one incl help in case of things not working in the future you still get help from Marcel and to mark the sell official – so here we go for 1480€ plus transport (20€).
26.June: update: it’s now at 1640€ – climbing – original price was 2k€..

UPDATE: it went for 2310€ out of the doors of Stuttgart.
arcel of genoss  machines(die es nach wie vor nicht mehr gibt) bietet nun einen neu gebauten Octopus an – der als letztes Modell gebaut wurde. Ja, dieses Angebot ist somit echt und wirklich die letzte Möglichkeit mit Service einen zu bekommen.

UPDATE: bei 2310€ endete das Teil – für die Statistiker.

Graphically aided CV Controlled Voltage Sequencer – MiniGorille (Module)


CV Minigorille is a graphical sequencer with a nice little OLED display but controlled by voltages – and that works like this:

so it is about setting your x and y controls and sort of “modulate” yourself through basic and more complex shapes or just see the sequencer as a classic step sequencer on screen.
he Link will only lead you to the designer but no information so far.

GRP Sequencer R24 – final version

The GRP Sequencer which is basically an advanced version of the A4 / A8 allows jumps and complex forms of running through the sequence – via Facebook.


Der GRP R24 Sequencer aus den großen GRP Synthesizern A4 und A8 is nun ein echtes Gerät – mehr dazu auch hier im Forum: GRP R24 Analog Step Sequencer

I’d really like to be there with Mr.Cosimi demoing the sequencer – see the size?
