Consequence

Sequencer by Sugar Bytes

Description


Anything but Inconsequential

Consequence is an arpeggiator, which creates a sequence of notes based on the chords that you provide. Up to 3 instruments can be loaded up, and a vast number of sequencing options can be used to control the way that the plug-in "interprets" your input.

Chord-Sequencer and Arpeggiator

A Simple Concept, with Tons of Scope for Creativity

The chord sequencer is the centrepiece of the creative flow. It’s basically choosing from a palette of 16-chord "snapshots" you define in the Chord memory section at the bottom. There are actually 5 sequencers controlling different aspects of the groove you’re creating. The Modulation section is especially deep, offering separate patterns for each of the synth parts, the filter and the effects.

The sample-based sound library contains all kinds of instruments – from powerful analogue synths to subtle violins, each offering Octave, Pan, Level and Crush controls. You can choose a trigger mode for each instrument independently, so it becomes possible to create more complex sequences by having some instruments triggered as chords and others as arps.

High Level of User Control

A Musician's eye for Detail...

Consequence allows for a detailed definition of all the sonic aspects on a step-by-step basis: "Arp" or "Chord", "Octave" or "Tie". With detailed control over the Arp-direction, you can create melodies with a narrow focus.

Like the rhythm of one preset, but the sound set from another? No problem! No matter how you save your presets, sequences and sounds can be switched out independently to give you other options to expand your presets further.

Sound Collection

Sample Library with 800 MB Content in 15 Categories & 222 Sound Presets

Consequence’s sound library not only includes sounds of the most sought-after synths like the Memorymoog or the OP-1, there’s also plenty of strings and percussion. String passages are crafted fast and impressive. By combining the 3 instruments, it’s easy to create interlaced rhythms with the oddest sounds.

Besides an ADSR, each instrument holds an "Age" and "Crush" control: With these two, say goodbye to “Samples always sound so sterile!”

MIDI Output on VST & AAX

Control External MIDI Devices and Plug-ins

Consequence is not limited to the internal sound library: if you wanna combine with other generators, it is possible to use the MIDI out to trigger hardware or software synths, which opens up a lot of possibilities. There’s also the MIDI Export: just drag and drop to your host or save as a file.

The final stage of the Consequence sound section is the master section which offers tuning features, a fine master compressor and a kickdrum which plays a 4/4 rhythm. The kickdrum is a friendly helper to keep the groove while you are creating sequences, also it can be sent to the compressor exclusively to glue the mix together or let the level drop at each quarter note.

Sounds & Presets

Your inspiration delivery service:

  • The instruments work with a sampling library which has been created exclusively for Consequence

Thesys

Sequencer by Sugar Bytes

Description


The Art of Expression

Step Sequencers are an attractive concept. Machines making music. Who could better awake the genie in the machine than Thesys, the drawing board for step-based music creation? A refined Randomizer is ready, whatever the current situation, to mutate existing material or to bring a new approach on the table.

Generate Pitch

A huge inspiration for performance or production

The sequences can simply be painted, but with the random generator and the mutate-function you can easily generate patterns on the fly. Or record the pitch straight from your MIDI keyboard. The internal synthesiser saves you lengthy wiring sessions so you can start straightaway.

Start by setting the root note. When using the scales, no out-of-key note will slip through your fingers.

Below the pitch lane, you'll see the Velocity (volume) and Gate Sequencer (controlling each note's length). It's in these top three sections that you'll spend the most of your time, programming riffs and arpeggios, then assigning them to patterns.

Performance and Modulation

Detailed Per-Step Control

The fourth step window is home to the Performance Sequencer, which is in fact 5 sequencers in one. Each row offers per-step control over Octave, Pitch Bend (with 20 pre-configured shapes), Chord (for polyphonic sequencing), Note Roll and sequence randomisation of a vast range of other cleverly implemented "humanising" elements to your patterns.

The final lane is the CC modulation section: each step accepts a value of 0 to 127, pumped out to a MIDI CC of your choosing. You can actually run several Modulation sequences simultaneously - up to eight - with all of them controlling different CCs.

Some Action in Real-Time

Some Useful Performance Features

Up to 16 full patterns can be created within a single project. They can can be sequenced within the Pattern Sequencer (bottom right) or triggered via the Keyboard (set to "Pitch"), where the full length of the keyboard is used to transpose the current pattern. Switch to "Performance" and the keyboard is split into 3 zones: Pattern Select, Action Section and a Range for pitch transposing.

The “Action Section” offers 8 effects that can influence the patterns in real time. Choose from Looping, Half-Time, Re-Trigger or a Tempo Break.

Sequencing Magic

The Setting "Individual" Opens up all Sorts of Creative Possibilities

The lanes within a single pattern can be set to operate over different lengths. You could have pitches cycling over 16 steps, while velocity cycles over 15 steps and a modulation lane is used to sweep a synth filter over 29 steps.

The end results can yield some fascinating interactions between these different step-cycle lengths and an almost endless evolution of the pattern. If you thought step sequencers were only capable of creating repetitive fixed patterns, think again!

There's More...

Internal Synth for Idea Sketching on the fly & MIDI Export

Yes, Thesys also comes with its own synthesiser, it is perfectly capable and very useful if you just want to develop a few quick ideas.

In its VST2 and AAX versions, Thesys is fully MIDI-out capable. As an Audio Unit, it can be plugged as a MIDI FX to trigger other AUs. In the 1.5.1 Update, we implemented MIDI Export. Just drag and drop from within Thesys to your host or simply save the file to your desktop. Quick and easy!

No other MIDI sequencer offers you the ease and power of Thesys. It is 100% MIDI compliant - the ultimate MIDI sequencing solution. Use Thesys on your iPad to control multiple apps or external hard- and software! Send melodies, controller data and program changes. Save patterns to a MIDI file.

Nest

Sequencer by Sugar Bytes



Images



Description


The DIY Sequencer

A Rule-Based MIDI Sequencer

Nest is a modular system that gravitates around the creation of MIDI. The basic ingredients are 20 modules inspired by classic integrated circuits and today's computer features, a clever voice to synth assignment, 12 patch scenes and a quad VST/Synth/MIDI Interface.

What is Nest?

Nest is a modular sequencer. It offers all kinds of modules to generate and process triggers and numbers. You can build highly complex sequencing environments with the aim to produce music with a life of its own.

Nest is equipped with resemblings of classical, transistor-based integrated circuits like Shift Registers or Multiplexers, plus programming tools like the if/else and math modules. Also, a writable Sequencer and flexible Arpeggiator are on board, to make life easy when needed.

A clever voice assignment distributes the 8 possible MIDI voices to up to 4 different sound generators like VSTs, internal Synths and Drums or MIDI channels. This can make Nest not only fun when hosting your favourite plugins, but you can also use it to drive your hardware park.

A New Sequencer Everyday

Hardware is made of interesting components, and tinkering with them is loads of fun, now Nest provides this experience without sourcing parts and magic smoke. It provides access to the main building blocks of modern electronics, and it allows for free patching and experimenting.

You can throw circuits together like Lego bricks, and with that, sheer endless possibilities open up. Create beats from numbers and numbers from beats, distribute patterns across multiple sound sources, build intelligent song machines.

Nest is a super flexible composition tool, which brings together classical transistor logic with modern computer functions. The wire-patching offers endless possibilities and surprises. With 12 patch scenes and a powerful sound interface, Nest is a little laboratory for complex, intelligent music machines.

The Two Faces of Nest - Wire and Sound

On the Wire page, Sugar Bytes created an awesome patch and send it to up to 8 voice slots. The range of possibilities is sheer endless. More than 20 modules to combine, some rather for numbers (pitch, velocity, modulation), some for gates (triggers, rhythms). With 12 Scenes, a patch can have many variations and allows for playing with songs structures.

On the Sound page, you can receive these 8 voices and assign them freely to 4 channels. So you could have a huge layered 8 voice chord, or 3 voices could be drums, another 3 would be a chord and the last two might be a bassline and some samples. Each Channel can be an internal Synth, a VST Plugin or MIDI Out. A fine reverb puts your patch into perspective and adds a silver lining to even the most simple sounds. With the multiple audio outs, each sound channel plus the reverb channel can be routed to an individual DAW channel.

The Nest Story

"Nest has an actual hardware background, as it originates from different hobbyist euro rack modules, which I built over time. Shift Registers and multiplexers are loads of fun on the breadboard, not to forget the Nandulator. There was a hardware sequencer, which would put out off-steps as gates too, and would also provide the internal counter´s binary address as 4 gate sources. So there were plenty of eye-openers along the way and a deep interest in logic circuits. But still, building my dream module would be close to impossible in hardware. And then came the idea to actually emulate the who-is-who of sequencing and logic IC´s in software. Prototypes quickly uncovered great potential, and so Nest was born." (Rico Baade)

Modular Add-On: Vermona Random Rhythm

Sequencer by Softube



Images



Description


This product is an expansion for Softube Modular. If you do not currently own Modular, you can purchase it HERE.

The mad scientist of sequencers.

The Vermona Random Rhythm module is a little bit like Frankenstein’s monster: robustly built with a passionate soul—but also, good-looking. Created in collaboration with German-based Vermona, whose musical heritage producing amplifiers and organs dates back decades, Random Rhythm is an exacting model of the original random-based, dual-channel trigger sequencer hardware.

Concocted specifically for Modular, Random Rhythm lets imagination off-leash while maintaining full control over what’s being sequenced. It says random in the name, but there's a method to the madness.

Easy Experimentation

Created in collaboration with—and authorized by—Vermona, the Random Rhythm module lets your creativity run amuck. And you don't need a PhD in probabilities to play it.

Inspiring Attributes

Take artistry to the edge of imagination with four sliders per rhythm section, a random dual-channel trigger sequencer, and the ability to save presets of your patches.

Odds On Fun

The Softube + Vermona Random Rhythm module is a random-based dual-channel trigger sequencer with a thoroughly novel approach. It gives you two rhythm sections with four sliders per rhythm section. The sliders correspond to the note-values quarters, eighths, sixteenths, and triplet notes and are used to influence the probability that they will appear at each step in the generated pattern. What used to be a chore, programming complex patterns, is now an enjoyable and artistic task.

Speculate On Sound

With Random Rhythm you can work either rhythm section of the module in realtime or dice mode. Set it to realtime and the module continuously generates random values for each note value. In dice mode, the module generates random values for a complete 3/4- or 4/4-bar. It’s not a total unknown, though. In either setting, the sliders still have authority over the resulting sequence.

Rhythmical Laws

Don’t let the name fool you, Random Rhythm can be precise when it needs to be. Use it as a tool to generate or multiply clocks with individual outs for the quarters, eighths, sixteenths, and triplets. The Reset Input allows you to mute the outputs or restart your diced bar. Precision is important, but fun rules Random Rhythm.

Amplified Originality

The Softube + Vermona Random Rhythm module is a magnifying glass for creativity. Use it as the sole rhythm base or as an invaluable addition to other sequencers. The module’s foolproof interface lets you generate beats without thinking about patterns. It’s easy to discover new and exciting sequences that you wouldn’t typically program note by note.

General Ease of Use

Number of Presets


  • Mac OS X 10.13 or newer (older OS versions will not work) (64-bit only).
  • Windows 10 64-bit (older Windows versions may work but are not tested) (64-bit only).
  • Mac: Intel Core i3 / i5 / i7 / Xeon - M1 support pending.
  • Windows: Intel Core i3 / i5 / i7 / Xeon / AMD Quad-Core or newer.
  • Screen resolution 1280x800 or larger.
  • Supported sample rates: 44.1, 48, 88.2, 96, 176.4 and 192 kHz, in both mono and stereo.
  • 8 GB RAM or more is recommended, as well as at least 8 GB hard disk space for installation (individual plug-ins take less space, while sample libraries may require additional disk space).
  • A Softube account is required to register and install the software.
  • An iLok account is required for authorisation of the software.
  • Internet access for downloading installer and managing licenses.
  • iLok generation 2 and up, if you intend to use a physical iLok dongle for authorizing your plug-ins (note that an iLok dongle is not a requirement).
  • In theory, any 64-bit VST, VST3, AU, or AAX (11.0.2 or higher) compatible host application should work.
  • The most recent maintenance release of the DAW application is recommended.

However, due to plug-in host differences between DAWs - and Softube's own rigorous testing standards - Softube only officially test their plug-ins and instruments in the most recent versions of Pro Tools, Logic Pro, Cubase, Live, Studio One, Digital Performer, Reaper and Sonar. Softube plugins are not tested in the non-listed systems, but they most likely work as long as the system requirements are met.

  • This product requires Softube Modular.
  • Make sure that you always use the latest iLok License Manager. It is not included in the Softube installer but can be downloaded from www.ilok.com​
