Iosif – Interference Pattern Step Sequencer

Iosif – Interference Pattern Step Sequencer

Iosif: Interference Pattern Sequencer

K-Teck presents Iosif - a new way to step sequence

Iosif combines 2 innovative techniques to create monophonic melodies

  • 3*integer Interference Pattern generates complex, evolving rhythms
  • K-Teck's advanced Scale Scanning module to apply melody to the rhythm

Iosif makes machine music new again

 

Iosif features:

Iosif can generate complex, non-repeating rhythms

To do this Iosef generates a series of Trigger Pulses from an ‘Interference Pattern’ formed by the interactions of 3 numbers 

These 3 numbers control 3 looping Pattern Counters

Every time a Pattern Counter resets a note is triggered in the Scale Scan Module

The Scale Scanner is taken from Adlais V - it has been improved with full control over 10 octaves

 

About Iosif:

Iosif uses Joseph Schillinger's interference pattern concept to generate complex rhythms

Iosif has very few controls - don't let that deceive you

Iosif is easily the most powerful monophonic step sequencer K-Teck has released

Every control can be automated by Live - clip or arrangement automation

Every control can be modulated by another Max for Live device like an LFO or K-Teck's Paul sequencer

In short - if you like step sequencers you'll love Iosif

 

December 2020 - Iosif has been updated to permit MIDI Note In to control - Step Advance and Root Note

Rhith: Form Sequencer

Rhith: Form Sequencer

Rhith is a powerful Mono/Poly euclidean sequencer ideal for Bass + Lead lines and exploring simple or complex Chord Progressions

Rhith’s simple interface encourages the question ‘What happens if I do this?’ Rhith's answer is most often musical and beguiling. Rhith will appeal to intrepid sonic explorers and musical mathematicians alike. Note and gate sequencers combine with the Shift Registry to produce almost infinite variations on a theme. Most controls can be mapped to M4L modulators (LFOs or K-Teck’s Paul Sequencer are ideal), hardware MIDI controllers and Ableton Live’s automation. The results are always in key and there’s a polyphonic mode too, for chords or harmonies.

Rhith: Features

  • 16 step euclidean sequencer
  • 4*8 step sequencers: pitch, velocity, duration and probability
  • 3*shift registers
  • Mono & poly modes

Features: Shift Registry

  • 3 Shift Registers
  • Generate Variations of Initial Sequence in Mono mode
  • Generate Polyphonic Patterns in Poly Mode
  • 4 Summing Algorithms in Mono Mode

Features: Clock

  • Sample Accurate Clock
  • Triplet and Dotted Note Divisions
  • Clock Multiplier - up to 16 Times Note Length
  • Swing Control
